    Re: Navy will soon let women serve on subs

    To date, there have been no rapes aboard an American submarine. After females are allowed to serve in the submarine service and a rape occurs--and it will--I don't want to hear anyone crying about it.

    Just for the record, this is a terrible idea.

    Define, "physically qualify". Are you suggesting that we suspend gender norming and force females to meet the same physical fitness standards as male service members?

    I can agree with taht 100%, but I just want to make sure we're on the same page.

    Yes, that is what ALL of us in this thread have been saying. All of us on the side of equal rights, that is.

    Different rules for different people only divides the group, sets women up for failure, and creates a burden on the men. It was retarded when they started it, and it's still retarded today.

I also think that any woman who becomes preggers while on a deployment should be treated exactly the same as some one who on purpose does something to get themselves sent home. Shooting yourself in the foot screwes your unit over exactly the same as you going home with child.
    I can see it already: a female sailor shoves off on a 6 month cruise and 1 month into it she finds out she's 2 months pregnant.

    What could go wrong?

    Well, it ain't gonna happen. The day that the military suspends gender norming they'll have a hundred thousand femi-nazis marching on The Pentagon screaming sexism, or dsscrimination, or whatever the hell else they can dream up to be pissy about.

    And if the women in the military can't live up to the same standards the men have, that is no one's fault but the military. And the military needs to fix it by using one set of standards for everyone.
    Typical, blame the military. The military never asked for you to be there, don't you get it? Damn!

    Yes, it's the military's fault. They made the idiotic two different sets of qualifications. If women are weaker in the military, it is the military's fault for giving them lesser qualifications. Whose fault could it possibly be but the ones who made the lax and unfair qualifications?

    They make two sets of qualifications that allow weaker women into the military and then bitch about weaker women in the military? ROFL
