Someone else will get hurt- or killed- trying to cover for what she can't do, or
They'll try to keep her out of actual firefighting because the brass know she can't do the job, and-again- someone else will have to try to cover for their being shorthanded. And what'll THAT do to morale?
And if someone winds up crippled, or killed, Comrade Mayor and his minions will do all they can to cover it up. Because nothing counts more than filling their 'minority' list, and if it takes unqualified people to do it, well, that's just fine. It'll almost certainly be some white male who pays the price, and they don't give a rats ass about them.
Paglia is an interesting sort; she'll vote for people like Obama and wants to vote for Sanders even after noting their, ah, shortcomings. But she also comes out with things like this:
Paglia: ‘Rape culture’ is a ridiculous term – mere gassy propaganda, too rankly bloated to critique. Anyone who sees sex so simplistically has very little sense of world history, anthropology or basic psychology. I feel very sorry for women who have been seduced by this hyper-politicised, victim-centered rhetoric, because in clinging to such superficial, inflammatory phrases, they have renounced their own power and agency.
Which drives the socialists and "We must be protected!" feminists up the walls.
Piece by Kipling I'd not seen before. Truly there's nothing new under the sun.
“THIS is the State above the Law.
The State exists for the State alone.”
[This is a gland at the back of the jaw,
And an answering lump by the collar-bone.]
“There is neither Evil nor Good in life
Except as the needs of the State ordain.”
[Since it is rather too late for the knife,
All we can do is to mask the pain.]
