    I have no problem with this if they are able to maintain the same physical fitness standards as their male counterparts.

    Perhaps. I don't have an issue with women in traditionally-male roles, but we can not allow it to happen if it means lowering the standards that made those roles exclusionary to begin with.

    The attrition rates are going to be crazy of they keep the same standards. The last study showed females double the male rates of lower body injuries in infantry training and they weren't humping up the side of mountains.

    Are the recruits predominantly raised going to all-boys schools, thereby causing them not to understand how to respectfully interact with females? I'm confused.

    All of the women will fail, and then loads of them will claim rape.

    Seems like a legit strategy to keep a strong military to protect the nation.

    I just can't wait until some of them get to 29 Palms. Pendleton is bad enough but at least you are not humping up hills in 120 degree weather.

    Yes this oughta quash sexism. When all of the women fail they can quit arguing that they are physically equal to men.

    Lets load up the tip of the spear with a bunch of women. Then when war is looming they can all get pregnant and avoid their duty to protect this great nation.

    Loads of female soldiers mysteriously get knocked up before deployment. It makes us safer.

    I mean, it's not like it's driving a fork lift or a being a doctor, or some other traditional male job where there's no reason to believe a woman would be less qualified because she's a woman. But I don't see any reason to lax the fitness standard of any branch of military. In this case, it's legitimate job requirements that will likely keep a lot of women out, not the fact that they're women. If they can pass the physical standards then whatever. As long as the effectiveness of the military isn't jeopardized, then fine.

    The Marines probably wouldn't take me because I have a bum eye. I wouldn't expect them to take me in either because it's not fair that I have a bum eye. I'd just be SOL unless a major military conflict broke out. And even then they'd probably just stick me in the Army with a spoon.

    I agree but most would be surprised on how many women dont need standards to be lowered

    History has shown women can easily tough it out on the battlefield like allot of men can.

    What kind of healthy society pacifies half of their population and survives?

    None.

    Luckily, infantry and conventional forces in general are not needed to protect the USA anymore. So they can play with it.
