actually i know people who join it for the loan repayment options...idk..i always wonder about women who WANT to be in those situations like the woman who sued to enter a military school in VA...like why? why would you want to be the only woman in a military institution?you think alumni are going to reach out to you and be as supportive?

Yeah....
I still want to go.
I know alot of educated black women in the military.
My cousin just graduated Law School and enlisted soon after.
I also know some MBA's in the military and an MD
She always talked about it but wanted to go to law school first.

I was into it for a while.
About to start training

most of the ppl i know who are black and in the military are educated
i still don't get it
i guess when you're educated you can avoid combat

i get men--but women in the military are in such a precarious position imo

and women who go abroad with contracting companies that are hired out by the military are in an even worst position with those adhesion contracts that they sign! those contracts are merciless and force them to mediation and they cannot get justice in court for the acts committed against them. 


while i love a man in uniform--a suit works just as well

The military has always been an interest of mine.
My high teachers purposely steered me from it though they had a certain stigma of the military which I understand.
They purposely made us miss the Asvab


Oh yeah that statement had no venom

This mess has been going on since my mom told enlisted back in the late 70s.

There's a general or major in NC who was arrested for raping 6 women, 5 whom were officers.

No shortage of women willing to tell their stories of rape and cover up when they were enlisted either.

Until the military gets checks and balances in place. You know, actually taking rape crimes seriously and having a culture of basic respect for women, they'll keep happening with little to no consequence.Dead
