    The U.S. Army, apparently interested in furthering its recent journey into wokeness, is considering a policy called a "compassionate reassignment" permitting soldiers to request a transfer to a different area if they feel state or local laws discriminate against them because of their gender.

    In addition to gender, sex, religion, race or pregnancy could be cited as discriminatory by the service member looking to move.

    "The policy would ostensibly sanction soldiers to declare that certain states are too racist, too homophobic, too sexist or otherwise discriminatory to be able to live there safely and comfortably," Military.com reported.

    The guidance under consideration would need approval from Army Secretary Christine Wormuth.

    "Some states are becoming untenable to live in; there's a rise in hate crimes and rise in LGBT discrimination," Lindsay Church, executive director of Minority Veterans of America, complained. "In order to serve this country, people need to be able to do their job and know their families are safe. All of these states get billions for bases but barely tolerate a lot of the service members."

    Jacob Thomas, communications director for Common Defense, said that troops "can't be forced to live in places where they aren't seen as fully human."

    In March, the U.S. Army revealed its new fitness test, called the Army Combat Fitness Test (ACFT), which changed requirements so that it boasts different scoring standards for men and women.

    Sergeant Major of the Army Michael Grinston, the service's top enlisted leader, declared, "I'm really proud we're moving forward; we're there; we're doing it."

    In most cases, the standards wound up lowered, "following a congressionally mandated report from Rand Corp, a Washington D.C.-based think tank, that found nearly half of the service's women could not pass earlier standards for the test," Military.com reported, adding, "The most significant changes to the six-event ACFT is that it no longer is meant to prepare soldiers for combat but instead built as a general fitness assessment."

    Military.com explained some differences in the expectations for men and women:

    For example, a female soldier between 17 and 21 years old now has to deadlift between 120 and 210 lbs. while a male soldier has to lift between 140 and 340 lbs. In that same age group, female soldiers have to run two miles between 23:22 and 15:29 minutes while male soldiers must perform that exercise between 22 and 13:22 minutes.
