Until we have a shortage of qualified males needed to fill these combat MOS's, why are we even entertaining women in these roles?
Scubasteve, I agree with you on that dude. Every rifleman I know has agreed that women in combat are more of a liability than anything.
Bring up the hygiene issue.
Also FYI, the first 2 females allowed into Marine Infantry Officers Course (IOC) FAILED a couple weeks ago. They voluntarily washed out, couldn't hack it. We've been fighting the majority of wars for thousands of year... men. I don't see that it should be any different and comparing it with blacks and racism is ridiculous, there is no comparison there.
