Reasons To Exclude Females From Combat Zones

Reasons To Exclude Females From Combat Zones

1. Females are less physically fit for direct physical combat than men.

If you were a 200 lb. soldier, wounded and being over-run by the enemy. Do you think that a female soldier could drag you to the safety of a more secure position 200 yards to the rear?

If you would like to bet your life on this scenario, be my guest. But I demand that this lethal handicap not be imposed upon me, or my male (or female) loved ones.

The facts are that physical standards must be lowered in order to accommodate women in direct physical combat.

 2. Females are more prone to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and their cases of this psychopathology are more difficult to treat.

The following summary of differential effects of trauma upon the sexes basically summarizes what I have read elsewhere and have experienced in treating numerous instances of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in both sexes during my psychological practice of over 35 years.

3. The infusion of females into close stress-filled quarters with men inevitably leads to increased incidences of sex behavior problems and a wasteful cycle of investigation, adjudication, punishment, dishonorable discharges, and early discharges due to pregnancy. These waste factors are greatly multiplied when the lost costs and benefits of extensive training for our service men and women are factored-in.

Please tolerate brief commercial preceding the Obama Administration’s pathetic attempt to deal with the increased military sexual problems that its policies have created.
