These women are not equal, but they want to be told they're equal, so that when someone else tells them the lie they want to hear, they can tell themselves it must be true. Some years ago, I saw a similar TV program - a 'firefighter olympics' kind of show. Two wooden towers, four storeys high, one for each competitor. Two men competing first, had to pick up a fifty foot fire hose, run to the top of the tower, attach the hose, deploy it down the side, then run back down. Once at the bottom, they had to stand on a platform with a sledge hammer and swing at a block of steel to move it three feet, then run fifty feet over the finish line - all this was done in full firefighter gear. The men did the whole task in about two and a half minutes.

Then, they paired a woman against a man - one on each tower again, because, you know, 'equality'. The man finished the whole task in about two and a half minutes again. The woman - who was already employed by a fire department somewhere - struggled just to get the hose off the ground and onto her shoulder. She staggered up the stairs of the tower, dropping the hose several times along the way, struggling more to pick it back up again. She finally got it up there, and stumbled back down the steps. When it came to the sledge hammer, she could not budge the steel block. Not one inch. When the timing clock hit TEN MINUTES, a male came over and knocked the steel block three feet for her, and another male came along so that both of them could carry her over the finish line. She then held up her arms in victory as if she had done it. This is what's coming to save you.

It's amazing isn't it? The dedication to the delusion. Saw one, craptube, I'll try and find. Anyway, it's a 14KM hike (or distance thereabouts). Male / female troops. Fatigues, backpacks, rifles. They're filming the one female who is about to finish. Legs of jello as soon as she saw the finish. Collapsed a couple of times, had a drill sgt. barking at her head on the ground. They help her and basically carry across the line (if I'm remembering right). The thing is though.... Right at the beginning of the clip, as their focusing in on the Private Benjimen, there, one of the males strolled by the shot, photo bomb style, looked like he was at the mall. With a gun. Don't think the filmer realized what it revealed.

@Drums McBashington: LOL at that guy you mentioned who's shrugging it off like its all just a walk to the fridge to get a beer, and not even the slightest indication that any effort whatsoever is required - that female medic looked like she was going to die. Naturally, the female announcer is making out like she's a hero for no other reason than because she barely, barely managed to get across the finish line - you have to wonder what would have happened if there weren't something like 6 to 8 people cheering her on - she'd have to do it in combat, where no one is cheering and the enemy is trying to kill her. smh.

@CoffeeCat: Let alone the fact that: Hikes aren't for trophies in war. They're for travel, to new locations where there is activities to perform. What good is this soldier? In her medical capacity or any other? The enemy could dispatch this troop by gently pinching her nose closed, and cutting off her air, as she lies there unable to function because of walking. There was a vid, haven't seen it for a while, Israeli Army, mandatory, 47% of female soldiers are wounded in training. Fighting themselves, gravity, shadows, who knows. On Vet disability, never even left the base.
