[Snip]...before the Marine Corps moves forward with this concept, should we not ask the hard questions and gain opinions of combat-experienced Marines (male and female alike) as to the purpose, the impact, and the gains from such a move? As a combat-experienced Marine officer, and a female, I am here to tell you that we are not all created equal, and attempting to place females in the infantry will not improve the Marine Corps as the Nations force-in-readiness or improve our national security.

No, we are not all created equal in physical nor mental ability. The great equalizer is that all of our souls are equal before the Lord.

also of course, it means absolutely nothing in terms of battlefield competence.

The sole purpose is to undermine our military.

Your right on with that....there should be no gender norms in police, fireman or military...if a woman can hold her own in these professions, good for them. I applaud them, but to have 2 different norms, that is not only stupid, the women that take advantage of that are a danger to everyone...I wouldn't want 120 pound female try to take me down the ladder during a fire. I weigh more than she does...I was in Las Vegas when the MGM burned, volunteered to work triage with hte EMT. A job, as a nurse I was qualified for. It was like being in a war zone, the army sent Helicopters to evac. the roof ( I think they were stallion helo’s and when they hovered overhead to pick up those that made it to the roof, the power of the copter would pick up water laying in the street and I would have to use all my weight to keep the ambulance doors from blowing shut. Ambulances going in and out of the street constantly, glass all over the ground from people breaking out windows, a danger to those helping on the ground, saw people using sheets tied together to try and get out of their rooms and the hotel/casino was 25 stories high. Its something you never forget. plus people on the ground screaming and running hysterically. The fire ladders were only 9 stories high and it was build before fire extinguish had to be installed in each room. They made a lot of changes after that over 70 people died. There was a doctors convention in town so we had many doctors working the ground, going from ambulance to ambulance. Not all ambulances carried people, I was in a stationary one, where they would bring people to and decide where to send them. Some could walk up to the corner where they had another triage set up, but lots of volunteers were walkers to assist them...No gender norming for certain positions, they are a danger to everyone...
No, we are not all created equal in physical-—nor mental ability.

I do not want to see women get injured in combat.
Katie “gets it”; she ought to be SecDef instead of the RINO Clown there now...
