Not All Social Experiments Are Successful, No Matter How “Politically Correct” The Result Would Have Been

You Can’t Drop Me; I’m a Precious Snowflake!

The two-and-a-half year period in which the Marine Corps’ Infantry Officer Course became gender-integrated for research will end without a single female graduate.

The final iteration of IOC to accept female Marines on a volunteer basis began April 2 with two female participants. One was a volunteer and one was a member of the newly integrated ground intelligence track.

Both were dropped that same day during the grueling initial Combat Endurance Test, said Capt. Maureen Krebs, a spokeswoman for Headquarters Marine Corps. Nine of the 90 men who began the course were also cut.

IOC, held quarterly at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia, began accepting female officers fresh out of training in September 2012 as part of a larger research effort into the feasibility of opening ground combat jobs to women. Lieutenants who made it through the legendarily tough 86-day course would not receive an infantry military occupational specialty or career advancement; they did it only for the challenge and the hope of being part of a historical Marine Corps achievement.

But as the research continued, few volunteers took advantage of the opportunity. By July 2014, only 20 female officers had attempted the course. Only one made it through the Combat Endurance Test, and none made it to the end.

      Men are bigger and stronger than women.

      So what the PC f**k.

        We discovered that we are really good at having to re-learn hard historical lessons when the forces of PC demand that we forget them.

    I have no problem with women wanting to try. But there are times when standards are standards; and if you can’t cut it. That’s the way it is.

      Look at the Toronto Police today that are now just an employment wing of the Government in power and a Diversity quota project to keep minorities happy at Election time with $90,000.00 a year jobs as to look good in a Diversity Poster or for Tourism ads with a Cop at a Cultural festival eating food and dancing with the peons.

      We lowered the Standards for age and size , so now we have mini-cops fresh out of school with a chip on their shoulder and almost ZERO life experience. In a recent Stat I saw how the female Cops call for back-ups at a 90% rate for 9-1-1 equal to male Officer where they have a 30% backup request . Then we have the PTSD crisis for female Cops that weren’t showed the truth in the Recruitment Posters where they would see Domestic abuse, dead drug addicts , abused children and the blood soaked cars from serious accidents they are ordered to respond to.

      Yes folks, all these years these special interest groups saw society as one be systemic bigotry and bias to keep out some groups from high paying jobs . We heard how the nation would be more just and fair once Minorities get in power .
      Right , look at how great things are under Obama or our Lesbian Premier in Ontario, or Diversity Police and the Military along with the feminists in the Human Rights Commissions that ignore the islamic misogyny and homophobia.

      Someone LIED to these women and made it seems like the Military and Police were equal to Public Sector jobs with no expectations or work ethics to meet the standards and you could get promoted from seniority alone.
      Watch for the next crisis to be in the Trades employment and Fire Fighting for women when they find out that they too were LIED to about High wages and freedom 55 retirement as if they are teachers .
      Sid Ryan used to bang his drum about Work Place deaths as he demonized the Employer for unsafe conditions, but the facts show that the vast majority of deaths are to new employees within the the first 14 months at a UNION job . This means that fellow senior Union members are knowingly putting these young people in a dangerous job with little experience that is getting them killed.
      Leave it to Sid to shift the blame because most of the time in a new job the senior workers play pranks on the newbie’s for laughs, but when Union workers get the newbie’s killed the corrupt system kicks in and no one goes to jail.
      The TTC had that serious death when an employee was crushed by a subway train at Yonge and Eglinton early in the morning as it came online with a new Employee operating it. There were 3 major failures by co-workers for the Safety rules that created the condition that cause the death of the new employee, and at first Bob Kinnear threatened a Strike because it was management that ignored their concerns for safety in the Subway system which he thought caused the death….. but when he got the facts that co-workers failed to enforce the safety rules and it was to blame he quickly changed the narrative to the media as did the the Mayor and many on Council linked to the TTC .
      McGuilty brought in the Min Of Labour that dragged out the case to help lapse the 1 year Limit for Criminal Charges by Chief Blair , and the MOL report made the victim out to be a drug user just from the traces of Pot in his blood that they could have found in Trudeau’s blood as well or Smitherman and Bryant as MPP’s for the Liberals .
      With just 3 weeks left to lay Charges on the TTC workers, I saw how the Mayor ( Miller) and Police Chief used the MOL report to excuse away the death as caused by the pothead employee as to keep the Peace with the Union.
      When I questioned the whole scam and cover-up , Brad Ross was very rude to me and said it was over because the TTC was fined about $225,000.00 by the Min Of Labour over safety issues related to the death.
      But wait, the TTC was Fined for failed Safety Conditions which was factual and linked to co-workers that ignored the new rules after the 1995 deaths near DuPont Station ( when Union workers failed to check the Safety Switches that stopped Trains from running red Lights in the tunnel – night crews never check them for almost 18 years and assumed they worked ) when l a Suicidal Operator with a mental health issue ran his train into a stopped Trained at DuPont and killed several people and injured dozens and never did one day of jail time and nor did one of the Night Crew lose their jobs.
      The media evidence for the 2008 death on the Subway system back my claims how this workers death was from co-workers and NOT drug use as the MOL reports made it out to be.
      So if the TTC was fined over $220,000.. for the death based on a failure for safety, then how did the Employees linked to the safety failures get away with causing the death by-proxy which was whitewashed as a drug related death to the media by McGuinty’s MOL where the end result was a Government Dept giving money to the TTC which later that year gave back over $220,000.00 of it as a mock Fine while the Wife and kids of the victim get fed LIES that daddy was a drug addict loser.

      It that how much a Life is worth to the Government juts to keep the Peace with Public Unions or the TTC ????

      Sid Ryan never once protested the Union member being painted as a drug addict that cause his death.
      How quickly these weasels at the Public trough toss their own kind under the train.

    Sexual dimorphism, 1
    Marine Corps, 0

    There are differences in the sexes. No ways around it.

    Kudos to the women who tried out. They certainly went through hell.
    The sleep deprivation alone. Hats off to them.

    Here’s a recent CBS 60 Minutes story on this failed experiment…..

      The leftist liberal social engineers love to find the one case of success and project it onto all women as if the failure rates are the fault of the women not trying hard enough because deep down inside they are Just Like Men according the Human Rights Commissions.
      Sure there was a tom boy on my street that played hockey better than
      some of the boys her age , but in the Olympic events it is not a Diversity quota system yet and when it comes to weight lifting and swimming or the shot-put and hammer throw there are no handicaps to make it FAIR for women.

      As for the Military, the big issue has been for the real time combat where you focus on the missions goal . The problem they have with females is that when a fellow soldier is shot , they get distracted and want to feel sorry for them and care for them instead of assuming the risks and knowing they must go on and leave the soldier that may die .

      It’s dangerous when Liberals let their feeling get in the way of the truth during politics because their good intentions often cause more harm to the people they claim they are helping.
      In the Military this Liberalism gets people killed because those savage ISiS thugs that Justin wants to give jobs to will one day slaughter thousands of civilians and children by good intention to not kill them when we had the chance .

      Watch for the Fire Dept to be next and the HRC orders them to get smaller trucks and ladder along with lighter axes and no longer claim stair in builds above 7 floor because it stressful . One day apartments and condos will be restricted to 6 storey’s to meet the Diversity quotas so anyone can be a fire fighter and it is no longer dangerous. But the land will cost big bucks and few will be able to afford a condo with the restriction to just 7 floors for a profit to build them .
      Cars are getting Idiot-proof so even the simpleton can get one , but in the Military the enemy may not have their own Diversity soldier to make the Warfare a Fair War .

        also male soldiers will feel like they have to protect the female soldiers because ….
        that is how men are wired and …
        THAT will put the men and the TASK at risk

  • canminuteman

    Did this surprise anyone anywhere? What will be surprising is if they don’t now make the training easier so that a woman can pass, like they did in Canada when they started butting women through the same training courses as men.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Just lower the requirements for women. And since the graduates won’t be accepted by the men they’re supposed to protect, put the women in their own units. Let them fight together and make sure you have a huge warehouse of medals ready to hand out for made up stuff in order to ‘prove the case’. Promote them all up the ranks over the men and soon you’ll have an all female armed forces.

    See? Problem solved.

      Man! That’s a foolproof plan. Are you a university professor or a liberal strategist?

    Women are known to be really top notch at giving birth. And kudos to them for that.

  • Tom Forsythe

    The fastest 100m dash ever run by a woman (on steroids) was not fast enough to even qualify for the men’s event. Must be because of the patriarchy.

  • Tom Forsythe

    Equality means you cross the starting line at the same time, not the finish line.

  • winniec

    You defeat the enemy by being HARDER and SMARTER, rather than by being ‘diverse’.
    Combat is not a ‘popularity contest’. Battle-readiness is the only thing that counts.

  • Justin St.Denis

    I’ve a nephew in the US Special Forces, and I was absolutely dumbstruck at what he had to endure during his training. There is NO WAY most able-bodied men could endure it, let alone women! My nephew has been a star athlete his entire life, is in incredible shape, and has the INCREDIBLE stamina and courage. Even he, however, can barely relive moments of his training. Eating bugs to survive was one of the things he found hard to handle during his training. Today, he heads a Special Ops unit. We pray for him every day.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      God Bless your nephew.

      • Justin St.Denis

        Thank you. He is doing well. Only 14 months to go. He is not planning on signing on for another stint. Three is enough. He wants to find a wife, have some kids, and live a normal life again. He is almost 40.

  • Kathy Nelson

    I have personally witnessed the concept of being “set up to fail” in action.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      This is quite the opposite. All of those women had extra coaching and assistance, with extensive pre-screening (to week out the obvious ones that would not complete) and none of them could still graduate.
      They were “set-up” to succeed, and yet they still couldn’t.

  • So much for this feminist crusade.

    How many of these women could made a place for themselves in other areas rather than waste time and effort and participate in this charade?

  • Alain

    The cultural marxists deny all truth and facts, and in this case many others the truth is that while we are all equal under the law (or we should be if we uphold the rule of law) we are NOT all equal. Women are not equal to men when it comes to upper body strength, and neither are all men equal when it comes to physical strength. Pretending that everyone is equal can only end in disaster wherever it is practised.
