Fitness standards for British Army recruits including men have been reduced so that more women can join and equality targets can be met.
Slim pickings on troll-worthy news today, but this one ticks a few boxes.
It should be noted that this criticism comes from "Major Judith Webb, the first woman to lead an all-male field force in the Army [who] warned that standards would deteriorate further if the UK followed America in allowing women soldiers to fight on the front line."
Major Webb argues that women were not up to the exacting standards of close quarter combat: “I don’t think we should have women in infantry roles. By opening it up to women, are women shooting themselves in the foot? Because they are not going to be able to meet those standards,” she said.
