Women Who Do “a Man’s Job” [trigger warning]

Often sexists will defend their views with ‘women only want careers, they don’t want the real men’s jobs’. And ‘men have it bad’ because they are ‘cannon fodder’.

Well, here’s a movie, a true story, that shows what happens to women who want to do a man’s job (spoiler….as if you didn’t already expect it…. : they are sexually assaulted).

And here’s a documentary about women in the US army (yes, they are raped):

The Invisible War (link to full movie):

Incidently, look at these women…do they look like sluts? No. Still, they are raped. So there goes that theory.
