So as years go by, innovations are always coming in regards to women in the military and equality seems that it shall some day come. Women are entering the infantry as medics, now, women are fighting their way onto submarines, etc, etc... but what about as regular infantrymen? What are the reasons for the restrictions, anyways? I mean I know the regular: Infantrymen are too rowdy and can't control themselves around a lady (which is the men's problem, not the women's) Women are not physically strong enough (They have to work harder, but everyone knows that every woman is capable of being as physically fit as every man, take it from someone that pumps iron every day and outruns most of the cross country team!) Pregnant (This can happen in any brach of the armed services. Women carry babies, it is a known fact. Solution: Be loyal to your partner back home while deployed and abstain! People CAN control themselves, and if they can't, then hell what are they doing in the US army anyways.) They are a distraction (Again, that's the men's problem, not the women's) So, if someone would please enlighten me on to why this is so, I would be honoured to hear a true, good to heart reason. In my humble opinion, if a women is the best man for the job, then they should have it. I am in no way saying that women should be drafted or anything, or even that all women are fit for the job, because that is obviously not so. But all men aren't fit for the job every. I say standards should not be lowered, but if a woman is fitting of them, and she wants it, what is it that prohibits her from doing so?
