    I don't know why any woman would want to look like that. It's just scary and gross IMO.

    Perhaps... I'd have to refer that question to a buddy of mine who was a Marine Corps sniper, I don't feel qualified to speculate on whether sniper would better suit women than 11Bravo.

    The Russians found that out in WWII. Woman are naturally more patient and used to putting up with being uncomfortable...

    And make excellent snipers...

    I call that laziness on your part. If you can't kick your way through the glass ceiling, how can you call yourself a modern woman? If you are being discriminated against, stand up, prove it and challenge it. It's your duty. Otherwise, what do you tell yourself when you look in the mirror?

    One of my past-times is the study of military history, tactics and strategy. Anyone who has studied this stuff to any degree could not possibly be as ignorant as you are postulating.

    War is about many things. Politics, diplomacy, economics, logistics, transport, communications, intel, strategy, organization, discipline, training, weapons, tactics, morale, medical assets, and more.

    When you get down to the level that infantry combat units operate on in actual combat, the primary components are tactics and who can shoot, move and communicate better.

    Now, according to some of my younger current-service friends who have spent much of the past decade in combat in the Middle East, the average grunt is often humping around 100 pounds of gear in the field. That includes weapons and ammo, survival gear, food, water, commo, body armor, helmet, NVG, MOPP or CBN gear, and more.

    Now, if you'd like to tell me that humping 100 pounds of gear on your body is NOT a strenuous physical task, be my guest. If you'd like to tell me that running around and diving for cover while wearing all that gear isn't a lot about brute force, please do.

    Again, as I've said several times, any woman that CAN do this is perfectly welcome to fight in a combat unit as far as I'm concerned... but pretending physicality isn't a factor is ridiculous.
    For feck sake, obstruction obstruction obstruction and none of it relevant to whether women can serve. Just reduce the weight of the gear. If men had a brain between them, they'd have done it long ago. Women in the military and the different abilities now, it's just logistics to alter the kit. They need to cater for the force they currently have, not the neanderthal hulk of the past (no offense neanderthals or servicemen).

    eh...why can women not dig holes or trenches? Plenty of women are never done digging holes...they call it gardening/farming in these parts.

    There is no need for half of the manual labour men involve themselves in. Take a different approach.

    Oh sure, just cut the weight of the gear... nothing to it really...

    Honest to GAWD do you not think the military ALREADY tries to cut down the weight that grunts have to hump?? Do you not think that the grunts THEMSELVES try to find and buy lower-weight gear out of their own pocket when they can?

    Well damn it is a good thing you've come along to set us all straight, we'll just cut the weight load that grunts carry in half, damn we would have thought of that already if we weren't all testosterone-poisoned and WANTED to hump 100 pounds over mountains just for the fracking FUN of it...
