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.
