The joke is that the physical test's difficulty for joining the Marines was lowered for women because more were failing than passing.


Considering their history of recruiting less than qualified candidates (see #1), it seems reasonable to consider that the bar was lowered for the sake of recruiting a higher volume of people.

Higher volume for a lower standard, yes. Now all we need is millions of them and we can use the Russian tactics from WWII. Or Zapp Brannigan's plan to defeat the killbots.

Probably an unpopular opinion, but war is not going to lower it's difficulty setting for you, regardless of your race sex or background. If you can't pass the minimum physical requirement, you shouldn't be there.

Quite. Kinda same thing with police and firefighters and stuff; if you don't make the bar, they shouldn't lower it for you just because you're a woman. They should just turn you away and tell you to come back when you do meet the standard, like everyone else.
