This will end badly:

CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. — Three enlisted female Marines are reporting to a ground combat unit in North Carolina and are among the first women in the service to do so.

1st Lt. John McCombs, a Marine Corps spokesman with the Second Marine Expeditionary Force at Camp Lejeune, says the three report Thursday to the 1st Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment. McCombs says the unit has three female officers that will assist them.

Of course I’m going to talk about this. It’s well known that I’m SOFREP’s resident misogynist backer of high military standards. I have been writing on this subject for a long time now, and made my position pretty clear. In a vacuum, I would support females in a combat MOS, but since I know the folly of man and how the military actually works, I can’t support it. In other words, although it’s all well and good to talk about standards not changing, and cutting loose those who can’t hack it, we all know perfectly well that ambitious officers know exactly what is expected from the social justice warrior wing of the Pentagon, and will deliver no matter performance or detriment to unit cohesion. That’s why I can’t get on board with the “at least let them try” crowd. Because as soon as you open the door, the activist will pressure the military to get people THROUGH the door. And then keep it open, regardless of outcome.
