We've already seen captured and dead women in combat, haven't we?
Gender doesn't make it any more or any less terrible.
The only difference is the title they held, not the danger they were in.
And again, many women would not qualify under today's standards, and most folks DON'T want them lowered. I doubt there will be many female Navy Seals, for instance. But, for those women out there with the physical mental and emotional to that job - or ANY job - should have the same chance as the men, should they wish to apply.
Part of the reason this is opening up is the requirements are changing now, reguardless of women.

equipment is becomming more technological, lighter, and more complex. Drones are replacing jobs only pilots could do in the past, they are close to self driving viecheles and that will quickly relate to tanks, soon there will be no tank crews on the battlefield.

War is changing fast.

I agree that a seal team for example should have the same standard reguardless of sex. And trust me there are women that can and will handle that.

However the standards for much of the military is changing fast, and it isnt because of women, but because of technology

You trolls flood the forum with posts about polygamy because you don't have an argument against gay marriage. Why not start a forum about polygamy? Oh, yeah, you don't give a damn about polygamy, that's why.

Quite a few women took up arms in our revolution and our civil war. They fought brilliantly. Let us not forget Joan of Arc either.
True. The French resistance during WWII had female members, Russians employed female fighter pilots, Russian female partisans, etc.

Buyers paid all cash for 34.9 percent of the Southern California homes sold January 2013.

Industry observers noted also that the current hot market could cool if the number of homes for sale rises.

I think it is long past time we break down that barrier

We have women on ships now, on subs, we have women pilots, we have had women on assignments on the front lines, some 139 have died in Iraq and Afghanistan, many with weapons in their hands manning posts. They have been on teams doing door to door searches manning towers with rifles etc etc etc

We are already doing it, it is just that a lot of people donít recognize it yet.

Because this is a perfectly good marriage equality thread, thank you.
Why don't you start a thread on red herrings? Over in the fish threads. Or maybe a straw man thread.
Rosie forgets the key word here is "MARRIAGE", as in same sex marriage, conjugal marriage, and yes the one she loves to deny, plural marriage. In her "marriage equality" world, Kody and his ladies are a bunch of Mormon fundies, Red necks, in breeders, and all sorts of trollette undesirables. They're not worthy of being allowed in the club house. It must make her cringe every time the Browns appear on national TV supporting gay marriage. "Wahhhhhh.....why can't those people leave us alone". Remember, Rosie, your cause is their cause, and their cause is your cause.

Did anyone from the pro gay marriage crowd honestly think this wouldn't happen? That plural marriage practitioners wouldn't jump on the band wagon?

Anyone willing to offer an honest answer?

They can try to jump on the bandwagon ( chuckle )

It wonít help

Until more responsible and civilized advocates of it come forward, it just isnít going anywhere.

It is just talk

It's all marriage equality. Except for the goats, that's PETA.
P.S. Learn the subject you are debating, goats cannot enter into contracts. Neither can little girls. So your bigotry and ignorance regarding poly marriage is unfounded. It's just ignorance. And bigotry. And hypocrisy.
P.S. What happened to your dopey plan to tell all married gay couples that they are no longer married?
What a dope!
again you will need someone more civilized and human to make the case, because that is not what the general public is seeing and has seen.

I am not talking about me you idiot, I am talking about general support which you wont get as long as all they see so far on the subject has been pretty darn negative.

I think gays should be allowed to marry. If I have to put up with a mother-in-law, they should too.
