I don’t like the idea of women in combat for lots of reasons, but my main concern is that different strength and fitness requirements will apply.
If you need run a mile in boots with a 50-pound pack on your back and a rifle in your hands, then that’s what you need to do — whether you’re a man or a woman.
But we’ve seen this before (e.g., with policemen and fireman), and we know what will happen. They’ll let the women in on easier terms than the men.
