    If it's a matter of a woman replacing a man I'm against it. If it's a matter of "woman or nobody", hell yeah - throw them in the fray.

    Hell, part of me thinks that we should just get a small pack of women who are fully combat trained, put them together long enough that their cycles sync up, wait for them to PMS, and just drop them behind enemy lines and watch them kick and scratch their way to victory.

    They'd probably see a pack of men and be thirstier for blood than the worst Viet Congs.

    Please do your own work. I posted it already. If you want it, go and look for it.

    Not really, as those I remember (admittedly I haven't been paying any attention) you seem to be misquoting or attempting to put inaccurate words in the mouth of others. I don't respond or defend points I haven't made, so feel free to bugger off or even post your own opinion about the OP.

    I luckily don't even need a quote, I can just refer to this post here:

    The weight of their kit is one of many deciding factors. We don't carry heavy ass **** for no ****ing reason. We do it because it's ammo, medical supplies, food, water, radios, batteries, and other mission essential gear. If they can't carry the 100+ lbs on their backs and still move out at the same speed on a patrol through the mountains, then they have no reason to be there, because they are a danger to everyone.

    It is true that not everyone can be a grunt or an alpaca engineer and of course not everyone wants to be. It is also true that the people who direct the senior managers of grunts, are rarely grunts themselves. Therefore it doesn't really matter a f*** what my experience is. But some of us have kicked through sexist ceilings in our day regardless and are able to tell you whatever you and the other old boys think is irrelevant. If women want to go into combat, they will. You will have to like it.
    The fact is, you have zero experience in combat, and are simply arguing from a philosophical perspective. Yeah, I agree, women are equals intellectually and legally, but even as you admitted, they are NOT equal physically. I have no problem with women who can fit the same standards as the grunts. I do have a problem with people like you trying to drag down the standards to fit the weak.

    In other words, "I don't know how to answer it so I'll just pretend like I answered it and ignore you!"

    See? Josie and Viv are proving that women belong in combat. Look at the slapping and hair-pulling here.

    Nah, I'm not a physical fighter. Women mostly just bite at each other with words.

    You must have somehow overlooked the many posts relating to the revolutionary concept of reducing the weight of the kit. It's been done to death.

    The fact is, you have zero experience in combat, and are simply arguing from a philosophical perspective. Yeah, I agree, women are equals intellectually and legally, but even as you admitted, they are NOT equal physically. I have no problem with women who can fit the same standards as the grunts.

    Don't worry, guns make everything gender equal anyway (according to some characters who post here).

    It is not an admission. There is nothing wrong with the level of fitness women attain. It is simply a different level from men. US women are often giants, like Euros standing on a box. Possibly fitter and stronger than some foreign national male adversaries.

    Not all women fight by pulling hair and scratching. Some have been trained to fight just like a man.

    Take kick boxing, for example.
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.

    I did have a lot of experience fighting my brother growing up. I learned that I'm strongest when I can use my legs to bring his chubby body down.
