I’ve never been in the military. That said, privacy? On the frontlines? What are they suggesting.. portable lounges so they can powder their noses? This is so beyond stupid that it hurts my brain.

Guys who were Marines in WW II...landed on beaches with eighty pounds of gear. For four to six weeks...they’d hike around and launch fire-fights with the Japanese. No one showered. You might have changed socks maybe once a week, but it was harsh living conditions. After a month of this....if you were lucky...the fight was done, and you recovered back at the Navy vessel for the first shower in four weeks. If you can find one young lass out of a thousand able to tote the hundred pounds of gear and live harshly for a month like that....fine. My humble guess is that she’ll weigh 200 pounds and be tossed out shortly for being overweight by Marine standards.

I wonder how they plan to get the enemy to cooperate with all their politically correct plans and ideas in combat. Or will they blow all this smoke about women etc in combat, but when it actually comes, the usual will out at the sharp end-white males.
