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.
mark12A: One time I was bicycling home from work, under I-95, through the Philly sports complex. I saw one women, behind one of the I-95 support coluums, pants down, butt hanging out, squatting and peeing like a horse there on the tarmac.Sorry Farkies, but women trying to pee in combat surroundings is a hell of a lot more complicated than guys whipping it out and squirting.
jehovahs witness protection: Oh, and if you get captured...YOU GONNA GET RAPED.
Bashar and Asma's Infinite Playlist: On the third hand (this metaphor has a genetic mutation) their menstruation will attract bears, killing the women outright, and this problem rights itself.
Jument: Gelatinous: Thank god they don't poop.LOL
namegoeshere: Of course they can! Just start making these in camo.
Bucky Katt: The Family Research Council: are they stupid because they're rightwingers or are they rightwingers because they're stupid?
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.
namegoeshere: jaybeezey: That's ludacrisp! The real women that women can't be in combat is that there might spiders in those fox holes...and women do not deal well with spiders.Yes. Men react much better to spiders. (nsfw language)
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.
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.
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.
angry_scientist: This is my weapon, this is my _____?

larrylboberry: When are they going to stop segregate genders in the Olympics?!If women are equal they won't mind competing fairly!
Cythraul: There's Always A Bloody Ghost: I'm Canadian, so I'm getting a kick out of this.Canada has allowed women to fill combat roles for 20 years. http://news.nationalpost.com/2011/10/25/women-filled-8-3-of-canadas-co mbat-positions-in-afghanistan-study/Yes, yes. You Canadians are always so more civilized than we lowly United Statesians.
Lenny and Carl: Just what do you Christian fundamentalists think Jewish women did during the 40 years they supposedly wandered in the desert? You know, like in that story? It's near the beginning of that book you guys like to hold while you yell at gay people heading to a club or women going to the ob-gyn.

HotIgneous Intruder: One word: PREGNANT.That is all. Carry on.
Uranus Is Huge!: The author sounds unfamiliar with female genitalia. I'd love to here hear his thoughts on regulating female reproductive health.
treesloth: vernonFL: Wait until the Family Research council funds out that we're letting Negroes into integrated units!Also did they hear that homosexuals can serve openly?Indeed, even Negresses!
God Is My Co-Pirate: Have these people never been to a festival?Wait, of course they haven't.
JohnAnnArbor: I once saw a product that was a little disposable paper triangle/cone that was intended to allow ladies to use urinals.
trotsky: /Who needs health class in the age of the internet?
Bathia_Mapes: *facepalm*Women can't pee outdoors? Really? You really believe that, Family Research Council?
