I hope no one gets the idea that Im against women in the military...furthest thing from it...Even with the complications of the "Queen of the Desert" syndrome which EVERY FOL faces, they still pretty much do their job.
The standards are tough to deal with the stresses of combat. As the testimony I posted from West Point says, realistically it will lead to reduced standards for females and eventually men as happened at West Point.

Sometimes, an agency will have a broad standard required of all employees that, when evaluated, isn't realistic. Perhaps it's too low, perhaps it's too high. I have ZERO PROBLEMS with men and women using the same standards, based upon the job.
