Thanks, Obama: Get Ready for Periods & Pregnancies on Navy Submarines

By Debbie Schlussel

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.

Joe, Seattle Dad, & Jarhead: It’s pretty clear that all 3 of you were sex-starved high school nerds that have some deep rooted issues with the female gender. When men show so much hatred towards women it’s obvious they’ve had a bad history with the opposite sex. It’s nobody’s problem that women aren’t attracted to you fugly balding old turds and that you’ve been turned down more times than you’d care to admit.

GrittierThanThou has actually served with women. And so have I. We are both speaking from experience. The truth is women are in some ways physically better than men. They are more agile, faster, they are more detail oriented and thus able to spot the enemy quicker. And it’s very true that they tolerate pain better, perhaps due to the fact that they give birth. Yes, men are usually stronger. But women have their merits as well. TOGETHER BOTH GENDERS COMPLEMENT EACH OTHER.

I am a 20 something year old guy currently serving in the military. I have seen with my own eyes how strong and brave woman can be. I have a lot of respect for my comrades – both male and female. We are all out there fighting for freedom. Both genders have advantages and disadvantages. What’s the point in fighting over who’s better or calling women insulting names? How is that going to get us further along as a nation? That kind of woman-hating, sexist, bitter mentality gets us nowhere.

Hey, Dense Debbie – this has been happening AT LEAST since 1991: http://www.nytimes.com/1991/04/30/us/36-women-pregnant-aboard-a-navy-ship-that-served-in-gulf.html

You should put on your thinking cap before showing your racist proclivities.

Oh yeah but let’s all forget that men are part of this too, maybe we should have all female subs and just get rid of the issue. But of course not because you’re all just a bunch of brainless sexist people that for some reason can’t grasp the fact that women aren’t the only ones at fault. You say there were lines to pay for men to get with a girl, but those men aren’t in the wrong? Men would do the same exact thing if they could get paid for sex. too bad we can put a vagina on you and help you feel what a period is. Or maybe we could? I would love too see you whiny boys have one. Idc just get over it we are every bit as worthy as you.
