society's ability to re-populate after wars has been due to females not being in combat. yes, there have been civilian casualties in war, but if as many women fought in WW2 as men and the same numbers were killed in combat, what would the population of these countries have been? you only need one man but you definitiely need women to reproduce and grow the population. one man can impregnate many women but 100 men and only i woman still results in only pregnancy. i'm all for equal rights but this seems assanine.

it is more of people wishing the world worked different from the way it does

Last week as a last hoorah, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta lifted the ban on women serving combat even though women have been serving in combat for quite some time. Now, a new Rasmussen Report shows 59 percent of voters favor women serving in full combat positions.

Most voters think women in the military should be able to fight in combat just like men do. But they still believe overwhelmingly that women need to pass the same physical tests as men if they’re in special forces like the Green Berets and Navy SEALs.
