It is often the men who are expected by society to do all of this for women (being a hero and being overprotective of them). In my case, the gender roles are reversed. I've actually attempted to enlist in the military before but I was permanently DQ'd for medical reasons. My girlfriend on the other hand, never cared if whether or not I served and more about me as an individual man. She seems to really often care about my physical and emotional well-being for the past 3 months of dating.
It's funny because I used to generalize military women as women who become desensitized (morally and emotionally) and not as maternal after serving in the military.
