  • It's certainly not fair, but it's a biological reality

    Enough with the bunk: on average, females have less upper body strength than males. It's not fair, but it's the biological reality. Our ancestors evolved the tools they needed to do their jobs: males needed strength to fight other males, while women needed wide hips to properly birth children. This means that the rules are not fair. Maybe the Navy could require more conditioning from women as opposed to physical sparring? The only problem with this I see is that male SEALS will begin to see female SEALS as less capable. If the performance of our SEALS decrease after this, I guess we'll know why. As of now, though, the benefits seem to outweigh the risks.

  • Women have a disadvantage

    Women have a genetic disadvantage. Women carry extra weight in their pectoral muscles. Along with extra weight in their rear end. This disadvantage should be enough to slightly alter the requirements for women to enter the navy seals. Having more women in the seals could be very beneficial to the Navy.

  • I think that they should allow them to be in the navy

    People complain that our military is slowly becoming smaller and I strongly believe. They carry extra weight and most women have a natural sense for helping others. They could also provide the men with sexual relief in the battle field which would make our military personel much happier overall Hi.

  • Women have equal rights

    Women carry more weight in their pectoral muscles along with shorter muscle length. This biological disadvantage they also carry milk, if them or their squadron are left on an island they can provide a lot of food for the team members which would result in many many many many less deaths

  • No, Navy SEALS should not change their fitness standards for women.

    No, changing the fitness standards for women in the Navy SEALS is not productive. Changing the standards would insinuate that women are intrinsically inferior physically, which is not 100% true. If a person, female or male, cannot meet the physical requirements, they should not be in the Navy SEALS at all. Women should absolutely be allowed to join the Navy SEALS, but all members should be treated equally. Nearly three-quarters of men who join the Navy SEALS drop out, but that does not mean that a woman cannot succeed.

  • Those standards are probably there for a reason.

    Those fitness standards are most likely in place because Navy SEALS need to be in great physical condition to do their jobs. If someone doesn't meet those standards, then they will likely be in danger (and potentially put others in danger) if they are ever in combat or a similar situation. Therefore, the standards probably shouldn't be changed.

  • Seperate But Equal

    The standards should not be any different for female soldiers than they are for the males. The enemy is not going to care what gender they are when they see them emblazoned with our flag. They will have to endure the same war and the same tactics. Therefore, their strength should be of the same level, otherwise we are sending our female troops out without having been properly trained.

  • Standards should not be lowered

    No, the Navy SEALS should not change their standards for women. The training is at the level it is for a reason and to compromise that could result in death of the woman SEALS, other SEALS, or civilians. There is no reason to believe that a woman cannot accomplish any task or job set forth by another person. Women should not ask for or expect a handicap for anything, this is what fuels the problem of gender inequality.
