    Ship Commander Fired After Harassment Claims

    This is the kind of thing that happens when you allow women to serve aboard a Navy combatant.........The Navy should not be used for social experimentation.....It is there to fight our wars..........We have enough problems already without mixing the sexes......If they have to serve at sea then put them on all female ships.........

    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

    How about instead we double our potential military force and you don't harass females?

    How about males treating women with respect, and not sexually harassing them?
    I know it's hard to control yourselves, but I would assume that being a commander would require him being an adult.

    One crew member said he looked at her "like I am something to eat"

    It's like far right wing Conservatives don't expect the military to have the same standards of professionalism as the rest of us. ****, I travel and work with beautiful women AT LEAST once a month. I've worked with women who physically could run circles around my wife and still I've never ever had the urge to cross the line of professionalism. Not once - not only out of respect for my wife but out of respect FOR MY JOB. But Navy Pride apparently thinks our military is not smart/good/professional enough to do just that.

    The funny thing is that women in the military do put up with alot out of professionalism on their part. It is better to turn a blind eye to some stuff than make trouble over every little thing.

    It really is a shame that Navy Pride would blame the victims. However, this is the same person who may or may not have suggested that he had engaged in raping women in an abortion thread a few years back. We had feminists from both the right and left like Felicity (who aside of her religious beliefs WAS a feminist) and 1069 going off on him because of it. The guy didn't show his face in an abortion thread for a few months.
