lol at the sexism in this thread
As long as the PT standards are the same as men then i wouldnt mind, not too mention that would greatly narrow the pool of qualified women. If a 24 yr old female can do 60 sit-ups, 40 pushups, and run a 15 minute 2 mile then i wouldnt mind ( and i never met a female in the service that could). Shouldnt change the standard just to appease the a-holes making the laws or whoever it is crying that it isnt fair that women can't serve in combat situations. War isnt a game.

1) How does compromising the physical fitness of the Corps increase the chance of a devil dog going KIA? Common sense. What does "thirstiness" have to do with combat? Someone hasn't a clue do they? How about women, who are less physically capable, being winded faster, needing more water. It's a compromise to the squad. You wouldn't know though because something tells me you've never been on a patrol in the likes of Afghanistan.
2) Woman don't have the same standards and never will. Pushups? ********. How about a max of 20 pullups, 100 crunches, and 18 minute 3 mile. That's a perfect PFT in the Corps. I'll laugh the day they make that the perfect score for females because none of them will get it.
every guy I know who saw combat has some sort of problems today. I know one guy who just has nightmares about it all the time, and one of my good buddy's just got done with his alcoholism and PTSD treatment. and like I've said I've asked them about women in combat and they all say no.
my friend told me he saw 2 girls ever fight front line, and he said they were both built like football players and were really ugly.
Don't the Russians have a large amount of females in combat roles?
I always wonder how people can be so negative on women serving in a combat role when I watch old documentaries on the Vietnam war and those little Asians giving us a terrible time in combat.
Physical standards should be the same and if that weeds out 95% then so be it. Either that or we can do a test study and have a unit made up of all women and see how they do in combat.

Stay in the kitchen
Now you have the dykes of the world wanting to fight wars and even though they actually are less capable, they'll probably win and compromise the strength of are marine infantry units. It's sad to see politicians try to make some sort of equality point by pulling this bull ****.
