Women are now allowed to serve on the frontlines in Australia's military, which means they have equal opportunity to get killed, maimed, captured and suffer shell shock. What joy! Personally? The kind of woman who would join the military and fight a war is not the kind I want to see get hurt. Plus, it sort of sucks the Australia has never had its own foreign policy. People bitch about being part of a commonwealth and not having our own head of state but what's the point if were just going to keep brown-nosing other nations? How about we declare independence and get out of Afghanistan? I think that's more important than if minorities should be allowed to severely fuck up their lives for no reason.
