I am not sure. I think if a woman really wanted to be a Navy SEAL she'd have to train very hard--but personally, I don't see why a woman cannot be one.
You would have to look at the SEAL database and see if there are options for women there.

Some have tried but can't pass the physical part of the tests. I don't believe either that the tests should have lower physical standards for women. The job doesn't get any easier because you are a woman.

As stated by a gentleman before, there are physical boundaries that hender women from joining. The standards are not set unfairly, it is just mission necessary. If you are deployed for an extended period of time women would not be able to take care of their necessary hygiene. This is why women can't be in special forces. And to be truthfully honest, I don't think men could handle women being in those environment (hence all the macho comments). Women are strong. I was in a combat communications so some of our training did require us to pick up and carry guys in the fireman's carry, 60 lbs ruck in full battle and etc. But I'm like 5'10 185lbs - the average women is about 5'6 120lbs. So the physical requirements for seals are extensively more difficult. I wouldn't take it personally against women if I were you. When you are at war you don't have time to worry about equal rights you need to get the job done and whoever fits the requirements should be the ones to do it. Most guys can't pass the physical part either (including the one's who stated that women are weak)

I just read a few of these answers. Ewww, please. Could some of you be more offensive, and you know who you are.

1. No they can not.
2. GI Jane was fiction
3. As a female I don't think we belong there for several reasons(none of which are that women are not strong enough, smart enough, ect.)

women should not serve in infantry positions
1. Men and Women in close quarters form relationships.Those relationships cause problems with in a unit.
2. There are some distinct biological reason for a female not to go over a week without bathing. Risk of serious infection. The female urethra is 2-3 inches, Males hopefully at least 7. I'm wondering about this crowd though. (Where the pee comes from)

BTW
Women are allowed to fly attack helicopters. (Apache) They have been able to do that since 1994-95. You have to attend SEARS school. Which is tough as ****. That would scare me.

The Navy doesn't allow them to. It's not personal, but a lot women soldiers don't have the necessary physical strength. A LOT of men don't have it either, men that consider themselves in very good shape. The SEALs take only those that can handle it, and a lot of people can't.

Quite simply, women are not physically capable of completing the training regimen that Navy SEALs must go through. It does not matter if they ever allow women to train for combat, a woman will never be able to complete SEAL training.

In general, it is a horrible idea to mix genders in a combat unit. Romances and chivalric feelings would greatly increase the chances of disaster.

The Navy SEALs are a combat unit. Congress has yet to enact legislation that permits women to serve in a combat arms unit. Under current US code, women can be on combat vessels and in areas of combat action. However, under the law women can technically train in a combat unit, serve in a combat unit, but not engage in hostile action in an area of operations, *but* a woman can be in an area where fighting is taking place but cannot bear arms in a combat situation. A key example would be female nurses. They can be in the rear are of a combat action and could be caught in combat action but they cannot technically defend themselves or engage in offensive action.

Until the laws change, which might happen soon, women cannot engage in offensive action in a combat zone; hence, women can't be Navy SEALs.

No, they can't. I went through BRC (Basic Reconnasiance Course) at Coronodo Island, the same training that the SEAL's Go through except they call it BUDS (Basic Underwater Demolitions School).

Women have genetic factors (Vagina) that would keep them from being able to be on deployment in a field setting for extended periods of time. Also, the argument comes up that "If I was shot in combat and needed to be dragged out by someone, is a 100lb woman going to be able to drag my 250lb a** outta there?" It's a risk not worth taking and no person in combat situation wants to encounter this dillemma.

yes, by law, women cannot be SEALs. There are strong women and seriously physically fit women, but it still stands that men have a natural strength advantage, so the most elite of women will still not quite meet the standards of the most elite men. SEALs are also subjected to some serious serious stuff, and perform missions that carry a high likelihood of injury or capture and torture. The US Government is fairly liberalized in terms of giving women opportuinities in areas where they have traditionally been excluded, but not the SEALs. 99.99% of MEN aren't man enough to be a SEAL... so it kind of stands to reason.

Why aren't there women on football teams? Or even women in NBA basketball teams, playing alongside Shaq and Kobe? Actually, none of the major professional sports leagues have mixed gender teams. Even in basketball, the genders are kept separate. There are great women boxers, but could you picture the woman's boxing champion going up against Mike Tyson? Tekitha Williams is a great basketball player, but are you gonna put her against Jordan? Chyna Doll against Triple H? Not happenin... sorry. Same with the SEALs. They require the maximum output of human strength and endurance, and whether it's PC to say it or not, it is an indesputable fact that men have a clear genetic upper hand in those areas.

A serious answer is that women are not allowed in Combat roles in the armed services (no female infantry, armor, Special Forces, etc...) The reasons are many but to cover a few:

1) ON AVERAGE women do not score as well on physical fitness tests. In the army the Physical fitness test (APFT) has diffrent scales for male and female.(yes, there are many who will do better than me on the male scale, but they are the exception not the rule)

2) This one isn't the women's fault but until society decides to change it still has to be taken into account: Men will take more risks to save a woman in trouble than a man. This can cause the men around a female soldier to take stupid risks. Sorry we are socially (and I'd almost argue biologically) programed to save women and children.

3) Also modesty and hygeen. Men and women still wish seprate showers and latrines, In field conditions it can be hard if not difficult to provide.

4) Sexual. With all the tensions on a combat unit do you really wish to add sexual tension? It will happen, it will cause problems.

Hope this helps.
