By the way, a lot of times, the WIVES of police officers are the ones who really resent women doing the job...just like the wives of military guys don't want to see women in combat.
They assume that we are all like them.
The last thing I wanted a guy thinking about, on the job, was my vagina.
Men are huge gossips...if one knows something, they all do. They're like a bunch of sorority girls. So, if you sleep with a guy on the force, EVERY OTHER GUY ON THE FORCE is going to know about it within an hour. Any woman who gets that far is generally not going to compromise her professional dignity like that.
At least, none of the women I've worked with ever did...or wanted to.
