Hell Hath No Fury: Female Soldiers in Combat Units

Get Over It! We Are Not All Created Equal | Marine Corps Gazette.

… As a combat-experienced Marine officer, and a female, I am here to tell you that we are not all created equal, and attempting to place females in the infantry will not improve the Marine Corps as the Nation’s force-in-readiness or improve our national security.

Extremely well written, succinct, and thoughtful. I almost completely agree with her, except for the part where I don’t. This calls for a considered response, not midnight stream-of-conscious meandering, so it’ll have to wait until I am in a more appropriate venue and mentality.

Read the whole damn thing, because it NEEDS to be addressed by people who understand the ramifications, and not just the tools with Ph.d’s and soft pink office feet.

    I’d say the most important requirement for women in combat units is that they pass the same, exact physical requirements as the men.
    Unless you make all women units, then they can have their own I guess.

This is for posterity, so please be specific.
