One of the first things the communists did after they took power in China was to give women more power. After all, in communist idealogy everyone has to be equal, right? That's actually why China as a whole today is less patriarchal than Japan and Korea.

believe it or not, China's also drafted a Democratic Constitution lately too. there's a good probability that it won't be "communist" soon. not that anyone cares.

Women make better pilots. They can handle higher g-forces and have faster reaction times.

Link? They don't even have a currency on the free market yet, somehow I doubt this is true.

What? Please explain that statement. All I thought G-forces did to women was giving them saggy tits.

just because on average woman are shorter then men makes them better well there are TALL woman, and they would be just as handicaped as the same size male pilot. likewise a small man would have the same advatage of a average woman

The whole China turning into democracy is totally stupid and American propanganda.

Democracy won't work in China untill the year 2050. (Government said so, they said they still needed to improve living standards, economy, and until then, they'll stick to communism.)

Just look at Russia now, no money, no power, and random submarine sinkings and military failures across the board (living conditions aren't better either). Go Democracy!
