The ban on women in combat is set to be lifted today. Is this a good or bad thing? http://mobile.nytimes.com/2013/01/24/us/pentagon-says-it-is-lifting-ban-on-women-in-combat.xml

I personally think that as long as standards aren't lowered it's a great thing... if a woman can pass the same tests as a man, no one should tell her she can't do it.

As a guy that routinely goes out of my way when women are in trouble...I don't see it as a good thing. I see it as a distraction on the battlefield.
