Women, at last equal to men, will be required to sign up for the military draft. But considering the yrs during which only men signed on, there should be some decades of 'affirmative draft action' during which ONLY women would be eligible for it. https://t.co/LcKEJerqKS— Janice Fiamengo (@JaniceFiamengo) March 27, 2020
The photo is the joke.
A normal man would feel shame if he were unable to pull his weight in a combat situation or some other dangerous situation when other men were depending on him. Women? How many of them feel entitled to men pulling their weight for them because despite their choice of "profession," they need a man's help or protection? Plenty of videos online of LEOs making an arrest or engaged in a gunfight with a suspect. The females usually hang out in the back, taking a fake "support" position. This moral sickness needs to end.
CWR Dispatch: Forming virtual communities in viral times by Russell Shaw
In an odd way, the pandemic is—or at least can be—a community-forming event.
Academics should be the last (but ideologues are the very last) to be lecturing others about "us" and "community." Why is there selfishness? Why is there a lack of solidarity? And what details did Gilkey gloss over or ignore in his narrative? Was there any informal (or even formal) means of discipline by the interned community to police itself?

Michael Hudson and Paul Craig Roberts: A Brady Bond Solution for America’s Economic Crisis and Unpayable Corporate Debt
Many have rejected debt jubilees and debt forgiveness because it is "unfair" to those (usually including themselves) who kept themselves out of debt. Bragging about having shown personal responsibility within a system that doesn't care about you while showing no solidarity with others who failed those traps? It is almost like the Boomer boast of how they are self-made people and that younger generations should be more like them. It's as if your obeying the rules of the system somehow give you merit -- sure it's framed in the language of responsibility, justice, and so on, but who is defining these terms and with what laws? The laws of the oligarchs. If some somehow prevail and stay debt free, while the weak are exploited, should they look down on those who are exploited? Have they walked in their shoes? Do they know their personal circumstances? Some of those with debt may be irresponsible flakes but are all of them like that? What have you done to encourage personal responsibility for them? If you say that you have no connection to these people, and that you have no responsibility for them, then they are the responsibility of others, and the state. What is it to you if the state decides to undertake certain measures to protect them? You couldn't do so, or you weren't willing to do so.
If you don't like what the system is doing, then work to change it, but show some consideration to those vulnerable to exploitation by the oligarchs and guide them, when possible.

What is her justification for this claim?
I therefore think that at this moment of history it is the task of the laity, and primarily of women, strong in the preference given to them by Jesus as shown in the Gospels, to fight for the rebuilding of our beloved Church, by bringing the truth to light. Nothing good is ever built on lies, one cannot even draw from the treasury of tradition anymore, as we see these days.
The fight against abuse is driven forward with more clarity and determination by women, who often speak the truth with courage and without losing sight of love for the Church. I would just like to mention Marie Collins, the Irish victim whom Pope Francis had called to join the commission on abuse and who - alone - had the courage to resign when she saw that there was no serious progress in the right direction, publicly denouncing this.
