I am raising three daughters, and each one of them thinks I am pretty cool and look up to me for what I do for a living.  However, there are some people who tell me that I should not encourage any of my girls to get into the type of work I do, because its just "not a place for women."  I strongly disagree.................how about you?

Do you tell these people where to go and how to get there the quick way?  Your profile doesn't show you as verified LEO but I'm assuming you work somewhere in policing?  Who the heck are these people who make comments like this?  That's the dumbest thing I've heard in a while.  Besides if your girls decide they want a career in Law Enforcement and truely are dedicated to serving they will, regardless of who supports them and who doesn't.


If you don't stand behind our troops, feel free to stand in front of them.

In this day and age, that argument is no longer valid.  Women belong and are needed not only in our profession but everywhere else.  So you go on and be a good mom and role model for your girls and tell the others to stick it.


In Honor of the Fallen.

Over in Israel, women are in the military, not only that, but they are used to train all the new recruits for combat....


Women are highly respected in the military over there, compared to here in the US.


I would not let what a few critics say ti dissuade your daughters from doing something they might want.


There is a great need for people who care enough to serve and protect others.


When I was growing up, anything I even thought about doing, I was given all the reasons why I could not do it.....don't let people tell your daughters what they can't do just because they are girls.


 


From a girl.


=o)


 


p.s. I have two marksmanship ribbons in shooting: M-16 and M-22....we can shoot good.

As long as she's in it for the right reason(s) and earns her spot just like the men did, there is absolutely NO reason for a woman not to be in law enforcement.
