I used to ******** the MRE's for the goods man... Chicken Cavatelli used to have M&M's. That MRE alone would buy you someones daughter in the Philippines.

Women do not belong in the ******* military. They are not built for combat. I'd trust a man to cover my back in a fire fight A LOT more than a woman. Especially if the fighting got close and we needed to do hand to hand combat. Men are stronger than women, it's a scientific fact. No sexism there. We just are stronger.

women can do plenty in the military... Deviation exists for both genders. You've got milksop boys and prissy girls and you've got butch women and He-men...

As someone who trained alongside women in basic, there are valid points both agreeing and going against your statement. There are women not cut out to be in the military at all, but there are men who performed just as poorly. However I also saw a 95 pound 5'1 female beat the **** out of a 5'10 male, and this same girl always passed even male standards for PT. Some women make the cut, while some men do not.

I'm not gonna lie though, passable female to passable male ratio is extremely high. Now I'm assigned to an infantry unit so there are no females in my unit, a lot more freedom to say whatever you want.

What why?! My teacher that I look up to was a medic and got to carry a super advanced rifle, but that's probably because he was some sort of Air Force Special Ops. That guy got to fight with all the top guys, Delta, Rangers, DEVGRU, all of them.
But man you must feel like that one kid who had to rent a paintball gun while everyone else brought theirs.

pretty much, but it depends on the unit, mostly. The reason I carry a handgun instead of a rifle is because my job is caring for the wounded, and trying to drag or work on a casualty while keeping positive control of a rifle isn't exactly efficient for life saving.

Most armies are very hard on their female soldiers, so they don't slow down the rest. Often they only accept the very best women.

yeah, it's a standards problem right now, if you both actually have the same PT standards and such the only potential problem is the risk of pregnancy. Since you can't keep a pregnant woman deployed, you can't order her to terminate it, and there'd be a huge outcry if there was punishment for getting pregnant, it's a huge problem with deploying women. I think that's the only inherent problem left with the US having female infantry, everything else is just policy changes.

The last time an army general tried to institute any kind of punishment for pregnancy it got all sorts of protesting from women's rights groups. The general public doesn't give a **** about the military unless they can protest something like this, so instituting any kind of blanket punishment would be a godamn nightmare. Also, as of my Afghan deployment in 2012 in the Marine Corps, there was no punishment for ending up pregnant.

If anyone would like to have further insight on the meaning of this: Skittles/M&M's and such related candies are a little bit rarer to get in MRE's. IE: alot soldiers/marines in basic training will do about ANYTHING for candy during this time.

As someone who went through basic I can assure you most of us got sick of them after a while. At first we were all excited for the candy and the "delicious" MRE's rather than chow hall food. After 4 days though we were so done with them, candy and all.

HOLY **** YOU GUYS DO NOT UNDERSTAND.   
   
This has been such a long running story through BEAST Week in Air Force basic training, as well as Army BCT, at least at Fort Leonard Wood. I went through BEAST Week in April 2012, and the Cadre, BEAST Week's Drill Sergeants, were making bets on which one of us ******* was getting recycled and/or discharged for Trading Skittles for a blowjob with someone from the female flights. This happens at least once every month, always at BEAST. It's the only time males and females have an opportunity to come in contact, though the Cadre usually come and collect any candy/sweets/tabasco (anything with flavor) from the three MREs we ate daily, someone always smuggles some candy to trade for things like this. It has been a guaranteed thing for probably the last 9 years, in every BEAST group. Someone's getting kicked from Basic for a blowskie.   
   
TL;DR - This is a very real issue, and has caused trainees to be removed from military service.

Let me ask you military people, why is this really an issue? Do people really deserve to be discharged over such a thing? I mean, you people are serving our country and doing us a great service, what is so wrong with a little hanky panky in exchange for candy, anyway? Don't you think some of those people earn a little time for themselves in between service? And if people are doing sex acts privately and consensual (even if it's a trade for food items) what is so wrong with it as long as they are doing their job and their duties when needed?

I see the whole "duty and honor" part of it, but you got to face it, people are only human and human beings are sexual creatures. I'm sure guys in the military are really wound up when they don't see ANY women for months/years on end. I don't see the problem with them hooking up when there are women around.

No need to bash me, I'm not in the military, I'm just curious about why this is even an issue. And if you want to hear something, my deceased uncle believe it or not served in World War II (yes my relatives are VERY old). The military actually gave them condoms because they were going in France and they knew they would hook up with the women there. Have the rules changed since then? This all just sounds like stupid rules to me.

My father spoke of something called the 'Forbidden City' during Vietnam. He was also smashed most of the time and was allowed into the officer's lounge despite being of a lower rank. His job was to fly the medical chopper and pick up wounded soldiers in the middle of combat. Hoooweeever... He'd also fly soldiers against policy into the designated 'recreation' (sex) Forbidden City outside of hours or days allowed to visit, and then go pick them up. XD

He was always drunk as a skunk, then, but could just listen to a chopper and tell you what was wrong with it. Superiors would not trust their mechanic needs with anyone else, and my father also earned quite a few perks for being a..tailor. Even though it wasn't allowed, he'd crease slacks so no matter how filthy you were you'd be able to pick everything up for inspection and make it look like you spent hours pressing it. I like his stories. Not sure how the hell he is alive from some of those stories, though.. People throwing grenades out of a fox hole and..not making it over the hole. Getting drunk enough to fly ON TOP of the front of the chopper. x_x Yeeep...

actually if you look in the UCMJ (uniform code of military justice) it clearly states that oral sex and sodomy are both outlawed regardless of gender or circumstance. so technically you would be breaking the law.

When you are in training you are under TRADOC which makes it impossible to provide consent. Anything sexual that happens in training is basically but not really rape. Also when out of training a no fraternization policy exists to protect soldiers and help maintain over unit morale. Imagine working with someone you had a horrible break up with. It's not good for combat readyness, and that my friend is just a couple reasons why they don't tolerate that behavior.

Ookie, I think you came up with the closest/most valid reasons for them having rules/laws banning sex in the military. It probably has to do with image and morale. I think you also made a great point about people breaking up and having emotional drama while they are in the military. But I think that subject in unavoidable, what about the people that are already married and have kids? How do they keep a straight mind? I don't think allowing/banning sex will have any impact.    
   
With THAT being said, I did a little research about this topic myself. I think rules regarding sex (as well as alcohol and etc.) have to do with the chain of command. One's solider's post I read (I think it was at army.com forums) said that when you join the military, you are not in a democracy. If they tell you not to have sex, drink, or party around, they mean it. You don't get a say or you get the ******* boot with a dishonorable discharge, especially if you are a recruit or "grunt" with no commanding privileges of a higher ranking officer.   
    
From what I've read today, some units in the military do allow "passes" to their soldiers as well, some to get a night off and etc. but it's usually kept quiet. Oh well, I guess that's that.

One mangy bitch lied and tried to say a male and female were seen sneaking out of the hardened shelter but she admitted to lying after out squadron got ****** up the butt by the cadres and we made it back to the actual squad. I had to shovel sand bag as MOPP 2 for six hours because of that bitch.
