    True, that's why I mentioned the smaller attack subs. It could really be an issue on those. Considering the way the Navy has worked through the other issues as far as women on ships, I am certain they will work this out as well.

    Now if the Army and Marines would follow suit and up the physical requirements to a male level in combat arms MOS for females. I would no longer have anything to bitch about. Ain't going to happen though.

    Unlike DADT I don't really have a huge problem with women serving on subs......I just think in this day and age there are to many obstacles in the way for that to happen........I think the male crew of the subs would love it.......Before there were women on surface ships it could get kind of lonely sometimes.....It would have been nice to see some females sashayingg up and down the passageways, maybe catching a sniff of their perfume.....I just hope if they do it that they put some pretty ones on board....

    Re: Navy will soon let women serve on subs

    There was a Navy Times article a couple of months back that gave a much better picture on how this was to be implemented. In the next couple of years, the Navy plans on allowing some female officers to be put on board some subs, depending on how many actually want to and what the Navy feels like they should do. I'm pretty sure it's only going to be Tridents, attack subs don't have enough room. In the next 4 or 5 years they will be assessing how to integrate and configure subs to put female chiefs and first classes onboard. Then, once they have some female mentors and upper management in place, they will think about putting more junior females aboard. Only certain ratings are actually going to be considered, but they weren't specific on which ones.

    That's a good approach.

    I agree. The only thing that I worry about when it comes to women serving on subs is all that drama that I witnessed on land bases, that involved the sexes. On a sub, there isn't a place to go to get away from it. It's too dangerous of a job for that type of distraction.

    The perfume and the wiggle in their walk is one distraction that I would welcome. But that other drama could cost lives.

    That is true of all ships though. Even on a carrier, you really can't get away.

    Good points, there is no question women on subs would be a huge distraction.....

    It doesn't. Because to anybody who thinks above a 12 grade level, this isn't about personal experience on a submarine. It is a simple matter of ergonomics and what is reasonable and what isn't. Now how many more posts are you going to make because you feel insulted by your own lack of knowledge being exposed?

    So you should probably stop before he starts calling you names. It's like... scary and stuff and you might cry.
    Considering you made 3 posts on me calling out your ignorance, I'm pretty sure I could make him cry.
