The U.S. Navy's new class of carriers will be the first to go without urinals, a decision made in part to give the service flexibility in accommodating female sailors, the Navy says.

The change heralded by the Gerald R. Ford class of carriers starting with the namesake carrier due in late 2015 is one of a number of new features meant to improve sailors' quality of life and reduce maintenance costs, Capt. Chris Meyer said Wednesday. Do you think the Navy is stronger by being "gender neutral"?

    You can have an effective military or social engineering.

    Pick one. Our rivals have already chosen.

    Attitude definitely makes all the difference. I was on a carrier (USS JFK). I never got out of working parties and field day, tho.

    I don't think the Military being gender neutral is the problem as much as it is the PC idiots in the bureaucracy. I can already hear the ladies complaining about the toilet seats being pissed on and not put back down properly lol.

    Would they rather the men piss off the side of the carrier?

    Combat doesn't give points for affirmative action or political correctness.

    Innocent people (Americans and foreigners) will die because of wimpy politicians trying to run the military.

    LOL! Funny to me. I've always complained that some places have one turlet for the ladies to use, and the men get a turlet and usually 2 urinals!!

    If they like it that way, let 'em have it. Glad it's not the Army and the Marine Corps kowtowing to this stuff. :O)

    Seamen should start urinating over the side of the carrier for eco-friendly bathroom.

    Hell we were doing that anyway back in the days when men were men. Now today I can't tell them apart anymore. Oh What a world what a world!

    Not to contradict you there Art but which rival are you referring to... Both China and Russia have long histories of women in their own militaries as well as in their police, fire and other emergency services.
