What a shame for us....:waterwork

Last time I checked I was still a girl. ;)

I think they switched to the word "gender", because "sex" can be an act as well as a characteristic. Whereas gender is stricly a characteristic.

Example: When I was little, the forms we sometimes had to fill out would always ask for "sex", to which the boys would write things like "yes please!". But the joke doesn't work for gender.

Just my $0.16 (inflation)

Alison,

Were you born in the UK? Reason I ask is because I just can't seem to ever fix your words on an English accent. Every Brit-lady I have ever met has been quite proper. You know, tea at 4, cherrio, pip pip, and all that rubbish?

Do many US Navy ships dock in your town ;) .

I kid...I kid.

Ted :D

The U S Navy is now more politacally correct, as they have female sailors on them, so there no longer a need to make frequent ports of call, kind of gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "Love Boat" the only thing left to do now is to put a maternity ward in the sick bay.

My gender is masculine, my sex is male, my number is single and my person is first. First person singular, masculine.


Why the big interest in grammar ? Biology is more interesting.

Male to the public, female inside (according to Yin-Yang).

OBVIOUSLY some people are unaware of US Navy shipboard regulations concerning the "fairer sex"
A maternaty ward onboard ship? this isnt startrek yaknow.....
Getting pregnant abord ship is a court martial offence.
dishonorable discharge and posibly prison time (and yes I mean for the female involved)
The Navy DOES NOT tolerate any such activity.
That being said..... looking at females all day but not being allowed to touch them,
dont you think ports of call would become MORE of a need? instead of less........



OPPS..... Just Minutes after posting this I feel I need to Edit.....
The Person I was speaking to actualy WAS in the navy.
My apologies. After rereading my mesage it sounded like some people would think I was being rude. But I will leave the above
text AS-IS and will accept any remarks.
ONCE AGAIN I was not being rude..... just...well.... I dunno.
The military is kinda unhappy when people find CREATIVE ways to get out of duty.
Straight guys have been know to kiss other guys in public IN UNIFORM just to get kicked out.
Worked better in nam.... nowadays the either ignore it or slap you in the brig for conduct unbecomming.
Women get pregnant..... kinda hard to send someone to the front lines when shes undetatchable from a baby.
Mandatory abortion would start a civil war. so would forced birth control medication.
The public outcry of a CHILD being injured onboard a military vessel.... althouth its good for selling newspaper...its not good.
so the only choice left is "dont get knocked up while serving aboard ship"

remember.... people HAVE BEEN courtmartialed for getting a sunburn.
The USAF has succesfuly locked away sunburnt airmen for "distruction of government property"

welcome to the military..... we own your @$$ now........
