"I say let them fight but they have to be as physically fit as their male counterparts. I know in many fields (I am unsure of american military standards) such as the Canadian Forces the requirements for females are far less then a male.…"

"Ohh, if I wasn't clear: the losing of the cycle might indeed be a good thing, definitely not bad! Saves those tampons for survival purposes right?"

"As Shane pointed out, you have the shooters (infantry) and everyone else is there to ensure that the shooters have what they need to do their job effectively. Sometimes that means going out with them, sometimes it doesn't. With that said, just…"

"Its also a 6 month cycle for the army (not that it changes anything, just wanted to clear that up)."

"This is a common argument for same sex education. My recollection, however, is that the data (by and large) doesn't bear this out. "

"And if you reject experimentation, and reject data from existing American co-ed units, and reject data from other cultures, you're locked into the status quo perpetually. You can never test a policy change completely before implementation,…"

"Drastically different cultures, maybe. But those are few and far between these days. "

Rick Shelton replied to Julian Ross's discussion Women in Combat?
"Liam: Different cultures may get different results. Shane: Not sure if that would be a good test case either as most non-Combat Arms units don't train for combat as their primary operation.  It is closer, however and may provide some…"

"Unfortunately body-weight standards don't equal getting to the fight with all your gear.  Combat units that I've been in required unit members to carry everything they'd need for the mission.  That means that the guy…"

Rick Shelton replied to Julian Ross's discussion Women in Combat?
"Mike, No women and men aren't the same, but the requirements of combat for both are the same.  Everybody will have to hump their 135lb ruck into the bush for extended marches, each will have to carry their own weapon, ammo, water, rations,…"

Mike M. replied to Julian Ross's discussion Women in Combat?
"No.  I'm sure there are plenty of women who can do 40 pushups.  I'm saying it's not an apples to apples comparison.  A woman who can do 40 pushups is probably stronger and more athletic than a man who can do the same."

Penelope replied to Julian Ross's discussion Women in Combat?
"And maybe they wouldn't have to make men take those assignments if they let women. This is the flip side to what I write above about why someone would want those assignments."
