My uncle was a frogman in WWII and I asked him if a woman could ever make it through the training and his reply was a hearty laugh and a big noway will it ever happen unless they make it easier ...
Least she tried. A lot of men have quit as well. Just something to think about before all the negative assholes start with their shitty comments
Standards for SEALS and RANGERS, and SP OPS must NEVER EVER be different/adjusted/or lowered for anyone! Same standards for all really should apply regardless of unit and gender period! If one expects someone else to be able to help carry their broken or wounded body off of the battlefield, then they also MUST meet the same standards to do the very same, NO EXCEPTIONS to be PC!
Quit trying to use the military as a social experiment and make it politically correct......it is not, nor should it be, to be the best it can be. And, if you have not served....STFU.....You know not what you spout.
Handeled it half way through. That's awesome. I'll bet she lasted longer than a lot of guys. She has nothing to be ashamed of. This is one of the hardest training scenarios in any military. Kudos young lady.
Three things to be proud of in this situation-----a service member was motivated to serve her country as a Navy Seal; she was given a fair opportunity to succeed; and no eligibility standards were sacrificed. 'Atta girl, sailor.........
I give her props for trying. It ain't easy or everyone would do it. Everyone talking crap about her ...well most of you would not even qualify to attempt the indoc. Shut your pie holes or may I suggest you pic up the rifle and give it a shot
Even most Males are not cut out to be Seals. At least she tried. Much respect to her for trying and the Military for allowing her to try. God knows if they didn't the She-Man Man Hater Feminists would have lost their minds.
Seal training is the hardest military training there is. Full grown men who go to ranger school have broken down crying before it is over. This type of training is tougher. The only thing that gets close to seal training is delta. Which, usually a class can be around 50 male candidates by the time it is all said and done, your lucky to have 12.
Men and women just aren't the same. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out. Just compare the average woman to the average man and see which one is naturally bigger and stronger.
When the majority of the biggest, strongest men wash out and only a small percentage make it through then the odds of even the biggest, strongest woman making it through is extremely unlikely.
It's nothing against women, they just quite frankly aren't designed for this.
