[url]http://www.worldtribune.com/worldtribune/breaking_5.html[/url] WASHINGTON Ñ A U.S. Air Force study said women who served in the Gulf over the last decade have reported physical and mental difficulties stemming from a lack of segregated facilities. The study said the women complained of urinary tract infections and dehydration because of poor medical treatment and the absence of womens' toilets.

This apparently happens in women's prisons too. The girl cons cannot bring themselves to piss and shit in front of others. GunLvr

Come on guys, you KNOW a woman can be just as good a soldier as any man. [}:D]

WTF! this is not a game. the army is there to KILL the enemy. if you have a personal problem get out! Many women crew members too embarrassed to use the latrines in front of their male colleagues ended up with urinary tract infections, the study said. To avoid using the latrines, the study said, many women limited their water intake and as a result became dehydrated. it seems you could make up something out of a piece of garden hose???

I'm not outright agaist women in the military, but this is a good example on why men are more fit for combat then women.

You've got to be kidding. They can't even properly execute a peeing maneuver. Anything other than desk jobs - forgeddabouddit.

You might not believe this, but back in the late 70s and early 80s, the Army spent [i]millions[/i] to develop a BDU insert (for the 505s, I believe] that allowed women to stand up and take a piss. The ideas was to make it easier for women to piss, AND to make it difficult for the enemy to identify female soldiers. Go figure.

Damn...that must be why my missus gets jacked out of shape when I tell the three year old grandson, "Just remember, Buddy...the world is your unrinal!" [}:D] Really gets her goat. Maybe she understands some primal instinct I haven't grasped until now? [;D] I think this story is funny as hell. Serves 'em right. Whine...whine...whine. (I'm sitting here trying to remember what life was like in the bush for a couple of weeks without much of anything...and I still can't figure out how the GI Janes can do that.) This topic is headed askew fast! [beer]

Question...aren't soldiers sometimes unable to go to a latrine. ie. use a tree or something? If a women was unable to use the toity wouldn't that be pretty bad since she may have to end up with much worse? As in without the toity?
