We agree equal rights, equal responsibility applies. Women can have the same opportunities but will never become a large part of our actual fighting force. Only a few women will ever be able to keep up with the men in a combat situation and should not be placed in those situations unless they can qualify just like men do. The problem we will have is that the standards will be lowered for women and then they will be killed in higher numbers than men in a conflict. Then the true reality will appear, that no one really wanted them in battle in the first place. Be careful what you wish for because you're probably going to get it. Just like Affirmative Action, lowering standards only hurts the class it was meant to help!
