A year long study by the Marine Corps found that all male units performed better than squads that were mixed gendered. All male units were faster, more lethal, and more capable of evacuating casualties. All male squadrons performed better than 69% across the board at hitting targets, climbing obstacles, and also avoiding injuries. Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian (The Point), Ben Mankiewicz (What The Flick?!), and Wes Clark Jr. hosts of The Young Turks discuss.
Do you agree with the study? Should women be allowed to serve on the front lines? Let us know in the comments below.

“A yearlong Marine Corps study trying to understand how gender integration would affect combat readiness has found that all-male units were faster, more lethal and able to evacuate casualties in less time.
Overall, according to a summary of the study, all-male squads performed better than mixed groups in 69 percent of the tasks evaluated.”

But thats common sense lol😂😂 i mean what is cenk talking about? Women are physically less capable than men, why do you want to pressurize women into marines? they are doing great in health care , why does men and women have to look equal in everything? its just stupid.
They mentioned Israely women in combat, yes but there are very few because they only allow the ones who can do the exact same requirements as the men. In the U.S. military people keep saying the women do the minimum to pass but that's misleading because they lowered the standards for women to pass. The men have a much higher minimum requirement to pass then the women do. For instance the pt test for men to pass is a minimum of 42 pushups, 62 sit ups, and a 14 min 2 mile run. For women its 22, 42, and a 16 min 2 mile run. Plus at the end of basic training you have to finish a 12 mile road march with 70 lb back pack. And by the end of training the ave male doubles all his pt test scores.
Cenk your a friggin Hypocrite you think woman can be Navy Seals,So you change your tune quicker & more then Hillary,i guess to keep getting subscribers? Your just a douch,I would love to see your comments on Navy Seals rescuing Lynch for Propaganda & she admitted she couldn't even fire her gun,Frozen in fear.Sell your Propaganda to Europe England may buy some of it? Your 2nd amendment Gun grabbing Ideology,Yes your counterpart my Nephews a Ranger/Sapper 4 tours in Afghanistan & no way would put his men at Risk for some Liberal ROEs that force him as a 2nd Lieutenant to put someone who can't or wont kill.
They just have to use the women in the right way. It's obvious women would have a more difficult time competing with men in physical activities. In fact when there are smaller men they would have a harder time competing with bigger men in hand to hand combat...usually. That's why there are women's tennis matches and men's tennis matches...or other sports or activities. There are women pilots, astronauts, engineers, etc. Use them where physical prowess is not the key element.
You have to go with statistics not politics. The benefit in the modern climate to an all female unit is the fight against Islamic extremists in the same way the Kurdish do, on account of their belief that if they killed by a women they will not go to heaven.
I jog about 8 miles every morning and the lady bessides me sprints the entire distance. most men I know aren't capable of jogging for 1 hour but this lady sprints it. she wouldn't be capable of a royal marine but she would be physicly more than enough for the infantry.
“Independent Group” - we have corporate “Independent groups” all the time... reviewing events, such as installing new code... it’s usually made up of managers who managed their way - out - managing people because their projects failed but, not enough to be fired. So they become “reviewers” of other people who’s projects that were successful... hmmm... like the guy in the armchair who calls the sports star a “bum!” And I lose it when they start out “Now, I’m not a “technical” person but explain to me what happened in “non-technical” terms...
Even when it comes to fire fighting training women's training was made to be a bit easier .
Remember the rescue process includes carrying out casualties .
I don't think it's safe for someone to get a female rescuer if they can't carry you
Why was backpack throwing not tested before letting them in? Because none of them would qualify and feminists would whine about army being 'unfair'. Now the same people are whining about why were they accepted at all.
Women are usefull just as men. But they do different things better then eachother. For example while men fight on the frontline and fight women stay on the homefront and take care of the country from within childcare, arms manufacturing ex. Forcing equality in the army degrades the effectivness of the army. Especially in the elite units such as the Marine Corps
"I believe it", like you can disagree with it if you didnt like it, like its anecdotal not statistical. These morons are just jokes. "It wasnt an independant group" WTactualF.
Cenk - Q-"how do you explain that" (talking about physical differences between men and women)
A- Biology, dickhead.
The horror! Women dont perform in combat as well in combat!
Something that the societies since pre historic times know...
I wonder what feminists will say about this! Nothing like a reality check for these new philosofies to start crumble down!
How is this in any way a surprise? Generally, a given male is physically stronger and faster than a given female; this is more so true when the males/females are physically well-toned/exercised (as is usually the case in the military, particularly the Marines, Seals, and similar). In Re: Israeli female soldiers and similar -- in those countries, the female soldiers are usually not assigned to the same specific physical assignments as the males are. They are trained, of course, appropriately, and may be assigned to a given group/what-have-you, but are more focused on organizational/maintenance assignments vs. harder physical assignments/combat (or are held as secondary/support combatants vs. "first tier" runs, so to speak). That's an important distinction. EDIT: OH, and in re: emotional/mental steadiness in women vs. men -- I find that completely credible. Women are generally better at maintaining composure in a number of high-stress situations, mentally speaking, than men. (The stereotype of the "hysterical female" is a misperception, to say the least: *because* women are generally better at expressing/channeling their emotions, they become better at maintaining their composure under many emergency circumstances than many men do.)
So you need a study to tell you that? You really have to be Ana kasparian ( pretty stupid) to need a study for a FACT.I am a woman and everyone knows that we women are NOT as strong as men are.It's a FACT. TYT is the most stupid channel out there anyway
I don’t understand any resistance to this whatsoever, or trying to carve out something having to do with the administration. You mean big, strong, fit and well trained men performed better? Gasp! Their lives are at stake in these scenarios, no one detrimental should be allowed to be with them in battle
Honestly this is not worth discussing..facts are facts , men are physically stronger than women.. ,the mental part we are very equal ..but please physically evolution has been in our favor we just love physically demanding duties ...
I think we should have "all woman" units... when sent into battle if they win, fine... if they lose then we can say to the enemy... "so you beat a bunch of girls... big deal"... it's a win/win situation.
We cannot take this with a grain of salt. Plain and simple, women do not belong in combat. It's not sexist at all. It's a simple fact of genetics and training. Specially in the Marine Corps.
The military is not fair, and discriminates just as fairly. If you cant pass certain exams or training regiments you cannot have certain jobs. You flat footed? Have asthma? Got colorblindness? How about past broken bones or physical deformities? How about mental issues? All of these and more disqualify you from many different jobs. The militaries job and single goal no matter the job is war. War is the mission, and the standards must match the means to win the war.
Now this doesn't mean some women cannot do the job, and those who are able should be allowed to join. If women want to try, then let them. However the standards should not be dropped for fairness, because war is not fair. Everyone is held to the same standards every day, and just because you can pass the tests doesn't mean they stop. Every year you must show you are still able, and if you are not, then you are separated.
Being a Marine veteran myself I think outside of the training requirements we have to look at the other big issue that no one wants to talk about, and that is the psychological impact that will happen from letting women serve in a combat role. Being deployed for months on end it gets to you, and we all know that sex would become a factor. That will impact mission readiness and unit cohesion. Also take into account a woman getting shot. If a man sees a woman has been shot he is going to want to drop everything to help her. How about we also make a scenario where a woman gets shot and a man also gets shot. Let's say the man is worse off than the woman now. Who do you think is going to get the help first? I'd be willing to bet the woman.
Now why would this happen? Again its simple genetics. Men are programmed instinctively to help women in need. It's been this way for thousands of years. In the end, letting women serve in a combat role is a more of a detriment to mission readiness than it is to a boon to mission readiness.
Ladies, im not being sexist so please dont take offense. Men are built more durable than women. There muscles are, in fact, larger than a womens. This makes them more fit for jobs that 99% of women cant do. Women are only inthe marine core because they lowered the standards. Its a fact. Women cant do all things that men can do. Again, im not being sexist im sure there r things women do men cant but any act of strength speed or durability is so ethi g men do better naturally
