Argo, are you going to provide any counter-argument, or just lurk in the shadows and down vote every post that doesn't fit the desired narrative?

Standard SJW response is to yell and act offended while offering no logical reason for doing so. Our country has created a generation of retards.

I am so offended by the usage of the word retard. I prefer to be called mentally handicapped, mentally challenged, or dumbass.

I thought that was just standard for that side of this argument.

"You don't want women in line combat roles because of any number of legitimate reasons and my rebuttal is Sexism! Sexism!

You know what my daughter says? She says, ‘That’s sexist.’ They just want to use these words: 'That’s racist'; 'That’s sexist'; 'That’s prejudice.' They don’t know what they’re talking about.

  The only question that should be answered by the leadership is;  Does this action /policy strengthen or weaken our armed forces.?  The answer is obvious and this liberal, feel good idea should have never been entertained much less implemented.

The Office of the Acting Undersecretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness has received plans from each of the services for implementing Secretary Carter's December 3rd decision to open all positions in the military to women with no exceptions. [...] The services and Special Operations Command will begin to execute the implementation of their approved plans as soon as practicable, but no later than April 1st. [...] the secretary acknowledges it's going to take some time before we may see women in some of these positions. This is the beginning of a process, and [...] the implementation of these plans.

If the standards don't work.....just change the standard.  For guys, I'm thinking not much will change regarding standards.

Well...   If there's a different standard for men & women, isn't that what we're all always bitching about on here to begin with?

From reading the article, it doesn't sound like anyone's advocating allowing women to get heavier than men--but, rather, to increase the limit (maybe to whatever the limit is for men?) in recognition that whatever limit is in place may not be realistic for a woman who is working out to deliberately bulk up, so better to perform her military duties.  There will never be an apples-to-apples comparison so long as there are "men's standards" and "women's standards"; I don't think this is in the same category as lowering a standard on, say, how much weight a Marine needs to be able to carry a specified distance (which I believe is part of their test?)....
