    Yep, really.

    Unit cohesion could be a potential problem, and there would need to be a plan in place before I could say whether I actually supported the full change or not. In theory, it is workable and as such I think we should at least look seriously into doing it.
    The only way for the unit cohesion issue to be fixed, would be fore males and females to live together and that ain't never gonna happen.

    It's workable in theory and just like gobal warming, it's just a theory, not reality.

    Tashah's spot on with the segregated units, but that ain't gonna hapen, either, because of discrimination laws forbidding segregated units in the United States military.

    800,000 women joined the red army in WW2 with many serving in combat roles. They proved more than capable during the most brutal combat in human history. Military roles should be available to anyone who can meet the requirements needed for that position.

    They served in segregated units, too.

    For the second time in this thread, it's not about a woman's ability to be an infantry soldier.

His natural desire to be seen as "saving a woman's life" may get in the way of a smart military or combat decision. They also sometimes have to bathe and such in very tight and non-private quarters, which I think, is inappropriate.

    I think women are great in other roles, but front line combat needs to remain all men.
    It's not breed in men to protect women, that is all social conditioning.

    Apdst is 100 % correct in this. I don't agree with him in any post often, so figured I should point it out when I do.

    Segregated combat units would probably be the best way to implement this. I agree mixing them would be too trouble.

    Whether it's social, or genetic, it's still a fact.

    It'll never happen, though.

    I've always believed that all units should be segregated, in the Army and the Marine Corps, anyway.

    Very true, I was just pointing out the error in his reasoning.
