Ah...you may be suprised there Sidhe. Being in the military, I dont get many of the rights and freedoms a lot of you do on the street. I cant say "no" to a lot of things my employer wishes of me...nor do I have any avenue to complain. I am expected to comply, with no question, my employers orders and if I dont, I can be punished legally via fines or possibly even jail time. If my boss tells me to clean the toilet and I tell him to piss off I could face jail time or significant fines as opposed to a minimal written reprimand. Also, considering the separation between common enlisted personnel and commissioned officers, it can very much be felt as a master/slave or the haves vs the have-nots...and thus be a second class citizen. If you get pulled aside after a 17 hour flight just to unload all the officers luggage while they head to their rooms tell me you wouldnt feel 2nd class. But, as with all feelings...you make a personal choice to feel that way. YOU choose to feel 2nd class....not other people. I may have been forced to do menial tasks for my superiors, but I refused to feel second class. That earned me respect. Its all about attitude and choice. Again, no one makes you a second class person....you choose to be one.
