I know it sounds sexist, I really dont mean it like that, but if in that situation id rather it a male. Like I said though, I see it from their side. They want the right to fight next to males. Im just a little torn on it is all.
    Would you rather die or have a woman pull you out?

    this is something that doesnt get talked about.there hasnt been a "front line" since korea. guerrilla fighters/insurgents dont fight in an old ww1/ww2 style way. so many women have found themselves in combat already, even if there was no formal designation of it, as everywhere is a combat zone.

    Yes I did and she wasn't manly at all. Most of them are pretty ugly or they're a lesbian but we had these 2 girls that were smoking hot in our unit. If they were the face of NATO there would be no more war.

    I'm sure you've done plenty of research on the topic

    As long as the PT standards are the same as men then i wouldnt mind, not too mention that would greatly narrow the pool of qualified women. If a 24 yr old female can do 60 sit-ups, 40 pushups, and run a 15 minute 2 mile then i wouldnt mind ( and i never met a female in the service that could). Shouldnt change the standard just to appease the a-holes making the laws or whoever it is crying that it isnt fair that women can't serve in combat situations. War isnt a game.

    1) How does compromising the physical fitness of the Corps increase the chance of a devil dog going KIA? Common sense. What does "thirstiness" have to do with combat? Someone hasn't a clue do they? How about women, who are less physically capable, being winded faster, needing more water. It's a compromise to the squad. You wouldn't know though because something tells me you've never been on a patrol in the likes of Afghanistan.

    2) Woman don't have the same standards and never will. Pushups? ********. How about a max of 20 pullups, 100 crunches, and 18 minute 3 mile. That's a perfect PFT in the Corps. I'll laugh the day they make that the perfect score for females because none of them will get it.

    This is a joke, the Corps is already cutting back and now females will take spots of men most likely because of some ******** quota they probably have to meet. It's ****ing war. You want the devil dog who eats, sleeps, and hangs with you as your a-gunner, your brother.

    Son of a *****. ****ing bull ****.
    I never thought about a quota. I know a firefighter who told me he would watch women fail the fitness test, but they would hire them anyway because they legally have to have so many females per males.

    every guy I know who saw combat has some sort of problems today. I know one guy who just has nightmares about it all the time, and one of my good buddy's just got done with his alcoholism and PTSD treatment. and like I've said I've asked them about women in combat and they all say no.

    my friend told me he saw 2 girls ever fight front line, and he said they were both built like football players and were really ugly.

    Don't the Russians have a large amount of females in combat roles?

    I always wonder how people can be so negative on women serving in a combat role when I watch old documentaries on the Vietnam war and those little Asians giving us a terrible time in combat.

    Physical standards should be the same and if that weeds out 95% then so be it. Either that or we can do a test study and have a unit made up of all women and see how they do in combat.

    You know this is usually a punch line, but the economy and strength of families were way better off when women stayed home. The house wife is slowly becoming a thing of the past even though families functioned better that way. It has nothing to do with women being incapable, it just worked better.

    Now you have the dykes of the world wanting to fight wars and even though they actually are less capable, they'll probably win and compromise the strength of are marine infantry units. It's sad to see politicians try to make some sort of equality point by pulling this bull ****.
