Good for them, but I wonder about the tension that is created during a cruise.

Countdown has commenced for poverty pimp shakedown artist Jesse Jackson to threaten the Navy over the lack of ethnic diversity amongst these new bubbleheads.

Any here on FR who were on the boomers during the cold war? How would six months submerged been with one or two females aboard. Would the tension level gone up or down? Would anyone have gone crazy and nuked Moscow?

Disaster in the making. Sick, evil, wicked idea to have women put to sea on warships, let alone subs. War is not a game or an arena for political correctness regarding deviant social engineering.
There is no need to have women on board naval vessels, we have 150 million men in this nation.
Few people talk about the high rate of women returning from sea pregnant.
If we don’t return to traditional, honorable policy, we have a disaster in the making, as the military is rapidly losing it’s focus on real warmaking in large conflict scenarios.

Gee, I wonder how long it will take before we have our first “Three Dolphin” club members?

I foresee another “Tailhook” or worse.
Every time a female is allowed to enter the military ranks that were exclusively men they started to not only find fault but take umbrage over the “coarseness of the fighting men and their culture. The brass then puts the hammer down on the males and changes the culture and downgrades their combat effectiveness.
The women then get more smug and wander around the males with a haughty attitude and a chip on their shoulders, just waiting to find even a hint of maleness so they can feign even more hurt, get more men in trouble for nothing, and then gain control of every aspect of what used to be an effective combat unit/team/crew.
Be an interesting cruise with those ladies in a boat filled with seamen.

It gives me great solace that the military the Marxists hope to marshal against us patriots when the time comes is the same military that hasn’t won a war since WWII, and is continually being gutted further both in terms of funding, warrior ethos, morale and common sense. Bring it on!

I can hardly wait for the friendly fire torpedoing of these females by their male counterparts. It will be interesting to see what the pregnancy rates are aboard the new “love” boats. The co-ed surface fleet has obfuscated these numbers for years. They are significant.
Another sad day on the road to serfdom...
