if this is the future we are heading to then i am truly scared.....
Rebecca Wax wants to be a firefighter but she is over the age limit; (it is 29 but she is 33) so she cried to the city counsel which made the NYFD forced to raise the age limit to 35. so when the she didn't pass the fitiness test (more than once) she went back to City Council to complain to them about how the NYFD didn't let her be a firefighter just because she is a woman. so NYFD is forced to lower their test standards to avoid getting sue for sex discrimination. now if women pass 2 out of the 3 test even if they didn't pass the fitness test then they will become a firefighter...... now lives are in great risk...
all this because she wants to be a firefighter....

How is that acceptable? Even if face with the sexual discrimination ace, no(or at least i doubt any) city counsel worth it weight would bend over backwards on such a serious matter. Whats next under qualified doctors? Thats sarcasm, at least i hope it stays sarcasm.

But but...equality right?

Wow just wow

Hey guy's, "Let's lower the slandered to a job that requires physical strength to save life's because this one woman is complaining about it being "sexist" even though it's not,." Logic

The feminists have more power than I though.

America is pretty bad about favoring those who refuse to accept blame/responsibility. Everyone is sue happy or gets butthurt over any little thing. It's easier for a person to blame something/someone else than to own up to the fact that they failed or are a failure. Unless our society changes (and I highly doubt it would for this) don't expect that to go any other way. You see it a lot with things that require you to be in shape.

I agree due to her age, but why this article here and now with all the threads about feminism. NO. Stop. Wait. I already know! ;)

The mods shut down yet another thread about people complaining about these duplicate threads, citing it was the "wrong section" . I wonder what is on cable? Hmm. *click*

Ugh. For Real?

That's ridiculous.

I believe that only people with a physical strength like Takeo's should be accepted to work as a firefighter.

You're all worried about nothing, lame asses like her do not prosper in civil service. My guess is once she is assigned a firehouse they will stick her behind a desk somewhere or give her a radio and put her on the traffic accident brigade. If not that, they will make her so uncomfortable that she quits. No way will an FDNY engine company let someone who can't pass the skills test respond to a real emergency under any circumstances. Either way, this problem will sort itself out when given enough time, NYC Crunchyrollers your lives are safe. For now. Maybe.

The real problem is the reputation of the women who legitimately passed all the exams is now sullied, guilty by association. I would bet most of the girls in her class are livid about this, I can't wait to find out how the women(and men) in her firehouse are going to treat her. The rest of the women in the FDNY had to pass the old school standards and tests as well, meaning they had to hang with the men(why so few women are firefighters there). I don't think this person has any idea just what kind of environment she is entering.
