CNN’s O’Brien tricks opponent of women in combat into endorsing racial segregation

Panelist Kingsley Browne, author of the book Co-Ed Combat: The New Evidence that Women Shouldn’t Fight the Nation’s Wars, said that he believes that women are inherently weaker than men, and that their inclusion on the field of battle will erode “unit cohesion,” the same rhetorical shiv that was used by opponents of LGBT personnel being allowed to serve openly in the military.

Browne argued to the panel that because there is “very little overlap in physical capacity between men and women,” the U.S. military will be forced to lower its standards for physical performance, a move that the Army already made two years ago, but not for women. In 2010, the military lowered its physical fitness standards to allow for the number of obese and out-of-shape men who were turning up for basic training.
