Military women

No argument from me about the quality of women in the service. The dangers are all to real, and don't discriminate on the basis of gender.

One of our most recent losses was a female Marine CH-46 pilot:

You know what they say about women?


"Hell hath no fury..............."

Firstly great admiration for the Ladies out there.

Secondly!! Hell hath no fury did you read about the "LADY" who popped her boyfriends cat in the washing machine. She got a suspended sentence should have been from a bridge.
 
My experience of military women is they seem to be pretty accurate with a rifle particularly at short range (the kind of stuff matelots need to be good at).

The fact is they are not as physically strong so that must cause some resentment when it comes to the more physically demanding jobs like store ship etc.

The bottom time is that as we have had problems in the past recruiting enough suitable male personnel, if we did not have women aboard we would be running with very large shortfalls of numbers (and therefore even more mothballed ships).

Everyone serving in theatre is deserving of this country's respect.

society consists of all types, sexes and races so why shouldn't those who fight for that society be the same!

Good to see girls stick to it! But come home safe, yeah! (every body boys, girls, even the numpties, they're all somebodies child and no body should have to bury their child!)
 
Girls are OK as long as they don't get all emotional over a bloke, anyone see the hardcore US astronaut in the news? They are some of the most intelligent, level headed people in the world, no? They do a job that nearly all of us here couldn't. And she goes stupid over some bloke who isn't even knobbing her (allegedly).



Tongue firmly in cheek.

What the men tend to forget is this;

As long as a woman is pulling her weight onboard etc, that is all that counts. The same can go for men, I have known more men whinge about having to do something, more than a woman.

Equal ops, LETS BURN THOSE BRAS!

Ok a lil OTT
