    Femakes are not built for combat, they are built for having children.

    Nothing sexist in that last comment, just a physical fact.

    Exactly my point.

    I don't know? My disagreement is based on the physical requirements for sub life and ground combat based on 12 years of military service.

    I also don't think that was his point.

    This could get really carried away !! Instead of SEALS the female special forces could have the MERMAIDS in the NAVY. Instead of Rangers they can have the BATONNETTES !!

That way there will be the equality that the social liberals like and the real special forces would not be hurt. I have no idea what to call the MARINE female special forces.

    The only problem is that the female special forces would not be allowed to actually serve in combat but they can go to parades and games and ceremonies.

    I wrote this with a bit of T and Cheek but seriously guys combat is no place for women and special forces are for combat so forget about it as they say in New York !!

    You are arguing this from the wrong perspective Navy. Just argue from the fact that a submarine is not like a ship and the accommodations simply can not be met.

    Re: Navy will soon let women serve on subs

    The Royal Norwegian Navy became the first[citation needed] navy in the world to permit female personnel to serve in submarines, appointing a female submarine captain in 1995,[66] followed by the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) in 1998 and thereafter Canada and Spain,[67] all operators of conventional submarines.
