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.”

"Everybody" uses keyboards today because its easier, convenient, etc. than writing by hand. BUT the keyboard is based on technology developed for people with disabilities. Does that mean able-bodied ppl perform writing tasks less well because they typed instead of wrote-by-hand? Of course not. So the standard is *not what the fittest can do* but how independent we can make the developmental level candidates. Eyes on the prize!
«We "only" lost about 250,000 people»
Well, you "only" lost about 3,000 people in 9/11 why did you guys make such a big deal out of it then?
I really fvcking hate it when people downplay the death toll of war. War is war and it is hell.
In special forces, we are talking about the best of the best. If I'm part of that team, I expect my squad mates can get me into safety when I get injured in the battle as I would assure I can do the same to them. When it comes to best of the best behind enemy lines and front lines, women is out of the question. Simple as that.
Though experiment: lets say mens physical potential is 200, and womens is 150. Then the minimum for joining the army is 140. Given a natural distribution within their given ranges, the men who joins the militarys physical ability will be greater than that of the womens(obviously). If the groups in the studys disparity in performance can be 100% correlated to this fact, then there is no problem. As women of the same average physical ability as their men counterparts will perform identical. But the men of superior physical ability will outperform both set of groups. So now it must be identified WHY the mixed groups perform worse than the all male groups.
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.
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
