Should women be allowed to serve in equal combat roles in armed forces?

"Oh and as for woman being more susceptible to Rape in the military. All I can say is men you need to learn a little bit of self control there."
Indeed, women are more susceptible to rape. It is wrong, but unfortunately, men will NOT learn self control. Therefore, being in the military increases risk of rape for a woman.
I would like to call your attention to the fact that traditionally, in almost every country, males are the ones going off to war. The allowance of women to join the military may disrupt the usual social patterns of our society.
I would also like to point out that on a biological level, men are better prepared for combat. Men have thicker skin, faster muscle growth and wounds heal faster. Take a look at nature, males are always the ones fighting each other. Whether it is for territory or mates, males are always the ones engaging in combat. (Except for very rare exceptions that I may not be aware of).
1 in 10 women get pregnant while serving in the military. Sex should be the last thing on soldier's minds.
If you don't believe me, read some articles written by experienced female veterans.
Please read this article. It is written by a female Marine captain.
As well as this:
They are simple, truthful articles written by proud women.
Every country that has experimented with women in combat has abandoned the idea. Also, it has been scientifically proven that ON AVERAGE, women have 60% the physical strength of men. Don't forget simple, European and American culture. No one respects a man who lets his woman do the fighting for him.

Reasons for voting decision: Con had the better-structured argument. But the argument itself was faulty in more ways than one. I would actually like to debate Con myself for a more in depth discussion about this topic.
