I am not against allowing women to serve with men (as long as they are capable, same standards, etc), but I am against coercing women into roles meant for men. If women choose to fulfill a masculine role, so be it. But I no more want to see women forced into service, then I do men forced into childbearing or stay-at-home parenting. I believe men are different then women, and homogenization of gender for sake of equality is silly.
But I am open to being proven wrong. I do not hold this opinion strongly.
