According to AEON's logic, straight men are really fucked up. I mean, they can't live in close quarters with gay men, they can't live in close quarters with women and must contemplate sexual encounters and distractions 24 hours a day. They live in a constant state of sexual tension, directed at anyone who is not another straight male. I'm surprised straight men can even get through the day. Life must be total hell.

I am not saying that there are not women who can do the job. I'm certain there a few. However, it wouldn't be optimal. And in the Infantry, more than in any other element, you want as few distractions possible.

So.....since you brought up the MBTI and "organizational behavior", you're basically saying that you're model of group cohesion and communication means catering to the stubbornness and biggotedness of the ENTJs because it's just....easier? That's like the most un-Christian model of group communication I could even think of. Men are such animals, they shouldn't have to deal with women as a distraction? Wow, you're really digging your own grave on this one.

I really cannot believe I'm even reading this.

Don't ask, don't tell was a major reason, if not THE reason, I decided against enlisted at the age/place in my life where up until that point I'd always considered it a real possibility. I guess if anything your posts make me not regret that decision one single bit. If your views truly represent the attitude of our military in general, I think it's disgusting and a disgrace to this country. One more BIG leap backwards, go figure.

Oh, you don't even know the half of it. Pure hell.

I'm just glad there are brave, intelligent, open-minded people like AEON to stand up and speak out about it.

She wouldn't want me sharing a tent with one or showering with one, that's for certain.

I know, how about instead of segregating women, gays, and those of minority races, the military segregates those who are too close-minded to work along side women, gays, and those of minority races?

I guess she wouldn't allow you to be a doctor either.

i think it's brave of AEON to admit he finds women irresistable, and thus his wife is untrusting of him in close proximity to humans with vaginas.

Just to clarify - I never said there was a problem with minority races in the Infantry. Half of my platoon is Hispanic American. My commanding officer is also an Hispanic American. We have a tremendous team.

I really do not see why so many of you are upset by this. According to many of the posts, we should never use the military anyway.
