You are not addressing the real heart of the matter. The real heart of the matter is the progressive loss of the diversity between men and women. I do think this will have negative consequences on the battlefield, but those will be less felt than the negative consequences it has for male-female relationships overall. When men are not being the protectors and women are not being the nurturers, it will result in damage to society. It is already rearing its ugly head in the moral anarchy of the youth (I'm a "youth") of our generation. With women deployed in faraway lands, there will be no one left to keep the home fires burning, so to speak, and we will all suffer.
