Hell no. Women are not built the same way as men, physically and mentally. They will be captured and raped then killed and when plenty more women causalities start showing up, everyone's going to shout to re-ban women on the front lines.
Bottom line, you can't send a woman to finish a man's work unless you want to fail.
I made this "be careful what you ask for" point on another forum to those fanatic feminists who are demanding equal rights. With equality comes side effects that most women are not prepared to deal with. No one wants their daughters being compulsorily drafted in time of war, and if men and women are equal, it will not be fair for only men to be on the front line. They're asking for it, they are getting it.

With all due respect, women shouldn't fight in wars. Example: I'm laying on the ground with one leg blown off. I would hate to have to count on anyone with less strength than needed to pull me to safety no matter whether they're male or female. We all know that pound for pound, genetically speaking, men are much stronger than women.

I'm just an old head with old school beliefs and thought I do believe that the future belongs to you young heads to do with it what you will, however, from where I stand, Women unequivocally should not be fighting in combat!

I understand all of the "anything men do, we can do better" nonsense slogans spouted by feminist and unrealistic egalitarians, but just because they demand "absolute egalitarian" with no regard for it's impact on societ, does not mean MEN have to acquiesce to their wishes.

Men are obligated to act in the best interest of, for the greater good of society and having women heads blown off in battle or gang raped by the enemy after being captured does not serve THE GREATER GOOD OF ANY SOCIETY. Women in my opinion, have a greater utility and purpose in society than to die in combat.

Civilized society is about more than an efficent distribution of resources; it's about the division of labor and responsibility as well. The unspoken quid pro quo in our society has always been women sacrificing on the home front from birthing and raising the next generation to micromanaging our daily lives, and in turn, men provide a material and financial infrastructure, while offering the physical safety and security, which includes sacrificing our lives by fighting the wars.

Try as we may to reform biology, men are programmed to protect women and this impulse will not simply disappear simply because she is now a combat soldier with the responsibility to carry her own weight. This is proven in the Israelis army where women fight along side men in battle. There is a documented increase in male soldiers casulties from taking greater risk to save their female counterparts.

And we have not even mentioned the psychological carnage of women coming home after having seen acts of desensitizing inhumanity at the age 22 when she has only been out of her parents home for 4 years and expect her to psychologically readjust and raise normal healthy, productive children for the good of our society? Sorry...it's not a good Ideal from where I stand!

Next thing, It'll be the woman's job to go down stairs to check and see what that strange noise was while the men stays cowering upstairs dialing 911. You Young heads! lol!

Insecure women, not wanting to feel inferior to men, will always push for ways in which they can attempt (and fail) at being equal to a male. When put in the same situation, it's physically not possible. Females are not meant to be equal to males - duh! One is stronger, the other weaker... for a reason.
Females trying to perform the role of males is almost as much an abomination in human nature as homosexuality is. It's a dead-end. Humans are not meant to be homosexual - females are not meant to perform the roles MALES perform!
Know your role, insecure feminazis.
It's time all males grew their backbones and told them this. Sadly, there are many backboneless "males" out there that bend over for these feminazis and give them what they want. It's disgusting.
I understand the need for feminism and its ideology, b/c as men continue to abandoned women. Men oriented jobs pay more than women, while female oriented job pays substantially less. In our society,'women's work' is less valuable. Less value = less money. And still women will get paid less than men for the same work and the same job. I worked at a house ware show in Chicago, years ago. I thought more women would have position of power in that industry, b/c it mainly about housework, but no way,...men had all the top positions and money. This society completely screws women. They even have to pay more for health care for giving birth to us. So, I do understand why some women may feel competing with men on a physical level is the only way to get equal rights. Equal respect and equal money. As a society, we need to value women and give them the same earning power as men, for female oriented jobs.

My personal opinion? I think women should not fight in wars. Women are too important to our society. Everything we have, accomplished, are,..is because of a woman. Women are not physically strong as men,..and are too vulnerable in combat.

I agree. Men are programmed to protect women, and women are too vulnerable in combat,..now supporting roles, I agree with,..jobs in the arm forces to keep women safe.
Can u imagine? If women have to deal with the emotional and physical damage of war and have to come home to primarily raise children. Wow,...I think women should have support role in the arm forces,..fighting on the front line,..that's 'man's work'.

Indeed, it's not in womens nature and them being there will only cause problems.

Many are going to be raped; fact!

Also competition between men (what we do) to gain the women in the group will definitely effect the front line forces. Distractions.

This is why they did not put a woman in the ''MARS-500'' project which was ''a psychosocial isolation experiment conducted between 2007 and 2011 by Russia, the European Union and China, in preparation for a manned spaceflight to the planet Mars''. As they knew competition for the women would ensue.

No, silly feminazi; "everything we have, accomplished, are," is not because of a woman. Everything we have, accomplished and are today is because of males and females working together throughout our existence.

You see, this is what I'm talking about when concerning insecure feminazis. They're trying to actually take credit for what both have accomplished together throughout human history; only the role of females was simply different from the role of males; that's how we survived and thrived; feminazism is destroying that now. Not just concerning this "soldier fighting on the battlefield" subject, either.

Too bad the insecure feminazis cannot comprehend that; and if they can, they choose not to think of it and become willingly ignorant because they now want to dominate and "feel the power" above others <-- thus the feminazi (butch lesbian?) mindset.

It's one thing to be fair to someone based upon equal amount of time/skill worked but this feminazism has gone way beyond that. Sorry.

Without females remaining females, the children will not be raised correctly -> good bye civilized society.

One thing for sure, I know that this is the REAL BIGSMOKE with this detailed, salient response. Good point...We try in our efforts to engender equality by abandoning common sense and biology and it simply won't work. Whether it offends our modern sensibilities or not, we are configured distinctly, not just in the physical sense, but the emotional and psychological as well. I can't imagine the psychological impact on the male soldiers seeing images of women, who remind them of their mothers, sisters etc.. blown or shot to pieces on the battle field....devastating on their moral!

You don't have to say goodbye,..don't be afraid of a little debate,lol.
On many points, I disagree with u. Without women, the protection and caring from women when we are children,..without them our society would not exist. Bonding with women, being educated and nurtured by women have allowed our species and our society to advance. Women have educated us, feed us, confront us when we are sick, stood by us, never abandoning our society,....our mothers, aunts, sisters, wives, etc. Without failing. Yet, in our society, we devalue their roles,..our society should pay women as well as men for 'women oriented' jobs. Women should not have to do a 'man's job' to get respect, equality, or a good salary.

"Everything we have, accomplished, are",..is primarily based upon women. Period. Grow up. Our society is based upon her and her standards.

In our society, men have abandoned women,..they make less for the same jobs, they are not respected sexually, they have suffered abuse and domestic violence, they have to pay more for health care (while giving birth to us), and we constantly devalue their jobs. I worked for a house ware show, in Chicago, many years ago. I saw mops, cleaning products, house hold appliances and I thought women should be in charge of this market. Guess what? They were not. Why? Too much money in it. So, women were kept out of top positions. We continue to completely screw women in our society.

I agree with u on one point, that the feminist agenda should not focus on physical equality between men and women,..because it does not exist. Women have children,..and without them, we would not be here. And to hide behind a name like 'feminazi', is a grade school mentality. Name calling is a continued abandonment of American women. Why not deal with the real reasons. And discuss our society's marginalization of them.

Women thru out history have been abandoned. American white women esp...

had the best model for the family presented to them on a silver platter...

dad goes to work, mom stays home and raise the kids...

Of course it was far from perfect ...

But kids came home to mama and not latch key...

In my all black neighborhood, there was a sense of community, stability...

Kids came home to their bio mamas and their bio daddies went to work.

Step families were an oddity...

Mama kept the family together...

In this age of the "enlightened woman" gonna do my thing mama....

(and how ridiculous is that, I blinked and my kids are teens, kids grow up super fast)

Her family is in shambles, her kids are in juvenile detention ctrs....

places I never heard of when I was a kid...

because kids were getting their basic needs met by their stay at home moms.

As far as woman entrepreneurs, in this computer age mamas can run a business from home.

I'd love to see more stay at home mom entrepreneurs.

In regards to what you said it may just take post traumatic stress disorder to a next level!

But I believe the major problems will be competition amongst the males, sexual harassment to rape on the front lines. These are distractions from the mission. Unless of course they only allow really butch heavy set ugly females to be on the front line LOL!
