While I understand your concern, male soldiers still get raped anyway. They're tortured, mutilated, raped, and killed.
Yes, there's a statistical different inclining that women would more likely get all of that on top of death, but dead is dead either way.
To exclude some people just because they're more likely to have something happen to them is ignoring what they could bring in, and what it means to let them in in the first place.

I phrased it wrong, I guess, but what you're describing is different.
They aren't allowed to drive, because a medical condition does not give them the ability to safely drive unlike those without those conditions.
Saying a woman can't be a soldier isn't like saying a blind man shouldn't drive. A woman can preform her task as required, if given the right conditions. If you're going to say a woman can't go to war, because she could get raped, then why allow anyone to drive, when they could get in a wreck?

You did phrase it wrong and that's why I made my comment. My comment was based purely on "To exclude some people just because they're more likely to have something happen to them is ignoring what they could bring in, and what it means to let them in in the first place."
I know what I said was retarded, I tried very hard to make it look that way.
I'm not as funny as I'd like to be.

*ON POINT COUNTER ARGUMENT*
While you have a point, and women are more likely than men to be raped in combat situations, still- the rate of women raped or sexually assaulted in the US military is appalling. Even if you halve the rate it's still a major problem.
The way I see it: As long as a woman can make it to current infantry standards(not special weaker standards to women, just the standards of physical fitness already set) and are assigned to units to mix with men, I see no problem. A woman who has proved herself tough enough to be in a testosterone-driven environment is more likely to be willing and able to stave off a sexual attack by military personal than one who is used to working in an office or occasionally in the field, under supervision with officers/SNCOs making sure enlisted men don't get rowdy in her at her presence.
Trust the women to hold their own and eventually BECOME as salty and hardcore as the rest of the (male) infantry, and the problems (at least for them specifically) will cease to be. Continue to treat them as being more delicate and a social divide will only continue. If that is what you seek then I disagree but understand.

Not for everyone though, so you can't use it as a justification for being a dick.

wise word also men will have physical advantages, and better coordination hand-eye (this has been proved scientifically), i don't know if they are medicated in her period to not go mad and end doing something regrettable

I actually agree with you. In combat, rape is used a lot to mentally destroy women.
