Opinion Please!

I'm putting together a flier for a women's veterans summit, which sounds better;

"Real Women Wear Dog Tags"

or

"Real Women Wear Combat Boots"

???

"Real Women Wear Combat Boots"

It's a positive response to the old "Your mother wears combat boots" jokes.

^ dog tags = the [unofficial?] term used by soldiers when referring to the small metal ID plates they wear, usually around their necks on a chain.

These things contain basic stuff like name, rank, unit, ID# and possibly blood type I believe. I think the name came from the resemblance of these small plates to actual ID plates that are used on dog/animal collars to identify them.

<apologies for long winded explanation if you knew the above, but I see you are from Oslo so perhaps are unaware of this...>

my son was actually sent to the principal's office for taunting another kid with; "my Mom wears combat boots and kicks ass". when I was called about it, my response was, "yeah and???"

how's this as a visual?

I think I agree that the 'combat boots' option sounds better, but, anybody can wear combat boots; probably only veterans will have worn dog tags. Just saying.
