Avionics techs do release checks and work closely with the ordies, and troubleshooters worked alot with them, including helping on loads when needed, though I was not big enough to do most of that, cept some sparrow and mer/ver loading. I was fully arm/disarm qualled.
    I should have joined the Navy and worked on the flight deck. I think I would have enjoyed that. **** all that crawling around in the mud infantry ****...lol

    If they felt threatened by being around straight guys, I doubt they would have joined in the first place.

    "Threatened" isn't exactly the word I would use when considering the idea of being on a ship with a couple hundred dudes.

    There are women that would feel threatened, if they were forced to billet with male soldiers. Should we tell them to toughen up, or get out?

    No. Women are different and have different parts, combined with the fact that they are not used to living with men in that capacity. Gay men are and nothing sets them apart from straight men to signal that they should be treated differently that the eye can see.

    It may be a bit of a stretch to say that all gay men are accustomed to living in open bay barracks with a buncha straight men.

    I think it's fair to say they wouldn't have enlisted if they were that put off by the concept.
