No I'm saying the fact they can currently under the new policy choose whether or not they get channeled into combat heavy training is a biase that hurts men, if they can choose then men have to be allowed to choose. If they cannot choose then its a policy that is fair. Its not fair the way they have it set up.
As it stands now and has stood since the expiration of the Vietnam draft, men can choose whatever military profession they want and are qualified for. They are not forced into combat roles by virtue of their maleness.
I've seen mentioned earlier in this thread word of drafts. While yes it is conceivably possible in the future, it is so far removed from likelihood as to be almost pointless. We in fact have the world's most professional and competent military force because, for one, it is voluntary. The situation around the world would have to go seriously off the rails for the US to consider a draft. Even war with Iran or North Korea would not precipitate a draft. It didn't with either war in Iraq or Afghanistan and those were pretty hefty undertakings.
So with the understanding military service in the US is voluntary and what course you seek in the military is up to the individual and their qualifications, I see no issues of unfairness or inequality.
Look how quickly gays in the military has become a non-issue. It has for me at least and I only rarely hear it mentioned. Any prior misgivings I may have had about it were unfounded. I also think women in combat roles will be a non-issue. The number of women who seek those roles out will not be large and of that small set not all will qualify, that is just the numbers. And this in no way discredits the service they have and do offer currently.
Where there is potential for issues is, were some to argue the standard for combat readiness is somehow 'unfair' to women and that the standard should be lowered in some misguided attempt to correct a perceived wrong. I could see some rabid Fluke-like advocate foaming at the mouth on capitol hill insisting the physical requirements needed to be a successful combat soldier is unfair and bars women from achieving their aspirations in life.
I am certain there are women out there that can do it and frankly I cant wait for the first report of a sassy blond ferocious woman capping some fundamentalist who thinks no more of women than his cache of cattle. I'll be the first in line to see that movie when it comes out!
