    I hope that if I am ever unconscious in a building, a female firefighter does not find me or anyone else over 150lbs.
    I don't agree with reduced standards - one job, one standard.

    How did that frail 105 lb woman pass the physical test?

    What test?

    No, I'll blame the stupid feminazis for deliberately pretending they didn't know they didn't define what the word "equal" meant in the law.

    I'm not going to blame the employer who's stuck with a lawsuit if he doesn't pay the flagwaving broad on the road crew the same as the man up to his waist in **** digging out the clog in the ditch, and faced with a lawsuit if he gives the broad a shovel and tells her to dig or get out.

    I'll blame the source of the problem, the lawyers, the politicians, and the truly stupid people who think it's their business to set the wages employers must pay.

    They use double standards, or they reduce the standards so unqualified males can also pass.

    Either way, the standards are lowered to satisfy not job completion requirements but job quotas, at the expense of performance.

    Re: Navy will soon let women serve on subs

    If there are certain women (even a small percentage) who are physically and mentally capable of performing the same kinds of tasks on a submarine as men, I hardly see what the big deal is. This isn't really a PC issue to me (though it would be if it were about letting any woman regardless of their physical capabilities to serve on a sub). This is an issue of blatant sexism if you are going to say across the board that no women at all are capable of serving on a submarine. Why is it such a big deal to allow this small percentage of women to serve on a sub?

    Agree or not they are in place, and will continue to be in place. Females on the majority cannot preform even close to the levels of the average male. The only way for it to work (or so the politically correct crowed think) is to reduce the standards. To use their terminology "to make it fair."

    I agree with you to a point. If females had to pass within the same standards as men, I would not be as concerned about it. I mite even support it, but this will never happen.

    If you give an inch, people will take a mile, period. Next thing you know just like every other area the standards will be reduced to allow more women participate. This is what I see as the problem.
