If you were to read a novel dealing with a war and you had both male and female lieutenants shouting and yelling at their men to pick up the slack during a battle, would you care what gender those lieutenants were? I know we've all been exposed to novels and films with male military officers yell and shout at men to do their bidding, but we haven't seen enough of females doing that throughout history. Should I be comfortable in having one female lieutenant shout and yell at her troops to do her bidding? I know all of those old gender roles have been awash and men and women can basically do anything they want now. And there are female lieutenants in our actual military, but I don't know what they do. Does anyone know if they're as demanding as men when leading armies, or are they not allowed to under certain rules??? I just want to collect a consensus feel for this before progressing more through my story. Thanks again!
