Anyone remember the quirks of the northern abolitionists?

I'm not sure a straight athlete can live in a ditch for a month without infections. I would think that anyone living in a ditch for a month would, at the very least, have to worry about fungal infections (e.g. athlete's foot & jock itch). From there, it really depends on the conditions to which they're exposed, but common infections could include anything from rashes to respiratory ailments to various agents that cause g/i issues. So far as I know, infectious agents don't particularly care about one's sexual preferences.

Did I miss the point of your question?

it was a reference to newt gingrich's speech circa 1992 in which he said women shouldn't be allowed in the military because, unlike men, women couldn't live in a ditch for 30 days since "they get infections". your response triggered a nueron in my brain that made me think of it.

Heh. I had forgotten about that. Gingrich was always great for a painful laugh.
