In a "conservative" country like China, male and female soldiers are mostly in separate unites, not mixed. Females are still kept away from direct combat except fighter pilots.Well well well! - just look at the news of recent scandalous sexual harassments in the US Marines!! The number of cases not reported, or have come into the open for ALL national Armed Forces were probably never publicised. "Keep women safe in the Military in safe jobs". By Jove, most of us should know that Men are generally no Angels, more so when they have the opportunity to fraternise and take sexual advantage .... BTW, some women in the military can also be flirtatious thereby inviting "trouble". I don't mind being called an old fashioned chauvinistic pig etc. if this means I believe in the morale, efficiency and effectiveness of any Armed Forces, without the unnecessary "distractions". Cheers!
In most places (for now) men and women visit different bathrooms, so why mix them in military if one ignore the political ideology.
Instead of "old fashioned chauvinistic pig", I think you are a "cool headed gentleman".
