Politics of Gender Identity"

Stirling, S.M. "The Woman Warrior," in _New Destinies_, vol IV,
Summer 1988. Baen Books.
This is a well thought-out article by S.M. Stirling entitled _The
Woman Warrior_. Stirling defends the idea of women serving in the
military. This is a response to opinions expressed by editors who
had negative comments about female warriors in fantasy stories.
Although _New Destinies_ is aimed at science fiction readers, this
article is factual and interesting. There is a list of references
at the end of the article.
