All-Male Marine Units Battled Mixed Gender Squads – Do The Results Surprise You?

For a while now, the Left has made it its mission to invade every nook and cranny of our society, politicizing it and leaving it in ruins.

Nothing has been spared, as merely watching a football game or Sportscenter is vomit-inducing these days.

While it’s bad enough that they’re spreading their poison throughout every facet of our culture, what’s even worse is that they’ve set their eyes on the most important group in the nation, the very last one that should be infected with politics:

The military.

It’s no longer about protecting the homeland and winning wars, no, it’s all about transgender inclusion, dumbing down standards, and forcing women into combat with men.

For some reason, leftists desperately want to believe that there truly isn’t a difference between men and women, and that women can do anything and everything a man can.

Therefore, they forced the military to test out mixed squads, hoping they’d get the results they wished for. But to absolutely no one’s surprise, the tests did the exact opposite.

As reported at the Federalist Papers Project, when the US military lifted its ban on women serving in combat in 2013, the Marine Corps began what it called an “unprecedented research effort” to understand the impact of gender integration on its combat forces.

They conducted a year-long experiment called the Ground Combat Element Integrated Task Force, in which 400 Marines–100 of them female–trained for combat together and then undertook a simulated deployment, with every aspect of their experience measured and scrutinized.

All branches of the military faced a January 1, 2016 deadline to open all combat roles to women, and the Marine Corps used this experiment to decide whether to request exceptions to that mandate.

The Corps’ summary of the experiment concludes that combat teams were less effective when they included women. Shockers.

Overall, the report says, all-male teams and crews outperformed mixed-gender ones on 69% of tasks evaluated (93 out of 134). All-male teams were universally faster “in each tactical movement.

On “lethality,” the report says:

“All-male 0311 (rifleman) infantry squads had better accuracy compared to gender-integrated squads.

There was a notable difference between genders for every individual weapons system (i.e. M4, M27, and M203) within the 0311 squads, except for the probability of hit & near miss with the M4.

All-male infantry crew-served weapons teams engaged targets quicker and registered more hits on target as compared to gender-integrated infantry crew-served weapons teams, with the exception of M2 accuracy.

All-male squads, teams and crews and gender-integrated squads, teams, and crews had a noticeable difference in their performance of the basic combat tasks of negotiating obstacles and evacuating casualties.

STORY CONTINUES BELOW…

During casualty evacuation assessments, there were notable differences in execution times between all-male and gender-integrated groups, except in the case where teams conducted a casualty evacuation as a one-Marine fireman’s carry of another (in which case it was most often a male Marine who ‘evacuated’ the casualty).”

Female Marines were also more likely to be injured during training, which isn’t surprising considering the intense stress that’s placed on the body during these exercises.

Leftists want to pretend that not allowing women in combat roles is misogynistic, that it’s saying women are inferior.

The truth is, on the battlefield, they are, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Not only that, but their presence alone is enough to change the way the males act, which isn’t their fault…it’s just reality.

Putting women in combat roles is foolish. It helps no one.

The evidence is in, it’s political correctness gone mad, and it will degrade our military’s ability to face our enemies on the battlefield.
