No, the mere presence of women in a combat zone creates a dangerous mental shift in men

So seeing dead bodies in combat isn't a mind **** but having a woman in combat is? How the hell does that make sense?

@4QRGZ6LRepublicanfrom Illinois  answered…2yrs

Yes, as long as they can pass the same physical tests as men and as long as they are drafted when there is a draft, just like men. Equality should cover all aspects of serving in the Armed Forces and as serving on the front lines.

@58TZS8NRepublicanfrom South Carolina  answered…2yrs

Men in combat are inclined to protect the women and become less effective in engaging the enemy.

@4QS3BTDRepublican from California answered…2yrs

I believe that the hard wiring of males will result in many poor decisions in combat should women be on the front lines.

@4QQR473Republicanfrom California  answered…2yrs

I believe that we are supporting a culture that glorifies violence by putting too much stress on this issue. There are many ways to support a culture that praises and encourages peaceful means as the primary and most effective way to solve problems, but pulling hard for womens' right to fight in the military as a high priority in the movement for gender equality seems misguided to me.

No. Women have periods, and if they are on a combat tour in a desert in Afghanistan they can't exactly bleed on tissues and throw it away in a trash can. Also, they can't have toilet paper, and women can't pee in such a way that it wouldn't touch them. If they pee without the chance to wipe themselves with something clean, they would be at serious risk of infection.

No women will ruin everything with their emotions! Men are emotionless. And you better believe me or I will throw a tantrum!

@Keenan-LoucksDemocrat from Michigan disagreed…1yr

Yes Yes, preventing women from serving in combat roles is discriminatory

That's not true

@4QQ74YHRepublicanfrom Texas  answered…2yrs

Obviously not, we want to kill people in battle, not make more. They are not as strong as men and will bring down the effectiveness of a combat unit. The Marines did a study on this and it supports this.

@4QQ7FBJLibertarianfrom North Dakota  answered…2yrs

Yes, if women serve in all women units. Armies throughout history have had women in the ranks, but had to segregate them due to rape, fraternization, and other psychological factors that come with co-ed groups.

@58SSRJWConstitutionfrom South Carolina  answered…2yrs

Women are more susceptible to sexual and physical assault in combat roles. This may make them emotional less stable in life or death situations.

@4QQZ2F2Republicanfrom Georgia  answered…2yrs

Women should be allowed MOS's that are traditionally combat but not in positions that place them in units where survival depends on defense of each other. Not because women are not capable but because our society raises males to defend and protect females, this may interfere with efficient operation in a combat situation.

@58SJGXSDemocratfrom New York  answered…2yrs

If 99 out of 100 soldiers are killed in combat the remaining solder can help revive the births of the human race. Each woman who is killed represents a child that will never be born.

@58SC92MLibertarianfrom Massachusetts  answered…2yrs

Yes, anyone stupid enough to volunteer for military service should be allowed to do so.

@6FS7H6KLibertarianfrom Maine  answered…2yrs

no, because if all the women get killed, it is harder to reproduce. But if they can't have a baby then they can join.

@58SYB4NRepublicanfrom Missouri  answered…2yrs

No, there are circumstances in which a captured woman can creat a larger incident. More so than a man being captured and could affect especially covert operations.

There is also a special social construct that is created in solely combat oriented groups that when adding a woman to that mix may compromise that social aspect in many different ways. While mixing things up is not bad doing this can lead to a decline is the affectivness of those special units.

I do not believe for one second that woman cannot do the same job as men. But pretending that men and women are the same and the enemy and our own government would react to every situation regardless of the gender of the soldier is unrealistic.

@6G6GWP6Constitutionfrom Texas  answered…2yrs

I say no to this question, but my reason is that when you are in training, you have a more likely chance of cheating on your spouse in the military. I do think they should be allowed to serve their country but what happens when we have no one at home raising the kids, making clothes, making bullets, If we have Women in the military, then we will have to force our kids to do these tasks, and that goes against child labor laws.

@4QQG2MDDemocratfrom Colorado  answered…2yrs

Yes, for we should understand war is hell and women and men dying for corporate profit is wrong in general, but seeing both sexes being maimed and killed helps us understand this, hopefully.

@9W2TMXHGreen from Florida answered…10mos

Yes as long as they pass the required physical test and are put in only women squads.

@9H9JBPJRepublican from Maryland answered…2yrs

@9H6LPKQPeace and Freedom from New Jersey answered…2yrs

Women throughout history have fought and died for their nations and should be allowed to do so.

@4QQQ8MQDemocratfrom Oregon  answered…2yrs

Yes, but only if they requested it and they are physically, emotionally, and mentally capable of the task.

@4QRSHMSGreenfrom Illinois  answered…2yrs

Yes, and make them register with Selective Service when they are 18, just like men.

@4QRFFG4Democratfrom Florida  answered…2yrs

It doesn't matter what gender, race, or sexuality you are. If you can get the job done, then they should let you do it

@4QQHK97Green from Washington answered…2yrs

@4QPXFPVRepublicanfrom South Carolina  answered…2yrs

It has been proven that women drag down men in combat. And taking women hostages will OBVIOUSLY lead to trouble and sexual harassment if taken hostage.

@4QQFWNRRepublicanfrom Oklahoma  answered…2yrs

Women are a distraction to the men who wouldn't perform as well in a combative situation. Also, women are too vulnerable to rape by the enemy.

@4QQ5NNGGreenfrom Minnesota  answered…2yrs

@4QRPY86Greenfrom Vermont  answered…2yrs

Since the reason for allowing this is because the all volunteer military cannot get enough male volunteers, why don't we just reinstitute the Draft? The answer is that there would be rebellion if the Draft came back. Hence, women can do everything now. My stance is that the US needs to give up Empire. Then, neither men nor women will have to serve in combat roles. Just saying...

@B4LQMKZDemocrat from California answered…11hrs

Yes, and the military must be severely regulated to drastically increase diversity, drastically decrease white supremacist heterosexist patriarchial imperialism, and drastically increase safety assurances and reporting procedures

@B4JD7R8Green from Maryland answered…7 days

I am morally against a large military, hence I wish no one was in combat roles

@B4HR9MZWomen’s Equality from California answered…1wk

Yes, but only if they are deemed physically and mentally fit.

@B4BXLZ6Transhumanist from Texas answered…3wks

Yes in my opinion women shouldn't work if they have husband's and a stable family

@B3P5KL6Veteran from Ohio answered…2mos

Yes, but only for garrison duty (where combat is still a possibility) rather than alongside men out in the field. Men will behave too riskily if fighting alongside women.

@B3C23QJSocialist from Florida answered…2mos

No, because the US military is an imperialist organization and we should demilitarize all together.

@B3BVYNWRepublican from Colorado answered…2mos

@B2VS2VXLibertarian from California answered…3mos

No. The logistics of creating separate and private facilities in a combat zone is often not possible.

@PerkiLlamaPeace and Freedom from Florida answered…3mos

I don’t get involved in women’s issues. Also, the military sucks. Especially, memorial island in Vero Beach.

@B2TZFYYTranshumanist from North Carolina answered…3mos

@B2GRLRQTranshumanist from New Jersey answered…4mos

Yes, as long as they can pass the same physical tests as men, and soldiers of both genders are sexually neutralized during service
