Some quotes from those who oppose sending women to the front-lines:
We’re putting the sexes together as if eros and human passion don’t exist. All the steps that for thousands of years have been in place to protect women have been destroyed by Feminists who see these protections and standards as oppression. They are in fact the opposite. It takes a village to protect women – with both men and women holding each other to high standards of behavior. The differences in how we treat the sexes not only exist; they are essential. We don’t expect women to be treated like men – that would be barbaric. We don’t expect men to be treated like women – that would be pathetic. In the age of “friends with benefits” and “dress like a slut” day, everybody instinctively knows that how a woman dresses affects men. They can’t turn it off. That’s why dress and other behaviors in our own control matter. The Feminist’s assumption that we can presto-chango transform our natures is absurd (and when tested is proven false.) They give themselves the lie by adding double standards – women can be sluts, but you have to respect them as if they were chaste; women can do what men can do, except you need to gender-norm the testing standards to manufacture equal results. There’s no way they can create sexless uniformity among men and women, so they have to propagate a huge deception. They falsely frame the issue as one of civil rights and liberation, making it all but impossible to discuss the real issues.
A recent study, for instance, by Britain’s Tri-Service Review found that mixed-gender combat units have “lower survivability,” a “reduced lethality rate” and reduced deployability. This study, along with countless others done over the last 40 years, demonstrate that combat capabilities are so heavily weighted toward men that the gap cannot be closed. As Marine Corps captain Lauren Serrano put it in a September 2014 article in the Marine Gazette: “Acknowledging that women are different (not just physically) than men is a hard truth that plays an enormous role in this discussion.”
Women are twice as likely to suffer injuries and are three times more undeployable than men. Servicewomen are four times likelier to report being ill than servicemen. The percentage of servicewomen being medically unavailable at any time is twice that of servicemen. Then there’s pregnancy.
