This is the point where I become very, very angry at the idiots who are trying to force these things through.
It does not help the women, who feel the bad vibes, it does not help the men, for reasons stated many times, it can only cause conflict and distress and lower morale, it is a logistical nightmare. And the Israelis do NOT do it, they do something oblique.
In January 2013, the Department of Defense announced it was removing the combat exclusion ban that kept women out of infantry units and special operations forces like Navy SEALs and Army Green Berets.
Where do we stand nearly four years later?
Former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta argued, “If members of our military can meet the qualifications for a job — and let me be clear, we are not reducing qualifications — then they should have the right to serve.”
For a start, look who this Richard Cranium is:
He’s a pollie, probably never held a gun, he is non-forces. He is political, a leftist, one of the globalist left. He has not an effing clue. Yet he has the power to enforce. This is the injustice of society and politics.
He says “if” members can meet the standards. why is there even an “if”? They cannot. You want to see evidence of this?
Why don’t you just listen to this girl, you Richard Cranium? Ok, if that’s not enough, how about this:
The Marines were the only service to seek the combat exclusion after a $36 million exhaustive study on infantry coed units conclusively determined that mixed male and female infantry squads performed at a vastly inferior level to their all-male squad counterparts in scores of battlefield exercises. Despite expressed reservations, the Marine Corps leadership took their civilian superiors at their word that standards would not be changed and took the challenge head-on, opening both their enlisted and officer infantry schools.
In the first half of 2016, six out of seven women failed the basic combat physical fitness test, which included a minimum three pull-ups, a three-mile timed run and other combat tasks. The 85.7 percent failure rate of female Marines compares to 2.7 percent (40 out of 1,500) of their male counterparts failing to pass the basic screening. The female Marine officer track record at the USMC Infantry Officers Course is 0 for 31 — no woman has lasted more than two weeks of the 12-week training. The majority of women were not able to complete the day one combat endurance test, and none were able to pass the second week timed rucksack march.
What this Richard and all he influenced in the top brass have done is a crime against nature and a crime against the United States, because they have undermined the armed forces.
Here is a male soldier:
… and here is a female:
Notice any differences? Differences in hardness, in ability to run, in the whole mind inside his skull and the mind inside her skull? The hormonal differences?
Which would only confirm the data coming out. After that, there is the issue which is specifically a male issue, not a female and females say the man “just has to get over it”, as in deny his biology.
Soldiers have a greater than ordinary level of testosterone driven desire to protect. While they go off to war with the other men and just get the job done, coming home to the women, it is stress enough but the moment a female is introduced into it, all sorts of instincts and stresses start over and above.
For a start, a man can emote with another man about his fear, his worries, there’s no shame. Introduce a female and he is now sheepish about how he appears before her. It’s an added and unnecessary stress. Then there is this:
I’m not suggesting from that pic that females aren’t up to it mentally – there are some quite hard-nosed females but that was a pic which was available. What I am saying is that soft feelings enter it, male => female and though the female is all about “I’m every bit as good as the boys, I’m hard”, the boys do NOT like it and that’s not what they’re about in the field – that’s for the leftists, feminists and pollies to BS on about.
The male is an interesting creature. More often than not, this wave of protective emotion towards a female is related to her looks:
If you are male, you know exactly what I’m saying here – does it not tug at you inside, you couldn’t bear anything to happen to them, you want the one you’re keen on out of that zone, safe and sound. If you are female reading this, probably apoplectic by now, you simply cannot understand how males feel over this.
And even if you can, you’re not interested. I have every right etc. etc. etc.
The global PTB are evil muvvers – they knew perfectly well that forcing women over their capacity into mixed units was going to produce all this. I’ve always said yes, let them have their own units who can operate in areas more suited. But not nobbling your prime fighting men.
We have every reason, at home, to expect that our units over there are at their peak. If you look at that article again, that is NOT at their peak, for whatever reason.
The linked article, by the way, was not written by a journo:
