Why cant women join the infantry?

#1
What's the real reason? I've heard excuses that claim that men would be more inclined to help a injured woman instead of getting on with the job. Well that claim is just like saying "women can't join the infantry because the men think you need special treatment". That's a bit sexist. And I can honestly say if I was in Iraq and a woman got shot standing next to me. My thoughts would be about saving my own arse from the same happening to me ... not helping her sorry arse off the deck. But I guess I'm what you would call a modern man. I've heard excuses that women would be a distraction and the blokes would be putting too much attention into trying to get a shag than thinking about fighting. But women are allowed to work everywhere else and the job still gets done in other proffessions. This claim basically says "women are a drain on male productivity" ... that's probably true actually, but still ....

So what's the reason then? Why don't they let women join the infantry?

Well where I come from women can serve everywhere a man can. Even on sub's.
Anyway why so many countries do not allowed women is.....because of all the reasons you mentioned yourself.
Its easy to sit and think about it in the equal right way and all that but when it comes down to reality....

And yes I am a woman.

I'm thinking that in order to take steps towards equality why not have a "girls only" regiment? Call it The Sisters of Battle and have a load of kick ass steaming hot bitches in PVC cat suits and big guns. Lets put an end to sexism and make it happen.

I know a few girls who could be in The Sisters of Battle.

They'd be harder than your cat - I've heard he's a pussy.

Your location says Kuwait. That's hardly the most liberal of places. Birds have to wear them big veil things over there.
Look, Kuwait have changed a lot since 2003 and even more since they nipped Saddam. Ok its not going fast but its becomming more and more liberal.
