    I am asking you to lighten up because making a joke about someone wearing pink nail polish into combat does not make anyone a petty snotty child.

    Good lord.

    You don't think it's at least a little bit funny that someone in the middle of war zone would take the time to paint their finger nails pink? Not even a tiny bit?

    lol

    Well if you don't you don't. But I can promise a lot of people would.

    I find it a little funny also. I would suspect a sniper would want short nails. US army regs allow female soldiers to wear their nails one quarter inch beyond the finger tip unless it poses a safety concern. The long painted nails looked out of place and made the photo look staged to me. If anyone other than Spooky made the comment, Hollywood would not have commented, he's just got it in for Spooky.

    It's certainly possible. Lots of propaganda and disinformation there, on all sides.

    But, what would be the point of it, in this case?
    Thanks from Hollywood

    You simply don't understand women.

    War is dirty, nasty dehumanizing business, it's messy and ugly and a predominately male environment. But yes, a woman would put a bottle of nail polish in her pocket and given a moment will paint her nails if for no other reason that to have a clearly visible "sign" that she is STILL a woman, if only to remind herself.

    She's not in the U.S. Army. Why would U.S. Army regulations be brought up?

    To make the point that maybe some armies have regs about that sort of thing. Don't know what other countries regs are, just pointing out why I found the pic a bit staged.

    That's fine. I was just pointing out that U.S Army regulations are irrelevant in this matter.

    For you to trash someone so excessively over what amounted to a silly joke - calling them a snotty child - is what I would consider disrespectful.
    Don't ask me questions if you don't want an answer. *shrug*

    Oh hell, I thought everyone already knew I had no respect for Spookycolt.
    Sorry.

    Women should stay out of combat.

    So should men who want to be women.
