    Okay, the thread has gone silly now. I'm sure we can find 10,000 of these anytime we want.

    Are women unable to carry the average infantry equipment?

    Are women unable to shoot as accurately as men?

    Are women unable to make decisions as fast and/or as accurately as men?
    If you are that interested you are going to have to wade through it, I am not. Already posted it and it has been a long thread.

    I have made my position clear and backed it up with evidence. No one has given any evidence at all to counter this.

    PS females don't do pull ups at all. They do flex arm hang. Not even remotely the same thing.

    I spent 7 years in the Army as a medic. We were taught that we were non-combatants. If we were captured, we were NOT POW's, but considered retained personnel. We could be armed with an M16, but could only use it to defend ourselves and our patients. If we used it offensively, we would lose our non-combatant status and if captured, we'd be considered POW's. Additionally, we could also be subject to trial for war crimes.

    If you disagree with this, then back it up with a link from the Defense Department.
    Combat medics aren't non-combatants.

    Our military should not be limited to personnel because of a few's inability to focus on their job rather then what is in their pants. If anyone cannot handle the mental and physical requirements of their post then perhaps they should request for different means of employment.
    We're talking about reality; not fantasy.

    What happens when a sub is operational and a female sailor is raped? She has to stay on the sub until the cruise is finished--for months--or does the sub break from it's mission to return to port? Think about how impractical and how dangerous to the mission the latter would be.

    I bet she couldn't hump a ruck all day, because body builders's bodies are so accustomed to getting alot of calories everyday and when her daily caloric intake is cut in half--which happens in the field--she'll be useless.

    There is no evidence. The only evidence he has is of discrimination in the military. He has evidence that the standards were lowered (big shocker that none of us dispute that standards were lowered). He has absolutely no evidence contrary to what the rest of us have actually been talking about.

    Doesn't matter how many there are. Only that there ARE women who can pass the same physical standards as men in the military.
