    Good evening, Pero.

    I sponsored a women's baseball team at one point in my life...my brother was the coach...and I'd stack those gals up against most men. They were just plain MEAN... :

    They played at Firestone Field, and AP might remember that place from when he lived in Ohio....

    Same standards and, for infantry, the female must do something to prevent her period. Bleeding costs too many calories when they are few, the mission is long and there's no logistics. We can't carry extra gear (nor adjust uniform packs for such), even one person, and we cannot carry extra calories.

    I'm sure that sounds bad, but I've been (airborne) infantry and obviously someone bleeding is a problem. We're hungry, we're tired and we've got 10 klicks tonight - bleeding would make such miserable and maybe impossible unassisted, from the additional exhaustion.


    ps. Poll is useless.

    What is great is the progress in technology: Bill Gates is offerring $100,000 to anyone who invents the new condom. That's all we need in a condom: a package containing the two words associated with bad performance: "MICRO" and "SOFT". So, Sorceress, those girls were "stacked". huh? I am in line...;o)

    I think it's fine. There's a lot more to the military now than combat. Now, there are legit concerns about women in combat but if you're "grossed out" (how old are you?) by women in the military that's your weird hang-up.

    Luckily a lot of Infantry and other line units carry tampons with them already right? Look, if the Israelis did it then obviously it can be done in one form or another, lets not talk about it as if its impossible to do.

    In routine training, I suffered seriously many times from hunger and exhaustion. If any of those I were bleeding I don't think I'd have made it.

    Holy crap! This is the most ridiculous post I have probably ever read here.


    Oh that's right.

    This is the guy that when asked to prove god exists answered 'If God wanted to prove his existence, he would do so. The fact that he doesn't should tell you something about the nature of God and religion.'

    http://www.debatepolitics.com/philos...post1061636331

    LOLOL - this still makes me chuckle.

    So God must exist because their is no proof that he exists...

    ...man, what's it like in 1953...cause obviously you are talking to us from that year.


    Have a nice day.

    Basically, we'll see. I'm sure that many women will make quite capable soldiers, and that many will not. Not unlike men.

    PT tests are supposed to be about measuring a person's individual physical fitness level at a certain age, not showing a person can do a specific task a given number of times. This is why there are differences in requirements between men and women, and for different ages. The sexes are different on average and people are different at different ages.

    Run measures endurance and stamina, pushups measure upper body strength, and situps are supposed to measure core strength/stamina. It is all a very basic measurement of how much an individual is working out and putting effort into their workouts.

    You sure are not familiar with women. They bleed once a month. I've yet to see it stop many from functioning. If you think housework and child rearing is easy, allowing for numerous breaks and time to get "replenished", then you never pitched in much.

    Women handle their cycle just fine. Iron tablets and vitamins.
