Women and men BOTH have respective physical advantages and disadvantages in modern infantry warfare. Dismissing one sex because they can't do as many pushups while ignoring the fact that they are generally faster and have better fine motor coordination when handling weapons is short-sighted, at best.

Have you ever been in a position where you've had to use sheer strength to save someone from harm? Do you know what that's like?
