    Seriously?

    Many many men can't handle that, either.
    How do you have any proof that "no" women could?

    Too bad they don't make films like that anymore.

    Of course I wouldn't mind. You either trust your partner, or you do not. Why the **** would the 'powers that be' take into consideration whether or not the partners of their enlisted trusted them or not?

    No. There are but they can't do the extra heavy stuff.
    What 'extra heavy stuff'? And do you have proof that no woman can do this 'extra heavy stuff' and that ALL men can? Is this 'extra heavy stuff' required work on a sub?

    ok, but isn't just the heavy lifting its the psychological attack of being submerged and not seeing the sun and staying in close quarters.
    And?

    I can prove it as there has never been a women in a submarine before!
    No, all that proves is that no woman has been given the chance. Before women were given the right to vote, no woman had ever voted. That wasn't an indication that women were physically/mentally incapable.

    But SURELY folks must know what's required to work on a sub and be able to come up with a set of minimum physical requirements.

    You can take that to the bank.
    I think I read that women were allowed into Ranger training.

    Although Army regulations bar women from infantry assignments, some females are detailed to accompany male infantry units to handle searches of Iraqi women. Recently Rangers, the elite infantry force in the US Army, has been open to women.

    That's what this idea is.

    Subs are small, their crews, smaller. What happens when they lose a gal cause she's pregnant? Eh? Say... 2 weeks before deployment? Hard to replace her with a well trained person ready to go. Happened on the Inchon quite a few times, we'd deploy and have departments and divisions short manned cause of this. And now we'll lift the ban on SUBS!

    Oh screw reality, readiness and all that mean evil ****, let's be PC!!!

    Whatever, glad I'm out and more so glad I ain't on subs, this would just piss me right the **** off.

    "We're sorry Petty Officer Vicchio, you're just gonna have to do more work and work harder cause Seaman Jones and White are both pregnant and can't deploy with us. We'll TRY to get someone on in Hawaii and you'll have plenty of time to train them up. I know I know, ya'll have 8 people and just lost 2, but hey we're a diverse Navy that doesn't discriminate, change your attitude mister!"


    Sometimes, I REALLY hate people.
    Men are more likely to be injured in car accidents, physical confrontations, and accidents. They shouldn't be allowed to board.

    African Americans are more likely to be murdered. They shouldn't be allowed to to board.

    Mormons are... See where I'm goin with this?

    Navy will soon let women serve on subs

    I think the time has come to allow women to serve in all areas of the armed services, including subs.
    I am not sure if it's a generational thing or what but I have a very hard time with women serving in combat, flying fighters, bombers, fighter-bombers, or any aircraft directly involved with combat. I see this serving on subs by the "fairer" sex as nothing more than an attempt to use the military as a social experirment. And NO I do not see the issue of women serving in combat or subs as the same as the racial intergration of the armed forces.

    This is not an issue of gender bias it's an issue of biology!!!

    Doesn't make it right or smart even if political pressure has forced women to serve in Ranger type roles.

    Re: Navy will soon let women serve on subs

    On a truly off-topic subject, I've been wondering if the thread title indicated that that esteemed member of this debate forum, Navy Pride, will soon personally be allowing women to serve on subs.
