Which is just as valid a reason based on what happens when men fight alongside women in combat. Not to mention more rapes and sexual assaults and unwanted pregnancies or wanted pregnancies as a way to get out of serving in a war.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
