Should I join the Marine Corps?

I'm a female and a friend took me with her when she had an appointment with a recruiter and I originally did not want to join when we were talking to the recruiter, but after a while every time I go to the PT sessions I get sucked into the motivation and pride and I feel like telling the recruiter I want to... show more I'm a female and a friend took me with her when she had an appointment with a recruiter and I originally did not want to join when we were talking to the recruiter, but after a while every time I go to the PT sessions I get sucked into the motivation and pride and I feel like telling the recruiter I want to sign up for the D.E.P....but then I hear from people that women get treated like ****, or they're sexually harrased ALL the time or that they're called a "walking mattress"/slut/lesbian.
