Or another side:

So what do you think? I think women should be able to do whatever it is they are qualified for.

I think I side along with Melissa Clouthier, she brings up some very valid points about abuse in the military against women and counting on the soldiers you are with. I don't think this is an area that you want to mix gender roles.
