Marine Corps Considers Lowering Standards For Women

The United State Marine Corp is considering lowering its standards for combat jobs so that women can pass.
The Marine Corps recently finished research to see if female officers could successfully complete its Infantry Officer Course. The rigorous IOC course awards a diploma to those who graduate from the program, which is required to earn a combat officer’s designation. Of the 29 women who attempted, none graduated.

While the Corps did not offer particulars on which parts of the course females struggled with, a demanding 25-foot rope climb which officers make with a full backpack is just one example of some demanding upper-body strength tests.

Those who support women serving in combat roles are examining standards to see if there are any they believe to no longer be relevant in today’s battlefield.

Others say that lowering the standards will put men on the frontlines at risk and make the Marine Corps weaker as a whole.
Robert Maginnis, a retired Army officer and author of the book “Deadly Consequences: How Cowards Are Pushing Women Into Combat” stated that it was political correctness driving the policy, not rational analysis.
“The pressure is on the services from the White House’s politically correct crowd vis-a-vis Obama’s Pentagon appointees, who will force the services to accept degraded standards,” said Maginnis.
The military’s top officer, General Martin Dempsey, has put it no uncertain terms that they are actively looking to change standards.

“If we do decide that a particular standard is so high that a woman couldn’t make it, the burden is now on the service to come back and explain to the secretary, why is it that high? Does it really have to be that high?” Dempsey said.

Traditionally, the standards are high because we want to make sure we have capable men defending each other on the frontlines. This is a concept that seems lost on the politically correct crowd who prefers to lower standards in pursuit of equality.
