To be clear no one should give a fuck about this, but even if they did:

Female generals only appear in civilizations that at some point in history had a female military leader. These people don’t even know what they’re mad about.

It is heartening that these obviously shitty people are also incredibly stupid. If they were smarter it would be scarier.
