Any of you guys remember the raging debate we had on here a few years ago about how women were unfairly discriminated against in the military because they could not get combat experience?
Remember the arguments put forward by the bleeding hearts about how many girls desperately wanted the chance and how many of them were easily able to qualify?

Well, the numbers are in, and they confirmed what the rest of us already knew: The vast majority of girls have no interest in taking a combat role.

JUST two of the 3100 women in the Australia Army have taken up the highly publicised opportunity to join the Infantry.
And both of them are in the Army Reserve.

Yep, not shocked at all. Look at the number of female laborers, which is another physically intense job, but doesn't carry a legitimate risk of death, rape or torture.

It's typical of the feminist types though; talk shit and kick up a storm about what women want to do but cannot, but in reality they f**king don't.

Thats the problem with australia doing shit to seem politically correct same as hiiring a woman or a different race to make your workplace seem equal if they can do the same job then yeh if not its a waste of time just to keep appearances

News.com isn't known for accurate journalism, and this is no exception. Having said that, it does capture the overall sentiment.
In the end, if a girl can pass the required standard, she should be able to do what she wants. I don't know of a girl who actually has passed the physical emplyment standard yet, but know of girls who could do it if they wanted, and would dominate a lot of the guys. Not particularly feminine girls though...

This isn't so much about a woman's ability to handle the role as it is about their desire to do so.
