    After years on the police department watching the female qualifications dropped to allow more of them because of pressure from the mayors office. What the hell do I know?

    No it's not discrimination. I am not advocating keeping females out of anything. Have you actually read anything I posted? I am advocating they be held to the same requirements as men, but I am also admitting THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN.

    Your fantasy scenario will never happen.

    One standard. Let the women try. If any of them can do it, let those women in.

    What's so hard about that?
    Please point out one case where this has happened, just one? I have pointed out a few where it has not. So this should be easy, right?

    So? Don't cave to the pressure. Duh.

    What part of "this is not going to happen" are you not AGAIN understanding?
    Yeah, there's always someone around to say that.

    No it's not discrimination. I am not advocating keeping females out of anything. Have you actually read anything I posted? I am advocating they be held to the same requirements as men, but I am also admitting THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN.
    So you think women should be allowed in the service?

    Sorry, I must have mixed you up with someone else on this thread.

    Your fantasy scenario will never happen.
    Yeah, right, it's a big fantasy scenario.

    Not many.

    Aircrews are supposed to given the opportunity to get 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep before a flight, and cannot drink alcohol within the 12 hours prior to take-off.

    Yes and she got to that point by the reduced standards for females. So what?

    It doesn't matter whether it has happened yet. If there is a woman out there who can do it, she should get the chance to prove she can.

    Apparently the standards for men weren't much of a measure of what it takes to be a soldier, that's what. Maybe they should be reduced for everyone.

    In other words you can't.

    Go figure.
