2 women share 1st kiss at US Navy ship's return
AP ^ | 12/21/2011

Posted on 12/21/2011 9:35:01 AM PST by JosephMama

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) -- A Navy tradition has caught up with the repeal of the "don't ask, don't tell" rule on gays serving openly in the U.S. military. The Navy said two women shared the coveted "first kiss" Wednesday when the USS Oak Hill returned home to its Virginia base. Marissa Gaeta of Pacerville, Calif., descended from the ship and shared a quick kiss with her partner, Citlalic (SEET-lah-leek) Snell of Los Angeles. The crowd screamed and waved Navy flags around them. Both women are fire controlmen in the Navy. They met at training school and have been dating for two years. Naval officials said it was the first time on record that a same-sex couple was chosen to kiss first upon a ship's return.

I am sure there were sailors a few weeks ago that would have paid to see that. Not so much today.

#2 - Queer women don’t belong in the Navy.

Well there is one way to solve this problem and the base and fleet commanders should forbid all displays of public affection in and out of uniform on base.

By definition they are defective. So, trying to figure out why the do things may be fruitless.

It’s funny; if they’re two hot young women with lots of hair and a fine set of haunches, men are more than happy to watch them kiss. But if they’re doughy with cropped hair and glasses, it’s a crime against God.

By the way, when did this “first kiss” become a big deal? I was on 2 different ships, on 2 long deployments and was never aware of such a thing.

Both women are fire controlMEN. This is probably a fairly close definition.

Never again will the men have to ask “Can I watch?”

Finally, what will happen if two women are found having sex on the ship? I predict NOTHING!

Of course that is what Obama and his underlings want and they would simply destroy any Commander, who would say otherwise. You know they are doing it aboard ships and daring anyone to expose them.

Nothing will happen, as long as they don't wish anyone a "Merry Christmas" afterward.

Over 200 years of Navy Tradition and pride down the drain. We are going to have to draft people soon. This is not going to end well.

brownsfan, I was in the Navy ‘69 to ‘73 and I assure you there were lesbians serving.

A perfect lady, men would be happy to watch two hotties kiss and don’t want to watch two women who look like men. Men don’t want to DO anything with two women who look like men. We’re not biased.

“brownsfan, I was in the Navy ‘69 to ‘73 and I assure you there were lesbians serving.”

I was in the Navy from 77-81, and I assure you that there were gays, both male and female in the Navy at the time. However, they kept it to themselves, both figuratively and literally. And, there were no women on combatant vessels. There were no female fire control technicians.

FTM2 brownsfan.

You’re kidding, right? The Navy Waves have been around since WWII. In 1970 I dated one. Their barracks were across the way from mine. By the way, she was straight.
