Women Can't Do Pull-Ups...

Marines Delay Female Fitness Plan AFter Half Fail Pull-Up Test

"More than half of female Marines in boot camp can't do three pull-ups, the minimum standard that was supposed to take effect…part of the process of equalizing physical standards to integrate women into combat jobs."

"…The Marines had hoped to institute the pull-ups on the belief that pull-ups require the muscular strength necessary to perform common military tasks such as scaling a wall, climbing up a rope or lifting and carrying heavy munitions."

If I were in-charge, after they did their pull-ups, they would have to….scale a wall, climb a rope, and carry heavy munitions.  I am against women in combat, but that is what our "leaders" have chosen.  Okay then, they have to pass the same test, which is what the Marines are trying to do.

I once took a physical fitness test for a large police department with over 1,000 others.  Numerous female applicants could not drag a body 10 yards, or scale a 6" wall.  I remember clearly that they got a PASS and were told, "we can teach you how to do that."

Yeah right, I thought...

[Warning: Female Anatomy Discussed]

Well, we all know that woman can't shoot…

Okay, whatever...

1. Liberals LOVE statistics. Until the statistics state: Women do not perform as well as men in physical activities. i.e. pull ups. Children growing up in a lesbian or gay household have far more mental problems than children brought up in (even) a single mom home. etc.
2. Garrett (former active marine from our church [ I say former ACTIVE because once a marine always a marine]) said that women learn to shoot quicker than men because men get caught up in the adrenaline and "coolness" of the moment and women can focus on it better. (see I'm not sexist)
3. The Glock is the best to thing to happen to handguns and firearms in general.
Good post Uncle.

There are jobs that men do better and there are jobs that women do better. Assuming that the world is homogeneous is always dangerous. I'm sure that there is a "women's auxiliary corps" that could be set up as a Tier 4 combat unit to satisfy the lesbians who want to wear camo and web gear.
