    In 2005 I think it's just stupid to think that women can't be soldiers. Many women have proven themselves time and time again in the military either on the frontlines or in the departement of intelligence. Women are just as capable as men are. Granted, we may not be as physicaly strong as our male counterparts, but we can best them in other departements like intelligence. And I think that if proper trained, a woman can fair better under stress that a man can I mean, just look at some mothers, they could very well be a commander in an army.

    Sexism is stupid and I really dislike people who think like that.

    I don't think it matters, cuz really only the individual person male or female can choose whether they are one of the best damn soldiers ever, or just another wimpy # in the enlistments. I think it doesn't matter which group is supposibly more mentally able or more physically able, cuz there's always exceptions. And besides, if we're being bombed by enemies and are in a great deal of trouble, I don't give a shit if a 10yo is helping defend, just friggin HAVE someone there! The more the merrier right?

Men and women who haven't been with a member of the opposite sex (or same sex, as the case may be) for some time, and being in a very stressful situations...well, lets just say the accusations, if not the actual cases, of sexual harrassment would skyrocket. And even if the situations were consentual, it could lead to serious problems. soldiers are only human, so their desires could get in the way of their duties. Both for men and women. Of course, this could be solved by simply having male only and female only combat teams, but when you're in boot camp, you train co-ed, so that would defeat the purpose of the whole teamwork thing. I think taht, despite the best intentions of the young women who would gladly die for their country in combat, it just won't happen. Too much tradition, waaay too much politics, and the overall idea that we don't need female soldiers when there are plenty of men already in the service (and I don't mean that in a bad way).
    That is the main reason women still aren't in 'combat'. They tried integrating women on navel ships on long hauls and had to send three women back who became expectant mothers (and not from spouses). I believe women used to train seperatly in boot camp but the same people who are trying to push the lowered standards and women in combat also pushed for them to train co-ed. These same people are pushing for them to become completely co-ed. Same quarters and showers etc. Just what do they think will happen then?

    Historically in cultures where women served in the military as a matter of course they did so in their own units with female commanders etc. Think they knew something we don't?

    As for Joan of Arc, she was quite a woman. A person like that only comes along once in a lifetime.

    The sexual barrier is indeed hard to get past. Quite frustrating it is too!

    With the last generation of manned combat aircraft already in production. The role of the combat pilot will not be going to either a man or woman.....but an autonomous computer in a UCAV.

    Females have as much rights to fight for what they believe in and for fighting for something they feel strong about. So Ladies are able to fight side by side with the guy's.
    We may seem fradigile (sorry 4 spelling) but we are strong and can be really competitive!!!

    I don't anyone doubted that, but there's complications, like being in same boot camps and such things...
