That's like saying why do women bother to work in any environment? Just because it IS sexist doesn't make it effin' right. I have the right to work, fuck.
What annoys me is that the line is drawn so hard and deep that the "kids" are rebelling from the "parents" and they don't have the means to do it safely, and thus women are ending up pregnant.
Not to mention they train and force training on women that is equal to that of males, and then tell them once they get there that they aren't good enough to fight alongside the males they trained with. It's pretty effed up.The military is sexist, it makes no apologies for that either, it discriminates against weight and age and intelligence and a whole bunch of other things to, it is totally un-PC but anyone who enlists in the military is expected to be able to travel overseas and enter a war zone, they discriminate under the idea that it protects other soldiers.
What is even worse than that? The commercials, recruiters, and adverts all try to lure women in by saying they can do all these things.. they fail to tell them that they're all lies. They protray themselves inaccurately.
I've never, and will never, think that responsibility lies just within the woman just because she's the one that ends up pregnant. It takes two to tango. So it should take two to protect themselves.Women do have to be more responsible than men in this regard, a man can get a woman pregnant and continue working, a woman cannot get pregnant and continue working.
True story.It's sexist, but hey, it often sucks to be a female in the army.
Menstruation is not the end of the world. I promise you that. Honestly, that's the excuse the army gives when they forbid women from sniper school and such. They say it's harder for women to be more hygenic. We're expected as basic soldiers to be able to stay out in the field period or no, but staying out in the field for sniper school is no-go? Please.
Men act hormonal and crazy and they don't even have periods to blame it on.
