Quick, simple Question about females and weight

#1
no i believe that they carry a reduced weight however engineers carry a higher weight than RLC etc so they might carry the same weight as you lot
he he
 
#2
most of the ones i've seen are carrying more weight than the blokes...

some have trouble crossing an MGB unless it's got pier and link installed


(aaaaaaargh pier and link....flashback....going to lay in a dark room until the clanging in my head stops)

normally they can start off quite slender when they join BUT they soon get issued their ARRSE & the then they get issued the worlds biggest set of cbt 95 trs to shoe-horn said ARRSE into.

this appears to be the case across every cap badge within the army along with the raf/navy working toward army standards.

Jesus this depresses me, the blind leading the blind. One fcuking bone, loaded, question followed by an equally bone and fcuking wrong answer. Information superfuckinghighway? More like information mongbahn.

All RE personnel carry 20Kg of kit during the CFT, irrespective of race, colour, creed, gender, trade, rank or sexual orientation, unless they are parachute or commando roled, in which case they carry 25Kg like proper people. It says so here.

that would be correct. and obviously i meant corps. we're not septics.

before i recieve a load of incomming......i never met any female sapper who could pull their weight on ANY bridge. The age old argument of 'yes, but some blokes can't do it either' doesn't wash, cos in an ideal world they would be sacked too. And if anyone wants to know what qualifies me to make this judgement.....I TRAINED plenty.

If people don't like my honesty then i am sorry, but that's life.

You are dinosaur and a c*ck
If you don’t like my honesty see above

you are entitled to your opinions as i am mine. I formed my opinion during my time TRAINING men and women in special to arms B2 COMBAT ENGINEERING (No women on the B1 courses that I ran at that time). All I am saying is that in the Military Engineer Role (from MY experience of combat engineering gleaned when I WAS IN THE FIELD ARMY for a fair few years) I thought that the females I trained were not capable of constructing a twenty bay double story with sling link and pier (an example). MY OPINION gleaned by my EXPERIENCES. To certain trades they are probably suited, yes. CBT ENGR I FEEL is not one of them. What qualifies you CARRP to make what I can only describe as childish, uneducated and downright rude remarks as you have? Because I tell you now boy, if you said it to my face you would find out just how much of a dinosour I really am.

green goblin, fair point and well presented. I think that if students (regardless of sex) were evaluated without external (figures) pressure then few if any women would have passed, and quite frankly MANY men would have failed also. Obviously things have changed since my day.

Sorry to get back onto CARRP, but you don't even know me. To call me a c*ck based soley on the honesty of my opinion really makes you sound like a rude little runt.

Females may shine in other areas that men don't. I can't express my opinion lol.. all I can say is that in Cadets, x% of the females complain, and I simply tell them that they joined at it's what to expect, but then again about x% of the waste of space males complain aswell

This ‘Boy’ :D and ‘rude little runt’ :D :D has nearly 25 (fair few) years experience of the field army and is still serving, and is quite frankly fed up of seeing females who make up ever increasing numbers of our ever diminishing army deploying on Operations in all roles (that they are allowed to) constantly being criticised for not being up to the Job (my EXPERIENCES).

A bad soldier is a bad soldier regardless of gender and for every bad female soldier there are plenty of good ones (likewise with the young blokes to).

Since the Royal Engineers started recruiting females only a handful of regulars (there are lots of female TA RE) have passed out through 3 Regt (Spr J**es being the first to succeed IICR), this is because of the stringent physical tests before selection to the Corps where the female has to achieve EXACTLY the same standard as the men (jerry can carry & lift etc), as they do with the weight they carry on the CFT (with regard to another thread).

But you would know all this because in your words you “trained PLENTY” of that handful I spoke of above.

As you would know that class 2 qualified by a period of ‘in house’ refresher training followed by a multi choice examination approx 12 months after their class 3 (AR, JL or apprentice dependant), not a formal course at Gib (however that was probably a Typo).

Lastly, you readily admit that plenty of blokes would fail if they were stringently assessed after previously saying that “The age-old argument of 'yes, but some blokes can't do it either' doesn't wash”, which is a slightly confusing argument.

So my sincere apologies for calling you a c*ck, however with regard to being a dinosaur, If the cap fits….

If a PERSON passes all the criteria and is not barred from a particular arm or service, they should be given every opportunity to be allowed to attempt to succeed without prejudice or malice, but hey, that’s just my opinion

If people don’t like my honesty then I am sorry, but that’s life

OK, perhaps you're new. By now you'll have realised it was a bone question because you've opened the door to another "Splitarses aren't as good as blokes and never will be" thread, which is just what we need :roll: .

:D :D :D :D :D :D :D Nope, my sense of humour seems to be working fine. Not sure about yours though. Didn't ickle keeffy like being called "bone"? All together now: aaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

I look at it this way, if Doris' can do the job (trade, cbt engr etc) to the required standards then welcome to the Corps. If they can't they can do one, and that goes for any of the other useless feckers we seem to have accumulated (regardless of gender).
 
#19
CAARP, fair point, and nice apology for the c*ck analogy. Yes it was a typo, meant B3. I will accept that there are roles for females in the RE, however I will not budge on combat engineer streams, but I have been out a few years now. I would like to finish off by saying that despite my opinions on this, i am by no means sexist. I work in a very demanding 'operational' role and some of my finest colleagues are women (a lot far more able than i), and i am married to one.

Fair one mate,

We will have to agree to disagree

I was always pin man (actually inside pin mans bag carrying mans assistant due to a massive Troop) because I am HUGE :D :D :D
