Um my niece is in the Marines and she told me that they DO have different requirements for males and females in bootcamp.

It goes from the number of crunches to how far they have to run. Some of the requirements are the same .. but most of them are pared down for females so I don't know what this article is talkimg about.

didnt read much… 

but i don't think the standards should be the same for women… men are so different.. 
but i do think it should be challenging.. i don't think 3 pull ups is enough.. even if they're trained killers.. without the right conditioning they'll (probably) fail on the front lines during a fight.. 3 pull ups is not challenging enough. 
its like how you have to get all types of conditioning for boxing and krav maga (which they're taught) if you don't have the stamina and other tools that go with learning to defend yourself.. you'll fall way short. 
they should have to do more like 10 pull ups..

forgive my ignorance, but is this not what bootcamp is for? To get you ready for the test?
So who slacked off in bootcamp to where they cant do 3 pullups?
Everything should be the same. Combat is indiscriminate. Like someone else said, if u cant make it, find another day job

Real talk, I think that physical challenges are not that demanding.
 
I mean I can do two pull ups at the moment with no bootcamp training.

8 is considered a perfect score so three is the minimum which is barely passing.
