    Your answer is to discriminate because they will complain about discrimination. Did you think before you posted that? Because thinking is always better before posting.
    In every case, be it civilian or military, the standards have been reduced because of yells or complaints of discrimination.

    The reality of the situation does not match your wishful thinking.

Whined and cried about their ****ing pansy ass arms getting too ****ing tired from paddling through the rapids, while I paddled their asses non-stop through the flatwater in addition to the rapids. Whined and cried on overnights when there wasn't a bathroom for them to use, or that the ground was too ****ing hard to sleep on, or that there were bugs, or OMG there's a snake!!!!

    So, due to my personal experiences with men in stressful, physically demanding, wilderness situations, I must conclude that all men are sissies and cannot handle stress and fatigue the way women can.
    Comparing guys on vacation to military. Wow, just wow.

    Yea don't we all.

    She just has very stong feelings about strong females, she is one. So I can understand even if I don't agree.

    So let me get this straight.

    The standards have been lowered. You think this is wrong (as do I). So your solution is to exclude women altogether, rather than simply having a single standard. You want to stop complaints about discrimination...by imposing discrimination.

    Yeah, that makes sense.

    Re: Navy will soon let women serve on subs

    I don't really know what to think about this. The only strong opinion I have is, "Let's be sure that we aren't going to impair the effectiveness of our military for the sake of some social-justice imperative."

    This might be the big test. If men and women can manage in the environment of a submarine without serious problems, then they can probably manage ok in any other military setting.

    All I want is for the results to be honestly reported and honestly analyzed. If it really isn't a problem, ok.... but if it IS a problem, let's not cover it up and suger-coat it just because the results are not PC.

    It's not a bad comparison.

    Some guys, including some of the tough guys on this thread, just can't handle the idea of women being strong. They really need to get their asses kicked by a woman, and they will do absolutely anything to avoid that. Including making some really twisted arguments.

    The sleeping arrangements on a sub are one thing, but I don't buy into the argument that women are not physically able to handle it. Women are taking on roles throughout the military and seem to be handling it just fine.

    Some current military women; and some physically fit civilian ones too:

    So, how many combat patrols, humping rucks, weapons, ammo and water does that flight crew go on? Aren't they supposed to get a certain amount of sleep in a 24 hour period? Is it only 4 hours, like in an infantry unit?
