SORRY FEMINISTS! First Female SEAL Applicant Washes Out...
When the military opened combat roles to women, feminists around the globe rejoiced. But not by finding their one rep maxes. Unless that one rep max included donut binge eating. Sorry, digression. They rejoiced foolishly, because they didn't want to actually join or anything (see Army Opens Combat Roles For Women. Women Don't Join...). The move was simply hailed as another notch in the (strained) belt for feminism. After the powder sugar dust settled, progressives eagerly waited for active duty womens to pave the road to ultimate badassery. But it hasn't exactly worked out the way they thought it would.
Enter the (almost) first female Navy SEAL:
The woman on track to become the first female Navy SEAL officer has exited the training pipeline, multiple Naval Special Warfare Command sources have confirmed to Task & Purpose.
The female midshipman, an ROTC junior at an unnamed U.S. college, was the elite SEAL Officer Assessment and Selection (SOAS) program's first female entrant ... "No women have entered the full training pipeline just yet," a Navy official [said]. "She didn't make it to BUD/S."
The entrant, one of a handful of female applicants ... appears to have exited the training pipeline after completing just half of the command's screening evaluations.
The first female officer candidate represented a significant milestone for a service branch that had, until the 2015 Pentagon guidance, excluded women from the SEALs and SWCC community.
This is my surprised face.
Here's the thing. Women, we already know you can be tough. Possibly even "my idea of a date is me kicking your ass" tough. Alas, pure toughness doth not a Navy SEAL make. Hence tons of super tough dudes are constantly dropping out of the SEAL program. The entire point of their screening process is to weed out the majority of applicants because they only want the absolute best of the best of the best. You feel me?
This is what equality looks like (see First Woman to Enlist in Combat? Yeah, She's AWOL and Congrats Feminists: New Legislation Would Require Women Register for Draft). Women are free to apply but few will qualify, and even fewer - if any - will ever complete the training to become a SEAL. And yes, we can say the same for a lot of men. But no need to to get your p*ssy hats in a twist, feminists. It's not discrimination, it's biology. Cuddle up to a male SEAL dropout for consolation.
Women have their roles in the military. They have valuable skills to offer the armed forces. Brute strength and inhuman endurance? Not among them.
Let's do away with the idea that ladies have to copy everything men do for the sake of equality. Be good at the things you're good at, ladies.
