When I was a basic trainee at fort leonardwood there were so many hypocrisies it makes me sick. Ffrom day 1 we were taught about army values, but the only thing I learned was that following them got you screwed over.
After my training period was over I was kept on medical hold until I could be cleared because of a bad knee. While on hold I was sent to a different company along with the other holds for the drill sergeants vacation. While I was there a private still in training accused myself and another male private of fraternization, which is ironic given that she had had males in her barracks room by herself, which is not allowed.
After being accused, I was ostracized in front of everyone, called a s**t and the barracks mattress, which is ridiculous, because all I had done was talk to a battle buddy. Then after the drill sergeants got back from vacation a friend of mine had a sexual relation in the barracks with another medical hold. This is a big no no. Since I was her roommate our entire room was stripped and searched, a very humiliating experience, esp given that I was not involved.
She was called the same derrogatory words that I had been, while the male involved was called a pimp daddy. He got 15 days extra duty, while she was sent to jail (she was married though) even though her husband had been cheating on her... While this might not have made her actions right, I do not see why the punishments were not equal. It's nice to know how sexist the army really is and I am glad to no longer be associated with these hypocrites.
