SINCE THEY CAN’T BE DRAFTED, THEY’RE NOT AS EXCITED ABOUT RISK-FREE WAYS TO KILL THE ENEMY? Why Do Women Disapprove of Drone Strikes So Much More Than Men Do? As a commenter says: “First thing that comes to mind is that since men are more likely to be soldiers, they’re more likely to think about it from the soldiers’ perspective, whereas women are more likely to just think about it from the civlians’. So women hear about drone strikes and think of civilian deaths, men hear about it and think about how soldiers aren’t being sent in because drones are instead.”
Alternative, evolutionary-psychology theory: Men who kill remotely via drone don’t demonstrate their genetic fitness in combat.
