Why Don't You Put Her In Charge?

So I just read an article in the Times today about the Marines marketing themselves as a kick-ass career option to women. Now, I know a lot of people are thinking, "Fuck that. Why would anyone want to be a Marine, especially with a stupid and apparently endless war on?" And I understand what they're saying, but there's something they're not taking into consideration here.

That something is this: The more women we get into the Marine Corps, the closer we get to the kind of Space Marines depicted in Aliens. I don't know about you, but I want to live in a world where a unisexual group of hard-asses charges into situations and insult each other's gender identity.

Plus, without the women-friendly Space Marines, we'll never get Hudson, the cowardly wise-ass from whose eminently quotable mouth this post's title comes."Game over, man! Game fuckin' over!"
