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

    And if they held women to the same standard and two women made it, what would you say then. Wonderful, all is fair? And not just you, what would women say in general?

    It's the military's fault for having multiple standards. Why don't they get their act together and eliminate this nonsense?

    One standard is equitable and doesn't unfairly discriminate.

    I guess they don't want NOW and other feminazi groups protesting outside the Pentagon.

    Why would you give a **** what "women in general" would say?
    And why the **** would I care if only 2 women made it? What does the number of successful women have to do with *anything*?

    But, there would be a ****load more than that. I know what the men's qualifications were in ROTC, and there was no reason most athletic women couldn't meet those requirements. I did, easily.

    So, they're going to weaken the military because of some ****ing protesters? Seriously?

    That's sad.

    Re: Navy will soon let women serve on subs

    I stumbled on this thread 31 pages late (I'm filling out my tardy slip now).

    The problem is: I didn't know that women weren't already serving on nuclear submarines. I thought that when they were allowed to serve on Navy ships, that meant ALL Navy ships.

    I guess you could say that I don't have a problem with women serving on subs. Real pussy is better than sea pussy.

    Re: Navy will soon let women serve on subs

    Can you guys imagine a submarine staffed with ONLY women?

    ARRRRGGGHHHH!!!!!!

    A sad truth is anytime you throw both male AND female in the mix, there is always going to be a measurable degree of drama that would make an already difficult job even harder. I would put that mostly on the shoulder of the male, however. It shouldn't be that way. But it is what it is.

    Myself, I don't see the major obstacle being whether or not a woman can lift an oxygen tank or not. It's all the male/female drama that nature seems to have hardwired into our being.

    As I said earlier in the thread. I have witnessed, with my own eyes, up close and personal, the drama of co-ed, (if you will,) living arrangements on a land base. That's chaotic enough. When I imagine that similar scenerio in a closed, self-contained, vessel I just see red flags.

    But, on the other hand, I do love women. If I was about to submerge for three months, I can also see the advantage of having them around.
