Gender sanity in Queensland.

The Queensland Government has introduced new physical tests for would-be firefighting recruits, resulting in only 2 of 56 recent successful candidates being women.

Will that make the female Premier a misogynist?

Not before time has Queensland decide to rectify the stupid PC feminist nonsense that put lives at risk. Women who can pass the same test as men will still be welcome.

Next? How about those built-for-ballet five foot nothing female police officers.

Hey ttbn,

"Gender sanity in Queensland."

Well we can only hope.
Any step in the right direction is good I suppose.
- But it seems like an uphill and mostly futile battle when those who call the shots see things differently.

AC,

I'll read the article later,thanks, but this from the Minister is interesting:

".... organisations that embrace all forms of diversity and inclusion outperform those that donítĒ.

I suppose we are supposed to believe that just because it's said. No proof follows, just a bald statements attached to the buzz word "diversity". I suppose it's as OK for women to be involved in back room jobs as it is for men. But when it comes to front line stuff like police and fire and military it is plainly ridiculous.

ttbn, of the other 54 who were not women, how many of you 'Crusty Old Farts' were successful? The 2 women must have been rather healthy, considering a lot of good men try, and a lot of good men fail when it comes to joining the 'Fireies'.

Oh haven't the lefties been preaching that gender is a social construct! Oh well hypocrisy on hypocrisy. Surely if you are being pulled out of a fire you would want someone strong enough to do so. Then 'gender' equality wins in most cases over your life.

runner,

The "lefties" preach all sorts of rubbish, never consistent, just what suits them at the time.

Of course we need to know that firefighters, police and soldiers are physically capable of defending us - and themselves. The Queensland government has belatedly recognised this, and has changed the requirements. In the last intake, two women proved that they could handle the requirements, and they will be able to do the job properly. The political bigotry of some people here blinds them to the realities of life - one being the obvious differences between men and women. There are women physically capable of emulating men, but they are a very small minority. One of my daughters is among them, still hefty and strong in her 50's
