    I would say it's more nuance than semantic.

    .........Rainmaker somehow managed to hoodwink the AF recruiter into taking him & then spent The next 6 years as an Airborne Radio Operator, in Operational Sqs that were probably > 95% male.......


    So, To make a long story longer..........Got permanently DNIF'd for an irregular heartbeat (proving I have one?!) then, Re-trained and did 13 more in a largely civilianized career field.......

    However, did deploy 6 more times for OEF/OIF (4 of them joint), including 2 as a first sergeant, so I'm quite familiar with the effects women can and do have on esprit de corps and the multitude of benefits they'll provide to a unit's cohesion and mission effectiveness (just by the very act of, being around).

    Now, My OPINION (& take it FWIW) Is that any senior leader that thinks putting Women in Combat Arms is actually a good idea, Is either A: a PC hack bootlicking kiss ass, posing as a General Officer or B: Has had their lips wrapped around the Koolaide cup, so fucking far and for so fucking long, that they've inadvertently turned themselves into a special breed of Moron.
    I did not know you had been a red leg, good shit. May Saint Barbara's blessing land true.

    So, oir background are not as different as I thought. Why do you suppose our experiences with alleged assaulted a being ostracized and/or ruined by the system (can't control interpersonal actions) are so different?

    I think your observation is for the most part correct. Over the last 20 years or so the AF has gone from around 10% female to almost 20%. As a result, all sorts of problems have manifested, not the least of which is political correctness run amok.
