This is the stuff lesbian dreams are made of: a sensible haircut, a profound sense of personal ethics, puppy dog tails.
Well, dream on this: Bea Arthur was an ex-Marine who drove trucks, enlisted at the age of 21, skyrocketed to the rank of staff sergeant, and came across as “argumentative” and “over-aggressive” even to her military recruiter.
