why women should be allowed in combat

No, men can do it better. No, women should not be allowed to fight in combat, because there is no reason to think that women can do the job better. It is a fact that men are stronger than women. There is no need to tolerate higher casualties in war just so that we can say that women have had the same chance as men. Women can serve their country in other ways. The bible says no. There is many verses in the holy bible that specifically say that women should not fight in wars. Such as Deuteronomy 22:5 which basically says that men should not wear women clothing and women should not wear the gear of a warrior. Therefore that would mean that women should not fight in the military. The military cannot, and never will be, comparable to modern society. In the civilian life, failing to do your job doesn't result in the death of one or more fellow team members. In the military it does. IN the military more people than one are depending on you. The military hates one thing in combat scenarios. Variables. Women, unfortunately, introduce variables. The are different than men, both physically and physically. Variables mean somebody might not come home from a fight. So no, women should not be allowed to be in combat, not because I'm sexist, but because their choice involves lives and introduces variables, which is the reason they do NOT have that choice. Not a single country or society can 'eliminate' gender in physical sports. What makes one think it can be done in combat? I'm an ex: Infantry, Airborne, Ranger, Special Forces, MFF, Cbt Dvr, Jump Master (Ranger and Cbt Dvr schooled, not assigned to units). Yes, women can engage in combat, but history shows that only the PHYSICALLY strong consistently engage successfully. IT IS PHYSICAL!!!! If women in combat had been a good idea we would have been doing it for the last 5000+ years. We have not, and for very good reason. War is brutal and it comes down to simply brute strength a lot of times. After many days of fighting, sometimes it is not a matter of patriotism, courage, heart, desire, or any thing but brute strength just to survive and function.


It is only the physical requirements that make men more suited to engage enemies in what is, with no reservations, a dirty, hard, and brutal endeavor. The reality is that combat is not a 'standard' it is a cold hard set of facts. If one actually researches history (and not watch "GI Jane" or other movies and video games based on pure fantasy), one will find that women in combat has never been practiced except as a last defensive effort for survival. If one researches (studies have been done) how many females in the military want to be in combat positions you will find that, with the exception of pilots, only a very small percentage want the БopportunityБ to engage in direct combat. Females that have seen even a small part of what combat entails will gladly let the БbrutesБ do it. However, you will find no shortage of womenБs groups that have no idea of the physical demands of combat eagerly volunteer OTHER women for the opportunity to step forward. Think about this. Why are sports gender divided? If the Olympics/Professional/College/High School Sports were not gender divided ALL sports (physical ones at least) would be TOTALLY
dominated by men. ***** There is not a single society that can successfully eliminate gender in sports but we want to do it in combat. ***** COMBAT! Where people die for lots of reasons, one of them being not physically able to compete against the enemy. So, perhaps if we could 'fix' the sport gender problem, then we could 'fix' the combat 'problem'. Perhaps we could require the Olympics/Professional/College/High School Sports to play a few teams of 30% women and see how they stack up against all male teams. And remember in sports there are rules to protect players. In combat there are no such rules!!! As I see it, we can either make men more physically like women. Or make women more physically like men. Not a particular good choice for either. The nation that requires itБs women to engage the enemyБs men in combat is a sorry excuse of a nation and will not long be a nation.


No, not until we can make it equal No one can say that women have not earned the right to serve in the military throughout our history. I believe that they have every right, however, that does not make them qualified to be combatant soldiers. While some women are the exception, it is not right to allow all of them in just yet. The fact is that there are physical and sociological differences that will cause battle units to be less effective. It is more important for our military to perform as well as it possibly can than it is to make sure everyone "feels welcome". I know it is important to have equal opportunity, but not until we can guarantee equal performance as well. Brothers-in-arms. The phrase is deep in meaning. ItБs drenched in history and carries years upon years of young men going to fight and die for their country in places they may not have even heard of before they boarded the plane. Soldiers are among the bravest and most admirable people imaginable, and no amount of double talking or quantification can negate that. But why brothers in arms alone? What about the women? and Capt. Kristen Griest became the first women to graduate the elusive Ranger School in August 2015. While they completed the necessary requirements and completed the school, neither Haver nor Griest are able to join the Ranger Regiment. They trained as hard as their male counterparts and worked as diligently, but they were barred from doing the same work based solely on the fact that they are women. б While women have made great strides in the military and occupy variousб indispensableб positions, they are still considered less competent for some jobs because of the supposition that they are either not up to the physical demands of the job or are simply too fragile mentally to comprehend and deal with the horrors of what they would be asked to do. б I have heard time and time again that women should not be on the front lines in combat because, "What will happen if they're captured? What horrors will they be subjected to? "б This only questions whether women would be able to withstand the possibility of torture or rape.


Men, too, can be both tortured and raped, and nobody has ever questioned whether they can serve on the front lines. б Aб was passed in September that stated that all combat positions need to be open to women. This was a landmark decision that demonstrated, as backwards and archaic as the world can seem sometimes, opinions are changing and old stereotypes are being challenged. б However, several branches of the military have asked to be exempt from the mandate on the basis that women will not be able to achieve in their branch. б Why don't we let them try and put in the same effort as the men and see if they can pass? If they fail, so be it. But what if they succeed? Even better and monumental changes would be made. But don't bar an entire gender from trying simply because it seems women can't. If the standards for excellence are the same between men and women, and both pass, why can't they both be allowed to perform? said that,". We're on a track to say, 'Hey look, anybody who can meet the gender non-specific standards, then you can become a SEAL. '" This perfectly encapsulates the need for non-biased standards that must be achieved by the people who are hoping to gain a position and the need to honor that achievement. б Another argument is that women will disrupt the brotherhood and camaraderie among soldiers, perhaps insisting that all women cause drama or that there cannot be any male-female relationships without the inclusion of sexuality. This paints a simplistic view of the friendships that can grow between men and women. This is also insulting to men because it assumes they are guided only by their sexuality and cannot see a women as an equal, which is certainly untrue of most men. I'm not sure if there is a more outdated idea. б The military should be like occupation Б open to both women and men. Women can be brave, strong and defend their country. Selflessness and strength are gender-neutral traits, and if women can do it, then let them. б б
