Setting a record in trailblazing.

On September 21, 2017 the Washington Post triumphantly announced that the first woman had completed the Marine Infantry Officer Course:

In a historic first, the Marine Corps plans to assign a female officer to the infantry following her anticipated graduation from its grueling training program, service officials said Thursday.

Four days later came the NY Times Op Ed explaining that women Marines would be accepted as combat officers because their peers would know they are the real deal:

By integrating only women who have already met the infantry’s difficult training standards, the corps acknowledges that military readiness is paramount. At the end of the day, this newly minted infantry officer will prove herself by the way she carries herself around her fellow Marines. Peer leadership, too, will be important. Her classmates have seen her perform and can be powerful allies as she integrates into the operating forces.

Indeed, as the Op Ed concluded, this was the beginning of a brave new world:

I anticipate there will be little fanfare from the Marine Corps regarding the graduation. As The Times has noted, the Army’s graduation ceremony for its first female infantry soldiers made no mention that some of them were women — and that is as it should be. Monday’s graduation is important because it paves the way for women in combat arms not to be a big deal in the future. Like her male classmates, this officer has met an exceptionally high standard. Soon, she will be just one more Marine infantry lieutenant, picking up her first platoon.

But this brave new world where women were just as tough as the men and had to meet historic standards was not only short lived, it was a universe of one.  Having proved that they could (by hook or crook) graduate one woman through the Infantry Officer Program without officially making the course much easier, the Marine Corps waited just over four months to stop pretending women could qualify without changing the rules.  On Feb 7th, the Marine Corps Times announced Passing Combat Endurance Test is no longer required for infantry officers.  According to the article this is such a minor change that it hardly merits noting.  At the same time, it explains that the previous standard was so ridiculously high it had to be changed or women would be prevented from becoming infantry officers:

In a slight change to the grueling initial stage of the 13-week Infantry Officer Course, Marines will no longer be required to pass the Combat Endurance Test to move on.

The Corps has come under criticism for what some have claimed to be unnecessarily high standards to graduate from the course. To date, only one unnamed female Marine has successfully completed the entire course.

But Marine officials at Training Command contend the changes are not an effort to water down standards.

This is the official beginning of stage two for Marine infantry.  Given that stage one lasted only four months, we should expect lightning progress moving forward.

    The washout rate was only 25% for an officer’s course. 10-15% of that would be due to injury, I’d guess. Maybe even higher. Another 3-4% for other contingencies. The rest for sheer lack of preparation. Women had been 0 for 33 before this one came along. The pressure to get one through had to be mounting. Letting it run off to where women were 0 for 3000 isn’t a good look for a branch coming off their photo scandal in #Metoo America.

    It isn’t “integration” when you’re a living exception to every rule and tradition in the Corps. When the military must bend over backwards for you on everything from uniforms to latrine privacy, you better be Rambo freakin’ Goliath… and it’s a safe bet 2nd Lieutenant Bewbs is not.

  7. Anonymous Reader says:

    If I read correctly, officers candidates will stil have to take the CET but the results will only apply to men. Women candidates will know their CET score, but that’s it. So it’s a test but it’s only applied to one sex.

    This is like taking the SAT or ACT and being admitted to college regardless of the test score. Another variation on the “equal but not really equal but we all accept the lie” game that we’ve been forced to play since the 1970’s. Because equality of result requires, even demands, inequality somewhere else.

  8. Anonymous Reader says:

    Or perhaps I am misreading and no candidate is required to pass the CET, they are just required to take it. Yet standards are not lowered, because equality of results is possible.

    This surely pleases high ranking military officers around the world, starting with the generals of the People’s Liberation Army…

    Quick – let me take the opportunity to copy this “I told you so” (granted that all of us saw it coming) over from the previous thread:

    I hope Dalrock will allow me to briefly admire myself on his blog for having accurately predicted this years ago. In keeping with the idea of “changing our views of what is normal”, the ethos of the Marines is being modified from a punch in the face to a pat on the head.

    Remember, the standards will never be lowered; only modified and enhanced to more accurately reflect the realities of the ever changing face of war, or something like that. But never lowered. That word will not appear.

    OT: “When Will We Have the Guts to Link Fatherlessness to School Shootings?”

    https://pjmedia.com/lifestyle/will-guts-link-fatherlessness-school-shootings/

    “What is the primary way to attack a boy’s masculinity? Strip him of his primary male role model: his father. Over the past 50 years, we have taught women to embrace single motherhood and to cut fathers out of their children’s lives through divorce.”

    Susan Goldberg typically shills for feminism, so I’m pleasantly surprised to see this.

    Next, Terry Brennan, Co-Founder of Leading Women for Shared Parenting, criticizes Brad Wilcox in “Republicans Should Man Up On Fatherlessness”.

    http://dailycaller.com/2016/06/17/republicans-should-man-up-on-fatherlessness/

    “How would Holt and Wilcox have divorced fathers respond to Republican inaction and calls they re-enter a contract already costing them their children, life savings and freedom, because of their gender?

    Indeed, the difference between Dr. Helen Smith and Holt and Wilcox is, she hears the horror stories of divorced fathers. Better still, how would Holt and Wilcox react themselves if forced to process the emotion of losing their children for all but ‘standard visitation’ because of their gender? From their actions, I’m suspect they’d channel their anger into a positive effort at reform.

    Republicans would be better served if they changed their ways; rather than preach, listen. Listen to divorced fathers about bigotry in Republican courts. Only then can they rebuild a party which sides with the people rather than the establishment.”

    It’s good to see someone in a mainstream conservative publication taking Wilcox and his ilk to task.

  11. Lost Patrol says:

    The test has been improved from a pass/fail to a pass/only. But you will have the personal satisfaction of knowing you would have failed it as you continue with your training and assessments.

  22. Gaza says:

    What is often overlooked when considering these little twerks of progress toward equality is that the impact is not limited to the future.

    The results, of course, will play out going forward in time, but what fails to be measured in these one-sided debates is the retroactive dilution and demoralization effect that such a decline in standards reaps from those who have previously earned their station through the previously (high) standard.

    The prog perverts achievemnt into mere credentialism; a purely feminine, consumer-based system of signaling status and in-group conformity. But true achievement and merit carry much more than the extrinsic feathering of caps.

    These giant leaps (small steps) undermine far more than the future integrity of the fighting force. They devalue the skilled violence of masculinity. Something that is not pretty nor to be celebrated, but deeply necessary in human weapons of war – and worthy of a seriousness and level of respect that todays culture fails to provide.

    Which calls into question whether such a culture is deserving of protection and service at all.

  23. Anon says:

    A democracy deserves to die in such a manner.

    Democracy in its current form, is a terrible system and certain not sustainable, due to the nature of women. That is why Democracy has a life-cycle, after which it unavoidably devolves into a ‘feminist’ police state + goddess cult.

  24. Paul says:

    The cognitive dissonance between the feminist ideology and reality as witnessed by the outcomes of objective tests must be (predictably) resolved by changing the tests by those suppressors of truth. Such tests are implicit in any competition. Therefore ALL competition must be eliminated to uphold the feminist illusion. We all know that reality cannot be distorted infinitely, eventually this WILL catastrophically collapse into chaos.

    “By integrating only women who have met the tough standards…..”
    ….and then finding that there are no standards, you can smell the Orwellian doublespeak.
    The Australian Army recruitment posters have a woman in uniform doing something Army-ish. In Germany, a recruitment poster for the Bundeswehr has a woman in uniform doing something Army-ish. I’m not sure about the States, but this tells me that a similar virus has infected Armed services there too.
    It’s all okay, until an actual shooting war starts. Then the demographic problem of low fertility rate will suddenly reverse, as all of these tough women accidentally get pregnant just as mobilisation is needed. We’ve been down that road and we know where it leads.

  27. American says:

    Great point Spike. They are there for the goodies until danger raises its head and their own heads might get blown off. Then, as if by magic, they’re all home pregnant on deferral but still collecting the goodies while keeping the fallacy perpetuating that females make just as good Marines as males. How do we implement a policy that females in the military must be on birth control, nor allowed to escape to the rear with the gear, during times of war and military engagement so the reality that they are not as good can reveal itself?

    Thanks. Stanton continues to disgust me with such tripe. This was my response (if anyone cares) it may be removed from the site:

    What an embarrassment Stanton is.

    If Stanton wasn’t so busy bowing to the women in his life, he’d see that girls and women are inclined to be horrible gossips, they are petty and vindictive, they are manipulative (Judges 16), they are cruel and shun others in their group.

    He’d also see that women are hypergamous (2 Sam 11) and will betray their vows to one who loves them(Prov 6), they are calculating willing to commit murder of children to gain power (2 Kings 11/2 Chron 22) , envious and willing to commit murder (1 King 3), willing to murder their own children (2 King 6), willing to murder to keep power (1 King 18), lead men astray (Prov 6, Eccl 7), and notoriously UNFAITHFUL (Eccl 7).

    No Stanton plays his ridiculous game, defining womanhood as virtuous. He distinguishes maleness from manhood, ignoring the fact that we distinguish between women and ladies, between womanhood and femininity, between modest and wanton.

    There is plenty to the nature of women that is crass and base, it seems that Stanton has forgotten the absoluteness of Romans 3:23. This article is a farce, and Stanton’s ministry is a sham since he puts out such dishonest nonsense. Let him read and heed 2 Peter 2.

    I’d never heard of Holt until I read Ms. Brennan’s article. Where do they find these dudes?

  31. DEN1 says:

    The outcome of this ‘experiment’ reminds me of something my Drill Sergeant said to us during Basic Training in July 1977. There was a group of us recruits at the live fire and maneuver range. This is a range where a team of two soldiers move towards an objective while firing and targets along the way to the objective. Well, while awaiting our turn to go through the course, some of us began to goof off (after all, we were 17-18 year old at the time). A Drill Sergeant spotted us as we were acting like a bunch of knuckle-heads. When the Drill Sergeant headed our way, we knew we were finished. We knew we’d be doing push-ups or cannon-cockers until he was tired. So, we braced ourselves and came to parade rest. What happened next left an impression on us (me for at least) for the rest of our lives. Instead of yelling at us, and telling us how stupid we were, he leveled a gaze at us, from underneath the brim of his campaign (Smokey the Bear) hat and said, “You know, this shit is all fun and games……’til the killin’ starts.” With that, he just turned and walked away. Not another word was uttered. The immediate environment changed in an instant.

    So when I see, or hear about social engineering going on within the military now, I have a flash-back to that day in basic training and remember those words my Drill Sergeant said to us…

    “This is all fun and games…’til the killin’ starts.”

    Thank you Drill Sergeant Santiago, where ever you are.

  32. Anon says:

    Holt has hated the Androsphere for a long time. He truly believes that ‘Social Conservatives’ have already won against feminism, and that the Androsphere represents extremists for a cause that no longer needs to be fought. He thus wants to forcibly silence the Androsphere because ‘they will damage the goodwill we have built with feminists’.

    Yes, he is that deluded.

    Many women pass the CET, some just need two tries just like the men. The decision to eliminate it’s pass/fail nature completely undermines the extremely valuable training because now it’s just a jog with Marine things involved. The value lied in the Student being forced to push him or herself past his or her limits and still demonstrating the mental capacity and technical proficiency leading Marines in combat requires. The standard has lowered, and it had nothing to do with getting more women through. It was because Marine Officers (especially reservists) were essentially getting drafted into the Infantry and showed they didn’t want to be there or didn’t belong there during the CET. It looks like the days of IOC being impervious to quotas in favor of putting enlisted Marines in the hands of ONLY the most capable and tested officers are over.

Like your drill instructor pointed out, it’s all fun and games until the killing starts.

    But like I said, the women are just in it for the goodies. When the shooting starts they’re going to deliberately get pregnant and wait out the war in the rear with the gear spending their free time getting rank and authority over the men who are doing the actual fighting and dying. It’s why I’m 100 percent in favor of mandatory birth control for all female military personnel during time of war as well as pushing them into front line units per capita. No codependency, only brutal equality.

    The churches I have attended over the last few years love TGC and have had many of them come over here ( New Zealand- we may be small but Hillsong, C3 etc all launched here….)
    Wakanda
    ” Some of the key theological themes include the emptiness of ancestral worship, the devastating effects of sin, the temptation of the oppressed to become the oppressor, the beautiful complementarianism portrayed in the film, and the resurrection of the king to overthrow the evil strongman”

    “. I was speaking about the way T’Challa led with courage and compassion, and the way the women thrived under his leadership in a way that was not demeaning, but empowering. This subject is obviously deep and has many nuances and considerations, ”

    That is what he said.
    It just made me sad – it confirmed to me that at least Piper etc were against women trying to be men
    the younger generation of Pastors who supposedly believe in Christ believe that real leaders allow women to run the military and thrive….

    So no link sorry, but am sure one of the TGC pastors will eventually come out publicly and state his support for it… (ILL out him when he publicly states it!0
    Most of my pastors in traditional churches believe this anyway, they train the younger men to be domestic and women to achieve their dreams- starts in youth group

    I started questioning my church when I – started reading this blog- you have opened my eyes! but also when my pastor said that during marriage counselling he tells all men that asking your wife to ‘get toy a beer ” or “get stuff done for himself” is sinful and selfish

    I have seen wives publicly telling husbands off though for not making coffee or not cooking enough- encouraging them to be house husbands

    Christian women….
    always happens at bible study
    @freebird
    unfortunately the new world order does not see it that way
    Asians believe was is about land and power and colonization- complete takeover/surrender of local population and spread of attacker culture is definitely on their minds….
    2020-2030 will be an interesting decade- already Elementary and high school students outside the USA believe that USA is no more the most powerful nation….

    if War was really about business the USA would have taken over Afghanistan by now and established a colony- the returns on investment would have been way larger than the military-industrial complex
    but they cant because starving goat farmers and goat f***ers have been out maneuvering the so called powerful Americans for 25 years….

    Patriarchal/masculine societies have always outmaneuvered feminist societies/matriarchies

    bdash 77: I have lived in the west for 10 years now in every house I have never seen a woman make coffee for her husband, not even once. always the other way around

    I remember the 1992 presidential election, when Hillary Clinton, asked about her law career, famously sneered, “I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies.”

    Back in 1992, it was still acceptable to challenge a woman about having both a career and a child. Hillary’s “You Go Grrrrl!” attitude helped put another nail in that coffin.

    @ Scott

    Reminds me of Hezekiah. He was a great man, but had a couple serious flaws, and that was one of them.

    2 Kings 20:16 Then Isaiah said to Hezekiah, “Hear the word of the Lord: 17 ‘Behold, the days are coming when all that is in your house, and what your fathers have accumulated until this day, shall be carried to Babylon; nothing shall be left,’ says the Lord. 18 ‘And they shall take away some of your sons who will descend from you, whom you will beget; and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon.’”

    19 So Hezekiah said to Isaiah, “The word of the Lord which you have spoken is good!” For he said, “Will there not be peace and truth at least in my days?”

    It was only “peace keeping” in Sariavo but we soon learned to carry more than the official combat load in our rucks. Resupply was sketchy at best and a few days rats and extra ammo belt sure made one feel better.

    This related article is fascinating to read. Several notable personalities of the feminist charge in the U.S. military, including Army Colonel Ellen Haring, as well as backlash criticism within the Marines by Marine 2nd Lt. Emma Stokien.

    Have Standards Eroded Already?

    When the Marine Corps Times reported what it described as a “slight change” to the Infantry Officer Course, TECOM officials said that the average attrition rate for the CET between 2012 and 2017 was less than 3 percent,” and in 2017 less than 1 percent failed the test. These comments raise serious questions: Have CET standards eroded already?

    C.J. Chivers of the New York Times, who had passed the CET himself in 1988, visited the course in July 2012. Chivers described infantry trainees suffering bloody feet and mind-blurring exhaustion, and noted that 76 out of 96 Marines passed – an attrition rate of 20 percent. [4]

    In July 2013, Washington Post military reporter Dan Lamothe visited the Infantry Officer Course and followed two female officers who were attempting to succeed on the first-day Combat Endurance Test. [5] One of the women and five men fell too far behind to continue and the other became the first of about 30 spirited female officers who failed the test. Lamothe reported, “In total, 61 lieutenants passed the CET this month, and 18 failed. . . . The attrition rate at IOC typically is about 20 to 25 percent. Of those, about half do not make it past the CET.”

    In a 2014 report about three female trainees who did pass the CET, Anna Mulrine of the Christian Science Monitor reported similar high attrition rates on the Infantry Officer Course. [6] One hundred Marines attempted the CET, wrote Mulrine, but only 70 passed – an attrition rate of 30 percent.

    Either the New York Times, Washington Post, and Christian Science Monitor got their numbers wrong, or something has changed at the CET, ensuring that almost everyone will pass.

    The practice really is not kind to women. Comprehensive Marine research in 2015 found that women are two- to six-times as likely to be injured in training, especially when marching under loads and performing heavy tasks that average men accomplish easily. [7] “Revalidating” infantry standards sets up women for debilitating injuries and failure, not career success.

  77. OKRickety says:

    bdash 77 said: “( New Zealand- we may be small but Hillsong, C3 etc all launched here….)

    Technically, it seems both Hillsong and C3 (who I had never heard of) were “launched” in Australia by Kiwis. It seems that Australians are easily led by Kiwis. That reminds me of a humorous putdown that I first heard when I lived in NZ:

    “Why don’t you move to Australia and raise the average IQ of both countries?”

  78. To understand who really has the attention of the US military brass and US Congress on such combat integration initiatives, it’s helpful to know names and faces. Here it is and here they are.
    The main champion of lowering military standards is wiisglobal.org and Dr. Chantal de Jonge Oudraat.

    I don’t think Black Pill accurately describes my stance. The term is used to mean different things by different people. The only constant among them is nihilism, which I hate. The whole Pill analogy fails me because pills don’t symbolism war. The words I’m looking for are like fire, iron, and blood.

    And that’s in training. Combat is far less kind. People (mostly men) actually try to shoot you, bomb you, set mines, booby traps and all kinds of devious devices to maim and/or kill you, etc.

    So, a man is always, absolutely wrong for hitting a woman, no matter what she does, but sending women off to be shot, blown up, or killed in all kinds of inventive ways by men is “empowering”. Makes perfect sense.

    “In a real war what will happen when tons of female soldiers melt towards the rear? Will they be punished as deserters?”

    That won’t happen. They’ll get pregnant just before they deploy, which makes them medically non-deployable. That already happens, and no, there’s no legal punishment for that.

  87. feeriker says:

    Yup. And speaking from direct experience as a retired Senior NCO, don’t even think of even obliquely suggesting any sort of negative sanction against a female service member for malingering (and that is exactly what these actions constitute, a UCMJ punishable offense that will end a man’s military career and might even result in imprisonment). The repercussions against you will be severe. The political machine that is top-level military “leadership” shits its collective pants at the thought of confronting women, let alone disciplining them.

    I thank God every day that I got out when I did. I cannot imagine any conscientious man being able to stand it today.

  88. Data suggests women in military service are having fewer children.
    interesting study here: 60 out of 1,000 women in military service had pregnancy incident:

    https://health.mil/News/Gallery/Infographics/2017/12/21/Pregnancies-and-live-births-among-female-service-members

    Women in the Marine Corps are either decidedly less promiscuous/sexually active, have less opportunities for sexual congress, or are more committed to actually taking their birth control compared to servicewomen in the Army, Navy and Air Force.

    Notice the typical age of these military new mothers – 30 to 34 years old.

  90. Lost Patrol says:

    @ constrainedlocus

    I read that chart as showing where the women of child bearing potential were located by service, not the ones that actually had a kid. That would make the numbers track fairly well with the percentage of women by service overall, since for now at least the Marines has a low percentage of females in total. Only the middle pie chart pertains to actual births to those women, if I’m reading it right.

    Speaking as a field grade officer currently on reserve status, I confirm feeriker’s comment.

  95. American says:

    Lower all the standards so females can qualify for the goodies and then 85 percent of those who haven’t already positioned themselves in leadership positions in the rear with the gear magically become pregnant when the war starts while the men do the fighting and dying as usual. A handful that don’t will be used as “proof” the rest didn’t even though they most certainly will.

    It will end with the women running the military from the rear, enjoying all the perks and goodies, while ordering men to do the killing and dying if enough men side with them to allow it to get to that point.

  96. My old roomate said the same thing when I was living in San Francisco. He was a Desert Storm / Desert Shield army vet. He said in the summer of 1990 when deployment was announced, just about every woman in his batalion suddenly (gasp) got pregnant!!! Most if not all were not married!

    Before Desert Shield, he said daily he had to hear from women and CO’s about about “women can do anything a man can in this army”

    Deployment came…..and suddenly….well, they could do anything except die for their country….that’s a mans job evidently

  99. mgtowhorseman says:

    Ok so lets say women make up 15% of troops: combat, logistics, medical, c3.

    Bang!

    Shooting war starts and magically 80%+ of women are pregnant or other waiver.

    Combat strength is now down 10% plus. That is an entire company out of a full regiment!

    And because its a shooting war you have to deploy now not in 12 weeks, if you can recruit/draft replacements and get them thru basic, battle school. Even longer for the specialties like armour or arty never mind the zoomies.

    So you go into battle with every regiment down a full company. A division would be down an entire brigade!

    How does this fall out for the troops that are left?

  100. mgtowhorseman says:

    Or another way. A carrier battle group has to put to sea down an Aegis and an attack sub in her screen.

  101. cynthia says:

    @jason

    I have no official stats to point to, but when I was active duty in the early 20-teens, casual estimates thrown around were that something like 10% of all deployed females got pregnant while on deployment and had to be sent home early. At that point, it’s intentional. It’s also easy to time out a pregnancy to dodge a deployment, since taskings are usually on a predictable schedule and you get a four-month deployment eligibility freeze after you give birth.

    In related news, some liberal women I’m unfortunately acquainted with thought that the female pregnancy battle uniform was a great thing, because it clearly meant that we have pregnant women downrange and “you can still fight the war!” They got more than a little upset when I explained that we bring them home if they get pregnant. Absolutely bizarre.

    The data somebody posted with 30-34 being the largest group of pregnant women in the service makes sense to me. At that point, an enlisted female is probably in the middle of her second contract. A female officer is likewise eligible to get out after she hits her service commitment in her late twenties. She’d be on her third to fourth duty assignment, and if in a mil-mil marriage, at the point where hard decisions have to be made about careers. I knew a number of women who spent five to six years at different bases from their husbands, and who had just enough connections or experience to finagle themselves a joint assignment, again, usually early thirties. It’s also about then that you see career burn-out with women, regardless of career, and this is a much harder lesson in the military than civilian jobs. Early thirties is your last good opportunity to jump ship with your fertility even slightly intact. It’s about when you could have kids, as it’s the point where you start working on an exit plan.

    I know a number of military women who misjudged this window, and ended up single and childless.

    The 1990s TV sitcom, WIngs, had a female character, Alex (note the male name), who had been a combat helicopter pilot during the Gulf War.

    In this scene, the two guys try to impress Alex at the gym. Alex casually mentions her Army career.

    The official position is that this has nothing to do with making sure more women get in the pipeline, it’s that too many weak men are failing the course. You should believe this because, of the three photos we’ve selected to use with the article only two feature a kick ass woman.
