Should Marine Corps Lower Standards for Women?


A IOC diploma is a must to earn the designation of infantry officer. Of 29 women who tried, none graduated; only four made it through the first day’s combat endurance test.

The pressure is on from the White House's "politically correct" agenda.

The military now may lower standards to make sure they have more women serving.

They should not. Not at all.

You can argue if women should be in the military, or if women are physically equal to men. It is true that men have more muscle mass than women, in general. There are many statistics to throw around. The left always yells, "equality!"
The real issue should be "equal opportunity."

If a woman wants to join the military, God bless. If anyone wants to join the military, God bless!

Here's the thing, this is national defense. The best of the best defend and fight for the United States of America everyday, and we cannot lower the standards just to be "politically correct" and to appease feminists. If you want to join the military, pass the tests! I don't care if you're a man or woman, blue or black, pass the test! It's a matter of skill and experience, not sex.
