I cannot understand why women are so anxious to take part in military combat, but I suspect that they don’t really know what combat is.
I have been there, and I’ll give you a short explanation.
You get a uniform and a rifle, and you’re told to shoot and kill someone in a different uniform. The only trouble is that this someone also has a rifle and also was told to shoot and kill someone. If this someone is you and he (or she) kills you, then you’re dead and will come home in a wooden box.
Wouldn’t you rather be alive and come home in a pretty dress?
