Also stop discharging pregnant females from the service make them serve their full service time.
It was discussed on the radio station I listen to. Many thought it had something to do with not being deployed. But why so high in the Navy and not all the branches of the military?

Simple. Opportunity. Apparently the opportunities are more frequently available in the Navy. Either that or non-consensual sex (or rape to those of us in the real world) is out of control in the service. I have heard that rape/sexual assault is pretty common and that it frequently goes unpunished these days.

My guess would be having to serve sea duty and wanting to get out of it has a lot to do with it.

What's long and hard and full of seamen? A submarine!

Was stationed on the USS Holland AS-32 in Holy Loch Scotland from 6/79-2/82, was amazed at the ingenuity the sub crews took to break items that were supposedly unbreakable. Give them a tack hammer and an anvil and they'd have the anvil broke in an hour!

Hump like bunnies without due diligence...the result can't be "unexpected."
Unwelcome perhaps.
Unplanned might even apply.
Unexpected? Only if you're stupid.
If only half the crap I here stories about is true, military dorms aren't nearly as boring as we've been led to believe. As I understand it, that sort of behavior at sea is frowned upon by the navy.

Copy & Paste from Yahoo News-
A teacher from Mariemont, Ohio, is suing her school district, claiming discrimination. What makes the case unique is that the teacher, Maria Waltherr-Willard, suffers from pedophobia, a crippling fear of young children. She claims her disability led to the discrimination.

We first saw the news over at the Cincinnati.com. The paper reports that Waltherr-Willard began her career as a high school teacher, a position she held for decades. She was reassigned to teach in a junior high in 2010, despite, she claims, being assured earlier in her career that she would not have to teach younger children.

According to the Enquirer, pedophobia can lead to shortness of breath, vomiting and feelings of terror when around young children. Waltherr-Willard claims that she was discriminated against based on her age (she's 61) and her disability.

"It's a tough phobia. You can't really get away from [children] when you're outside," Dr. Caleb Adler, associate professor of psychiatry and behavioral neuroscience at the University of Cincinnati, told Cincinnati.com. Adler did not treat Waltherr-Willard.

The backstory, as described by the Enquirer, goes as follows: Waltherr-Willard taught foreign languages in high school for many years. Several years ago, word got to her that her district was considering putting those classes online, a move that would have had an effect on her position.

Waltherr-Willard apparently spoke to parents about the district's decision to eliminate face-to-face French courses. Parents spoke out, and the district was not amused that one of its teachers was stirring the pot. Waltherr-Willard claims she was sent to teach at junior high as a kind of punishment for speaking out. She eventually resigned her position.

"Good Morning America" reports that the lawsuit says "both parties agreed the phobia and anxiety disorder fell under the Americans With Disabilities Act and exempted her from future transfers within the school district."

Parts of the lawsuit have already been dismissed by a federal judge. Three allegations remain. The case is scheduled to go to court in early 2014.
