Funny, @Nightmare515 were having a discussion of the new Army ACFT and today I came across this article confirming what he said about female soldier's failure rate. Army Combat Fitness Test Fiasco! Slides Reveal 84% of Women Failing ACFT The only thing that fails harder than the ACFT are the soldiers forced to take it. According to the numbers, a jaw-dropping 36% of soldiers overall failed the test, with 64% passing. When you break it down by gender, 70% of men passed. But here is a number should kill and bury the ACFT evermore: 84% of women failed the test. Those numbers are so absurdly biased against women that I was afraid this was some sort of elaborate joke by Duffelblog. Here is where it gets really ugly. If 84% of women are failing this test—keep in mind, 84% of women who are in battalions specifically preparing for the ACFT—you have essentially eliminated women from the United States Army. I honestly can't believe the Army would let a test that would eliminate 84% of female soldiers get this far, but it looks like it's happening. Eventually this is going to hit the national news, and it's going to be treated as a scandal.
