"People didn't come up to us and thank us for our service in the same way. They didn't give us free beers in bars in the same way when we first got back,"

Join the club. The only time this happens to me is on Fark.

The only time I've had some guy buy me a beer, I sent it back after he told me I should get the Medal of Honor just for putting up with all the ni**ers in the Army.

This Melanin-American thanks you for honoring the best of basic human decency, and thereby doing your uniform and your country proud yet again.

They brought up valid points regarding the downplaying of women's role in combat overseas, but did the article have to focus so much on not getting free drinks?

At first glance, which is all most articles get from the majority of the public, it just sounds like the women veterans are biatching about not getting freebies.

Pretty shiatty writing, if you ask me.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: You sent back free beer?!?!

I'm also torn between my hatred of racism and my love of free beer.

Maybe he could've returned the beer after he was done with it.

Well I guess if you're completely hemophobic you may have trouble being around women at all.

This does not apply to all female veterans, but if you were ugly before you went into the military, you are probably still ugly. During your deployment, you were one of very few females in an area with very high demand, but don't expect improvement on that treatment when you go back to the real world.

True story:

After talking to a recruiter, a girl went into the Army straight out of high school and eventually got deployed to Iraq. On the very last day of her tour, she discovered that she and two other female soldiers were put on, on the wings of a dove, on the wings of a dove! Madness FTW!

So that goes to show that you can't always trust someone not to screw you over after wasting your time on something they suckered you into, especially if they are an idiot.

My wife said that when she was up in Providence, RI, they were buying her free drinks and bratwursts all the time. I think it all depends on where you are.

Here in Norfolk, VA, we are the quintessential military town. We might, maybe, if we're lucky, get a 10% discount for military around here. We go back to Michigan, we show the military ID, people are bending over backwards to give us free stuff.

Does that have to do with you being in the military, or being a woman? Because a woman, unless she is a complete hog beast, can usually get guys to pay for their drinks with little more than a hair flip.

Female professional killers.

I don't think it's possible to debase their gender role any more than that.

Quite an achievement.

I knew that if any institution could achieve new heights of perversion the US military could.

I take it you're speaking from experience. It's okay. You just be yourself no matter what all those more photogenic war heroes say behind your back.
