My point is that with some will, motivation, money, or whatever... At least 25% of men can carry 60 pounds of gear for some distance. Unlike most women.

Maybe that's true, but we're also talking about also being combat effective at the same time. This whole conversation started with my link to an article about how they should integrate women into special forces because that will go better than infantry integration first. My argument was that 75% of men who signed up for special forces training and knew what they were getting into can't pass. Presumably they are a much smaller subset of the larger male population.

For Ranger school, you have to carry at least 70lbs for a 12 mile march in 3 hours. Per runner's world, the median half-marathon time of a man is 2 hours. If we're talking just carrying 60 lbs of gear for 12 miles in unlimited time, sure 25% of men probably can do that, but to do it at a level required by special forces schools even fully rested and fed, I'm skeptical.

More than 30% of candidates pass Special Forces training, and RASP. And I think they have actually lowered the physical requirements, and pass rates are much higher than 30%. Not sure about the real numbers.

You ain't giving men from 18 to 34 enough credit.

This is a video of a woman doing the 12 mile march you mentioned with only 35 pounds.

That's gotta be staged. Nobody falls down 12 feet from the finish line. That's Hollywood level bullshit right there.

It might be the girls' finish line, i.e., the halfway mark.

The Army had some females do same Ranger training, and it was a fucking joke. They had to lower the standards.
99%? That's a big number. It's probably a good thing that the discussion has now micrd from facile, self-serving generalizations to objective data.
SCIENCE, BITCH!

I particularly like the point where she uses her rifle as a crutch and points it directly at her own head. A+ firearm safety right there.

And points it at some of the people standing around. I knew people in basic training who got smoked pretty hard for accidentally pointing a rifle at a DS.
