Our soldiers are awesome, the men... and the *women*.

My heart goes out to everyone affected by the terrible attack at Fort Hood.  You are all in my thoughts.

But one thing stands out for me as a bright beacon of hope...

Women. In combat. Even when no-one expects it.

The bravery of the soldiers at Fort Hood in the face of a brutal and cruel attack was profound.   Stories of individuals who did everything they could to save their comrades are a comfort after something that makes no sense.

All the soldiers and civilians who risked their lives in this attack are true heroes.

But doesn't everyone think it's time to shut down the right wing anti-women politicians and officially admit what has already been proved again and again on the ground, and let the women who deeply desire to give their full service to the armed forces to have all the opportunities they deserve?

The opposing factions in congress and their lobbyist cronies call themselves anti-feminist, but let's face it, they're anti ALL women.  They don't believe that women can hack it in combat. 

Clearly, they're not paying attention.
