Its true, they want equal rights then they should have to fight, however, i wouldn't want females who were unable to carry me to saftey if i were injured in battle around me if my life depended on it, if i were in battle.

At the end of the day the'/re not physically equal to men. And they could cause distraction to male soldiers also, etc.

It's dangerous grounds really.


If a man places tits before his life...............

Yeah, definitely the woman that caused that mental fuckup.

Let me see if I have this straight:

"Has equality gone too far?"
"No."
"<makes up bullshit scenario about it going too far>"

The US is late to the party on the whole women in combat roles thing and no country with women in front line roles lowered the requirements just for the sake of "balance".

Oh, well, since you read it in a book written by a sexist xenophobic lunatic it must pan out to reality. -.-

boys will be boys lol
EDIT: not saying the women would cause it intentionally or at their own fault, but just them being there (if they're hot) it's only human nature. Not only for men to be attracted, but also to compete and try to impress and also to want to try to protect.

But as i said, women could not carry a wounded man to saftey.

Plus they cant drive. lol jk

Go read about it yourself

Women in the Israel Defense Forces
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women_in_the_Israel_Defense_Forces
Women in the Israeli Defense Forces are female soldiers who serve in the Israel Defense Forces. Israel is the one of only a few countries in the world with a mandatory military service requirement for women.[1][2][3]

According to the IDF, 535 female Israeli soldiers had been killed in combat operations between the period 1962-2016 (this figure does not include the dozens of female soldiers killed in Israeli service prior to 1962).[4] Women have taken part in Israel’s military before and since the founding of the state in 1948,[5][6] with women comprising over 20% of Israeli forces in 1948, and 33% of all IDF soldiers and 51% of its officers, in 2011,[7] fulfilling various roles within the Ground, Navy and Air Forces. The 2000 Equality amendment to the Military Service law states that "The right of women to serve in any role in the IDF is equal to the right of men."[3] As of now, 88% to 92%[8] of all roles in the IDF are open to female candidates, while women can be found in 69% of all positions.[1]

You've clearly never seen the hoops leadership in the CAF is jumping through to encourage women to join in the last ten years or so if you believe Canada isn't lowering the requirements across the board. And frankly most of the women that do join the CAF don't do so as combat personal. And honestly I am not entirely comfortable with this Human Rights commission basically ordering leadership to allow more women into the forces.

If they don't meet the already lowered requirements should the CAF be forced to allow them in anyway to maintain some illusion of gender equality? Personally I don't think so , you can't hack it go home. And that is regardless of what is between your legs. I really could care less if such a opinion is seen as sexist. I am under no obligation to accept this watering down of the quality of Canada's Armed Forces simply to appease all the feminists out there.

Do you have any actual evidence to back this up or is this your usual ranting? The last I saw anything about changing the standards it was because we were getting too damn fat and even then they were accused of making it harder in order to cut women and older men.

Obvious not and no one is saying they should. You're doing the same strawman BS as the op.
