My favourite example of this is that one case where they wanted female fighter pilot for the US navy. She died trying to land Tomcat on a carrier soon after. And I mean few months after that it was decided that she can try landing on carriers.

Investigations afterwards found out that she failed training in ways that would have seen her thrown out if she was a man.

You can have standards, or you can have affirmative action, but not both.
