My guess is that they’re not screening for offensiveness (obviously); they’re screening to make sure no “libtard” comments get through. It’s hard to imagine what one could write that would be beyond the pale on that site.
These women are wearing wedding rings. I wonder if they got officially married somewhere and, if so, if they waited until DADT was repealed to do so. Having a secret girlfriend is one thing. Having a spouse you can’t introduce to your co-workers is another.
I wish the commanding officer’s quote had been a little better: “It’s going to happen and the crew’s going to enjoy it.” I’m sure that wasn’t as creepy when he said it as it reads.
What is that thing? I’ve been wondering the same thing!
I mean I’ve seen some funky uniforms but I do not remember anything like that hat. Am I crazy? Did I not meet enough Navy ladies all dressed to the nines? Is it new? Who designed something so horrifying?
That started after Giffords was shot. They regularly had to get rid of dozens of comments every time there is some act of violence against the people they regularly advocate violence against so I guess now they’re just being proactive.
I remember there was once a long ass thread they had when another fake “real Obama’s Kenyan birth certificate” was released wherein they poured over it and kept listing all the ways it was TOTALLY REAL and how this would bring about Obama’s downfall and there was NO DOUBT and it was-then, within the hour, it turned out to be so fake in so many ways it was laughable and the debate then came to how the Mods of FREEP should scrub all the posts talking about how they fell for it so as to present a better image to the outside world.
The FREEP owners know they own a shithole infested with shit but only care about image ad begging for money every thirty seconds.
The cynic in me thinks the US Navy chose the two women as a good PR thing despite the “first kiss” being based on a lottery. Why not have two attractive women kissing instead of two butches or guys – it makes it more palatable for average person (“OMG HOT LESBIANS KISSING!”)
