Is the U.S. Navy ready for periods and pregnancies aboard our nation’s military submarines?
If not, the maritime military branch had better get ready. Sadly, today, Navy Secretary Ray Mabus announced a policy change allowing women to serve on Navy subs.
Remember, during the Gulf War, when many single female soldiers serving on a Naval supply ship–I believe it was the U.S.S. Ted Kennedy Letterman, I mean the Acadia–got pregnant? Yup, 36 chicks got pregnant on that ship, and all of ‘em had to be shipped home at taxpayer expense. And that was in 1991. In the 18 years since, women are even sluttier and people are far more promiscuous.
Serving on a sub means serving in quarters so much tinier than a ship and doing so for prolonged periods of time submerged. Women in such close quarters can only pose a problem. This isn’t about equal rights or addressing alleged “sexism.” It’s about lots of periods and pregnancies that are both going to occur because the Obamaniks made this stupid move. It’s just human nature that these problems will happen. Moreover, it’s unsanitary, unhealthy, and socially stunting. Does America really need to put women in sardine cans under the sea to prove they have equal opportunity?
Only in lunacy land. And we’re there.
Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus says allowing women to serve on submarines is an idea whose time has come.
And, he says, he sees no major hurdles from the Obama administration implementing the policy change.
Mabus gave no timeline for when the change would take effect. He says officials first must come up with a plan for how to do it, notify Congress of the plan and then the women must complete training to serve.
Mabus says women should have the ability to serve throughout the Navy and the proposed change would be in keeping with that. His comments came Thursday during a visit to Northrop Grumman Corp.’s shipbuilding yard in Pascagoula.
Other reports say women could be on the submerged vessels as soon as 2011.
Yup, get ready for more tax-funded pregnancy leave (or abortions) for military chicks who’ve served on submarines, come 2011.
Tampons . . . now available on submarines.
