I never thought that I would write a post like this, but this is getting absolutely ridiculous and I just can’t help myself.

With the recent reports coming out of Washington that women will be trained as Army Rangers and Navy Seals as early as 2016, there are valid and ridiculous views being stated all over social media networks.

There have been write-ups on virtually every aspect of why or why not women should be allowed in special operations, let alone infantry units. I’m not here to argue every conceivable point and say ‘this or that’ are the reasons women should stay where they are in the military.

This is a political game, nothing more and nothing less. Women want forward mobility. Okay, I get that, but in all reality do you really want to serve with a group of men that believe you were handed a free pass without having to pass the same standards? The truth is that, whether or not the standards remain the same, there will always be those who believe that you don’t deserve to be there. Why would you want to serve in a place where you are looked down upon? There may be an explanation for this and I would love to hear a well thought out argument.
