A quick thought(342 words) getting to the point. I know people don’t want
to read a dissertation paper about it, no time me no time you no time we no…. hit it.
I served in the Spanish Legion as an infantry man. We had two women
in our company of 80 people (yes, that is the number in a Spanish company)
and they were a pain in the ass.
You have a bunch of 18 to twenty something years old guys, that are horny as hell,
specially when you put them when you are deployed in a very stressful environment,
when you don’t see a girl in months, you are horny.
They Americans say “band of brothers” not band of brothers and sisters.
It is true the firs part, we are a band of brothers even if you don’t particularly like
most of the guys you are with. But it is a macho culture, they did pee on me when I was
asleep and there are more anecdotes this is just one to keep this post short. And you take
it and then you do it yourself to the other guy, and we all laugh, and we get into fights
between us, then we laugh about the fights, then we laught about shooting people or dead bodies,
and is basic, is just a stress reliever when you are put into those kind of environments when
all is crazy and you better have a laugh at it or you’ ll become depresses and combat ineffective.
Not all that laughing about shooting people though, I did go a bit over the top there, but there
was no crying about it.
So if we have our differences between all these guys, you add the women in our mix, it does
destroy unit cohesion, that is the key words, unit cohesion.
They might very well do some of the same things men do in training but when bullets start
flying in my experience it was us guys that would react and these two girls didn’t do shit,
again it comes to unit cohesion and that bond that you have as a tough guy. And you better have
that mentality when the real shit hits the fan.
Although I know is hard for civilians to understand.
I just made my semi argument in 342 words.
Stay Frosty gents and gentesses.
Why the fuck the picture goes on the bottom? weird….
