Many women did contribute to the war, they did not fight in it they stepped up back home taking up jobs to support the men making ammo to be sent to them filling roles to keep the country going while the men were away. I would never say the women didn't help with the war but they did not fight the war.

By rewriting history and portraying women as battlefield warriors, they're actually minimizing the real contributions that the women of the various factions made during the war. The entire shit show would've fallen apart in a matter of days if all of the women suddenly stopped showing up to the factories and such.

Their contribution cannot be understated, our great grandfathers/grandfathers needed those women back home just as badly as the women needed the men to be out in the field humping a ruck and a rifle.

True, and those that did fight didn't wear pink hairstyles like EA would have us believe.

If we are going to worry about cosmetics I would say we need a word with Valve about counter terrorist units using custom painted guns and strangely finished knives. I can dismiss character looks and equipment cosmetics as it is a game and giving people the option to customize the character to their liking. Before they started pushing and reinforcing "the character is female" I just saw it as a cosmetic choice of what the player wanted to look at while playing, even now I don't really care if the character is male or female it is when the story cares that they are female or male.

They got jobs in factories because they didn't feel like starving to death, not necessarily because they wanted to help with the war.

Regardless of why they went to the factory they contributed, many of the men fighting contributed but were drafted they did not go there to stand for their country they went because they had to.
