"Damn Policy 212 is so harsh and violent"

Except the group has had to put people down for being bit like a dozen times, rofl. Malorie shouldn't even blink about it because she killed her damn dad for being infected.

When we march out into that swamp, myself, Heam and the others will all have eighty to a hundred pounds worth of gear on us. Not including personal items, you’ll be kitted out with sixty-five pounds, along with any other woman in the Grey Army.” Malorie was surprised by that information, since nobody had told her and she’d never paid enough attention to others in training to see that the men had additional equipment to lug around.

Her reaction wasn't really genuine there, it was kind of a half hearted "Oh, how harsh."

And anytime there's a debate on women in infantry roles, carrying equipment loads is one of the biggest arguments against it. Since I doubt two decades and a female leader erased sexism entirely, I figured it'd make sense for some in the Oregonian army to not be happy to have women present on the frontlines.

I wanted to make the post longer, but if I did it might not have been finished for another week.

If anything, two decades of post-apocalyptic survival has probably made sexism a lot worse, especially somewhere like Oregon's army or Eureka's shantytowns where nobody gives a **** about other people.

I imagine it's split. For Malorie sexism was hardly even a concept while she was living on the Atlas and even afterwords, the women in the group always had equal work and expectations to the men.

I figure it's less of a thing in small survivor communities, but like you said it's even worse than before in large organizations like the Gray Army.

Nice post, Teddy. Bateman reminds me of a sergeant from a book I read who acted just about the same way, but instead of being sexist he was racist as ****, always putting the black soldiers on point and in shitty positions. That ****'s always gonna be around apocalypse or not.

True enough, and yeah you can expect him to do everything he can to make Malorie hate her life in the Army.

Again?

Also, "sixth we've seen today" and "seventh we've seen this week" like two sentences from each other.

If you're throwing a fit over Malorie encountering Colin/Valerie, then deal with it. There's more than enough reason and cause for them to encounter each other here. Honestly if you thought Malorie was going to spend several months fighting in the same swamp they live in without encountering them then lol.

I think he meant again referring to Michelle's meeting with Colin, which if I remember rightly you and I were scrapping and trading it for this scene.
