For the military being all about EO, the navy you'd think would be better. However, it is not. I was discriminated and provided much lesser opportunity for education and growth than my male counterparts, and all because my leadership looked at me as "just another female". Males in my line of work have gone to 3 to 6 schools, I was never provided further education. Same goes for the other females in my line of work. Very few get 1 and maybe 2 schools if they're lucky. Also, there is 0 leniency given to pregnant women during the most difficult months in the first trimester. It took until week 9 for someone to recognize how sick I was and tell me to take care of myself instead of continue to go in and be sick and a potential hazard because of the circumstances. Leadership seldom recognizes the women that are running operations, and applauds men instead, across departments.

I work with men, mainly. My current LPO, has it out for me. He treats me worse than everyone else and gives me the most work to do. He has no compassion for sick days, leave days, or medical appointments. Everything is an issue between me and him and any time I try to seek leadership around EM1 Somera, I am reprehended for my actions. It’s the classic case of reprisal. I do everything I’m asked to do, my work always gets done on time if not early. Yet, he still finds issues with my work. I can’t do anything right. People like him need to be demoted. His comments in the work place to other men are LUDE AND UNPROFESSIONAL. he has talked about getting a blow job from one of the other sailors for an EP evaluation. When questioned about his joke, we got yelled at and dismissed from the room.

I love the responsibility of leadership; however, it's tricky to be viewed as an equal working I. A male dominant environment. I feel strongly that females must act "meaner" or more aggressively than males do to be taken seriously. It's how I've "proven" myself to be an equal.

If you want to be harassed after seeking help for sexual assault, bullied for starting a family, and harassed while trying to pump milk for your new baby, join the navy. I had several female superiors walk into the lactation room while I was pumping just to make me uncomfortable. Sexual assaults are poorly handled and often end up with the victim getting PTSD from being hazed by their commands for reporting it, not the assault itself. They try to make the victim look crazy so it doesn't reflect on their leadership.

The military has come a long way but still has far to go concerning inclusivity. So far in my experience, the community is still extremely hyper-masculine which consistently hinders a lot of progressive efforts. Aside from this, the constant far right rhetoric is annoying to say the least. But things are changing. Slowly. Hopefully, one day soon, the old way of regarding those who aren't straight, white and male will permanently die. Hopefully.
