For whatever reason, the United States Army pushed its limits on fitting in with the “woke” culture by testing men and women on the same fitness test. It has backfired, drastically. “The new Army Combat Fitness Test goes all out on gender equality, leveling the playing field and measuring women on the same scale as their male counterparts” reports The Western Journal. “Of course, this effort to treat men and women as physical equals has only shown how different they actually are.”
According to a military.com report, “early data shows nearly half of female soldiers can’t pass the test and might face being removed from service once it becomes official next year.” Looks like “gender equality” can in fact have dire consequences, such as a devastating removal from service. Is this what feminists and gender rights activists were after? To have females completely ineligible to be in the military because they were set up for failure early on?
“Female soldiers continue to lag male soldier scores in all events” according to a United States Army Forces Command briefing obtained by Military.com. Forty-four percent of women have failed the Army Combat Fitness Test. Only 7 percent of men have failed the same test.
Only 66 female soldiers scored a 500 out of a perfect 600 since October. 31,978 men have achieved that score. The statistics are incredibly telling. “If officially adopted, the uniform standards would prevent women from advancing through the ranks as readily as men, as physical fitness scores are ‘heavily considered’ in promotions, according to Military.com.”
The Army is now considering a return to gender-specific fitness standards. While testifying before a House Appropriations Committee subpanel last month, Army officials offered a potential solution to the dilemma they face: separate scores by gender so that men and women are not compared to each other. Looks like the Army wasted a lot of time in “woke land” to simply revert back to not comparing men and women to each other.
