    THAT is an outright lie. You denigrate the service of anyone you disagree with....you have numerous posts denigrating the service of a number of different people including people on this very site. Have you forgotten that you were made to apologize to someone on this board not too long ago after you denigrated his service?

    It's amazing what you can do when you are in a hostile/emergency situation.
    And Gandhi's mountain was at least as high as this one.

    I'm "dense". What do you expect? (over your head)

    While you go on and on and on with the futile, impractical and unrealistic assertion that because male proportions allow them to carry X weight, women must somehow change their physiology to be like men. Women are built differently and they are entitled to be what they are.

    As to heavy lifting, based on male track records we all know how it will go. If men can get away with it, the women will eventually be dragging all of the kit while men will be standing about scratching their parts and making rude noises while talking a lot of crap about sports. I expect that's why you are so pissed that women can't carry more.

    What is the point of you? You were talking about whether women can lift an injured soldier out of harm's way.

    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?

    No, try to keep up. Lighter and less are different.

    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.
    I'm crushed by your inability to see past the end of your nose. [/sarcasm]

    Why don't you list the items in the kit you know so much about and I will help you work through them with helpful suggestions.

    Is there a word of a lie in that comment?

    I am happily married and a happy mother of a big giant son. I am also a realist.

    I was trying to imply they're all the same to me, but avoid being pilloried for blanket sexism. Thank you for smoking me out.

    Except they're not. What necessity would you remove from the woman's pack to make it easier for her?

    Well, I got that men are all the same to you as you've demonstrated here quite clearly. My question was...... where did this attitude toward men come from? Who was he?

    Heh. You don't have an answer.

    It's your own inconsistency and your own problem, so I'm under no obligation to help you out of it.

    I wouldn't remove anything. I would bring in the techies and reduce the weight of everything in the pack.
