    So do people need expereince to comment on something or don't they NP. You have said it both ways now. Which is it?

    Funny, there are plenty of people out there with self control, but I guess those don't end up in the military, huh?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Then by your own logic, I don't have to have combat experience to know that women should be allowed to serve in combat as long as they can meet the physical requirements.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    It's very easy for someone who has no clue about being a woman to say they shouldn't serve. If they were one, they might have a different opinion.

    I think women, especially equal rights activists, should be required to serve in combat.

    So I take it you reject out of hand the notion that any women could possibly meet the standards that men must meet in order to fight?

    Unless the military dumbs down the standard, the average woman will have to work much harder than the average man to "meet the standards that men must meet."

    Obviously, yes. But that wasn't the question that I asked.
