To war with condom, Israeli style?
Came across this too quite by accident. Caracal Israeli mixed-gender combat units seen by Israeli combat arms officers as not so combat effective. For a reason that always has been the concern of senior military officials when considering the formation of such units [mixed-gender].
"his [Baransky] opposition to mixed units does not stem only from

not healthy to mix the genders [in combat units]. He said that in internal IDF
investigations of the mixed units efficacy, it became apparent
that they performed at lower standards than all men units. Even
worse, wherever they were stationed 'contraceptives ran out in the
space of half a day' at the base canteen, hardly a situation the
IDF can allow in its combat units on base".- - Israeli Colonel Baransky.
