Vasquez Was an Exception (and a Fictional Character)

From the Washington Times story on the Pentagon's decision to maintain the ban on women in combat:
"The current standards that exist for infantry, all men cannot meet those standards," [deputy undersecretary for military personnel policy Vee Penrod] said. "If the majority of women cannot serve in that [mission occupational specialty], the service secretary may restrict that [specialty]. That is with the Army."

Asked how the military knows women can't meet the standards without letting them try...

Answer: because there are no co-ed professional sports teams.

Sorry, PC social-experimenters, adding women doesn't make a group of men better at accomplishing tasks that revolve around strength and endurance.

  1. Adding women definitely improves the quality and quantity of heterosexual sex.
