Killing isn't natural. It's trained.
There's a controversial book on it called
where it's claimed
before a certain point in history, people simply didn't shoot at each other. Then the theory of
came abount and people were trained to shot at person shaped targets.
Point am making is, we now have an entire generation of men brought up on movies, games, videos and all the rest to believe that men are born killers.
They're not, they're human beings and human beings don't naturally like to kill each other (generally speaking, and no am not arguing that men
aren't more aggressive ...).
It's all just training. Yes, because of the differences between men and women I would expect there to be more competent men in fighting units, but I
don't understand why the men responding in this thread are pointing that out like it means anything. Nor do I understand this gloating about training
I don't know what it's like in America, maybe Americans are weird. Sorry I'm going to use police as an example because it's what I know about, but
I find this American talk strange. Where I am police baseline training for women as an example is lowered for women because they need women in the
police force. Until men can walk into women's toilets and body search a woman without problems ... I suppose that's how it is.
To make something clear though ... every single baseline for every single special response unit is the same between genders
. It's a clear
message, if you want to be in a combat situation you have to be trained in it. Yet I still hear men complaining about it as if every woman beat copper
is having to protect a man's vulernable back from being perforated every single morning.
No offense to anyone, but sometimes it's tiresome listening to it.

Any human would react to the screams of a child. If you can be trained to kill, you can be trained to treat your fellow squaddie as just another
squaddie. Any highly trained person should know that the best thing they can do for their comrade is to follow their training.
2, Women react differently to the sounds of children screaming ignoring their training and compromising their squad!
If you're honestly telling me that if I had a child here right now, and I was about to shoot that poor child in the head ... that you wouldn't
struggle with that ... then you're telling me men aren't human. I struggle to write about it.
3. Rape is a very powerful weapon of war, as is the pregnancy afterwards.
It's horrible, yes. It's also pretty horrible if I made you think about your pants area being fed to a blender. Just saying.
4. You need to be subconciously able to crawl in some tight places, sometimes in very tall grass with very dangerous insects and so forth. You
cant shreik when a large spider walks over your face.
5. You need to be able to lift enough to keep going for long periods of time. Its a genetic/phsyical aspect that women are not as strong as
I just be frank about this one ...
I'm not any type of special person, but I have massive keep fit phases. I train with both genders a lot. Yes, men are generally fitter ... but army
men aren't exactly Mister T. In fact, the more shaped like a bag of rocks the person is, the more likely they are to be trailing up the rear behind
even the allegedly slow women. Army and police people aren't even that strong half the time. They have better cardio than brute strength.
As for pain and acting awkward and all the rest ... I've seen big scary looking men taking breaks and having tears run down their face getting back
tattoos. It happens.
So to say that women can't meet the training requirements ... they can, they have, and they do. If you're making an arguement from sexuality ... you
might have a point. Sexual abuse in the army or police is never a ncie thing to hear about ...
Physically though ... the top woman MMA fighter or tactical response operative will beat down your average man. It's just a fact. True, said MMA
fighter might not be the best ever when men are brought into the equation, but if the person can do the job ... then there is no argument.
I actually think the saddest thing about this is that men are now convinced they're all natural killing machines. Naturally angry a bit maybe, but
men were never meant to kill hundreds of people. It's very sad.
