Women Drones

Alexis ponders it:

They’re a way of waging a war that men support far more than women. One reason might be that, as Eichenberg summarizes earlier research, “women were far more sensitive — and negative — about the prospects of civilian and military casualties in the war.”

So much of the discourse over drones has focused on the possibility and reality of civilian casualties that perhaps this has tinted the subject for women across the globe.

Another might be that men just really *like* drones and the prospect of troop-less war.
