bluefox3681: Joe Scarborough made an interesting point the other day. He mentioned to Mika that she is in much better shape then him. However, in a firefight, he would be able to carry her around in need be. However, even though she was in better physical shape, there is no way that she could carry Joe out of dangers, since he weighed so much more than her.
angry_scientist: This is my weapon, this is my _____?
pute kisses like a man: indarwinsshadow: women i know who run triathlons told me that the just pee themselves. it's not worth the trouble/time to stop, plus they're so hydrated, that it's going to happen.i thought, gross... but, whatever, i guess people in sports (and i assume, war) don't really care about being all that clean.
Brick-House: Technically, I don't think she's outside but that's just semantics. Now because some Mod might get all pissy and ban me, I am reluctantly going to say NSFW
Gelatinous: Thank god they don't poop.
pute kisses like a man: jehovahs witness protection: As long as women have to be held to the same standards as men, it shouldn't matter. Only one in 500 will be up to par though.what exactly are these standards that are so tough?
AirForceVet: MBooda: /back to the shadows again//where an indian's always your friend///where the vegetables are green////and...Am I the only one to recognize this quote from Firesign Theater's We're All Bozos On This Bus?
dugitman: Actually I'm just wondering where the hell you work.

namegoeshere: How are women able to be firefighters, and carry men out of fires while wearing over 70 pounds of equipment, if they can't carry injured men out of a combat situation?
FloydA: Bathia_Mapes: *facepalm*Women can't pee outdoors? Really? You really believe that, Family Research Council?To a certain, rather substantial proportion of the "Christian" "conservative" community, female anatomy is mysterious and scary.
Psycoholic_Slag: jehovahs witness protection: As long as women have to be held to the same standards as men, it shouldn't matter. Only one in 500 will be up to par though.They will never get past the "kill the spider in the bathtub" phase of the testing.
Magorn: jehovahs witness protection: As long as women have to be held to the same standards as men, it shouldn't matter. Only one in 500 will be up to par though.I hear a lot of guys say that, but I wonder how many of them have something even approaching a realistic idea of A) what kind of shape you have to be in for combat and b) how womefully short they themselves personally fall short of that standard despite having a Y chromosome. Yet strangely history proves that on several occasions in our history we've been able to turn hundreds of thousands of desk workers and clerks and factory workers into the most feared combat force on the planet. However did we do that I wonder?Did we simply go through the population hand-selecting all the hidden Adonai among us and giving them guns, or, as crazy as it sounds, does the human body possess some heretofore unguessed ability to grow stronger and gain more endurance through repetitive physical activity? And is it maybe just possible that we could somehow TRAIN this strange human super-power through a specifically designed series of physical exercises? Sorry, I know that's crazy-talk, I just got carried away

What's the next phase, "not jumping onto furniture when seeing a mouse"? Or some other cliché from an early 1960s sitcom? Is Vitameatavegamin tolerance tested?
jehovahs witness protection: Oh, and if you get captured...YOU GONNA GET RAPED.
thurstonxhowell: One problem I see with making women sign up for the draft: Wouldn't that provide a perverse incentive to create otherwise unwanted children?I'm a woman. There's a war. I don't want to go there. Hmm, what do?As a guy, I'd knock up my GF if I thought it was necessary to keep her out of a warzone. I bet others would do the same.
kindms: Do women realize that if guys could basically give it all up, let them take care of making the money and stay home, most would do it in a heartbeat ?
larrylboberry: When are they going to stop segregate genders in the Olympics?!If women are equal they won't mind competing fairly!
eraser8: I'll just leave this here: GoGirlSoooooo, it's a hollowed out strap-on?
Aigoo: Dear FRC, I peed outdoors for seven years. I also dug foxholes, shared tents with men and women (and even, occasionally, officers), got shot at, sweated and shed blood, marched countless miles with about half of my body weight on my back, gave up holidays, missed important events in loved ones' lives such as my father's 50th birthday party and funerals of several relatives, and only narrowly made it to the funeral of the grandfather with whom I lived and who raised me for several years, and due to the nature of my job, once saved an entire farking battalion because I was the only one who happened to notice the precarious situation they were about to find themselves in and quickly recommended to the COL that he consider giving orders to remove them from that situation while there was still time, before they were all slaughtered.When you, FRC, do that as a "non-combat soldier," then you can tell me whether or not I should be serving my country in an official combat role--because news flash: we've been serving in combat for years, whether you decide to acknowledge it or not. But until you do even a fraction of what we women have done for our country in a "non-combat" role, FRC, shut the fark up you sniveling douchetards.
MattyBlast: Obviously they don't know squat about women.
hutchkc: kindms: Do women realize that if guys could basically give it all up, let them take care of making the money and stay home, most would do it in a heartbeat ?I friggin would. Here it's all yours, have fun.
mark12A: I love how this is constantly trotted out to justify gays in the military. IT IS NON-GERMANE. What happened in the distant past with a society that ultimately collapsed DOES NOT apply to our current situation.However, MY present day experience with what I've encountered on Navy ships does apply. The heterosexual horse trading that goes on, the destruction of promising military careers caused by "Zipper Failure" is rampant and ignored by the MSM because it doesn't fit their PC narrative of a smoothly operating, culturally diverse and wonderfully perfect "Modern" military.Adding gays into the mix will make it even worse. When they were not allowed, they kept their behaviour to themselves. With them in the open, they will be pair bonding and that's when all the conflict, favoritism, jealousy all comes pouring out and crapping up the workplace. Happens with male/female heteros onboard, WILL happen with gays.Adding sex into modern, technological combat environments is a distraction that will cost lives, and ultimately battles. This pathetic belief that "training" will prevent misbehaviour is every bit as misguided as the Soviets were when they thought lifelong indoctrination/education would produce the "New Soviet Man" who would work selflessly for the greater glory of the Motherland.Didn't work. You can't change human nature.Like I said, this gays/women in combat crap will be blow away as soon as we get into a real shooting war.
Artisan Sandwich: Yeah, let's exclude potentially excellent soldiers for a stupid, made up reason that EVERYONE knows is stupid. Standardized PT tests for each role, open to one and all.
fredklein: Um, Family Research Council? TheOne solution is right here:[us-f2-edit.store.yahoo.com image 216x149]
udhq: You liberals need to realize that sexuality is a part of human nature, and is ALWAYS going to be present when men and women share the same space unless they are teenagers who have signed and abstinence pledge.
