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.
I said it was a reasonable question to ask, in light of technological changes that have happened in the military. It was not a supportive position, if it was not feasible.
I also said that this was for the military to determine, and only the military. Politicians need to stay out of it, that is my position.
