In the post on USS John S. McCain, the question asked was why or rather – how it happened. One of my thoughts was: “Were wimmin involved?”
This is not as spurious or misogynist as you may think. Look at as much of this video as you can stomach and then answer the question: “Are women serious people?”
I don’t mean are they deadly serious about what they want and about your faults – they are deadly serious about that.
No, I mean that young women themselves and in the effect they have on men around them, create a lack of seriousness, but in something like flying a plane or sailing a ship, that can be fatal.
The instant this vid started and some bint asked: “Boobs or arse?” great foreboding came over me.
It got worse.
Then, I went to comments. Someone had already picked up on the boobs/arse quip by the female, then came a woman’s comment, one Danielle S, pointing out that women should not be allowed anywhere near a cockpit and the video does nothing to negate her view.
Now, this is fair to an extent:
I question the wisdom of allowing a 20 year old to be a pilot. But this is offset a bit by the use of an airbus that has no manual flight controls in the event something goes wrong as it is nothing but a flying computer…….so he will never be required to ever really fly the plane. To me this is nothing but a recipe for future disaster that will in the end cost lives. Also I question the maturity level of a 20 year old male……again this will be a cause for problems.
… but it has its own issues. However dedicated and professional a young male can be induced to be, once bring a nubile woman into the picture and he goes silly, as the vid showed. Even oldtimers who should know better go silly to an extent.
There is no advantage to the airline in having women at the controls. There are several good reasons not to. However they’re usually softer in the cabin, which is where we want them.
