Just like marriage equality, giving women equality in the military means treating them unequally.
Even if you could justify the headaches regarding personal quarters and barracks, etc, putting women in combat in the name of equality still would make no sense. We know this because we are trying to do it and it is making no sense.
The Libertarian Republic reports, “Females at Ranger School Get Third Try.”
Three of the eight women who signed up for Ranger School at Fort Benning two months ago are preparing to retake the Darby Phase of the assessment for the third time, Army Times reports.
On the first attempt, all eight women failed Darby and joined 101 other male students in retaking the phase. When the women failed Darby for a second time, the Army gave them the option to start the entire course over from day one.
Five women dropped out, and three stayed. Darby takes around two weeks, and any personnel who pass will move on to Camp Merrill for the mountain phase. There, students have to survive mountaineering training for four days while under enormous mental stress. The last part of the course ends up at Camp Rudder in Florida, where students learn to face reptiles and discern the difference between types of snakes. They also learn stream crossing and small boat operations.
It seems that this “test” to find out if women can pass the same test that male rangers must take, is really turning into an all-out effort to integrate the Rangers.
Well, I’m surprised they are struggling so hard. All they have to do to produce a woman Ranger is recruit a transgender woman into the program. Just open up the military to transgenders and then it will be possible to find a “woman” who passes the tests and is qualified to be a Ranger. We have already established that transgender women, for some mysterious reason, seem to be much stronger than non-transgender women.
Problem solved, right?
