Again, I agree, mostly. But look at that wife of the guy that shot up San Bernadino. Calmly dropped her 6-month-old off in the morning, and then went out to shoot and kill dozens of people - probably knowing she'd not return alive.
There are some women that DO have that 'intestinal fortitude'. If those women want to become soldiers in any given role, and can hack it, then let 'em.
A - Perhaps so, but that cowardly biacth knew she was going against unarmed civilians, not fully trained combat infantry solders or marines..
B - Agreed on the second point, BUT:
Let copy and paste from the solsticeforum..
Well that was not the case during WWII my friend. The Japanese used "sex slaves" from women that they captured (mainly Korean and Chinese) and kept them prisoners for "pillowing" purposes.. They called them "Comfort Women"..
We shall see how people will feel when the "Selective Service" now could change and we'll have dainty women, like your mother, your sister, your wife, your girlfriend, hell they might make grandma register... Registering is one thing, what are you going to do if your daughter gets drafted? I don't want my young daughter to be drafted, IF she, or they want to join is one thing, mandatory registering for women 18 YO is out of the question...
Here's the current law, to wit;
Under current law, all male U.S. citizens are required to register with Selective Service within 30 days of their 18th birthday. In addition, non-U.S.-citizen males between the ages of 18 and 25 (inclusive) living in the United States must register.
Finally all I'll say is look what would happen to our female captures IF IS gets a hold of them, Sorta of the same scenario the Korean and Chinese women experienced during the war.. I for one do not want to piut our combatants in a position of losing their life in order to protect a female, that was never qualified and should have never there to begin with..
