    22 out of 1,500 and were all 22 relived for harassing just women? A whole whopping 1.4% of commanders. I dunno NP, it sounds like you are doing the twist again, trying to use 19 years olds as the equiv of the Commander of a US warship in terms of maturity and judgement. If that were the case we can close down Annapolis and have the kids running the ship!

    So you're in close quarters with the opposite sex for many weeks at a time. Big ****ing deal, the navy isn't the only job in the world like that. You aren't a unique snowflake who has some special right to sexually harass others just because you were in the military, NP. I've worked in close quarters with attractive women for 16+ waking hours a day, and it's never once crossed my mind to sexually harass them. If you can't control yourself, then you can and should be fired. That goes for civilian and military jobs alike.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    Navy Pride blames women for sexual harrassment. Wonderful.

    I just retired this year, NP, I know first hand.

    I think we know

    I understand that spending a long time at sea can cause men to get lonely for physical contact

    Associated Press|


    NORFOLK, Va. - The commanding officer of a Florida-based warship was removed from the post during an overseas deployment after several female crew members alleged that he sexually harassed women aboard ship, a Navy report shows.
    Cmdr. Derick Armstrong was relieved of command in May, about six months after his promotion to the top job aboard the guided-missile destroyer USS The Sullivans. Of the 1,500 commanding officers in the Navy, 22 were removed from the job last year for various reasons

    Its the woman's fault for being too feminine to make it impossible for me to control myself!

    Some man you are dude.

    You know what...you should try spending some time at sea before denigrating those that have.

    Dearest Wicked Weasel,

    I humbly bow in apology for offending you with the "grow up". I am so very, very, very sorry that you were offended. I know you are a grown up and know exactly that of which you speak.

    Having said that, The two questions remain. Pretty please with sugar and honey ... answer them for me so that I might better understand your post.

    Good thing the guy wasn't responsible for his own actions. I know the Navy frowns on accepting personal responsibility for one's own actions. Accepting responsibility for your own actions is a liberal commie thing.
    ymmv
    I may be wrong.
