    I doubt the kind of soldiers that serve on a sub would have such an urge for sex.

    It's not like they spend their lives in the depths of the ocean, miles away from anything female.

    Our military operations should not be dictated by criminal activity.
    Isolated on a submarine that is at sea for several months? How does that happen, exactly?


    I just can't see that being a healthy environment for a rape victim.

    It seems training needs to be looked at overall anyway if we are breeding soldiers to conduct criminal activity.

    I'll post this question again, since no one wanted to touch it the first time.

    What happens when a female sailor finds out she's 3 months pregnant, 2 months into a 6 month cruise? Make sure the pharmacy is stocked up on pre-natal vitamins and keep an OBGYN on board?

    Oh my! Are you suggesting that our military is actually breeding rapists? Gotta admit. That's a first.

    They've never had a chick on board, either.

    Doesn't need to be a rape counselor.

    I just can't see that being a healthy environment for a rape victim.
    How would it be unhealthy? Would it be unhealthy for any other victim of violence? No.

    I bet she could meet or exceed the same standards as a man. And you are assuming she doesn't do cardio training. Again, I think she could handle it if given the opportunity, because she probably would use the same energy and discipline to become good at the grunt work as she does at body building.

    Mandatory birth control. Mandatory pregnancy tests prior to deployment. Problem solved.
