    Navy opens investigation into raunchy videos

    Washington (CNN) -- The Navy has opened an investigation into how a series of raunchy videos, full of sexual innuendo and anti-gay remarks, were produced and shown to the crew of the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise while on deployment supporting the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    I don't see how this would hurt the crew. Besides the anti-gay remarks, it looks like it would build moral and respect for the captain.

    I read this on military.com. I find it highly inappropriate for an XO to be making such videos. It is one thing to be showing such things or something like it, quite another to actually make them as a commanding officer or second in command. And then to tell people that are objecting to them, too bad or something like it. Not becoming of an officer.

    I doubt this guy will be in command of the Enterprise long, if this story is true.

    Is this for real? These are actual serving naval line officers?

    If so, I thank God I didn't join the Navy. These clowns are a ****ing joke. They should be cashiered from the service.

    I didn't really see any anti-gay stuff in there. Just jokes and a poorly made video. This shouldn't be taken too seriously.

    I can't begin to say how many levels of inappropriate that video is. Your tax dollars at work, people.

    The video may not be taken seriously, but a unit's leaders are to be taken very seriously. These unit leaders can't be taken seriously.

    There was at least one scene in that video that could get that XO/CO into trouble, even without any of the profanity or sexual innuendo at all.

    The profanity wasn't really bad, except that it was pointed out.

    The problem I see mainly, is how can a chain of command expect their crew to follow rules about sexual harassment (making inappropriate sexual innuendo and/or talking about things of a sexual nature) when they don't follow those rules? My berthing got "spoken to" about sexual harassment just for being "too close" to each other and putting up a swimsuit calendar in our lounge. This was so much worse than that. And it was anywhere on the ship with a TV.

    I'm starting to wonder why anyone in the Navy would actually be concerned about a repeal of DADT.

    Well it's not like they took photos of their selves with someone else's uterus or something and then posted it on Facebook.
