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.”

I haven't impaired to watch the video fully yet so please don't tell me they're going to call this the sexiest act.
and since they know better let's put them in the Marines for a week and then they can start talking
GUARANTEE YOU Cenk punk ass was bullied in highschool. He wants to say women are better than men so bad. Sorru bro, men are 50% stronger upper body alone. Women Marines just can't compete. Not sexism. Just Biology.
We only lost 250000 people in WWII.... Only a quarter of a million people....Well Here are the facts!!! "World War II was the deadliest military conflict in history in absolute terms of total casualties. Over 60 million people were killed, which was about 3% of the 1940 world population " I like how they skipped World wide loss vs US loss who enter the war super late ad was very very remote to conflict....
This is anecdotal since it's just my experience, but the men "freaking out" only pushed us harder to succeed back when I was in the Army. Yea, they'd yell and cuzz, but they never lost focus and they put it in our heads how serious the task was, and we fed off of that energy to accomplish what we needed. I had only a few female leaders and they were great, but this idea that women have more mental acuity in the heat of combat is absolutely absurd. Millions of years of human and pre-human evolution shaped men as the fighters of war, which manifests in both the physical and mental/emotional aspects of war. I have a hard time believing women would generally keep themselves together better than men after seeing their friends get blown up and killed by an IED right in front of them.
the only reason why the British won the fawlkands war was because they carried every thing with them their food tents cooking rifle ammo ect, and because they were able to walk such long distances and immediately jump into combat, the enemy is never yogi to wait for you to get ready they'll just kill you even if you were sleeping they'll kill your or capture and interrogate you, and that's why the army must have strong abled men and women at maximum lethality at all times one slip up could cost you your life
These people are really talking about drafting women into the military SMH. Not even possible the extremely large majority of women in this country are not passing these physical tests, therefore, how are you going to randomly select women to join?
I just read a study done by Isreals army. The women in combat units were regularly missing their periods and many have become sterile due to the physical needs of the job. Also they found that during actual fighting the men were much more ferocious and quicker to make the decision to pull the trigger to kill the enemy. The study sited two specific incidents where hesitation by a women soldier cost lives.
"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.
