    I think we should have an all woman army. I mean come on, men did it alone for thousands of years....they owe us. Of course they'll have to take the kids with them.

    the problem with segregated female combat units is that you would be hard pressed to find enough females physically capable to make it logistically and financially feasible. and, of course, you run into the age old "separate but equal" issue.

    Not the part I mentioned already being addressed, or at least not the part I meant to say was already being addressed(the different standard part). Yes, what you point out is a potentially very real issue with such a proposal.

    No they won't. They're a bunch of pussies.

    but when I have to go a week without a shower because there are only two shower tents and 200 guys have to share one and 5 females get the other to themselves., or I have to cram into an 8 man tent with 15 other guys so that the 5 females can have a tent to themselves... that just ain't right.

    other than that, if a female can physically and mentally hack the rigors of combat, I have no problem with them being there.

    so that is my only problem with women in combat. because there are so few that could actually handle it physically it requires the males to sacrifice even more on the basic niceties, due to the army's stance on segregating males and females.
    Yeah - the whole 'special priveledges' because of gender tick me off.

    It's not, "special privledges". It's policy. A policy that is in place to cut down on sexual harassment and intent to rape charges.
