Military preparedness policy should not be like bodice ripper novel plots

Yesterday, a high level commission studying allegations of sexual harrassment at our service academies recommended the solution was vastly expanding the number of women attending.

Only problem is the primary mission of the service academies is to produce line officers for the combat arms like the infantry, artillery, armor, special operations, fighter pilots and forward deployed warships and submarines. These are specialties few women seek or qualify for. We're already very shorthanded because recruiting and retention of experienced officers and NCOs are persistently declining.

An effective solution is to clearly distinguish between genuine sexual harrassment from complaints which arise when women cadets aggressively flirt, particularly when intoxicated, or are the product of "hell hath no fury than a woman sconed" reaction when a romance ends badly.
