    You tell me how these women are able to do it? Not to mention.....they're smaller than American Women or Women in the West.

    she plays softball, swims and does cross country but im sure she is rare compared to the out of shape fragile dainty women that choose to go into the military

    are you ever honesty? EVER?

    No I'm going to go out on a limb here and say 40 pushups is harder then a 15sec flexed arm hang.

If men and women will be serving in the same roles and positions, they should be held to the exact same standards. The physical standards should not be lowered for women when people's lives depend on it.
    So what your saying is that women should be the commanders and unit leaders and men the grunts doing the mule's work as a matter of genetic reality. Women consume less calories being smaller in general, needing less to carry and on average make smaller targets.

    Probably most don't agree with you that women are superior, but you may have a point. Women lead. Men carry along the supplies they way mules and horses used to.

    one they seem to have much less gear to carry,but a bigger point it looks like they actually train instead of recieving a double standard.

    Are you saying it is the women's fault for having sex? They would not even have to make separate showering facilities if everyone would grow up. We've all seen it before, why can't people keep themselves controlled?



    This has probably always been a BS excuse along, but especially now that we have disinfectant wipes and other items that can substitute for a soap and water cleansing. This brings to mind a question I often ask myself regarding a lot of issues -- what did they do in the "old days".

    This is also a very good example of how things change dues to changing times and circumstances. During prairie days women were not expected to work the fields, but then when their husband and sons died they were forced to and did a fine job. Another example is Rosie the Riveter. During WWII too many men were off to war and there was no one left to build the weaponry or take other manufacturing jobs. At the time it was thought that women could not "handle" these types of position, but we sure showed them!

    What about construction jobs, astronauts, race car drivers and pilots?

    Before someone again says "but what if it came down to hand to hand combat?", I don't care who has my back, as long as they can deliver the goods to where it hurts. Plus -- with modern warfare how often does it come down to that?


    In a war you always need the grunts and there will always be hand to hand combat...... Like I said I see Navy guys every day and the women are not amazons like Redress makes them out to be.............Its all about political correctness and making the military and and organization for social experimentation. The military is there to fight your wars and protect you.that is the only reason.........Cut out the crap..........

    BUT elsewhere you have explained that children can not be raised without a father so men who have children or who is becoming a biofather must be discharged. If women can't fight and no men with children can fight, how do you figure to have a military combat force with anyone with any experience?

    The Girls of the IDF.....I believe the video answers the question concerning gear.
