    Default Politically Correct Navy

    Hi.
    ?Seaman is now seaperson
    ?Man the rails is now people the rails
    ?Man Aloft is now just working aloft
    ?Mannheim Steamroller is now Personheim Steamrollit
    ?Manning battle stations is now just populating critical need stations. (Battle has such strong male connotations...).
    ?The Gangway shall become group causeway so as not to offend the sensibilities of, well, gangs.
    A ship can no longer be referred to as "she." Example: "Look at the lines on that frigate--she really rides well, huh?!"

    becomes: "Notice the lines on that vessel--it is very seaworthy isn't it?"

    The reproduction machine will hence be the duplicate purveyor.

    No more breast line.

    PETA has asked that we stop hurting camels during mooring.

    DCPOs will stop using the MHC designation. Now they'll simply be Covers With Lots of Bolts (CWLB)

    No more screwdrivers--regular or special.

    Man Overboard is history. Just say "Someone fell over the side!" Say it loudly and often--make it become second nature. Say it now in your workspace to accustom others to the loud guffaws it brought here.

    Probably truer than you think Reg.
