Well you just knew it was going to happen eventually.
They did this to helicopter pilots a decade ago. Hell... I just flew with a female captain this past Monday. We were a flight of 5, we were chock 4, she was flying,and we were going through a narrow mountain valley north of Mosul. She lost sight of chock 3, immediately let go of the controls and announced, I've lost chock sight. NO ONE is flying this helicopter.
Two disks in front of us is another helicopter, two disks behind us is another helicopter, and 500 meters on either side of us are mountains. It's hot outside, we're in high DA, and we've heavy with troops... so I have little power to "climb" out of this shit storm. Not to mention I was inside the cockpit working the radios, had my kneeboard open, my map open when she decided to just "fuck it" and give up flying. So I had to drop everything, come on the controls, I was flying cross cockpit, couldn't see the flight and couldn't break from formation. If it wasn't for my crew chiefs, we might have had a really bad day.
Sometime females just present unusual problems... like taking a piss. When we're up there for 4-5 hours, we don't land to take a piss. We freakin use a water bottle. Can't do that with females.
Your men have to follow your orders. They don't have to go to your funeral.
