    I saw a lot of what I will call sexual politics. During my time women were about 12% of the force so they were clearly in the minority. Some gals it didn't take them long to figure out how to get a better assignment or do less work because they could bat an eyelash. I saw less of this behavior in the civilian world due to the fact that the male to female ratio was more or less even.

    I guess because of my career field both in and out of the Navy, I've always been in what is typically a mostly male work center. 12% female would be high. I don't see more or less of the "sexual politics" as a civilian. I will continue to defend my fellow female service members because I think the characterization of women in the military is unfair and blown out of proportion. You hear about the bad apples, but many, many more women serve admirably and hornorably.

I guess by your way of thinking, all blonds are skanks sleeping their way to the top. Your son should avoid blonds.
    I could have slept my way to the top? Damnit..

    Sure you could have. Plenty of men whore themselves out to their bosses.
