Not "Too Much Information!"

Tales of women passing themselves off as men have intrigued me from girlhood. While devouring P.C. Wren's books, I considered the French Foreign Legion as a career option ( the flattering uniform, the horses, the travel) until the peeing problem dampened my enthusiasm. Just how did that girl posing as a male legionnaire manage to relieve herself in the desert?
And those girls posing as boys who joined the navy or became pirates? How did they go pee without revealing their gender?
Gilhooly's article satisfied my curiosity with regard to her days as a casual labourer.
Now to enjoy Kate Braid's memoir of her life as a carpenter.
