You are right. The CAF could easily force someone to do it. The CAF can force you to take a bound to draw enemy fire too. But I, pensionally, try not to force people to do something they are uncomfortable with unless I really have to.I wasn't much of a "barracks room lawyer". But, I recall "refusing a lawful order" was mentioned during GMT ( BMQ ).
Which is why I was a little bit surprised to read of today's CAF,
Key word: Refuse.
Refusal of a lawful order, was a quick way to commit career suicide in emergency services, or the CAF. At least it was when I was in.
I know times have changed since then, but not that much.
Let's turn this around, if a woman refuses to be alone with a man because she is worried something could happen do we force her? Of course not. That doesn't mean we leave it there and it doesn't me we leave it there for a man. I have had some people work for me who didn't want to work for various people for various reasons and one of my jobs is to deal with it. It's a lot of work though and why would we want to increase that programs that don't make women feel safer?
