Are there actually any women serving in the Rangers or even Special Forces?

officially women are not allowed to serve in strictly combat missions in the US military.

they can fly planes and helicopters though.

there are no females in Ranger regiments, as they cannot hold combat MOS's. (Technically they can be in RTB, but nobody counts that). Likewise there are no females in any ground combat spec ops groups either (SEALs, GB's, etc..). There could be some female pilots in SOAR. For the most part Spec Ops is a man's man's world.

I was gonna post this but no need to now. Does anyone know the reason why they can't hold a spec ops combat position?

Yep you hit the whole problem with most of the game, too acurate they should have sacrificed some of the authenticity for any number of thing but my vote would have gone for less scenes that could be interpreted as gay innuendos.

They use many excuses but there are really two reasons

1 - women are considered a disctration

2 - men cant handle the mentel stress of watching women be hurt, tortured, or killed

though in other armed services in other countries they just say the truth and that is true for both women and men

One thing that I was thinking is these guys are and have to be ruthless and I don't see woman being like that, and they couldn't keep a mission secret because they talk too much :p

what I'm trying to figure out is why this is posted on two separate forums? by two different users? and the sentence is incorrect. apparently someone can't think of their own post ideas anymore.

really strange. click link.

Guys can be raped too, y'know.

I really don't see why a man should try to stop a woman from fighting for her country. It's a bullshit excuse about them being a distraction. Did you know that women are better snipers than men? Imagine the unlocked potential that the military brass has but they're unwilling to tap because of some stupid chivalry thing about women not fighting.

If a woman is well aware of what she's getting into, just toss her a gun and let her get shit done. Women were not a distraction in world war 2 when they fought in the Red Army, now were they?

Lyudmila Pavlichenko, look her up. 309 enemy kills, survived the war with a few bumps and bruises. She was BLOWN UP for christ's sakes and they still couldn't bring the girl down. She was pulled from the front lines for recruiting and parades and such in the Motherland.

Specifically in terms of special forces if you find women a distraction or can't handle the mental stress of watching women being hurt then you're not fit for special forces in the first place- any special forces soldier who falls for women over men in this way is going to be dead pretty quick in the ops they go on.

It's all bullshit really, it's just about keeping up the macho image.

Idk why everyones getting pissed that woman can't serve in the spec ops. I would be willing to bet theirs a reason for it, probably psychological. Y'all aren't gonna change it so no sense in getting mad about it.

Some of us have actually, y'know, studied psychology, sociology, anatomy, and anthropology to know there is no reason women should be kept from combat so long as they are aware of the dangers.

So your tellin me that given this situation. You were in a tight squad of four. You know your squadmates better than they know themselves. You have a GF at home. One of you squad is a female. You would openly watch the OPFOR rape, beat and torture her! Then turning to the others in your squad.

That's bullshit and you know it. If a guy so much as laid a hand on my GF I'd beat the shit outta him without thinking. If I were a spec ops operative and had a female squadmate. I wouldnt go outta my way to help her in a firefight. But if she's being tortured. I dunno man. I'd probably flip.

Physically and mentally trained or not the male is almost preprogrammed to defend the female from danger. Not going for the sicko rapists and thugs out there.

But that was an all out war, this isnt. I don't dought that women can't fight aswell as men. I know men can be raped aswell but if you got captured and they were raping a female soldier i rekon most men would probily break. Ever think about telling them to rape the women aswell?

I'ts all fucked up.

its one thing for ppl back home to see their boys coming back dead, they arent ready for their girls to come home in body bags (at least not in huge numbers).

this is mostly about politics. generals worried about the backlash.

A guy can break just by seeing his best mate from high school being tortured too.

You didn't understand my point. You're not going to change it, so get over it.
