Marine Corps Compares Male Vs. Mixed-Gender Military Teams – Here Are The Results…

Women became honorable military servants when in 2013 a ban that previously prevented them from serving was lifted.

Since then the Marine Force have been doing an “unprecedented research effort” to analyze the gender issue and how important it was military-wise. 

The analysis was called the Ground Combat Element Integrated Task Force, and it included 400 Marines, 100 of which were women,  of them female, were given the opportunity to get war training and acquired a simulated deployment. In the process every bit and piece of their life, and ability mindset was put to test.

The deadline for this test was due to January 1, 2016. Shortly after, the marine Corpse released the official report, stating that male warfare teams surpassed mixed-gender teams on around 69% of the given assignments.

Here is what else the report found:

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. For example, when negotiating the wall obstacle, male Marines threw their packs to the top of the wall, whereas female Marines required regular assistance in getting their packs to the top. 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)

In addition, the report noted that females serving the Army were more prone to getting injured.

It is also important to know that males have already been faced with military training in their younger years, while females came from domestic surroundings, never to have experienced such training.

The fact is that by paying more attention to the female training, we can build an equal Army, which will keep America and its soldiers safe. Until this happens though, the idea of putting lives on the line just for the sake of granting wishes, is absurd.

    I WOULD HAVE TO AGREE TO SOME PARTS BUT THERE ARE SO PARTS OF ANY JOB SOME MEN DO BETTER AS DO WOMEN IN SOME JOB. IT REALLY DEPENDS ON THE INDIVIDUALS ABILITY AND THE ENDURANCE WITHIN THE BODIES IN HOW WELL BUILT. THAT NEEDS TO MAKE AN ACCOUNT OF THEIR PERFORMANCE

    Women should not be policemen or combat soldiers. Common sense proves it to be true. I’ve been in some bar fights and realized I needed either a gun or a baseball to come out alive. I was 170 lb. Lifted weights. Taught boxing.
    I see some policewoman who might weight 135 lb. 5 ft. 7 inch tall. What chance does she have with a 240 lb. Drunk crazed truck driver. Her poor partner has to carry all the heavy wieght.
    For goodness sake a woman is NOT equal to a man. Get these women out of our police departments and combat units now.
