Obviously women are not as big or strong or fast as men on average. You guys aren't providing any profound input when you tell us that. But when you put these qualities on a graph, it's a bell curve for men and women that overlap. That means there are some women who are stronger and faster than the average man. And some men who are weaker than the average woman. So what we need to do is set minimum requirements that EVERYONE needs to pass. A lot of men won't meet the standards, and fewer women will. But for anyone who can prove they are physically capable of performing the job, there is absolutely no reason to exclude them. Every other reason I've seen men post on here to exclude women are due to weaknesses of men. You think women will be raped? Guess what, that means we have a problem with the MEN in these units. You think men's morale will break when he sees a woman injured? Again, an issue the men will have to get over. Really guys, if you wanted to join a group and fight for your country and it was something you were capable of doing, would you really accept that you weren't being let in because the existing members would be uncomfortable with it?
