“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”
- Alexander Hamilton. Spiritual father of #NeverTrump
You can argue that some jobs aren't as physical but when were talking combat arms thats different.
I started my career off as a 17 year old 11B Infantryman.
Its not a lifestyle that even all men are suited for and many who do will do it for a couple of years and get out or reclass.
I remember the wash out rate in Airborne and AirAssault schools for women were very high and these were schools my battle buddies and I considered easy.
I just don't see being able to point out a handful of women that might make it as justification to change everything to make civilians feel better about themselves.
This thread should be just called the male-sexist-ranting-of-their-superiority thread.
In fact, women are superior to men in many regards, including related to combat. Here are examples:
1. Women are inherently smarter than men.

Women are scientifically considered exceptionally better at talking than men. It is because the females are supposed to have higher brain levels than the male gender.
The scientists also consider that the women have a special “language protein” called Foxp2 which plays an important role in language development, as per the new research.
The research has its reasons why women are superior in talking than men; the women can also talk nearly three times more than men comfortably without any fatigue.
2. Women are linguistically more skilled. (link above)
Since foreign deployments involve interacting with foreign nationals, women would be a superior occupation force and superior at interrogations.
3. Women are better snipers due to having superior patience (link previously provided and proven in the Russian military in WWII
4. Women have a higher threshold of pain. A male soldier would be disabled by pain quicker than a woman, making the male soldier less viable. A man soldier also would more surrender to pain and be more broken if captured in interrogation.

5. Women require less food, meaning require less support and supply. (same link)
6. Women have higher social intelligence. (same link)
7. Also, having two X chromosomes provides a huge health advantage. This reduces their medical costs during and after service, allowing more military funding per soldier. (same link)
Actually, I could go on probably for a couple of pages. However, I think the premise men here are making is that if there is ONE shortcoming of a gender, that gender should be banned.
Accordingly, in that reasoning, men should no longer be allowed in the military or in combat roles due to their numerous inferiorities to men.
Now you men can keep on with your furious claim that you are superior. You aren't, but try to keep your dignity as having been or are low rankers in the military.
I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
EVEN THOUGH I've acknowledged that point several times now, many here STILL can't seem to grasp that others don't care if the women can meet the physical requirement standards.
The simple fact that they are WOMEN is enough apparently for some to keep them OUT of the military because they are to be blamed for men's lack of control. This is reminiscent of making women wear burkas because men cannot control themselves. IT is utterly ridiculous.
If you guys cannot control yourselves around women, then that is YOUR problem and NOT the women's fault.
