Female Submariners! What's Next? Female SEALS?
VetsCoR ^ | 4/29/2010 | A Navy Vet

The Navy recently changed policy to allow women on submarines. What the hell has happened to our Military? Have they lost their political correctness minds? Has the Navy not learned their lesson with the numerous pregnancies, difficulties on board between the sexes, and the unwarranted sexual harassment claims? I even witnessed such wrongful claims while women were still on tenders in the 1980's. Sure it's much worse now.

Now DOD is going to put women on subs with narrow passageways where some innocent Sailor can brush up against a female?

Think about it. A male Sailor walking through a two foot wide passageway on an attack sub and accidently brushes up against a female Sailor, meaning no intent, gets hammered for sexual harassment.

This is just plain a** stupid. Even on a Trident, you can't help but touch other Sailors while moving around. And what about "hot-racking". What? The girls get their own compartment and head? As if a sub has that the much space.

What's next? Women in the SEALS? After all, they deserve the same opportunities as men. Right?

Okay, so if ANY woman can pass the strength, endurance, and combat training for SEALS, then she's welcomed aboard. Good luck with that.

I've personally watched those guys train while I was at Coronado Island awaiting my ship to pull in, and watched the biggest strongest most muscular men "ring the bell" to quit. "GI Jane, with Demi Moore" was a Hollywood fantasy.

Unless the woman is the largest bull d*ke female of all time, there is no possibility of her passing SEAL training, maybe BUDS, but not SEAL combat training. In fact, I doubt that any woman will make it through HELL WEEK...and that's just the start.

Many years ago, Israel found that women in combat roles didn't work. They reversed that military policy.

The world is upside down - again. Women on subs. Pfft. So much for our national defense. Wonder how long it will take for a sub to have to surface to unload a female Sailor? I'm betting a six months at most...

Just a guess: I’ll bet there are no females or sexual harassment problems on Chinese, Russian or even Venezuelan subs. If this PC nonsense isn’t reversed they’re going to kick our a$$ into oblivion.

There isn't a female in existence that can take it.

Arrghhh! Sometimes I don’t know who’s worse, the “enemies foreign” or “domestic”.

Back in the 80’s, my uncle (Vietnamam-era submariner, Skate class IIRC) used to rant that the then current PC craze would come to haunt us, particularly regarding our national security interests, in the years to come. Being a dumb teenager at the time, I didn’t get it. I sure do know.

I heard an old submariner from the Vietnam War say, If she will go down on a submarine she will go down on anything.

What if a physically unfit submariner gets stuck in an escape device or compartment and causes scores to drown behind him or her.

I guarantee you that any female assigned to a sub will possess 2 qualities.. She’ll be lesbian, and UGLY AS HELL.

Yes, but do you think that will stop a horny 20-something male from hitting on her?
They had better ban paper sacks on subs. (;<}
