If they are tough enough to do it I don't see why not.

I think if they want to the should be able to. As long as they know what they're getting into.

no because the natural instinct of the male is to protect a female which would undermine the effectiveness of the troops she was fighting with

If one's survival is at stake, who would say you can't fight?
Answered By: rph098 - 12/12/2008
No question - they should. If you are reduced to hand to hand combat to survive everyone better be there fighting.

Probably a bad idea even though many are just as brave and can handle pain better than a man- childbirth. Its' the physical strength issue- look how many women cannot escape a r**e, although they can be trained to increase their odds significantly. Then there is the extreme likelihood of r**e after capture. Some young... More

Just thinking of the Canadian Forces and many others, including the UK forces and Israeli forces, sex is not a determination of abilities. The best people for the job are put into place.

I'd say no. If a terrorist country gets there hand on a female soldier then it would be much worse for them. Woman have a better chance of getten snatched by a terrorist. But I do think we should be taught the same stuff and all that. They might as well teach us to defend ourselves.
