I'm not the most handsome of men, but every time I was at sea, I got propositioned at least once every 4 days. On one carrier, we were out for only 10 days, but 16 Sailors were caught in the act during that time. The ship's CO was so hacked off that he held public Captain's Mast in the hangar deck the evening before we pulled back in to Norfolk, and he threw the book at every single one of them.
I agree with Karl that women should be able to do the same jobs as men in the military. It is both men & women not performing to the US military's standards that I am worried about and how it will affect the efficiency of the navy especially on such important ships.

Has the rest of the navy had problems with this? What about Canada, or any of the other countries that have already integrated the submarine fleet. Hell, to the best of my knowledge this had now been a significant problem for the Canadian INFANTRY, never mind the submarines.
