Study- females in front line fighting units undermine Marines’ effectiveness

Female Marine drinks Cobra blood as survival exercise

Female Marine drinks Cobra blood as survival exercise.

I have said before that Progressives are destroying the West, and here is another example of how their ideas are destructive to our security and in this case our armed strength. The Pentagon has given the Marines a January deadline to open all combat jobs to women. At present, women are eligible to serve in 315 of the 337 primary specialties.

The Marines formed a study group to look into the effects of integrating women into such roles. The results did not support the full integration the Pentagon demanded.

There is no doubt that women can fight if necessary, but this study shows they cannot fight as well as men, and of course that’s not really news. Except perhaps to Progressives.

Of course women can fight, but for maximum effectiveness the primary fighting forces should be male. If there is some shortage of males, by all means use women, but this study shows that any fighting force including women will be secondary in effectiveness to a force that is male only.

The Marines’ task force research findings are summarized thus-

  • All-male ground combat units in the Marines were faster, more lethal and less injured than units with mixed genders. All male squads, teams and crews demonstrated higher performance levels on 69 percent of tasks evaluated (93 of 134) as compared to gender-integrated squads, teams and crews.
  • All-male squads were faster in each tactical movement than those with both genders, according to the summary. The differences were greater when they were carrying heavy weapons and ammunition.
  • All-male rifle groups had better accuracy than integrated squads.
  • All-male squads had less injuries such as stress fractures.

  1. There could be good uses for women or a couple to be deployed behind the lines as saboteurs like Nancy Wake but they would undermine the effectiveness of front line fighting units.

    Another point is that it is likely that those who are calling for woman on the front lines would arguing that if some man pats a woman on the bum without first asking permission and getting an enthusiastic yes she would be so tramitised she would need extensive counseling. .

  2. Unless the enemy is sporting enough to field female combatants then female soldiers are gonna be walked over as surely as a men’s rugby team would a female team. Sacrificing all those female lives for equality is sheer sadism. It shows the fanaticism of the equalitarians given their general (leftwing) aversion to the actual purpose of the military: to kill the enemy and break things.

    Either they’re more sadistic than a gung-ho hawk, or… this isn’t *really* the military, as we know it, to them. It’s just females playing at soldiery alongside the men so the equalitarians can celebrate.

    Ergo,
    “The more an institution converges towards the highest abstract standard of social and distributive justice, the less it is able to perform its primary function.”
