    First, it's a waste of tax dollars to give women guns and have them running around playing GI Jane.

    Second, what happens if a woman is caught in battle? A woman is a liability out there.

    Women are physically, mentally, and emotionally not cut out to be soldiers. For that reason, they have not been soldiers all throughout human history.

    It's only in our modern, metrosexual era where Hollywood replaces reality that we are deluded enouigh to believe that men and women are exactly the same in every respect.
    Its too bad you don't know how to write poll questions.

    Its also too bad you don't know history. Germans in WWII learned from Russians about women in battle.

    You've already often explained your self assigned superior over women on many other threads.

    ...

    Are we supposed to be presenting our opinion of how attractive we find female soldiers?

    If not, this comment seems a bit out of place regarding your opening.

    I don't like them one bit.
    And now you express hostility towards the female soldiers themselves? Are we debating the merits of the idea of women serving in the military, or are we just venting our personal distaste for women who do so?

    First, it's a waste of tax dollars to give women guns and have them running around playing GI Jane.
    No more or less so than it is to give guns to men and have them run around pretending they're GI Joe.

    Second, what happens if a woman is caught in battle?
    ...The same things that can happen if a male soldier is captured?

    A woman is a liability out there.
    No more then here male comrades.

    Women are physically, mentally, and emotionally not cut out to be soldiers.
    Most people aren't physically, mentally, and emotionally cut out to be soldiers.

    This being the reason we train them with a harsh regimen and provide generous health services after their tour.

    For that reason, they have not been soldiers all throughout human history.
    ...

    It's only in our modern, metrosexual era where Hollywood replaces reality that we are deluded enouigh to believe that men and women are exactly the same in every respect.
    The bolded is not held to be strictly true by anyone.

    What real argument is there against women serving in the military that is not based in either ignorance or male chauvinism?

    Re: What's your opinion on female soldiers?

    Overall, I think it's a bad idea.

    I have nothing against women serving in combat roles, per se, but their smaller, weaker frames will undoubtedly mean a lowering of physical standards to do the job. As in most government positions, we'll end up enacting quotas that turn away better qualified people in favor of more politically correct groups.

    There are also long term healthcare costs to think of.

    I think you are mostly wrong, but I do admire that you stated what you thought knowing there would be lots of feedback. I'm fine with women soldiers as long as their nature to stir crap through relationships is expressly recognized and mitigation planned for. If soldier A is mad at soldier B for sniffin' around in his private patch, or maybe fertilizing the patch, then soldier B becomes a candidate for fraggin'. One local war at a time is the limit.

    The healthcare cost is a big deal. In the Corporate world healthcare costs are 4 times as high for women as for men. It is a part of the reason that they make 16% less than men.

    That could be true but I was thinking more along the lines of their smaller, weaker frames will make them ripe for long term injuries due to combat.

    Women should be actively encouraged to fight on the front lines.

    Anything else only lends credence to feminist/misandrist indoctrination.

    Yes, they should be the same. Whatever the job requires.
