“Hypothetically speaking, if a female soldier carries 70 pounds of equipment five miles and exerts the same effort as a male carrying 100 pounds of equipment the same distance, the differing standards could be viewed as gender-neutral because both exerted the same amount of effort, with differing loads.”
Yeah, I suppose they could be viewed as ‘gender nuetral.’
Likewise, a horse carrying 200 lbs 5 miles and a chipmunk carrying an acorn 5 miles could be called something like ‘species neutral.’

Well I guess that makes sense........same exertion while doing less work =
same faster promotions and pay. Makes perfect sense for a military force. 10

(What good are conservative principles if we don't stand by them?)
do they make allowances for guys who weigh differently? A 120 lb guy should carry the same as a 220 lb guy, right?
Or how about two guys of the same weight but one is heavily muscled?
