If combat means living in a ditch, females have biological problems
staying in a ditch for thirty days because they get infections and they
don't have upper body strength. I mean, some do, but they're
relatively rare. On the other hand, men are basically little piglets,
you drop them in the ditch, they roll around in it, doesn't matter, you
know. These things are very real. On the other hand, if combat
means being on an Aegis-class cruiser managing the computer controls
for twelve ships and their rockets, a female may be again dramatically
better than a male who gets very, very frustrated sitting in a chair all
the time because males are biologically driven to go out and hunt
