Skip to comments.Few female Marines step forward for infantry
Posted on 11/28/2012 1:45:12 PM PST by QT3.14
Female Marine officers are unlikely to join the infantry anytime soon, in part because of a lack of volunteers for the Marine Corps' Infantry Officer Course, which was opened to women in September.
Only two of about 80 eligible female Marines have volunteered for the course -- a grueling, three-month advanced regimen conducted at Quantico, Va., that was opened to women to research their performance.
Of the two female volunteers, one washed out on the first day, along with 26 of the107 men, and the other dropped out two weeks later for medical reasons, a Marine Corps spokesman said.

HAH! I think we liked using the word BAM just to get them wimmin all stirred up. LMAO! I remember one night I was walking guard duty at mainside Lejeune and they had a fire drill at the BAM barracks. That was pretty interesting for a while.
Semper Fi to the two of you!
In the words of the most famous marine ever:
Does the military realize that GI Jane was a movie?
And it’s politicians pushing this stuff, not the enlisted women. I was in 20 years ago when this debate was starting and all of my shipmates and WMs said they weren’t interested in infantry-type jobs.
it’s bad enough guys have to die, and have to lose friends in war.
personally people are people, i don’t think it’s any worse or better to lose a good woman or a good guy. it’s equally bad.
that’s just it right there. the lawyers line up for the people with brasts who can’t pass the tests, where are they for the guys who wash out? wasn’t it ufair they couldn’t pass the test too? they failed so obviously just like the women, it’s the TEST’s fault.
Yep, I've said for years that if the feminists and the politically correct had been serious about real equality for women, that all women be required to register for the draft and be drafted 1 to 1 with men would have been among their top two or three demands.
Have never once heard one of the phony feminists suggest that.
right on. just about any time a woman i know talks to me it’s about doing something for her.
that, and if it comes in pink. “it” being anything.
they are protectors, not primary protectors, secondary protectors.
This is Ubama's sodomized, post-America military - - I would think he'll want some kind of "affirmative action" quotas, sooner or later. And the Ubama administration absolutely loves transexuals - - look for them coming soon to a Marine corps base near you.
I agree with you but sadly that ship has sailed. In between socialism here and the emasculation of our military, our nation’s days are numbered.
remember how out of 20 firemen 19 lassed the test and all were white the 20th guy was hispanic and then blacks claimed the test is geared towards whites.
When is this nonsense eevr going to stop?
Seriously common sense tells us that you get the person most qualified for the job but in liberal la la land it seems they dont care about that unless it affects them directly.
Im shot, I need carrying out , rounds are flying and the 120 pound woman comes along and what is she going to do , carry me, my kit, my gun, and her kit?
Hell no she can;t
Saying that I;’ve seen many men today who are either very fairy looking and look like Manning or just fat never iron clothes, shine boots, look after kit military members.
I will never forget when here in Jacksonville we had a few ships come in and the Navy guys and gals were just a bag of S$$$, hands in pockets, looked scruffy, awful and a disgrace to the military.
The women were so overweight and talked in such a way you would have thought they had just come off the street.
I asked one why she joined and she was honest. Pay off loans and get school while never getting in harms way.
The coastguard on the small ship, patrol one were te most professional, they knew their job, they were presenting themselves very well and made the coast guard look very professional.
>they are protectors, not primary protectors, secondary protectors.
Actually, females will evovle to be primary protectors in an r-selected environment, in r/K selection theory in evolutionary biology.
Read my profile. It explains why Libs have all these weird traits, like wanting women to be like men, no competition, promiscuity, destruction of marriage, earlier sexualization of children, no loyalty to in-group, etc.
It all comes down to their ideology being a psychological strategy to best exploit free resource availability. It’s seen commonly in nature, and has all of these traits, where it is found. (think Bunny rabbits, in fields of grass they will never fully consume).
This is why the Liberal is like this.
