“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”
- Alexander Hamilton. Spiritual father of #NeverTrump
However this ends up. My hope is that the Navy runs a thorough pilot program to test out the idea and if it works, great, if not, great. The mission is more important, but if it can be made to work, that is good too.
Only allow women who can do the job in question...to do the job.
Require mandatory birth control for those who would compromise the combat effectiveness of a unit by becoming pregnant.
Those who violate this last (by becoming pregnant) are discharged from the military.

Sometimes I think we're alone. Sometimes I think we're not. In either case, the thought is staggering. ~ R. Buckminster Fuller
It takes a special kind of person to serve on a fast attack or a trident sub...When they go to sea they are underwater for up to 90 days....Never seeing the sunshine or the light of day.......I don't know why anyone would want to serve on one let alone a woman.....I have been out to sea for up to 90 days and that was bad enough but at least when knock off ships work was called at 1600 I could go back on the fantail of the ship and have a cup of coffee...Can't do that on a sub....

What opposition would there be to subs manned (no pun intended) by an all-female crew? To my mind at least, that would solve most issues...
