    I sometimes wonder if this sort of thing isn't a sneaky attempt, by some nebulous force at work at the Pentagon, to "prove" that women make inferior soldiers to men by the expedient of permitting women inferior to men to be soldiers. If it is, I particularly like the fact that feminists will have a hard time getting taken seriously if they bitch about it.

    upper body strength is significantly lower in women. This is not shocking news, maybe they don't belong in the marines. I think they definitely have their place in armed forces, i just don't think they should be integrated into infantry forces, there are enough jobs that require intelligentsia and skills that don't relay heavily on upper body strength. If they do insist on trying out for infantry than by all means give them the exact test.

    The women who recently passed infantry training did meet the same requirements.

    It's admirable to see so many ladies wanting to join the Marines, but this is just like when Gloria Alred sued to have the NY firefighter physical requirements lowered for women. It puts people at risk.

    The pullups requirements are there for a good reason.

    The USMC is fine with vaginas. Pussies will get Marines killed.

    The lady here is a USMC Combat Engineer. Just a guess, but I'm sure she can beat 3.

    Might as well let them in with no pullups. The difference in physical abilities is so glaring already it doesn't even matter. Fortunately I didn't have to deal with women in the infantry when I was in. But it was always hilarious to watch an entire Company doing PT when there were women. On a Company run you'll always have a support vehicle following in case anyone falls out. Usually, that would be a Humvee. If it was a unit that included women the support vehicle would be a 5 ton truck and it would be slam full of women half way through the run.

    And trust me, you've never seen anything more embarrassing than a Marine in maternity cammies. Yes, maternity cammies are a thing.

    Not embarrassing if you're the fetus.

    Gives "born to kill," a whole new meaning.

    I'll bet female Viet Cong intelligence officers could do more than 3 pullups.

    My daughter is obsessed in doing proper pull ups and she's only 12.

    Come on, if they take out the pull ups they'll have to change "The Few, The Proud", to "The many, the pandered to."

    My best friend used to work as a paramedic. In her training, the PT was floor hockey, since the guys were already in good shape. She asked if she could be excused from that so that she could hit the gym and do squats instead.

    I don't care about the gender of the soldier, cop, or paramedic who saves my ass; all I want is for them to be able to do the job.
