I'm not sure what you're saying about inside the wire and outside the wire.
And I never said that every location did
have adequate showers, latrines, housing, etc. What I said was that any logistician would be offended if someone told him he couldn't get those things pretty much anywhere. If it's a leadership priority to get something to a particular location and the resources are available, then I'm convinced a logistician can make it happen. And now, this stuff will become a leadership priority. In your case, it sounds like your leadership thought that piss tubes were adequate, and in a male-only environment, they can be perfectly adequate.
I've been on a couple of male-only teams that lived and worked well away from other Americans (in other words we were not on a FOB). The only thing that prevented us from having females on the team were inadequate facilities, because it wasn't a leadership priority to get females on my teams and then supply the necessary resources to make it happen.
