    99.9.% of the Women I know will tell you to bugger off Lerxst. There's no "wondering" about that fact Lex.

    Take care.
    Who the heck are you to speak for 99.9% of women? Did you take a personal poll of all the women in this country? This is just your opinion paraded as facts. I'm a woman and I would consider being in hand to hand combat with a man. Some men are such whimps I'm sure I would have no problem.

    How dare you speak for women. Any man pretending to speak for women can only be considered a arrogant chauvinist know it all. I feel sorry for any women in your life when you feel free to speak for them and others.

    Pay attention Smartaleck...I said, 99.9.% of the Women I know would tell Lerxst to bugger off, in being placed in Hand to Hand Combat with Men.

    My husband trains in martial arts and he does spar with both women and men.
    I mean... they all wear protective gear, but he has hit women, and they've hit him.
    And they've injured him occasionally, by accident, despite the protective gear, and I suspect he's hurt them occasionally too.

    Your husband beats women up.

    Not sure what's worse, getting kicked squarely in the unprotected groin, or getting pressure cuts from getting kicked squarely in the protective cup. The first certainly stops hurting sooner.

    I am sure there are some ugly men in special forces too.

    Being ugly as hell could be a benefit serving in special forces. Why do you think they call them 'special'.

    Are they all supposed to look like Demi Moore or Private Benjamin?
    Well, your a women and you don't even know how to quote right. Imagine someone like yourself on the battlefield. We are all screwed! I don't think a women should serve in the military, unless she has plans on being the whore on the base, should we say?
    Women have no place on the battlefield, they would get all the men killed. And on top of that, they wouldn't be able to take the constant bullying, women don't like being bullied, they like being the bullies. Its why they are on the front desks. So they can bully new recruits.

    If,,,and I repeat if, I were to be placed in the situation of hand to hand combat with a Woman, I wouldn't like it. It goes against my grain. It goes against my upbringing. I've always detested, and loathed a "man" that raised his hand in anger to a Woman or Child.

    I'm NOT implying your Husband is wrong in training with Women though...That's a Choice both of them made.

    Take care.
