    Which is my point.

    If they want to be in a line company the need to meet a line company standard.

I'm talking about making movements with rucks that weigh as much as she does and other members of the PLT having to take some of her load because she can't handle it.

    I've seen the women that wear the same uniform as me out and about doing PT and doing Ruck Marches (with only 35 pounds) and they can't keep the pace that their unit is going at and my unit RUNS with ours.

    Forgive me for not having faith in a woman because I've seen them in action and they can't survive the cut.
    For the sake of asking...because you guys HAVE the experience and know about this. Lets say you get a 5'11 185lb Viking-descendant "female" that can do all you can...I mean I know 1 out of a million, she also has done multiple Test or 19nor cycles and DHT derivatives...her sexual preferences may even be on our side...

    For the sake of asking...assuming she can even outbest the WEAKEST and SLOWEST MALE member of infantry...again a 1 in a MILLION chance...but would YOU have a problem with "her" serving in the infantry lines?

    Thanks, this proves a point. We are not talking about gender (or race) discrimination (stab meant at mitch, no shame just making sense here...).

    Now Mitch, try to understand english and learn the fact it is about the EXPERIENCED men who risk their lives day by day for us to be able to be free, and either address the points they are bringing to the table (in a polite and humble manner since you haven't served at all, just like I haven't) or quietly bow out of this thread.

    See my above post.

    I think PT standards would be better suited if they were MOS dependant rather than Gender Dependant. If they can meet the standard I meet then that is perfectly fine, BUT the standard they meet now is not going to cut it.

    As I said before with the Airborne school comparison, that school used to be difficult (when my dad did it in the 50's) and now its easy as fuark. And the reason for that is because with a woman having to run such a slow time (in comparison) all of the runs are slower to accommodate the women in the class.

  8. Correct me if I'm wrong but women are subject to compulsory service including combat in the Israeli military. Last I knew, no one doubted how bad ass the Mossad is.

    If I may...my opinion is that Gender Equality must be BOTH WAYS then. Not only that they allow female members to serve on the infantry...but that they are THUS brought up to face the same standards and requirements male members are. In that case I think some of you experienced members would agree. The issue (if I understood correctly) would still be a matter of team cohesion and psychological requirements that are different for the male/female psyche.

    It is funny how our government and females ask gender equality and political correctness...and yet they are met with lower standards and expectations for these sort of things. I agree with you guys, again humbly, that it is about winning battles/fronts/wars and not about political correctness, if they want to serve the lines...at least meet the exact same standards a man does, not some "equivalence" for their gender.

    I don't know about that but if it is true you would have to take into account the inherent culture difference between us and them.

    I agree with this. Same job=same physical requirements. No excuses.

    Culture doesn't have any effect on their physical ability to perform. But they are held to exactly the same standards as the men and if they don't perform well enough they don't get sent to combat

    And I was going to add that but figured it had been appropriately addressed already.

    The fact remains that the dynamic of the unit would have to change, in fact anytime we (my unit) are doing anything and women are around we have to be careful about what we say because sexual harassment can get you dishonorably discharged. And our sense of humor is incredibly crude.

    That's what I was referring to as the culture difference being that women there (I assumed at least) would be held to the same standard.

All these veterans are experienced and basing their opinion on experience. What do you base your couch vision opinion from? Have you served in the military? NO ! Have you ever been accountable for another persons life in the situations these infantrymen face on a daily basis while deployed? NO! You have no footing to make your point valid. You dare tell veterans they are scared when they've served and fought ? You are not only looking ignorant you are acting like a coward.

    I agree, we came to the common ground that you are an idiot and are literally talking out of your ass.

    At least that seems to be the general consensus.

    your argument of experience could be used in many debates but still doesn't change anything whatsoever your simply hiding behind it.

    I get alot of you guys served and regardless of how this is presented will continue to look at it only one way which is fine and I get and understand why. However if she is an American and so should she choose she should have the right to defend her country in any branch she picks.the attacks,insults and negative reps are uncalled for and show a huge lack of ability to controls oneself when presented with a debate which could have been kept civil.
