I don't have a dog in the fight. I live in Detroit and our FD just let %$$# burn until it's out anyway. We can have fat men and women do that job easy
enough I suppose.
I find it comical that people can make so many excuses to "pass" a female that fails the unfair
standards while somehow ignoring the thousands
of males that have failed the same standards.
White male fails to make standard - he didn't prepare
anyone else fails to make standard - standard is biased towards white males
All the intelligence in the world won't carry gear up 12 flights of stairs in a fire. All the good intentions in a persons heart will not carry
another person down six flights of stairs in a fire.
Some jobs are physically demanding
. These jobs cannot be done by the average "joe/jane" and should not be given to anyone because they "want to
be one the team". Merit based occupations demand merit.
I have a serious suspicion that 100% of the people that want this woman passed are like me = they do not live in NY and will not have their lives in
her unqualified hands.
