Pansyface, Leered at, sugestive remarks, groped, goosed and often Ladies thinking because you are in uniform you are up for what ever their needs are. It is not all one way and not even on one Continent. many Ladies assume a service man fair game and that would include a very titled Lady in Port Said, her comment " when you are done with him give him a scrub and throw him in my bed" in front of me not to me to a lovely WVS Lady old enough to be my mother who had asked me to accompany her to a WVS dinner and dance in a top hotel. Two sides to every story, my Mother on war work as an electrician in the Waafs quarters was on half the mens pay until they discovered she was one of the only electricians who would go into the hangar roof and fit the light bulbs, that got her equal pay "err" for that job only?
My old Dad pulled me aside one day and said "Son, there are no bird, bits of fluff, bints or any other names for them but Ladies, no matter what they do they are all Ladies treat them as such and you will never go wrong. In my Dancing youth the partners were mainly older or married ladies some of whom thought a bun and a cup of tea in the interval bought you for the night, wrongly of course.
A march past in Portsmouth in 1970 and an invite into the local hostelries for drinks after, standing at the bar glass in hand I felt my bottom being caressed turning I discovered a girl younger than my Daughters, she said "I cannot resist men in uniform" what even old enough to be your Dad? sorry dear I am married.
Ladies in our area of the North East are noted for being outspoken and also for being much more aggressive than the men, yes there are reasons to complain and rightly so though as one who trained one of the first women engineers in the area and saw her rise up through the glass roof I knew that a Lady with enough guts had the possibility of doing so. It will never happen if you just say I am a woman raise me up when the men who reach to top have to fight all the way up, then of course the only way is down.
