Of course, in a world of objective standards of performance, that question would never come up. The reason why police forces switched to 9 millimeter handguns in the 70s was because girls couldn’t handle .38 Specials. LOWERED STANDARDS.
Next, they will want women on Seal teams. When the extreme end of the bell curve eliminates all but a very few kickass males. Feminists want to push girls to the front of the line. Why are there no women basketball centers in the NBA?
It’s obvious to us, but not to the politically correct crowd.
The switch from revolvers in the 1970s (the 1980s, really) had NOTHING to do with women, and everything to do with the new generation of semi-autos (SW, Sig, Beretta and Glock) which provided officers with more firepower. The .38special really doesn’t have that much over the 9mm so it wasn’t much of a choice or change, and there were so few women officers back then it couldn’t possibly have an impact.
I will agree on the standards. In 16 years of service with The Army, I’ve seen standards changed, waived and even outright IGNORED to accomodate females.
All well and good as far as Seals and NBA players are concerned.
But your post implied that she was selected over others more qualified. How do you know this? From her blue eyes?
