Why don't they just create a battalion of women, transgender, as well as homosexual/lesbian soldiers and see what they can do? They might do a great job.

Some things are obvious. Men are larger and stronger than women so yes. They can carry heavier loads. They can probably carry a 200 pound man out of harm's way, but can female mechanics in aircraft, for example, squeeze into smaller spaces? Lead patrols? Work as a gunner? Secure valuable intelligence by speaking to Afghan women who won't speak to men? Work undercover?

There are plenty of jobs in the military, including combat units: snipers, drive tanks, fire mortars, lead, strategize. Women can most certainly do well in those positions.
