    Rainmaker's local installation is guarded by a 5-4" 145lb Latina Lioness.

    She has Silky brown hair and bedroom eyes the color of chestnuts.

    The best way I could describe her is that She's built like a smaller version of a Lane Bryant model with curves, if you know what I mean........Strangely, She wears these Blue Latex Surgical gloves when she checks your ID card.

    Now, I don't really know if she could stop a Hardened ISIS Terrorist that's all hopped up on Captagon And really Determined to commit Jihad.

    But, I must admit that every time I see her at the gate a little fantasy plays out in my head where she asks me to "please step out of the vehicle Sir" and then she proceeds to gently fondle my balls. Nomsayin?

    There are some cuties I've seen.

    Anyway...it does seem like SF has a TON of females nowadays...either that are SF always puts them at the gates...next to medical, it seems like one of the most popular career fields for women is SF.

    Maintenance seems to be the last of the boys' clubs...though we're getting more females in maint than there used to be...still heavily tilted male.

    CE is still pretty much a boys club, too, when you look at the base support people (Plumbers, carpenters, heavy equipment, electrician, power pro). There are a few more in Readiness and the job controllers, but as far as the hands on people, mostly male. Even where I am now, there are 85 military instructors...2 of those are female.

    SJ is right. The majority of females in CE are almost always found in customer service, readiness, and engineering assistants. The other "trade" shops are merely dotted with the occasional female and they not often attractive. My current shop has a female. First one in years. She's pretty laid back and works hard. Never takes offense or makes a big deal about shit.

    On this most recent deployment, my shop had a rather attractive female. And I'm not talking about deployment goggles attractive either.

    Yep, this is pretty much the same thing at the APS. Cargo, ramp, and fleet - all male with the occasional female (usually unattractive or even masculine), with all other the females in PAX and ATOC.

    Admission of the day.............I had to Google 'Captagon'.

    By jove Gig, you are right. I missed the part that said "at least the ones I have seen guarding the gate'.

    Had touch of MK disease this morning

    I don't agree with him as I have seen some very, very attractive women in the SF field (I even married one many eons ago)

    I was simply playing to stereotypes for entertainment value.

    The average American woman today weighs 166.2 pounds.

    Of course, an obese woman will still not have as much upper body strength as a man.
    The average man is obese also so what is your point? The average 5'5 120 Man is not stronger that the Average 5'10 160 Pound woman so again what is your point? Americans in general are so unhealthy that the number of people who could even be drafted or enlist is getting alarmingly low, Letting women fill every job helps with that.

    That all can be fixed with what the Army has been working on, a fixed standards for each MOS, that is gender neutral. That makes the decision based on of capability not old fashioned bias and/or bigotry.
