    I just want to know who is doing the reevaluating.

    I was more or less building off what you said, on how people can be closed minded when it comes to reaching a goal. But I usually assume the best of the best at something didn't get that way by being creatures of habit.

    I'm asking everyone to do it.

The military is not at all likely to reduce the current male standards or to eject all of the females that cannot meet them (90%+). What do you think is going on?
    Whose discussion? Not mine.

    The military, with proper input form the various effected parties. A complete rethinking, focused on what standards matter.

    Well, repetition can be a good think, but not reevaluating isn't. I believe the best of the best question their assumptions regularly.

    Do these "effected parties" include or dis-include parties that have absolutely no background in military policy IE, feminist groups?

    You keep giving us this Confucius crap. You want the military to invest billions of dollars in lighter gear so that a handfull of people can get in on the action, and we don't even get to use it? That's BS. There are chicks who can make the standards. I dare say that any chick really committed can do it, she just better get ready before basic.

    Care to share a source for your assertion of what is going on? That may be your wish, but I have seen nothing of the sort actually proposed.

    Not sure I have any Confucius crap, but every organization rethinks everything they regularly. And while I've made no recommendations on what might change, most of what you list will change in one way or another regardless of whether women are there or not.
