No one is forced to join the US Military anymore (not since shortly after I was born (I will be 42 in a few weeks). Your slippery slope argument holds no basis.

Martin E. Dempsey decreed that no battlefield mission or military role is off-limits to the female sex. The defense secretary and the general thus liberated mothers, daughters, sisters and wives to kill and be killed in the infantry, commando raids, even in Obama administration "overseas contingency operations." In so doing, they also slashed away at that last institutional protection for the space that separates men...
