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
You are allowing your chauvinistic mindset to dictate your words. Serving in an infantry unit is not primarily about physical strength. There is no need for super men. I served in an infantry unit and I was not overly muscular. Some men can carry more than others. Some women can carry more than some men.
Sex is irrelevant. Capability is what is important.
You would do well to refrain from such ignorant commentary.
You ever fought a female who was thoroughly trained in kick boxing and BJJ? And what part of the female anatomy is it that makes them poor shots?
You need to do some introspection.
Anyway, there is really very little from the infantry MOS that translates into the civilian world. When I went to MP school it was a little better.
Many women serve as combat pilots etc. on the front lines, and they are good at it. No physical weakness and damn certain no mental weakness.
Just because they have strength in different area's it does not make them weak in combat.
I do not think a female should be in combat arms as in infantry, artillery or armor, but it is because they have a different skill set, not a weakness.
No Lives Matter
Punctuality, discipline, good under stress, quick thinking...those aren't actual skills that will land you a career. They will make you better at whatever you choose to do but you can't market that stuff.

Really sometimes I wonder if some people here even have mothers, daughters, wives and girlfriends in their lives because they haven't a clue about where women are coming from.
