    My intention in this post is not to insult anyone. That said:

    Alot of people say women, people with mental disabilities (small ones not BAD ones), gay people, and so on should not be allowed to serve in the armed forces. I say $$$$ that. I dont care who is in there so long as they are there to do the job and capable of doing the job assigned to them, bottom line. I would be honored to be represented by a gay person, a retard, a female, etc so long as they are there fighting for our cause, our freedom, and our beliefs they are an honor to me in and of that respect alone.

    If they're enlisting, I've got no problem with them being in there. A woman can pull a trigger just as easy as a guy.

    I'm glad they're not in the draft, though.

    edit:hey dp - from now on, when you post polls, could you put an expiration date on them? Like 7 days or less would be cool.

    I don't have a problem with women being in the military. I agree with RoDs first post. As long as they are capable of their job and they do it, it's fine with me.

    Erm... No, that's not really why. (yeah, I know you were joking. at least I hope so)

    Women have a larger chance of being abused sexually if they're taken as POWs, and I can understand why a woman wouldn't want to subject herself to the possibility. If they it's a risk they're willing to take, though, more power to them.

    They still have the draft?
    If you ever need a hug, just ask.

    > why arent women in the draft?

    Standard "women aren't suited for combat etc. etc."

    Although I think I gave a pretty good reason.

    Sorry, I think that's complete garbage. I thought women and men were supposed to be treated equal? Forcing men to go to war while women don't have to. I could see this 50 years ago, but not now.

    My future wife had better go to war. That or she'll be doomed to stay in my god damn kitchen and make me my god damn dinner every single day for the rest of my god damn life.

    youre right, i mean they do want equality, the only problem i see from women being in the service is the fact that some guys are too macho ya know "this man's army" i could see like hazing type stuff happening to women more often if they got full blown equality.....aka the drafting of women
