    Well you might think its funny but if women can serve in total combat like men it could very well happen.......Now if you want to address the topic then do so but if you want to make jokes don't respond to my posts.......Its more then I can bear and it could be considered trolling and that is against DP rules........thanks.........

    Your in a foxhole and being over run by the enemy......who would you rather have in the hole with you a 100 lb woman or a 200 lb man?
    Tashah. Safer for me, less safe for the enemy.

    Plus, being close to Tashah is always a plus.

    Strength is only really useful up to a point. Given the time and training(you know, boot camp and stuff), most motivated people can reach the point of enough strength to my mind. Past that, I could care less about strength, and care about things like skill.

    When women first got allowed onto carriers and the flight deck, it was simply not going to work. A high stress environment with physically demanding jobs. It actually turned out to be a boon, as there are some jobs that women tend to actually be better at than men. Pulling parts out of tight compartments is a job which a woman with small hands and longer, slender fingers excels at. For some reason, women make great plane directors(those people who use hand gestures or wands to tell a plane where to taxi).

    A problem with having their own subs is and all women crew could not handle the physical requirements involved...........Another huge problem will be wth the wives of the guys serving on the subs........They will never put up with it....trust me...........
    There's no hot racking on SSBNs (boomers) like the Ohio (which is actually now an SSGN), and I don't think it'll be too huge of a deal to see a few women officers on these boats.

    Now, when it comes to fast attack boats which alrady have 3 or less heads (restrooms) and racks are set up literally anywhere there is room (not uncommon for them to be in rooms holding torpedo's, for example) I don't see it happening for a long time. Or until the Navy retires the current classes and actually takes the fact that a cew is going to be aboard when designing the sub, not as an afterthought.

    Re: Navy will soon let women serve on subs

    Odd coincidence sorta, but some one linked to the PBS series Carrier on Hulu down in Arts and Entertainment forum. Since I do have a strong sense of nostalgia about my time in the Navy and aboard a carrier, I have been watching them(each episode is an hour, and there are 10 of them). I just finished watching the third episode a few minutes ago, and it deals alot with relationships, both with those at home, and aboard ship. It catches alot of the things that some have talked about as problems, and shows both the problems, and how they can be handled. It also talks about DADT some, with some gay people in the episode, both openly and not(those not open are blurred out). Great episode, if you can spare the hour, I strongly recommend it.

    Oh, and the guy who introduces himself as a squadron troubleshooter, in white flight deck jersey with checkerboard pattern...that is what I did while at sea.

    Hulu - Carrier: Super Secrets - Watch the full episode now.

    When your fighting in hand to hand combat for your life strength is the most important thing....You need someone that will get your back and most women can not do that, in fact a lot of them would sit down and start crying....

    Working on a flight deck is dangerous but to compare it to hand to hand combat with someone who is trying to kill you is ludicrous.........

    The problem is tthey want to start with officers and then bring enlisted on board as part of the crew.....I still say when of the biggest obstacles will be the wives of the guys......They will not take this lying down.......
