Yes, and they should be integrated with the males
Yes, but keep their units seperate from male units
No, but women should be given some basic infantry skills beyond basic training
No, women should never serve in a role where they may encounter combat
It is not open to debate as it really is only my opinion on that particular aspect. So you are correct.
Unlike females overall in combat units where evidence exist to say no, in this particular case it is just my own anecdotal experience being attached to such a unit.
No Lives Matter
In 1948, during the Arab-Israeli War, the IDF discovered that male soldiers would drop out of the attack to help a female soldier, who was beyond help, quicker than they would do the same for a male soldier. This hendered the mission, it damaged morale and unit cohesion. It's the opinion of every real army in the world that co-ed combat units are a bad idea.Originally Posted by Apocalypse
You do not explain why it wouldn't go well(according to your own opinion), so you don't really leave me room for debating the issue.
Even the Soviets didn't allow co-ed units during WW2 and they had 5 year olds digging tank ditches in front of Moscow, so they obviosuly didn't care about who got killed and who didn't. They had male and female units. One of the baddest tank units in the Red Army was an all female battalion. Probably the highest scoring squadron in the Soviet air force was an all female night fighter squadron that the Germans dubbed, "The Night Witches".
So, can we please stop using the, "egotistical white men", argument? Please??

I find the idea of such a ban ridiculous, Israel has won that war against 7 different nations, so how exactly was using females in the field 'so dangerous'?
In fact, the females role in the battles was just as big as the males' role, and one could say that without the female combat soldiers, Israel might have not survived past its first day.

Two points to make.
1: Females cannot write their name in the snow with pee.
2: Males cannot give birth to a child.
