Before I even get started with this topic, I can honestly state that I am NOT gender biased. Quite frankly, there are millions of intelligent females who every day go to battle in the challenging world of once "male dominated" business & politics...and win.

But this kind of battle is much different. A precedence will be set regarding female contribution during the Iraqi war. For the first time US female soldiers might be fighting in door to door battles and possibly even engaging in hand to hand combat. In those instances, I truly fear for women and don't think they should be anywhere near such action. I just don't think they can handle it...physically or emotionally.

I would like get some feedback from military personnel who have trained with women. Would male soldiers trust a woman watching their six's in the teeth of battle?

Hi Deleted..

You said that you wanted feedback from someone who had fought with woman?

I'm one up on you!!

I'm a nurse who, out of her own accord, made a descision to help out in the local navy base infirmary.
I am trained in Advanced First aid and level 2 hand to hand combat..still not complete but getting there!!

I am currently getting trained in the use of firearms and this weekend i am going on a training course for battlefield simulations and live fire training.

I come from a military background and i have many friends in the armed forces, both male and female. I think that it is inportant that both genders can do whatever they please as they are fighting for what they believe in and in some ways, having the other sex is useful as they are sometimes more agile for certain things and can give a sense of comfort.

Hope this helps..if not..i'll get my commander and his wife to email you!!

I don't want to sound biased either, but I don't think women should be fighting in front line infantry.

I could imagine what the Iraqis would do to one of our women soldiers if she were captured. Then again, I guess if your a women and willing to take that chance that would be your choice.

Is dad said exactly the same thing!!

Lets just pray that all the woman who are first line troops all have really bad PMS and then the Iraq's will be fleeing for their lives!!!

Thats where my signature comes in handy!!

it's their choice. I've known quite a few military women over the years, and I wouldn't mess with some of them, hehe... I say, more power to 'em.

As for the rape thing....yeah, I'd hate to think what would happen to an Iraqi sodier trying to rape one of our girls, who's then seen by an uncle sam boy.... Let's just say, it would have to be a closed casket funeral....

Guess we'll see if you get a few bites....

Okay...Tyler, your scary!!

One...all my friends and me are told what could happen in the field by woman who have been raped!!!

It's not a laughing matter and i don't think that you would like it either??

I'd just watch your mouth...either that..stick a block of C4 down it and save the admin some trouble!

I saw a report on CNN that showed we have some really skilled Air Force pilots that are women, actually quite a few. I don't know if they are best suited for the front lines, but as RavenStar said, that is their choice. Either way, women play a big part in our military whether it be as a pilot or a nurse or various other jobs.

Thank You ProudAmerican!!

at least someone, apart from Gazrock and jms88, isn't biased and realises the value of woman in combat!

As for you Tyler

I think I would have a difficult time if I were on the front lines with a woman. If she wanted to fly air cover or support and blow the crap outta the baddies before I go there then bully. I am all for it. My Aunt is a retired Lt Col in the USAF and I must say I respect her alot.

So where I stand: Front Line - No, ANY other job - Absotively Posolutely

I don`t think the front line is the right place for anyone male or female so why can`t they join in the dying.

with their problems with females showing too much'd be able to take them out while they were drooling....

I think we've seen enough juvenile soft-porn for one thread that was started with noble intentions.

Tyler, since allowing your return to Above Top Secret, you have shown we moderators one important lesson, once a dirt-bag, always a dirt-bag. I have a hard time thinking of any topic of value you've contributed since your return.

William you are did start out as a noble thread.
I apologize and will make note of your concerns........I though with the War and eveything else some eye candy would be ok..........after all we should have fun. Right?

Thats his problem, nazis can not have fun.

Or maybe he's angry since his "impossible" theory regarding police state turns out to be very possible.

And also. He is putting too much restrictions on everything we say. We can't have a topic where he wouldnt intervent and correct everything.

Here you shouldnt post pics, here you called names, here you used too many icons, here you put a comma instead of a period.

ATS turned into a nazi governed board.

I think you will be shocked but some people found this threat
of extreamly high value. Although they restrained themeslves from posting public opinion. And you know damn well why.

I deleted out tylers immature crap.

Tyler perhaps your role as forum jester and fool would be tolerated more if every now and then you could post some intelligent and insightful points?

posted on Mar, 19 2003 @ 01:15 PM
Tyler, surely you are not so moronic as to think that your vulgar garbage is proper in public. I could only hope that one day you have the opportunity to talk in such a manner in front of my family. I would be more than pleased to show you how a gentleman responds to such filth in the presence of his wife and children.

This site was not designed to be a clownhouse so that you could be the lead clown. Furthermore, deleted did not start this thread so that you could turn it into a pornographic joke.

What a shame, such a sharp mind and such sharp wit trapped in a creature with lousy character.

You know, the ironic thing is, you got bent out of shape over cat jokes and now talk about women as sex object rather than human beings. Like I said, lousy character. What a shame.
