    Navy will soon let women serve on subs

    I think the time has come to allow women to serve in all areas of the armed services, including subs.
    I can see the fat and butt ugly chicks signing up for that. They would be the most popular sailors on board.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    So...what happens when people become pregnant? I'm not sure you can just pull the sub over and let people off.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    They probably have doctors on boards just in case someone injures himself,surely they can add baby doctor,midwife training,pediatrician and so on.

    Some women CAN do the same as SOME men do. The only offensive thing in your statements is the sheer ignorance about the capabilities of the female form.


    I knew a women was going to be fairly aggressive at the stated truth. Do you understand that a women is not as capable as a man because men produce more testosterone. That helps out a great deal for adapting to carrying large weights on a regular basis and getting accustomed. The average adult male produces 40 to 60x's more testosterone than a women. And just so you know I don't hate women or disapprove of them serving in the armed forces. I just have a firm believe that some areas belong to men only. And testosterone production is one of those things that helps back me up on why a sub should be a men's only area unless the female volunteers for a position in the sub that isn't as hard to work in. Also, the female form is not the problem it's biological. Which you won't get.

    If all you're going to do is avoid answering questions, there isn't going to be that much to listen to.

    I'm fine where I am. Are you confident enough in your understanding to answer my questions?

    You said that before, or at least words to that effect. My response now is the same as it was then - so what? Judge each individual equally, regardless of gender - you will get less women than men, but you will not be discriminating unfairly. At the moment, you are.

    If they have all female crews, then they need to have crews that are physically capable of performing the necessary tasks. Same as men.

    You crack me up......Before you get all defensive......It does not make a rats ass whether women serve on subs or not.............I am just telling you from what I know about it though my experience it would be hard as hell to accomplish....Now go take your attitude to your room........
    Why would it be 'hard as hell'? It's really quite simple to set standards of physical requirements for PEOPLE to serve on a sub and then abide by them. Do they let men serve on a sub who can't lift a measly 50lbs?

    Blah blah blah

    If a woman is capable of performing the tasks required, there is no reason for them not to be allowed to do so. Will there be fewer women than men? Well duh. Of course there will be. But there is absolutely no reason to disallow any PERSON who is capable of performing the tasks required.

    Now, when you can show me that it's physically impossible for any person of the female gender to perform the tasks required on a sub, then you may have a leg to stand on. As it is, though, you do not.

    blah blah blah you are discriminating against me because i am a man.

    i didn'y say that a women shouldn't be allowed on a sub i said that they cannot do the physical things that a man can no matter what you may believe and also their bodies take longer time to recover from stress because testosterone helps in aiding muscle to recover faster and because women don't produce a lot of it. they are going to be more prone to injuries.
