Lowering the Standards

Here we go, in opening up battlefield positions to females, there is talk of lowering the standards. From Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff:

If we do decide that a particular standard is so high that a woman couldn’t make it, the burden is now on the service to come back and explain to the secretary, why is it that high? Does it really have to be that high?”

Do we really need to hold our guys (and soon gals) to one high standard?
