I don’t mind the question being looked at, if there is zero political interference on the question. Thanks to technological advances, it is a reasonable question to ask if there are military positions that can now be filled by women that could not before.
But it has to be the military that does the assessment and politicians need to keep their mouths shut.
There is no currently used technology that makes females remotely as capable as men when it comes to humping 200+ pounds of gear, body armor and weaponry in nasty countries full of nasty thuggith people and shooting/blowing apart said thugs. Thugs that would like nothing better than to get their feral hands on some small 110 pound American woman thought she could handle combat.
If you stepped on an IED and got your legs blown off, would you want to rely on a woman half your size and weight and 30% of your body strength to drag you, under fire, to safety? This whole thing is bullsh!t, politically correct insanity.
Having women in combat with men? There’s actually nothing reasonable about the question. Nothing.
However, being able to fill some positions and not others is in itself a deficiency. If males are able to fill all positions and females only some, by introducing females to the equation, you are degrading your group by reducing your options.
