I can see how the military could be threatened, but how is society threatened by this?

Simple really, how willing will we as a society be to sending our wives, mothers and daughters off to die in a war? And how about drafting them against their will to send them off to die? The Israels tried this in 1948 and it was a horrible experience for them. They banned women from combat in 1950 as a result.

Sometimes you need to think before posting.

That’s like askng “If the levees around New Orleans are threatened, how is New Orleans threatened?”.

If the defenders of society are threatened, society is threatened.

When we lose the next war, thanks to the dilution of military capabilities/fragmentation of unit cohesion, we will have to learn Chinese to serve our new masters.

“but how is society threatened by this?”

Taking the essential element of civilization, the young women,, the critical nucleus of it’s young families, and sending them at that innocent age into the mind shattering experience of infantry combat. Yeah,, sounds like a great way to build a better society. And when a draft kicks in, they will do what it takes to avoid the draft, thats get knocked up FAST.
So we will create a generation of very young single moms.

But yeah,, lets take our daughters, fill them with dread, force them to do something against the essential nature of the majority of them who grew up singing in the choir and watching romantic movies at slumber parties. Lets give them them the ultimate nightmare, and call it a right.

Yeah, can’t see how that could EVER harm society.

Only sci-fi movie fans think women will be as effective as a man in combat anyway.

Putting aside how it destroys the human balance and society, have you forgotten what happens if America loses a major war?

Have you come to think that wars are like a sporting event between the respective "military" forces and then they both return to their respective homes with society still intact?

If America loses a major war, then we become whatever the conquerors remake us into.
