    LMFAO

    And yet if that was a pic of a man, you wouldn't say that.

    ****ing hypocrisy abounds in this thread.

    What happens when a man commits some other crime? Does the ship break mission?

    They don't even need to be as muscular as her to perform "combat" roles. The fact is there are some women that can perform to the same standard as men, so why not just keep the standards the same for men and women and if women can meet the standards for traditional combat roles, then let them do what they want.

    Don't get me wrong, I know men and women are different and I am happy about that, but there are some women than can meet and/or exceed the same standards as men.

    Anyway, there are no front-lines in the operations going on today, so most are seeing combat already.

    It will cause a breakdown in discipline. Rape and sexual harassment rates will rise. Unit integrity will suffer. Commanders's time that could be used to train their troops will be used up will paperwork for all the new discipline problems, therefore, training will suffer. Just to name a few.

    That's your assumption.

    She did manage to do 4 years in the USMC, so I bet she could handle it.

    Do you suggest that a female rape victim be forced to stay on board and do her job, as if nothing ever happened? Or should she receive immediate counciling and medical treatment?

    What was her MOS? It wasn't a combat arms MOS.

    Sure, but she did fine in basic training I would imagine, and I still think she could handle pretty much any MOS.
