AP just reported the Rangers and SEALs will be training women starting in mid ’15 & ’16 respectively.
I hate to tell you “I told you so,” but I did.
I wrote an article about how the military has integrated the sexes. Publicly, the military says “same standards,” but the practice is actually much different. Standards are lowered, requirements removed and equality is declared while ignoring that standards have been lowered. Read the article for several examples.
The gender-based Army PT test is a great example of how the military bureaucracy plays games, and how “packaging” makes standards look the same. Men and women have different scales for each event on the PT test (except for sit-ups), but the scores are also scaled to camouflage the difference.
