Are Marine Officers real Marines?

Well, I've always heard comments hear and there about people saying that Marine officers are not 'real' Marines. I say that ofcourse they are, but since they don't go through the same crap enlisted do (according to some) they aren't real Marines....

What do you guys think of this?
Update: Like I said guys. I DO know that Marine Officers are real Marines, I'm just saying that 'some' people say they are not and I'm just asking about your opinions on the subject.
