They would rather give orders and take over the social aspect of work so they can get away with giving nothing and getting everything. From bagging groceries as an adolescent to securing computer networks, my experience has been that women prefer to manipulate, demand special treatment, and, hell, they can be extremely hostile and much more aggressive than the men.. Because they know you cant do anything about it.
Perhaps their biggest advantage besides good 'press' is the value of the job. You lose your job you are screwed, she loses hers, she goes back home and is a stay at home wife.. This advantage is not something they let you forget.
Definitely one of the most corrupt entities on the planet. Army brass can pin trumped up charges on you. They will extort money that was paid to you. They will lie to you about everything from training you properly to why they send you to war. They will give you an order and put you in jail for following it.. And i think its silly how they justify that one.. A lower enlisted soldier will never, as a matter of fact, have the right to question an orders legality. He will have to follow it.. They will get you one way or another if by some real luck they cant lie in court.
The list goes on and on. Stay well away from joining the Army.
