I’m only guessing here but that’s probably an upgrade and not an accessory for the base model.

Bro...
I am sure in a diverse and inclusive new world we can forgive your horrible use of the word "chick" as terrible micro-aggression because you are clearly struggling with having to accept that 60 points are equal to 60 points but a few of your comments provide teachable moments that shouldn't be lost...

"They" have always "had" a penis. Just because the birth doctor didn't see one doesn't mean it wasn't there. Words like penis and vagina are social constructs created by the patriarchy as a way of exploiting others and thus controlling the means of production down through the ages.

For some people, it takes time for the penis to 'become' - some of these heroes are born with a void where their penis only exists virtually. These people are what we call heroes. They go through life cursed with a front hole that prevents the penis from becoming - punished by brutal patriarchy set on forcing them to accept traditional gender roles. Other heroes emerge from the womb encumbered by a bothersome phallus that prevents them from winning a bike race or destroying an MMA opponent. These heroes spend decades waiting to realize their dreams reaching the highest levels of competitive womens sports.
Some of them even take courageous steps to grow into adulthood and win women's beauty pageants unencumbered by the distraction of traditional genitalia.

The ACFT will fix this. It will finally allow the "equality of outcome" never before thought possible by people trapped inside of their small-thinking western minds. It's great-minded people like these that inspired the creation of "Box" as a standalone gender reeking of diversity, inclusion, and awesomeness.

...and why is it always called an "Adam's" apple?
Did Adam encounter the serpent alone and unafraid?
Did Adam climb the tree to claim the apple?
no - Eve did.

It is an Eve's-apple - show some respect.

Think this is actual wrong also in this woke era,
It would be more appropriate to say the Partnership's Apple. If indeed they are partners.
One Human had possession of said apple then the other ate it.

I am open-minded and always ready to adjust my opinions when confronted with a choice between subjective truth and objective morality - you are correct in your analysis and contextual representation of our current paradigm as it relates to any given degree of "woke"

I would counter that given our current socio-political landscape we might be able to agree to a compromise with a much more globally appropriate, "People's-Apple"

It’s fruit from the poisonous tree...one bad apple makes the rest of us guilty of something...when the “woke” crowd (and democrats) figures it out we’ll know what’s and who’s been canceled next.

P.S. if the “People’s Fruit” is anything like the “People’s House” it has a razor wire fence around it to keep the people both legal and illegal from entering.

Now from a GOP proponent website...

Army women flunking first try at ‘gender-neutral’ fitness test
Apr 8, 2021

The U.S. Army, currently stuck in a quagmire over a rigorous new physical fitness test, needs to get its act together and make sure soldiers are ready for combat, says a national security expert.

The rollout of the Army Combat Fitness Test in 2019 hit a roadblock when initial test scores showed 65% of women failed it compared to 10% of men.

The new ACFT replaced the Army’s three-event Army Physical Fitness Test, which graded soldiers according to sex and age, but the alarming failure rate caused an uproar among Democrat lawmakers who used a 2021 Pentagon spending bill to order a halt to scoring soldiers according to the new physical test. A study of the test is being done by the RAND Corp.

According to Stars and Stripes, the fitness exam is a six-event test that is patterned after the grueling CrossFit program with weights and barbells, medicine balls, kettle balls, and a 90-lb. sled to simulate dragging a wounded soldier.

The new test, which is meant to better simulate combat, includes a “leg tuck” station that 72% of women failed when they couldn’t raise their legs to to their chin. That failure rate forced the Army to subtitute a plank if a soldier failed at the leg tuck.

National security analyst Bob Maginnis of the Family Research Council says the new fitness test was designed to be a gender-neutral test, with the same requirements for both men and women, but four out of five women were failing it.

“This, of course, runs contrary to what Barack Obama put in place: Removing all exemptions for women in direct ground combat and some of the physically tough military occupational specialties out there,” Maginnis tells One News Now.

Obama ordered the Pentagon to open up front-line combat roles to women, including grueling infantry units and tip-of-the-spear special operations, sparking fears the armed forces would weaken its combat readiness to accommodate less-qualified females and thus get soldiers killed during grueling, exhausting combat.

During the phase-in period, the U.S. Marine Corps was the only branch to publicly speak out after its own testing showed female Marines were failing to keep up with males during rigorous combat simulation such as loading artillery shells and carrying a wounded Marine to safety.

According to Maginnis, the Biden administration is rolling out a far-left agenda for the U.S. armed forces at the same time the Army is attempting to get its soldiers, males and females, better prepared for combat.

“This is loony stuff,” Maginnis warns. “These people clearly have a radical agenda and it’s not in our best interest.”

-------
This is going to cause a lot of angst among the Baizuo. They'll lie down, just begin REM, and shoot awake with a start thinking that Boxen are coming for them. Then they'll realize they left the Ryoku on & it's just a re-run from Babes in Toyland.

Quelle horreur! The political weaponizing of the foibles of one of the 2 biological genders in the battle against the Wokers.

Gender Specific Standards

This is so much double speak from the military. If I am a Combat Arms soldier then I would expect any other Combat Arms soldier to meet the same standard that I have to meet. When people of the other gender proclaim that they are able to the same things as their opposite gender can they should have to prove it.

Army Mulls Returning to Gendered Fitness Standards over Complaints of 'Lopsided' ACFT

The Army is considering adding gender-specific standards to its new Army Combat Fitness Test, or ACFT, after early data shows nearly half of female soldiers can't pass the test and might face being removed from service once it becomes official next year.

"We expect all soldiers to meet the exact same minimum standards, regardless of age, gender, or occupational specialty," the trio said in their combined written testimony.
