And you conclude that this particular character flaw of yours is shared by all soldiers and should therefore be used as a reason to ban women from combat? Have you done a survey to confirm this belief?
I've asked quite a few people in the military. Some have my belief, other feel women are just too weak on average, some believe women are a little too emotional. Plus there are other reasons.
Have you tried fighting alongside a woman to see if you would actually behave this way?
I make sure they aren't in the fight if it's just guys, so yes basically, yes.
And what other character flaws of yours should be used as reasons to keep people out of combat? If someone out there was a white supremacist and felt that his morale would suffer if black guys were nearby, would that be a good reason to kick black guys out of the Army?
There aren't that many extreme racists in the military, it's too diversified to have that. If someone believes the way you just said, they are the one's that shouldn't be in combat.
The idea of banning people from the military in order to appease the neuroses of certain individuals seems rather flawed to me.
How long did they wait to save that single female POW. Now, how long have they waited to send in a team only to save a single male POW? When those two times are the same your statement might make sense. Because right now, it seems everone that felt we should go after that single female POW thinks the same way I do. Otherwise they wouldn't have gone after her.
If there is only one God, and he is the top of the chain of command in life, where did he come from?
