Yes I am female, I've been on this site for over a year using my uncles account, subsim too...that's how I got my mods.

I finally decided to open my own account to post and ask questions rather than ask him if I can use his account to post silly questions.

Btw, I have a friend named Sandy who also uses another friends account to view this site and DL mods. I believe she opened her own account also, and has DL'd mods, but just hasn't posted.

Neat to hear that both sexes find this stuff interesting. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I've got some female friends that play video games, some games a bit more/less "gruesome" than others, but it does happen. Some of them are pretty good too, I've had it absolutely handed to me on Xbox on more than one occasion... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

Although I must also say, I've yet to be beaten by them on any computer game http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
Tis all in good jest though http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

@ Donna577,

Welcome to the boat Lt Lake. Please don't hang your skivvies in the head. It distracts the crew. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif : Use the aft torpedoe room instead. Those jugheads back there are always hammered on renatured torp juice, so they'll never notice. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

I don't see any problem with women serving in front line units. I have known many females that could kick my buttowski. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

When I was in, 1970-1982, women were just starting to break out of stereotypical roles. We had one woman in our shop at my last shore duty squadron.

I know that they serve of carriers and other surface ships, the subs are the last "mans club" of the navy.

I've served with many women over the years. As I've said before, I've seen women with more internal fortitude than many men. Just to clarify, so there's no misunderstanding this time (http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif), I've seen women take the initiative at my place of work, when some of the men were hesitant or downright afraid to do so. In my line of business, hesitation can cost someone their life.

Indeed. Recall that the police officer who took down Nidal Hasan at Fort Hood was a woman.

And, here's a report on Sgt. Leigh Ann Hester (http://www.blackfive.net/main/2005/03/after_action_re.html). She ultimately won the Silver Star.
