Default And the day has come: women in subs!

Excuse me for being politically incorrect

3 female submariners make history

I reckon it was inevitable in this day and age...I'm sure they'll perform well.

*Yes I know the terminology I've used*

Dolphins, the oldest of the Navy’s warfare pins, are only conferred after a submarine officer has qualified as an officer of the deck and an engineering officer of the watch, passed a tough board and demonstrated leadership ability.
As long as the qualification process was exactly the same as for men, I have no issues and wish them the best of luck.

As a qualified submariner I congratulate them on their accomplishment, but I also see it as them getting no where. The physical standards are still different between the sexes. Make them the same and they will have my full respect and admiration.

...chicks in subs!
I wonder if the more macho sub crew members will view that phrase in the same tone as "snakes on a plane?'...



Seiously, I hope the women do well on board and I believe they will. I do agree the standards should be equally maintained regardless of gender...
