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 requirements.

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.
