SAS considers watering down its gruelling selection tests to give women a better chance of joining the elite unit Test toughness could be lowered as women are given chance to join SAS in 2019 It could mean women will carry a lighter load during marches in Brecon Beacons But a source said it is about 'levelling the playing field', not 'lowering standards'

Why not just lower the standards for everybody and rename it the Not-So-Special Forces.

Our own SF is lowering standards. We just learned that from one who dared to share.

They may be “leveling the playing field”, but the enemy will not be so accommodating in combat.

Evidently the SAS is a primarily a social organization, not an elite combat operation.

Better yet, the male candidates should just say they identify as female and only have to meet the lower standards.

That’s fair, right?

“rename it the Not-So-Special Forces”

To preserve self-esteem: Everyone’s Special Forces.

Leveling the playing field, because every jihadi, Iranian, and North Korean enemy is going to approach battle with that same sense of fair play.

It’s a pity women got the vote.

The problem is Congress is dictating ridiculous social polices as a condition of DOD funding.

The American voter has got to tell Congress we want the most capable military to protect this country.

Instead, we’ve allowed the nonsense of “diversity” to masquerade as a virtue beyond merit.

Not to worry. I’m sure any enemy force will go easy knowing there are women involved.

That is a horrible thing to say, but I understand why you said it.

Too many women, unfortunately, go for emotions and fall for any conman politician who has any ability to manipulate feelings. And there are way too many women in positions of power who can't think their way out of a paper bag (Faucahontas, Pelosi, Sheila Jackson-Lee, the list seems endless). And I'm afraid the unintelligent women outnumber the intelligent women who actually *are* responsible voters.
