Australia is apparently considering allowing female soldiers into frontline combat roles.
I keep on hearing stupid people (mostly men) saying that "women" can't match men for physical strength.
This is the same sort of thing as saying "women" can't be taller than men.
I know women who are taller than almost every man I know, including me.
And I know women who are physically strong enough to beat the crap out of most--if not all--of the men I know.
Sure, there aren't as many women as men who are that strong, but that's not the point. If you can do the job, that's the point.
