Morning Poll: Should Women in Military Be Allowed to Serve Combat Roles?
Franks argues that sexual tension between male and female soldiers "further complicates the situation by providing one more component that can negatively affect morale."
He also points out that woman -- in general -- are physically weaker than men and slower on their feet, which could create a lower standard for the physical requirements of combat troops.
See Franks' column here -- unlike his fear of fagalas, he makes a few valid points in his arguments against women in the military serving in combat roles (assuming you can abandon the principles of equality and accept reality).
We want to know what you think: should women in the military be allowed to serve in combat roles?
