Obviously there isn't anyone here who is or was in the military.
I will clarify exactly with my husband tonight exactly why the military forbids women in combat missions.
Perhaps there are a few decent "southern gentlemen" here but the majority of the men in the military are not gentlemen and if there were a woman
next to him it would be too distracting. This is the year 2004, not 1690!
There is a reason why God created man and a woman. Man is the stronger of the two and so therefore is the hunter, fighter, etc.
Women are stronger in the inside and so therefore we are more capable of bearing children and raising a family and taking care of our men.
The military doesnt allow women in combat because they are sexist. There is a reason for it.
But, again, I am a woman of three children and if I were a man, I would not want a woman beside me in combat, I would want a strong man.
I do think that if a man had a woman next to him in combat, that man might think he would have to protect the woman because he knows he is stronger
than she is. Again, a reason why the military will not allow women in combat. (That is, in the United States)
