An elite crack Delta 6 seals squad, sent into the Colombian jungles to assassinate a drug lord.

Now when the perfect time comes to strike and breach the compounds door Mr blue stands across from Ms Pink. Ms Pinks jungle fatigues are ripped and her pert breasts are just staring in Mr blue's face the signal is given he trips up from the momentary distraction and the flash-bang hes clutching goes off in his hand the guards hear the commotion and the loud bang and open up with fully automatic precision fire. When the brass at the pentagon goes over the notes of the failed top secret op and realize its all because a nip slip they /facepalm.

Not to mention almost all males from an elite force such as delta 6 wouldn't even consider a female next to them on a serious combat mission. Id suggest sticking to being spy's and let the boy's play in the sand.

Do you seriously believe that the men of the United States Navy SEALS, one of if not THE most elite fighting unit in the world, is not focused enough on their top-priority missions to be able to operate in the vicinity of an attractive female? If U.S. intelligence needs an enemy taken down inside his compound, but that enemy has an attractive daughter who often hangs around the area where the mission will take place, do they just cancel the entire mission??

 

SEAL leader: "Sir, we are in position and ready for the operation to take out the evil dictator and save Western civilization. Waiting for your go-ahead, over."

Mission director: "Copy that, SEAL leader. Wait... what's this? Hold on, we've got an incoming report... confirmed! The enemy has an attractive daughter! Repeat, the enemy has an attractive daughter in Drop Zone Four, who may or may not be wearing a revealing shirt!"

SEAL leader: "May god help us..."

Mission director: "Abort the mission! Do you copy, SEAL leader?! Get your horny men out of there! ABORT!"

MISSION: FAILED
 


Unbelievable. I know the military has more than its fair share of horn-dogs in the sandbox, but this isn't "playing in the sand" we're talking about. Give the men some credit, for crying out loud.

Fine then let me reiterate If a female can pass the exact same selection process for seals then by all means go ahead. I'm sure some would.

Now good luck getting the rest of the career soldiers to appreciate your value.

Hyuck call me old fashioned..... Seems to me like many feminists are frequenting this topic, so why don't i just say it, have the world and everything in it : )

~edit~ My short story's a jokey joke btw

In your short story you mention the weakness of your male team members, not the female.
Don't you know its a weakness if a man cant function around a female?

If a seal team had to work with a female on their team, i know that they would have done so with 100% dedication and respect. That is why they are seals and your are not. Their adaptation skills are way better then you give them credit for. You are actually insulting the professionalism of the seal team by stating that females would be a failure to have on the team.

There has been some talk here in Australia recently about allowing women to apply for the Special Air Service Regiment, and whether a bill should be passed to allow them to.

My response, to my parents, with my dad being a Vietnam Vet, was hell, let em have a go. If they can be one of the ones that are part of the 6% pass rate, then go right ahead. Would be interesting to see a woman complete a 42 mile pack march in less than 18 hours, after 6 weeks of courses and no sleep.

Rip it up ladies!

In the 90s when i competed in the echo challenge events, Australia had some of the most dedicated females i have ever seen apart from the US. In the echo challenge event females also had to complete the 500km endurance race in 7 to 10 days like their male team mates.
We often had to walk in some of the crappiest terrain you can image without any rest for 20 to 30 hours.
The average time spent walking/running without rest in a echo challenge event is about 17 hours non stop.

Each team had to have at least 1 female.

Women should be in the SEALs and deployed when on their period, i bet they will be so mad and frustrated that they will complete a special operation in 10 minutes from the anger

I don't understand why this door is still closed. If a woman can pass the test. She should be allowed in. Period.

The speaker in the article states that they have to be very, very careful about implementing women into the special forces. What is it that you have to be so careful about?

Women may not have the arm strength of men, but they have the leg strength, generally have better aim and targeting skills, and pay more attention to detail and can read social cues. There are many benefts that can outway physical prowess in that setting.

Now I know that special ops is brutal. I know that the testing to be a Navy Seal is obscene. So if a woman wants to try out, and passes, I can't see a reason to not let her participate.

www.washingtonpost.com...



First of all , when that Navy Seal's butt buddy girlfriend gets a bullet in the neck and he is thinking this is bull# i hate you im going to go rambo on you. She just very well could have caused that mission to fail , or same in turn for the guy.

Secondly , men are more physically capable than women.

Thirdly , doesnt matter how smart you think you are , if you are an idiot male or female , you arent going to be a navy seal so that argument is out of the window and neutralized. Also , the argument Females are Smarter than men is actually invalid as the argument for 100 years have been that there is no intellect difference , however recently a study showed that a man's brain is actually 100 grams larger than a females brain. So if you want to be technical...we are smarter.

Fourthly , they have experimented with females in the special forces , and their bodies decayed rapidly physically.

The reason above is quiet due to the feminist movement and not to stir up their cries , as women tend to get rather annoying with the their equality rights , as it has turn from equality rights to MORE POWER. (Literally , its on the internet , but they dont announce it)

Im tired of this argument , USE THE BEST species for combat , MEN , physically. Makes since , i wouldnt throw a poodle against rotwaller (Doubt i spelled that right). Id throw a #in Bulldog ( UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS OORAH). Of course we could use the Poodle as cannon fodder...

If you do get it , i dont want here about rape. You get Raped , its your problem. Dont make our military look bad because WOmen are so hell bent to be on the front lines. Itll get people killed.

You got a man thinking he is facing his last few hours of life he could do some weird #.

we DO have more muscle strength than women everywhere on the body due to our MUSCLE MASS. We are simply bigger and faster than most women therefor more combat effective

I dont know where you got the Aim and Targeting skills either , because it is trained into you , you can be male or female the more you shoot the better you get. So this is false than any Gender rules this area.

Most of points are invalid. Men are superior in combat...its that simple.

PS: WE ARE TOLD TO KILL WOMEN FIRST IN ENEMY ENGAGEMENTS because the men try to help her , as it is natural for a man to protect a woman they know and trust (Any person for that matter , however , it is intensified for a woman) that means there is no exception to a enemy KILLING AMERICAN women FIRST in combat as we are told to do.

The more men that try and help you or her. The more we get to kill , and the more they get to kill.


(SO MANY TYPOS ..screw it , do your best , gl.)

I could say many thing and give many reasons, but for lack of time, I will just say....everything you say is nothing but mere fantasy. Women can't be seals because they are simply not good enough in every way. Leg strength...I have been to the gym 20 years and you couldn't be more wrong. Men consistently squat 500-800 lbs. Never seen a woman without steroids do more than 200lbs. Everything else...is nothing but a Demi Moore/Xena Princess Warrior illusion. This is cute though. Just because YOU say something doesn't make it a statistic. Men are weaker than men and slower and cannot shoot better nor drive better and their menstrual cycles would be a logistical and militaristic nightmare, not to mention, it would take only a trained dog to smell the woman during this cycle (or even off of it) and every sela team has a human GPS everywhere the seal team goes. The day they make women seals is the day I give up citizenship...because our country will then officially be a joke. I would then move to a country with a stronger military ....like CANADA...oh and women are NOT smarter than men...they only have heavy financial and group help funded by the government. Men do not. We do everything ourselves while women ahve to have all kinds of government funded organizations to help them out.Having the government to "hold your hand" while you do everything is not being smart. Women take everything from us all the time because of this assistance, but we get back up and keep hoofing it. Women can't do this because they have been too pampered by government assistance and then sit back and watch TV shows where women kick the crap out of men...all based on fantasy. believing that women are superior to men....is actually stupid. It's a stereotype that comes from vain women alone and any statistic saying otherwise was written by a female or a male who is equally as stupid. Your idea, although cute.......is based on fantasy and will mean the end of our country.

Same drills and tests that the men have to do.

No warping of the physical requirements and stamina required to do this, this isn't women's sports. That in mind, there is absolutely no legitimate reason for women not to be able to join the Navy. If men are allowed to carry a gun around and travel around the globe to shoot people for corporate interest and collect a paycheck, so should women.

Women are allowed to join the military and Navy in Canada.

Also, why don't you just live in Canada, anyways? Who needs a strong military force when A. Nobody hates you based on your nationality and B. You don't use 'troops' to trample over foreign countries to support corporate agendas....

Yes, but they are not special forces like seals. As I recall the Canadian military has been considered a joke for years. Your point? I was being sarcastic up there you know. Women are in the US military as well. They are not special forces as per the topic. Women apparently have a lack of focus too.

guess no one ever watched archer or freakin james bond!

why would we need women bulling their way through any secret op?

i'm no genius but don't ya think a great looking gal or undercover woman can be as valuable if not more than
seal team 6?

they already fly people in and out. i'm not sure but i bet they have a secret female squad somewhere, some why.


i'm not saying no, just saying why bother?

if we need one, sure, just like if we need a little person or an ethnic or geek.

u all think they are all about brut force, good! makes it easier.

All this crap you kids say about females, are exactly the same arguments i got when i told my friends that i was going to try out as a combat swimmer in 1991.

They told me that i wasn't this and i wasn't that, i had no chance in hell.

Even after i was half way through (after 10 weeks) they kept on talking like they knew what i was doing and going through.


In stead of talking about something you people have no knowledge about. Go and try it and get first hand experiance. Because its disturbing to read what you people think you know.

If a woman could past the test let her do it.. But the % of women who could even pass basic boot camp with Mens STANDARDS would be so low I doubt many women would make it. This is why standards are lowered.

I see alot of things in this thread that are both humorous, and rediculous. There are alot of very relevant posts from both sexes. Yet, there are alot of posts from the guys that are border line 1940's mentallity, and there are alot of posts from the women that are only displaying some of the weaknesses which the guys are pointing out. There are scientific studies to back both ends of the spectrum here in many facets of the arguement.

What is the way to solve this arguement you ask?

Take a large group of women who want to join and try it, and put them to the test. Say... 5 million of them.

Set ALL standards, requirements and practices back to the original way they were intended. Before they were altered to allow a higher percentage of women to pass requirement. (That is not a jab at the girls, because I'm sure those changes are why a higher percentage of guys pass now as well.) There could not be any changes made to facilitate the "This isn't fair because I'm smaller and weaker" clause. Equal is Equal in the eyes of most of the women posting on this thread, so that shouldn't be a problem. Right?

Then, if there are some of those women left standing at the end of the most physically and mentally excruciating training in the world, I say... let them do thier thing in the field.

Will this ever happen in our lifetime though? I doubt it.

Edit to add: By "Will this happen in our lifetime..." I mean the test. Did not mean that no women would be left standing at the end of it. Saw that one coming lol.

I dont want to be rude.

But if you want to start talking about pain, im going to play the rape card again....... I find it hard to believe a male soldier would be gang raped by a bunch of beefy men, unless they were all gay ? i dont think so.


Rape isn't about sexuality. It's about power and control. Women know the difference. Not many men do, apparently.

If a woman can pass all the tests she should be able to fulfill any combat role normally given to men. Any woman that enters that role will be mentally prepared for it, knowing full well that if caught she will be treated differently than a man in the same position.

It's ridiculous to think that a woman can't be as strong emotionally or have as much endurance than a man. Women can take pain better than men. They have faster reflexes. Better response times. And they are quicker on snap decisions, especially ones that require one to "man up", so to speak.

Some of you fellas need to get married. You'll find out the day after the wedding what I mean.
