Female firefighters banned from burning buildings

This one boggles the mind.
A group of female firefighters in Florida have filed a discrimination complaint after they were temporarily banned from entering burning buildings.
The saddest thing about this story? The women weren’t banned from doing their job because of the run-of-the-mill discrimination that assumes women aren’t strong enough to be firefighters.
Fire and Rescue Chief Jamie D. Geer ordered the women to stay away from burning buildings after male firefighters threatened that they wouldn’t protect or help the women should they need it. Nice, huh?
I guess Geer didn’t consider banning the assholes who said they wouldn’t help their colleagues.
