What's going on in the world

Figured the DB could use a running thread for topics and things going on that aren't cut out for their own threads.

I guess women only want equality when it's convenient.

Physical fitness testing suspended for all Colorado Springs police officers

That means the 12 policewomen also can wear their uniforms again and return to full patrol duty instead of the light-duty, plainclothes desk work they had been relegated to for not passing the annual Physical Abilities Test.
Quote:
According to the lawsuit, 35 percent of the department's women in that demographic and less than 2 percent of the male officers failed the test in September 2014, the first time it was administered. They then were subject to punitive measures.

The Marines didn't train women to be infantrymen because the average/above average 20-something female couldn't throw a hand grenade far enough to be outside the kill circle when it went off.

This season really should be mandatory across the nation. It might help to curb the insanity.


Safe space pretty much sums up this police officer fitness test. People don't want to be told they're not in shape, even if it's their job to be so.

This is dumb. Men and women aren't physical equals on average. Women need to get over it

Race isn't real and there certainly isn't any difference intellectually between ethnicities.

I'm sure there are some "women" that could pass that physical test.

They do crusaders. We curve the outcome for people intellectually. You can't find one scientist that will tell you ethnicities are equal when it comes to intelligence. Asians are the smartest people on Earth, no ifs, buts or ands about it.

A smart man would just claim to be transgendered and not have to take the PT test. What I would have given to have the female standards on my military PTs.

You really can't up your iq with curriculum. Studies also show American Asians score exactly what Eadt Asians score on IQ test.

Yes you can. Socioeconomic factors plays the biggest role.

I am not, if you could find one reputable study that disagrees with me please post it. In fact I challenge anyone to do so. My point is, if it's ok to curve intelligence, then why not curve physical performance also.

Big place.

James Woods is more intelligent than Einstein. Not sure there's a point to be made by your claim, true or not other than to consider the intelligence test is man-made.

OK, then...

IQ tests are not reliable (link).

If IQ scores were so great at determining and predicting intelligence, why aren't high-IQ-based societies, like MENSA, consulted as an authority on...anything? They're not, because IQ tests are junk and do not predict much of anything.

So, right off the bat, we can disregard the very methodology that is at the heart of your argument.

Next, because race isn't biologically real (link) we can disregard any correlation there might be between IQ (an unreliable test) and race (a method of othering based on perceived differences).

Finally, even if race was real and IQ tests/scores were valid, we know that socioeconomic factors play a part in scores. A great example of how socioeconomics matters is right in the USA. African Americans used to score, on average, 15 points below Caucasians. Today, it's 10 points. Why? Well, AA have greater access to education today (link).

I'm just waiting for the first time a male "switches" genders and claims he/she now has the right to play women's sports and obtain a scholarship

It's not education that increases iq, I attribute the rise along with most scientist due to diets which affects brain development, along with mixing with other races.

Diets have improved for the majority of people since the early 20th century. That doesn't account for a 5 point increase.

Also, black kids adopted by white families do better than white kids adopted by black families.

IQ test doesn't matter anyway. Nothing else to say here.

They don't matter because most people have jobs that require a 70 iq.

Ok let's get back on point.

Why is it ok to adjust intellectual scores but not physical scores?
