    I thought feminists were about LESS violence for women? Now they want them to go into combat under-trained and unprepared?

    Uncomfortable with? Not sure I'm understanding you.

    She doesn't want to get it because to her it is about alleged sexism, rather than combat readiness.


    Which is ridiculous beyond all explanation, because MEN who cannot meet the physical requirements for specific combat units can't be in those units either!
    She seems to think war is some kind of PC game.

    She is totally capable to the level of fitness her gender provides.

    Male standards.

    Do you know we're talking about women?

    It is dumb to be unrealistic and refuse to accept facts. These people want to serve and they are able to serve with some adjustments in line with gender. Gender can't be changed. The weight of your kit can.

    Women can keep up with the boys.

    Then why do you keep saying you want different standards for women?

    I'm sorry. I realise it's an exclusive game for boys only.

    ie I would be uncomfortable going on patrol with a female that couldn't carry me out if I got hit.

    I don't blame you at all. I would feel the same.

    I cannot believe you actually called it a game. You really don't realize the seriousness do you?

    .

    So I ask again... what are you going to carry less of?

    Ammo?
    Food/water?
    Body armor?


    Where will you reduce the weight that will not also reduce your combat effectiveness or leave you short of some piece of vital gear?

    Those soldiers don't hump all that stuff for the fun of it. They hump it because they might not survive or complete their mission without it.
