Didn't think about that!
Serving in the army is an extreme test of courage and strength for anyone. However, there are certain difficulties and complications that women face in an organization where men are the majority. These women have bravely shared what extra challenge they faced that their male counterparts didn’t and how they overcame them (if possible).
Having your period out in the field. Talk about that not so fresh feeling… (CupofTia)
Your husband serves?
A female coworker of mine hates being asked if her husband is in the military whenever she’s out in civilian clothes (meesersloth)
Asking about military discounts and being told in a condescending asshole tone that it’s only for the member, not dependents. (pixiegurly)
Super debilitating cramps. They were worse when I was young and sometimes when I dehydrated they’d get so bad I couldn’t stop vomiting. It only happened on duty once, but a lot of men only associate that type of sickness with alcohol poisoning so I got a lot of shit for that until they checked my blood alcohol. Good times.
