  • If we want "equality", then that's it. You got it.
    If we put exemptions to that equality when it's no longer convenient for us, then we're hypocrites

  • Why is this in religious debate?

    Some people have beliefs deeply rooted in their religion regarding gender roles of men and women and may not feel it is appropriate fro women to be allowed the same roles as men especially regarding military service and/or being on the front lines in combat roles.

  • I think if it's what a woman wants to do, then more power to her.

    My 21 yr. old niece is in a co-ed combat unit in Israel. She has definitely seen things that she wouldn't have 10 years ago.
