Are any women members of the Navy Seals?
The Navy currently has 2 years to submit to Congress why women
shouldn't be allowed to serve as SEAL's, but in general, it has
nothing to do with the physical or psychological
The simple fact is that SEAL's typically operate behind enemy
lines, and if captured, a woman would be a higher-value propaganda
hostage for an enemy, if nothing else. Women in Asian and Muslim
societies are already treated as second-class citizens, and to
expect a woman, even if she were a SEAL, to garner respect from
guerrilla forces friendly to us in nations we're trying to support
is just wishful thinking. The U.S. had problems in Saudi Arabia
when we stationed women there during the Gulf War, and nearly
caused a breakdown in relations by them just being there.
The bottom line is that unlike what some in our country might
think, the parts of the world where people aren't that nice to men
are frankly plain hostile to women.
