    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    The few the proud the unable to do a pull-up

    The marines are considering reducing the requirement of 3 whole pull-ups for women since over half of their female recruits can't fucking do 3 god damn pull-ups. For fucks sake it's only 3.

    You are now a misogynist. That's what I hear when I say Men should make more money than women under the current set up in Tennis. Now, I agreed they needed to get paid equal relative to men in their current set up. Right now, they actually make more.

    Fortunately, by the time they become the colonial marines, pull-ups, chin-ups and so on will be back. We'll get to watch Vasquez all over again...

    Surely my beloved Marine Corps will not lower the standard. If a woman can't work her way up to the bare minimum three pullups through her own hard work, wash her out or keep her out of front line combat duty.

    Equal rights baby.

    Congratulations, this is lower than the requirement to go for selection for a pay clerk or storeman in the British army when I served.

    According to the article it's the same amount. You get a score based on how many above that number you can do, and this appears to gauge (in part) for which jobs you are (un)qualified.
