No Lives Matter
The study revealed that men tried to protect and assist women rather than continue their attack. As a result, they not only put their own lives in greater danger, but also jeopardized the survival of the entire unit. The study further revealed that unit morale was damaged when men saw women killed and maimed on the battlefield," Luddy said.
I would chat with her when I'm feeling particularly snarky, but I wouldn't ever call her on the phone.
Any military role should be filled depending solely on the qualifications of the applicant. Anything else will degrade quality by limiting the potential talent pool. Banning gender from combat roles needs to go, as well as having different physical requirements for each gender.
Claiming that women have some inherent unsuitability to combat is simply untrue. Pavlichenko was a soviet female sniper in WW2 who achieved more confirmed kills (309) than any American sniper, ever . Yet, under current policies she would not be allowed join a combat unit in the U.S. or Britain. Obviously most woman (or men) would never reach that kind of skill, but a blanket ban prevents such capable women from being able to contribute.
As far as damaging the reproduction ability of the population, such concerns are unfounded. We (at least U.S.+U.K.) are a monogamous society, we marry one other person for love, not based on optimal reproductive rates. Despite millions of men killed during WW2, we didn't see men have multiple kids with multiple wives to boost the population. In fact, having casualties match the gender proportions of our country would lead to more theoretical pairings, and thus higher birth rates.
I don't think that the physical difference between men and women would justify that, as many women have got a great physical condition, and are able to fight as well as men. The Russian army has used many women as snipers during WWII for example.
Still, I think they should not risk to be killed. It's a morale and personal point of view. It may sound masochist or paternalist, but I think that, like kids, women should not be on the battlefield (well...no one should be on the battlefield...but especially women and kids)
Note the bolded part. 1948 Arab-Israeli War. Sex roles, interaction among the sexus, social ethics and more have changed significantly since then. It's time to do a new study, this one is useless in a modern context.In fact, women have been barred from combat in Israel since 1950, when a review of the 1948 Arab-Israeli War showed how harmful their presence could be.
