Here we go again, putting peoples lives in danger for the sake of political correctness.

It's more like living in the GDR with the Stasi, where people are too afraid to say things due to fear.

Saddest part the people that will die because she won't be able to do her job on time will never know that if she was a guy they would have been saved.

The lives of civilians, fellow firefighters and the candidate herself - unbelievable retardedness.

How many people will die because women were given jobs based not on their ability to save lives and pass basic proficiency requirements, but based on their genitalia and feelings? There are jobs were a lack of strength and skill literally costs people their lives. Can we at least limit the equal-outcome fantasyland stuff for less serious careers?

Well, the person making this decision, to hire without actual standards, is stupid,

He was forced to by law

These same people are being put into power. So it is more likely it has already happening, and will continue to happen.

I'm female and I agree that this is stupid. I'll stick to IT, where I don't have to compete in physical fitness.

This is why we cannot hire people based on race and gender quotas. It just lowers the overall standard. If these people genuinely pass, then great. But hiring based on quotas is always a fucking mistake. And the court should have no business mandating this crap

As a firefighter who has worked with females, you have no idea how accurate your statement is.

Physics does not give a fuck about your gender.

I REPEAT: PHYSICS DOES NOT GIVE A FUCK ABOUT YOUR GENDER.

IF YOU ARE PHYSICALLY INCAPABLE OF LIFTING A 200 POUND MAN IN A FIREMAN'S CARRY THEN YOU ARE PHYSICALLY INCAPABLE OF SAVING HIS LIFE IN THIS MANNER.

Seriously, what are they going to do with her? If they make her stay outside and manage the hose, everyone will call them sexist. If they send her in with a team to rescue people trapped in the building, and she dies, or worse, gets her team-mates or the civilians killed because she couldn't perform at the same level, they'll be blamed for letting her on in the first place!

Jesus fucking christ, I'm all for women in the work place, I'm all for women fighting in the military, but for fuck's sake if you can't physically do the job then YOU ARE NOT CUT OUT FOR THE JOB. Sorry, I know you had your heart set on being a Fire Fighter, lady, but your genetics screwed you and PHYSICS DOES NOT CARE. REALITY DOES NOT BEND TO YOUR FEELINGS.

GOD DAMN IT CAN THIS COUNTRY DO ANYTHING, ANYTHING AT ALL, WITHOUT MAKING ME FEEL LIKE I'M TAKING CRAZY PILLS!?!?

Fuck it, it's drinkin' time.

They'll do what they did when she was previously injured, give her a desk job.

$80+k desk job as a "firefighter". Making twice as much as most families just for being black and pretending to be a firefighter

Dangerous for the people trapped in a fire, and dangerous for the irresponsible bitch that fought to be allowed to work on the field.

Hope that the judge house burns and she is sent to attend the emergency, to see how pleased the judge is with his decision.
