We know, the headline says it all … although to be politically correct, we put the word “women” in quotation marks, just as the Orlando Sentinel put the word “female” in quotation marks when Gov. Ron DeSantis honored swimmer Emma Weyant. There’s been a raging battle over biological males participating in women’s sports, but we’ve been assured over and over again that there’s “little scientific evidence” that biological males have an advantage (that’s courtesy of NBC News). And remember when all the top military brass started trolling Tucker Carlson on Twitter after he complained about the feminization of the military? “Get right before you get left, boomer,” tweeted an official Marine Twitter account.
The U.S. Army didn’t think males had any physical advantage over females and planned to use the same physical fitness test for men and women, but that didn’t pan out, according to The Hill.

Ellen Mitchell reports:
Following a three-year review, the Army has scrapped plans to use the same physical fitness test for all soldiers, choosing instead to have some reduced standards to allow women and older soldiers to pass, the service announced Wednesday.
The decision follows a RAND-led study that found men were more easily passing the new, more difficult Army Combat Fitness Test (ACFT) compared to women and older soldiers, who were “failing at noticeably higher rates.” That six-event test developed in 2019 was an expansion from the three events — pushups, situps and a run — soldiers had done prior.
This goes against everything we’ve been told.
What is a woman though

How can they tell? Are they biologists?

How did they determine who was a woman?

I hate to be that guy, but how does the Army determine who is a woman?

Does the Army have a biologist check every human when they get off the bus or do they do it after diversity training?

The physical standards have never been equal. Females have always had lower requirements in push-up and two mile run. Sit-up requirement was the same. Also requirements decrease with age for everyone. Note: I am talking about the APFT standards.

Why? Is there some physical difference we've been told doesn't exist?
— Brian (@bhg70) March 24, 2022
That’s weird from what I’ve been seeing in the media recently I thought men and women have no differences when it comes to physical talent?

I’m fairly sure the DoD is just trolling us at this point.

But a man in women’s clothes competing against women has no physical advantage, and has to be called “woman” or else.
Democrats want it both ways and they get it both ways because the media never challenges their absolute horseshit.

Shouldn’t it be “birthing people” or “menstruators”?
