    Sexist bastards, or just men in general? Sounds like penis envy, to me.

    Plenty of other positions exist within the military females can do well. Combat arms is not one of them.
    Women are doing more and more combat type roles...

    "..With an increased operations tempo, female Soldiers are stepping up to take on some of the roles traditionally filled by males such as providing unit and convoy security.

    Some units, including military police, are using an increasing number of females for patrols outside the wire. Despite this, there’s often only one female gunner in a particular convoy or patrol at a given time.

    What makes the New York-based U.S. Army Reserve unit, A Company, 403rd Civil Affairs Battalion different is that it doesn’t have just one female turret gunner, but three. In fact, all of the turret gunners for this particular 10-person civil affairs team are females..."

    A civil affairs unit is about as far from being a combat unit as you can get. Not a very good example.

    When the fit hits the shan, the 403rd civil affairs battalion isn't going to be the unit that is called in for combat support.

    Sitting in a gun turret on a hummvee, or a deuce-and-a-half are far different than going on combat patrols, either dismounted, or mounted.

    Not even close. Only the insecure, ignorant few.

    First the conversation in parts of this thread argues women can't physically hack it--which isn't true is many cases, but now it's about if the **** hits the fan? There are real combat operations going in right now that women in all branches of service are involved in (as I showed a few examples of), so what is it exactly they are not capable of doing?

    Engaging in combat is what combat units do...

    Sounds like you have issues with women. Don't be afraid, they won't hurt you. Too much. If they even talk to you.

    I don't have issues with women since I came to grips with the fact that they're all crazy. It's all good.

    Didn't take long for that accusation to come out. Why do Librulz have to always go there?
