Should standards be lowered for women trying out for Special Operations in the Military?

Asked by: debater2123
  • Yes it should be considered.

    Women are not physically strong as men and it is the law of nature. But they have a different purpose to serve in the military. Whenever there is a military conquest the soldiers involved themselves in brutal and inhuman acts. However, I think that in the presence of women such acts can be minimized as the male soldiers would not carry out rape and molestations in front of their female colleagues. However, in order to include more women in the army the physical standards need to be lowered.

  • No, if you want equal service, you get equal standards.

    Women should be held to the same standard as men. They're special forces for a reason. If women don't make the cut they don't earn the right to complain about whether or not there are women in the SOF or not. That's just how the world works and they have to deal with it.

  • Ask for equal rights and you should receive equal treatment too.

    We cannot lower standards for anyone, not even women. If you wanted to join the Special Operations in the Military you have to earn it. Not only that, but it is perfectly possible for a woman to join if she works hard enough, so you can't say it would be impossible. Those who fail couldn't handle it, and they shouldn't bother trying if they don't give it their all.

  • I support women in the military, but that means no special treatment.

    If we lower standards for women, no one will think they earned the position, especially in special forces. If they meet the standards already set, then they only impress by showing their own commitment. Making them change standards for women would be seen as weak and unworthy of the position. I understand that there is a certain amount of difference due to anatomy(yeah, ladies carry a little more weight in two specific areas generally. Think about it) but the overall point of special forces is that you are special, above the rest, not anything less. The ideal of that I find to be important enough that the standards generally stay the same.

  • That is dangerous

    Than in the freaking military we will have people who are not as physically strong as they should be, and can ont fight, protect them selves, protect others, carry people ect. Feminists have always had bad ideas but this is by far the worsted. Safety before political correctness. Thats just a horrible idea.

  • This is War

    War is brutal. If women are not even strong enough to pass the minimum fitness requirements, how are they going to be strong enough to survive warfare.

    If women want equality, then why wouldn't they be expected to do as many push ups and situps, and have as good a mile time as a man.

  • I don't think so

    If standards are lowered, men will be mad and if a women gets past the training with lowered standards than they wont be viewed the same by men who have completed the training to the normal standards. If women are allowed they should be held to the same standards too.
