In relation to female physiology, and in common sense, the average woman is not physically built like a man. However, women do have a higher threshold for pain tolerance.

False, the only reason people say that is because of pregnancy, when delivering a child massive amounts of hormones and endorphins kick in allowing them to handle the pain.

I have known people that have done research papers in different views on the subject. This is something that can be endlessly debated. Needless to say, I am just passing along info I have heard from having a mom as a physical therapist. Obviously not my area of expertise.

The reasons why are irrelevant, congress and the pentagon have seen it fit not to allow women in combat arms jobs, they did this because its what they believe is the best interest of the military.
Also, FET does not equal infantry, that little myth is pretty far off. They are not an offensive combat force, if they were they wouldnt need to be attached to an infantry unit..

If they want to serve in combat a willing SOF unit should allow anyone who can meet the physical standards to go through indoc, if a chick could really make it through BUD/S, BRC, SFAS, etc. you might as well let them in...

For the record, I never said I wanted be an 0311. The issue was with this guy who said all women, regardless of MOS, got their rank on their knees and backs. I don't just mean the issue of women in combat (which they already ARE), I mean the issue of us being in, period. And yes there are some women who could kick some male ass.

Wanted to add, there is a guy in my pool who is shorter and lighter than me, and he is going to be a Grunt. Why is he allowed despite his size? He is like 5'4" and 130 lb. probably.
