No one should be surprised by this new study. Any sports fan knows that there are big differences between the physical abilities of men and women. Men have far more upper-body strength, which of course is essential for training soldiers for combat. Colonel Sagi described the silly tricks used to make it look like women could complete the training requirements, such as putting benches next to walls and allowing only the women to stand on the benches to get over the walls. Feminists won’t admit it, but women suffer physical injuries in sports more easily than men do. Knee injuries by women in sports such as soccer and basketball occur at a higher rate and are more serious than injuries to men. Unfortunately, many of these injuries to women plague them the rest of their lives. Pushing women to complete combat training is not good for women and not good for the military.
