U.S. Army’s Genderless Fitness Test Failing as Nearly Half of Females Can’t Pass Test

The Army is pushing its limits on fitting in with the “woke” culture by giving men and women the same fitness test

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.

    This proves biological males are different from biological females. What excuse will they use now?

    As a female Navy vet,I do agree with sex-specific (based on biological sex) physical fitness standards. My concern is active duty or activated Natl. Guard troops. Sane concerns I have for women firefighters and cops.
    Biological women are smaller, with less musculoskeletal strength, and decreased lung capacities as compared to men. If I am wounded on a battlefield, if I am trapped in a burning house, if my police comrades are injured and need help and protection, are you strong enough to carry a larger soldier to safety, to get a survivor out of a burning house, to drag a partner out of harm’s way?
    That is not sexism. That is reality. Can a biological woman be as effective as a biological male? Can she save a life when the conditions requires superior strength? It’s unfair to the team/group if ANY person on it cannot perform the physical acts required.

    I started the Milwaukee Fire Department training academy in July of 1981. Within 2 years standards were relaxed, until women could through the academy. Image that you only had to be better than the best female recruit!? The resulting effect was a fire department less qualified than previous recruit classes! Image how that effected morale and the quality of the force! Fucking shitshow!

Chicago 911 Dispatcher says ‘All Hell Has Broken Loose’ Crime is ‘Nonstop’

The liberal run city of Chicago is in a downward spiral suffocated by crime. Few understand what is happening better than 911 dispatchers who have the impossible task of listening to people suffer through crimes, yet unable to help them due to liberal policies creating a violent crime epidemic and police shortage.

Keith Thornton posted a video to Facebook last week saying Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is “a disgrace.” Thornton took it upon himself to warn citizens about which Chicago police district is unavailable due to the staffing shortages.

In an interview with Fox & Friends Thornton said that “all hell has broken loose” in Chicago while local officials have failed to act. “It’s been shenanigans, and it’s just nonstop, day after day. It doesn’t matter if it’s morning time, evening time, whatever –at all hours of the day, there is a massive amount of crime taking place within the city of Chicago.”

“When I’m getting text messages from officers telling me that they’re scared and afraid for their safety because they’re working by themselves, and then the beat next to them would normally back them up, they’re not even there because the cars are down. That’s a problem. It’s a safety concern” Thornton said in an interview with Chicago’s WLS-TV.

Chicago Police Department data shows homicides, shootings, thefts and criminal sexual assaults are all up drastically compared to last year. Lightfoot has not only been a proponent of defunding the police, she also behaved viciously towards law enforcement.

After Chicago Police Officer Ella French was killed during a routine traffic stop, Lightfoot blamed “guns and the violence they bring” for her death. When Lightfoot visited French’s partner who was wounded and fighting for his life at the time at the hospital, dozens of officers at the hospital turned their back on the mayor.

It’s Raining Lawsuits on Jussie Smollett; City of Chicago and Nigerian Brothers Suing Actor

The City of Chicago has confirmed it will be suing disgraced actor Jussie Smollett. The lawsuit will seek the $130,106.15 “to cover an overtime tab racked up by dozens of officers tasked with investigating Smollett’s claims that he was the victim of an attack”, reports Daily Mail UK.

According to the legal filing, the Chicago Department came to the conclusion to pursue the lawsuit after over two dozen cops spent weeks investigating the fake attack and logged 1,836 hours of overtime as a result.

Daily Mail also noted the Osundairo brothers who were hired by Smollett to stage his attack, plan to continue with their own lawsuit against Smollett’s legal team. According to the Daily Mail, “they’re seeking undisclosed damages after claiming their careers and reputations were damaged in the high-profile hoax.”

After the initial set of charges were dropped against the brothers, Abel and Ola Osundairo, they sued Smollett’s attorneys in April 2019, claiming their careers and reputations were damaged. “They claimed in the defamation lawsuit against lawyers Mark Geragos and Tina Glandian that they were maliciously portrayed as liars in the public” reports Daily Mail.

The lawsuit specifically references how Smollett’s attorneys suggested the brothers ‘might have been wearing white face’ when they attacked him and inferred that Abel had a sexual relationship with Smollett. Abel’s home country of Nigeria prohibits homosexuality. ‘Same-sex sexual activity is illegal in Nigeria, which can result in 14 years of imprisonment…if the accused is married the punishment is death by stoning.’

Therefore, Ms. Glandian’s statements about the brother being a homosexual ‘endangers him and the lives of his Nigerian family’ the lawsuit stated. The brothers’ lawsuit was stayed by a federal judge until the criminal proceedings for Smollett are completed. The brothers’ legal team is expected to file an update to the court by February 2.

Smollett, 39, was just convicted on five counts of disorderly conduct for faking his own attack and now faces jail time. “His sentencing date has not yet been set but he faces a maximum of 20 years in prison.”
