All I know is what I can say about myself. I know that I have the intellegence to learn what needs to be learned. I don't know if I could ever "train" myself to supress the emotional side of being a female. I wouldn't want me to be the one another person was depending on to watch his/her back in battle as infantry. There are, however, plenty of jobs women can do that supports and enhances the job done in battle.

No. Women on the front lines would be a distraction to the men. You are stuck there for long periods of time. Rapes would become a problems. Mix close quarters of men and women, boredom of waiting, and the violence of war and you have a combination for disaster. Besides...when they're stuck in a fox hole for days and days with no showers, no means to clean up, what will a menstruating women do and what man would want to be stuck with her?
You should read the article, its already happening and those women are already quite successful

I'm anon 6:34. Just want to add that I think the death or horrible wounds of a female soldier would cut much more deeply into the psyche of the unit.
