“People travel alone all the time. I have many friends who enjoy traveling on their own because they meet people and don't have to compromise on sightseeing/activities/etc. By saying that people are passing judgment, I don't intend to accuse anyone of not caring, but so many people see stories like this and make comments like, "Well she shouldn't have been travelling by herself." In making comments of that nature, there's an insinuation that she may have "asked for it." It's similar to the situation where people state that a rape victim shouldn't have been wearing that short skirt. I understand if you're just curious as to why she was there, but I hope you see my point.”

“Arizona Constitution Art. 11, Sec. 6: "The university and all other state educational institutions shall be open to students of both sexes, and the instruction furnished shall be as nearly free as possible."

"Nearly as free as possible..." What a joke! Almost $10,000 a year (more than double what it was when I attended a few years ago) for a year of public in-state tuition. In 2000, tuition to ASU and UA was less than $2,500.”

“Wow. So many posters passing judgment here. Not to mention, many of the comments are founded on hindsight. Who cares why she was there...a woman was bludgeoned to death for resisting a kiss from stranger in an international city. This is tragic under any circumstances. My prayers go out to her family.”

“Gee...he must've forgot about the private royalties the President earned from his books or that University of Chicago is a private school (and that Obama worked there). I guess income earned from those endeavours don't constitute "private dollars." Also, last time I checked "private dollars" isn't a standard measure of industriousness. Not to mention, he turned down a prestigious job after law school to represent victims of housing discrimination and employment discrimination. Sigh.”

“I agree with a couple of Joe's programs, but don't forget that his department has been at the forefront (and on the losing side) of a multitude of various civil rights cases and investigations. He has a tendency to be a media clown and he hasn't demonstrated much respect for individual rights and the Constitution. If Joe will give the money saved back to the county instead of spending it on his pet projects, I'd support charging inmates (who can afford it) for meals.”

“This is a huge stretch. She wanted to be pulled from the ad because no one asked her permission to include her. It seems to me to be an issue of using her likeness...she never disavowed what she originally said in support of equality.”

“But by pulling the ad, she is not endorsing what she believes either. In fact she has drawn more attention to the ad by requesting that it be removed from the media.

“I'm not asking for equal, I'm asking for a uniform standard. Men and women are held to the same standard in many situations...like places of employment...without stripping them of their gender. People are making a bigger issue out of this than there really is. We have job qualifications in place in most fields. If you meet them, you are qualified for the job. If you don't, you don't. It's being blown out of proportion. The military wouldn't be forced to commit to a lower standard. ”

“Ah, I see what you're saying. I just think that the military could frame the policy so that it isn't about gender. There is a seriously legitimate basis for having a high physical standard requirement for combat soldiers, which inevitably will exclude many women, but if the policy doesn't include any explicit gender exclusion there won't be an issue, and any women who may be able to meet that heightened standard will be able to serve. Who knows, maybe it would serve the military well to get rid of separate gender standards. Create a standard that military officials deem necessary for combat, even if it naturally favors men, and let everyone try to meet that standard. If you don't meet the standard, you don't engage in ground combat. ”

robsreports on Nov 28, 2012 at 11:49:39

“Gender is part of the culture of everything.  Even the military.  If there is no gender then we eliminate the different dress uniform (i.e. skirts), eliminate male female bathrooms and many other things.  The military is not equal for genders and you can't just make some things equal.  Equality means 100% of everything.”

“If there are presently separate standards for women, which I assumed there weren't since women are presently barred from these areas of ground combat, then I can see how my comment was confusing. I assumed there was one standard for men, and I meant that the standard shouldn't be lowered to allow women to serve; it should remain the same, and if any women can meet that standard, let them in. If no women can, then no women serve.”

“I think you misread my comment. I meant that women should be held to the same physical standard as men, and if some women are able to meet that standard, they shouldn't be barred from service. If they can't meet the standard that is expected from men, then they won't serve on the ground. Women should just have the chance to see if they can meet the current standard set for men, instead of automatically being kept because of gender. ”

“I think it would be fair and wise to change the policy so that the combat requirements for both genders is uniform. In my opinion, that would mean that women should have to meet the existing male standards if that's what military officials deem as necessary for combat. We shouldn't change the requirement to make it easier for women to be in combat...we just shouldn't uniformly keep them out if some women prove that they can meet the standards. I have no doubt that it will be far fewer females than males who meet the requirements, but why keep a willing and able soldier from serving? ”

robsreports on Nov 28, 2012 at 08:22:27

“The problem is there aren't two standards for men - combat and non-combat.  But making two standards for women would mean that women are now treated differently.  If it is going to be equality then you treat all femal soldier equally just as all male soldiers are treated equally.”
