So, i personally have a problem with this whole “women being allowed into the infantry” Thing going on in the marine corps. They are trying to show that women are equal to men, but i completely disagree, ESPECIALLY when it comes to our physical strength. Let me explain why. 1. Even though they are trying to prove they are equal, the amount of training and sets of PFT’s they are making women do to join infantry is owed than what the guys do. How is that equal again? 2. I’ve carried my fiancés ruck sack and it is heavy as FUCK, not to mention they have their camel backs which hold over a gallon of water in it, their boots, their gear which includes their weapon which isn’t light at all, and they do hikes in the mountains with them all the damn time. There are men passing out, suffering from heat exhaustion, falling and breaking limbs, so do you honestly believe that women could do any better? 3. Women have periods. And last time I checked, you don’t get birth control when you’re on your deployment. 4. If you’re in a firefight and the guy next to you gets hit, nobody else is around and you’ve got to get him out of harms way and get him somewhere you can dress his wound. This guy has over a hundred pounds of gear on, AND ontop of that, he was around 175 pounds! I’d personally LOVE to see you haul his ass around on your back, also carrying your gear making sure you don’t get shot. Last thing. You as a woman are a liability to others. If you get hurt, as men every one of them has some sort of focus on you, instead of the task at hand. They are ALL going to want to make sure you are safe. So don’t tell me women are equal to men, because we aren’t.
