Women Cannot Win in Sports or Combat?

Women Cannot Win in Sports or Combat? January 25, 2019

Larry Solomon of Biblical Gender Roles is at it again. Rather than debated him point by point by point on his screed of why he thinks women do not belong in combat I’m just going to quote him. Form your own conclusions According to Larry women cannot win in sports or combat against men.

But.. Larry.. you do not need increased muscle mass or testosterone to pull a trigger on a weapon and be effective. Or to wield a wrench to fix a tank, or in many of the specialized MOS that make up the many roles needed to be filled in combat.  Take a look at the Israeli military if you want to see women in equal roles with men, including combat. They made the change in 2001 and it have not negatively affected the mission of the army.

Testosterone and muscles play far less of a role in the military now than at any other time. It’s not all brute strength, running with a gun and the ability to pee outside. The only issues women really face in the military is the same one impacting all of us, the threat of sexual abuse.

The great irony here is that it’s very unlikely Larry has ever served in the military in any capacity. I doubt his sons have either, yet he’s having a strong opinion about who does and does not belong.
