When Generals Lie.

It is a complete and total, colossal waste of time, money and resources to train someone for a job they will never get.

So, why are they engaging in this mental masturbation if, somewhere down the road if not immediately, there isn't a plan to do exactly that which the General now claims they won't do?

"An informed recommendation?" In a pig's eye. I don't need to have cancer to know I don't want it. I've seen the impacts enough as it is to go the entirety of my life without ever getting it, either.

Unless the standards for getting into and graduating from this school are not gender-normed, then the women going will be the upper 1/10 of one percent who bear absolutely zero resemblance to women in the Corps as a whole, and unless the standards are not reduced for the women, there is little chance any could successfully complete the school.

And WITH gender norming, they can never gain the respect or capabilities of their fellow officers and men they'd be "leading" into combat.
