    The board notes you never addressed the issue. Calling a thread a failure is NOT a rebuttal. Thanks for admitting you have no argument.

    Firemen are trained to carry people out of a burning home. Firewomen are told to grab them by the ankles and drag them out!! Right thru all the stuff burning on the floor and god forbid if the person is on the second floor and has to be dragged down the stairs with their head hitting every step.

    Ceteris paribus, if there were/are not enough male applicants, would you object (personally) if a female firefighter saved your life in this manner? Or would you rather die, out of principle?

    Is there a problem with a shortage of males attempting to become firemen in New York?
    Worth noting, Democrats: President Trump will have a Pen and a Phone. #Precedent.

    HAHA. What a silly argument. So this incompetent woman should simply be GIVEN a passing grade because other women legitimately passed?? Can you think at all?

    I don't know, I simply asked a hypothetical and want to gauge the person's degree of principles.

    Being dragged out of a burning building through whatever is burning in the path? Ummm..yes. Who the **** wants to be dragged through fire?

    I don't think you're going to get many folks arguing in favor of not being saved v being saved in such a manner that you are injured. However, if you can be saved in such a manner that you are not injured, why wouldn't you choose that?


    If there is a shortage of firefighters, I can understand bringing in people who don't meet the full qualifications. In many situations some help is better than no help at all. But if there is no shortage of those who can pass the physical requirements who are ready and willing, why would we lower the standards or let in those who can't pass them?

    People who don't want to lay still and be consumed by even more fire?

    And who said there aren't enough male applicants.? Liberals are making stuff up again.
