Army approves reduced physical fitness standards for women, older soldiers

Following a three-year review, the Army has scrapped plans to use the same physical fitness test for all soldiers, choosing instead to have some reduced standards to allow women and older soldiers to pass, the service announced Wednesday.

The decision follows a RAND-led study that found men were more easily passing the new, more difficult Army Combat Fitness Test (ACFT) compared to women and older soldiers, who were “failing at noticeably higher rates.” That six-event test developed in 2019 was an expansion from the three events – pushups, situps and a run – soldiers had done prior.

“This test is an essential part of maintaining the readiness of the Army as we transform into the Army of 2030,” Army Secretary Christine Wormuth said in a statement announcing the changes. “The revisions to the ACFT are based on data and analysis, including an independent assessment required by Congress. We will continue to assess our implementation of the test to ensure it is fair and achieves our goal of strengthening the Army’s fitness culture.”

Wormuth herself had expressed concern about whether the test was affecting the retention of women in the ranks.

“I also have concerns obviously about the implications of the test for our ability to continue to retain women, which we obviously want to do,” Wormuth said at her nomination hearing in May.

I want to really think about what I am going to say.

The United States Army is reducing the physical fitness standards for female soldiers, so they get higher scores on paper while having lower actual performance, in order to increase military readiness.

This is because the higher scores despite lower performance will allow the military to enlist and retain more women, increasing the diversity of our Army, and as we all know, diversity is our strength.

Not actual physical fitness.  Physical fitness isn’t a strength.  Diversity is a strength.

At the same time, this same administration is adamant that there is no physical advantage to being a biological male when competing in women’s sports.

Do you get it?

Men have a physical advantage over women in the military, so female physical fitness standards must be lowered to make their on-paper scores more equitable, but those same men have no physical fitness advantage the moment they step onto the field or into the ring or pool.

If you are having a difficult time understanding this, trying to reason or logic it out, if it is giving you cognitive dissonance, there is a good reason for that.

There is no intellectual consistency here.

The point is whatever position they need to take to advance their Leftist ideology and confuse and humiliate you us what they will do.

The point is to grind the logical thinker down under capricious contradictions until they are silent and simply obey without thinking.

That is clearly evident because this only makes sense to someone who has accepted that 2+2=5.

  1. There have always been 2 standards because most women can’t pass the mens PF test. I actually consider the whole exercise to be good ammo for our side. What would have happened if the military was fully woke/insane is they would have lowered the single standard so everyone could pass.

  2. I wonder if they are going to lower weapons proficiency standards also “to improve retention and readiness”.

  3. This isn’t actually a change in current standards, this is them admitting to the failure of their experiment.

    All the military services have always had different physical standards for men and women. Under pressure from feminists, the Army designed a new physical fitness test a while back that was supposed to be more generic and less focused toward the capabilities of men. They made the standards the same for everyone.

    It was tried out and even enacted on a provisional basis (people were required to take the test, but the scores were not used for promotion or retention recommendations). It was supposed to be fully implemented sometime this year, but there was still the minor detail that something like 40% of women were failing the test and only 7% of men were and if the scores were used for promotion decisions, it would give massive advantages to the men.

    So, after close to a decade of playing with this concept and tweaking and testing and adjusting and trying like heck to make it work….they’ve given up, finally admitting that, yes, men and women actually are different and have different capabilities. What a shock. I wonder why no one told us this before we wasted 10 years and probably billions of dollars on this project?

    Of course, in this age, all that means is that any male who doesn’t excel on the physical fitness test but wants to increase their chances for promotion, just needs to declare that they identify as female. That will get them the lower standards and their scores will soar. Sort of like NCAA Women’s swimming champion Will Thomas wouldn’t have made it past the preliminary rounds if he was competing with other men.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
