Would the whining soldiers who are positive that theater sex is a "right" we should not deprive soldiers of please explain to me how a soldier leaving the theater after shooting himself in the foot is any different from a pregnant soldier leaving the theater?

He still leaves the rest of us to carry our load and his. He indisputably "self-inflicted" the condition.

I saw no problem with the [pregnancy] policy and still don’t. Soldiers negatively affect their health all of the time. Whenever they suspect they have a condition that would negatively affect their career, they avoid having that condition identified or treated.

The only problem I ever saw with the policy was the possibility that the male half of the condition could escape punishment by not being identified by the female half, which I thought justified an additional punishment for the nonidentification.
