yeah, i think something needs to be done about that than just saying men will be men and sweep the abuse under the carpet (not saying you are saying that)

and i think this is fine ... i think the physical tests are all bs and outdated ... more and more tests in some jobs are of actual instances people will find in the real world .. sure, it is easier to say do this many pushups etc .. but putting on all the gear and guns and making you do certain drills etc gives you a better idea of your actual strength ...
