As I said already, that's what you think. Fire departments started out with what the military is pushing now. These people pushing this are not going to be satisfied with OK these women can't pass standards. No, they'll do what they've been doing with fire departments internationally and demand standards be lowered once it's shown that very few women can pass current standards. These people don't take no for an answer, and they will forcibly "equalize" everything even if it means harassing people into capitulating with lower standards. This is only step 1.
