Updated at 6:17 p.m. ET] The U.S. Navy's new class of carriers will be the first to go without urinals, a decision made in part to give the service flexibility in accommodating female sailors, the Navy says.
The change heralded by the Gerald R. Ford class of carriers starting with the namesake carrier due in late 2015 is one of a number of new features meant to improve sailors' quality of life and reduce maintenance costs, Capt. Chris Meyer said Wednesday.
Omitting urinals lets the Navy easily switch the designation of any restroom or head, in naval parlance from male to female, or vice versa, helping the ship adapt to changing crew compositions over time, Meyer said.

I spent time on the USS Ranger, making fresh water.
USS Fighting Goddess?
Capt. Chris Meyer said it improve sailors’ quality of life
Admiral Pat Slickmountain agrees.
I thought everyone had enough sense to stand at the *leeward* rail.

LOL! You mused be pissed off [pun intended].
USS PAUL LYNDE
“Keeping The Seat Down”
The USS Raging Queen, visiting such man's ports as Key West and San Francisco.
Yeah, I’m no sailor. However, I believe that my understanding of wind direction and speed would lead me to the best place to relieve myself. ;-)
Male sailors will be forced to sit when urinating for sanitary reasons.
There are two vacuum pumps (port and starboard) and they were nonfunctional more than not. The crewmembers were suffering from UTIs and kidney problems because they had to hold it too long due to down equipment.
On a single gender ship (in the good old days) you cold hang it over the side or ...go to the poop deck.
I think the term "poop deck" is about to get a new meaning.
Frees up a head they can use as a birthing room/nursery for the sex that doesn’t happen aboard ship.
Here is a picture of Capt. Chris Meyer and Admiral Pat Slickmountain, on board the USS Fighting Goddess.
Well, that pretty much explains it, the carrier named for one of this country's BIGGEST DISGRACES, wuss, p*ssy, RINO, bottom-feeding, POS, posing as a "Republican," so it stands to reason that all who serve aboard should be expected to "Squat to pee!"
This girly-guy, "cross the aisle" and bow to the wishes of the Rat Party in the name of "Bi-partisanship," abrogated his sworn obligation to uphold the Constitution and ignored our "Committment" as outlined in the Paris Peace Accords to intervene on the side of our allies (S. Vietnam) should the North make an effort to take over or conquer the South.
THIS Asshat, stood by and allowed this to happen which consigned HUNDREDS of THOUSANDS of S. Vietnam (WHO WERE NAIVE ENOUGH TO "TRUST" US) to re-education camps, torture, executions and deaths as they attempted to escape their new COMMUNIST masters.
To this day, I have no idea what happened to the dozens and dozens of personal "Friends" and others (Vietnamese Army Personnel I worked with) I had developed during my 18-months tour of duty.
That was when I left the Republican Party and have since, been an "Independent, Conservative."
Will there be a Kotex dispenser in every head?
