Many wished they'd never joined the MP's. The bottom line is that in my experience, which spans 16 years of service, is that it doesn't matter what role you serve in in the military. Vagina's don't dry up and penis' don't fall off. Eventually it will happen, and eventually problems will arise. Trust will damaged, jealousy, protectionism.

    We can all say that we'd be professional, and I know we'd do our best. 180 days in bush would change that.

    My opinion.
    I think it's an interesting opinion. So would you have non-integrated combat units?

    Sometimes, invisible balls can be quite heavy.

    I would have no problem with that. A warfighter is a warfighter, regardless of the sex. A woman can kill you just as dead.

    Yeah. Apparently, the rules have gotten a little blurry in the past 8 years or so, eh?

    I think the asians have proved on many different battlefields that "it's not the size of the dog in the fight but the size of the fight in the dog".


    Not all women are suited for life in a combat unit just as not all men are. Physical and Mental ability (NOT SEXUAL PLUMBING) should determine who gets in and who doesn't.

    And I am sorry if this hurts your macho image, but if you can't handle the fact that a little female just might be the better fighter, then your unit and your team is probably better off without your insecurity issues screwing up unit cohesion.
    From beginning to end funny.

    Why? Am I supposed to wander around pretending that I have the upper body strength of a man despite all evidence to the contrary? We rarely ever integrate sports competitions because of the obvious fact that if we did women wouldn't make it on to most teams. But let's PC up the combat field. We'll separate the men from the women in world competitions on swimming, basketball, and everything else but on the battlefield we'll pretend the sexes are the same. Makes sense, right?

    And in case you are wondering, with the proper training, women outperform men in stress tests hands down.



    you sure about that? lets see the evidence.

    That's my thinking. I've worked with some extremely ruthless women over the years.
