  1. She is a hero. Every guy knows it at a gut level, and no man is really going to be fooled by the headline characterisations.
    We men really do admire bravery in combat, you know, and are in awe of those who display it.

    It also does nothing to draw attention to the huge problem of misogyny and sexual violence within the army.
