Default The Double Standard in the Military

For those who are in the military, have you seen this happen? I've heard and seen plenty of things myself. Like women who have 'men's' jobs, they get promoted faster. Or the other way around. In my career field, its pretty much for sure that a pilot would rather be briefed by a female then a male, and if you're decent looking, they won't give you a hard time.

Another personal experience of mine is that when my ex PCS'd, his 'friends' among other people started hitting on me like crazy. People I never expected to do something like that. When I turned a couple of them down, they ran around saying I had slept with their friends and all these other lies. I feel like being a single female in the dorms gives you a bad reputation even if you keep to yourself.

What do women think of the case of A1C Hernandez? She was raped while intoxicated and then charged for indecent acts with an Article 15. In my opinion, the only thing she is guilty of is underage drinking.
