    You wish.

    I understand, no view but yours matters (to you).

    The entire north of this country is used for military training and I am looking at the Trident missile base from where I sit. It is obvious soldiers carry gear and sometimes for long distances and that being the case it is equally obvious the weight of the gear will have to be reduced if women are involved. The only reason it will take time to do that is men are in control of the military and you need a jemmy to make men change anything.... "We don't like change. We just like men. Sir yes sir"...

    Your position is actually really insulting to women. "No really, we're weaker, and that's ok! It's better that we drag the team down instead of having to do the same things the men do. I men hey, they should be chivalrous and carry our gear for us"
    Stick your chivalry up your arse. I work with sexist twits day and daily and they don't get away with it any more than you will. Women will go into combat if they decide to and will be effective there, as they are in the other forces. If men can do it, women will romp it and the force will improve for their presence. No doubt the women will end up carrying the bulk of the military burden as they already carry the bulk of every other job that needs properly done.

    Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.

    It's amazing what you can do when you are in a hostile/emergency situation.

    LOL, in the same post that you say women are too weak to carry proper gear, and should have to carry less, you go on to say that women will end up carrying the bulk of the burden.

    Jesus, you're just trolling now.

    Have you lost track. We're talking about the military and women being able to pass physical fitness tests.



    War is directed by political will. Political will at the moment is moving toward female soldiers in combat.
    Are you being serious? This is getting to be so ridiculous that I can't tell anymore. Can anyone really be so dense? Yes, women can join, AS LONG AS THEY CAN PASS THE PHYSICAL FITNESS TEST. I put that in caps just for you, hoping you will be able to see it and understand it this time. They have to be able to carry their OWN gear, which ends up weighing a lot because there are a lot of things people need when they are out in the middle of nowhere. Do you understand that part? Also, if one of the bigger guys who could perhaps weigh over 250 pounds easily, goes down in a fire fight with the enemy and is in the danger zone, the women in the unit HAVE to be able to pull and/or carry this man out of danger's way. Part of being part of a unit is being able to defend, back up and rescue other people in your unit. Do you understand that?

    Oh, so even by your own reckoning, the infantry will be less-equipped and less-prepared because of it. Do you suggest they carry less ammo? Less life-saving gear? What should be cut?

    And then you say the only reason anyone could object to this is because men are stubborn pigs.

    I simply cannot fit my mind into a point of view this comically narrow.

    HOLDUP. you just said you work with sexist twits, then going off firing comments like "The only reason it will take time to do that is men are in control of the military and you need a jemmy to make men change anything.... "We don't like change. We just like men. Sir yes sir"..."

    Two separate contexts of strength.
