I have no dog in this fight. If a woman can pass the same tests as a man thers is no logical reason to deny her a position based on the same. If someone can reach X standard it should not matter what color they are, what sex they are, etc.

Again, if they decide there are different standards for women I would assume (but not know) that there could be safety issues. Would you prefer lower standards for black doctors? Women lawyers?
