    It is important to remember that increased technology in warfare means that a certain level of physical fitness that was needed in the past may not be needed today.

    On top of that, you also need to compare the gains to a military from having more soldiers (women) with any loss of efficiency... which may or may not exist.

    If this is about making the military stronger, then it isn't about opinion, its about whatever studies have been done.
    Of course, talk to any man in the army they will tell you whether its obstacle courses or other physical requirements they are different.........

    Even in civilian life they are different and easier for women.......Why in golf do women tee off much closer to the pin or hole then men? Its easy its because men are stronger and can hit the ball farther.........

    Why can't women beat men in any sport that requires strength....Its the same thing..

    Anyone who thinks women can compete in any situation with a man where physical strength is involved is kidding theirselves......

    Of course. It wouldn't be hard at all for three people to load 500lbs. If that's all that's required, then wtf are these guys bitching about?
    All naval personnel are required to pass a physical fitness test every 6 months. The standards vary by age and gender. However, this test is not intended to measure the ability to do any job, only to measure general physical fitness, which is why the different standards. At my age, I could walk the run portion and pass.

    Well then, your issue is with the 'suits' who are apparently working very hard to weaken the military by lowering standards of performance. Stop bitching about women, and start bitching about the ****tards who are actually causing the damn problem.


    Favortism? WTF? Making a sexist comment about how no women are courageous is 'showing favoritism to women'?
    To be fair, rivrrat, there ARE probably SOME women who fit his sterotypes.

    Just like there ARE probably SOME women who could take out a navy SEAL, given proper training, etc.

    Of course there are. And there are plenty of men who fit the same stereotypes. He makes blanket statements though, all the ****ing time, and tries to pass them off truths. If you throw a blanket over a group of people, you're bound to catch a few that actually belong under it. That's not the point, though.

    Of course there.

    So you keep saying. Yet, you're so opposed to making the standards equal. Maybe that's why you're so opposed to it... because then you'd be proven wrong. Women WOULD pass the same physical standards, and then what would you have to bitch and moan and make sexist comments about?

    and? This makes them less culpable, how?

    Dude. Are you drunk or something? You made a blatantly sexist comment that blanketed ALL women as ****ing cowards, then tried to say the comment somehow showed favoritism to women. So, can you please explain to me how calling ALL women cowards is showing favoritism to women.

    If you make the standards the same then you will have very few women who can meet them and that is not what the people in charge want.......why can't you understand that?
