Its not even funny, the Marine Corps has told congress, mixed gender infantry units is a bad idea, the facts prove its a bad idea, however, we still have a congress (who by the way are less than a 5% veteran congress) say its still a good idea. Again, you have some making the decisions on something they know nothing about. You want "equality"? You want women to me required to serve in the infantry? Then you better not complain when female fatalities skyrocket the next time they go to war with men in the infantry. Because they will. Those that have passed the Ranger school and almost passed the Marine Corps Infantry school, were set on it in their heart, did everything they could to pass, were determined. What happens if congress mandates females in the infantry which will include some not so determined females in battle? You can draw the conclusion, and it will include allot of body bags. Time for a C-Gar

All-male squads, teams and crews and gender-integrated squads, teams, and crews had a noticeable difference in their performance of the basic combat tasks of negotiating obstacles and evacuating casualties. For example, when negotiating the wall obstacle, male Marines threw their packs to the top of the wall, whereas female Marines required regular assistance in getting their packs to the top. During casualty evacuation assessments, there were notable differences in execution times between all-male and gender-integrated groups, except in the case where teams conducted a casualty evacuation as a one-Marine fireman’s carry of another (in which case it was most often a male Marine who “evacuated” the casualty)

The report also says that female Marines had higher rates of injury throughout the experiment. Read more here
