Military PFT tests are designed to measure overal fitness and not ability to do a job. Since men and women are physically different, what an average fit male and female can do is different. That is why the standards are different for men and women, just as the standards change as you get older, and for the same reason.
    i agree that the pft was originally to test fitness,but the army is changing it because it has no relevance to actual combat fitness,the new tests are designed to make sure everyone is combat ready.

    They definitely should not be allowed to serve on Navy Combatants. They can't handle the physical requirements like carrying a P250 or P500 submersible pump on a DC party........They get pregnant to often and have to leave the ship without a replacement . The average age of a sailor on a navy combatant is 19 years.....The juices are running and men and women get together and have sex. Life aboard a Navy Combatant is dangerous and there are enough problems already with out adding women to the mix....You want to put them on hospital ships or those luxury liners air craft carriers fine, but not on cruisers destroyers and submarines........


    I wonder how many of you libs who voted yes have ever even been near a combat situation.

    Which I think is a good move. I was in the navy, so a standard PFT was about all that is needed. AIr Force just has to measure a person's abiulity to get out of bed in the morning. Army and Marines however, I could see job based or simply combat based PT tests, which would have to be the same for both genders.

    agreed on that,i still think its stupid that army females have super low standards but marine females have higher standards than army men.if a women can meet marine standards then they can meet army combat standards.

    if the 100 pound woman can carry the full combat load plus supplies and a loaded 249 it wouldnt matter.

    LOL this is called stacking the deck for two reasons.

    1.) its very possible the women could beat the man
    2.) wonder why you described a man of ABOVE average size and a women BELOW average size?

    are you ever honesty in your posts?

    I couldnt pick just based on physically description.

    Why couldn't she just use a hummer or dolly to carry heavy stuff like other modern humans?
