Questions about the competence of women

Remember the USS Fitzgerald collision with the Phillipines boat? And how certain officers took the brunt? Now this:

Hi, Stacy.

During the early weeks after the USS Fitzgerald was speared by a lumbering Philippine container ship, it was noteworthy that the captain and a couple of admirals were publicly named, but not the actual officer in charge, the officer of the deck. (OOD) The other person who should have kept the Fitz out of trouble is the person in charge of the combat information center, the Tactical Action Officer. That individual is supposed to be monitoring the combat radar, which can detect a swimmer at a distance of two miles.

Not until a year later, when the final reports are made public and the guilty parties have been court-martialed, does the truth come out. The OOD was named Sarah, and the Tactical Action Officer was named Natalie, and they weren’t speaking to each other!!! The Tactical Action Officer would normally be in near constant communication with the OOD, but there is no record of any communication between them that entire shift!

What is sticking out like a sore thumb is that there has been a cover-up here, bad for the Narrative and members of the hated demographic, the white male, has gone down while the real perps got away with it.

Why? Why, in our society, do women and Muslims continue to get away with things scot free?

Then we get onto my constant theme here about women’s competence – they should not be in charge of anything involving life and limb.

My further comments

# OOD was Sarah Coppock, Tactical Action Officer was Natalie Combs.

# Lt. Coppock pleaded guilty to dereliction of duty.

# However, the ship’s captain, in this case, Cmdr. Bryce Benson, is ultimately responsible for the actions of his crew.

It’s like this – if you put your two children, let’s hypothetically say twelve and eight, in charge of steering your runabout while you sit at the back working on the engine, something happens and you are thrown into the propeller, who is to blame?

Well clearly your Sarah and Natalie are because they did it but you then get into the N1 question, the one overriding all else – were those children competent enough to be in charge of that machinery? And what were you doing working on the engine while it was running, not watching your kids who should never have been in charge?

As S McCain’s informant said, “The damage control officers were usually some of the biggest and strongest men aboard, able to close hatches, shore up damaged areas with timbers, etc.”

You see where this is going.

So yes, the father in that hypothetical and Bryce Benson on the Fitzgerald, were ultimately responsible for the disaster by proxy. Those girls had diminished responsibility.

Ah but that’s the crime I commit now – [seemingly but not actually] relating or equating women to children and that is the single greatest issue facing us after the Muslims. In certain specific fields, e.g. flying planes, in combat, driving cars and so on – you know very well which areas they are – women are not competent. Running large businesses as the top dog, not the 2IC – that’s another.

This has always been the issue with women – they’re built differently, they think differently, they move differently, they have different perceptions and concerns and ability levels [e.g. Natalie not speaking with Sarah] and yet, against that, they are adult in years and in many other areas, they’re as hot on the job as any man, moreso in fact – particularly in meticulously following process, running families etc. They do it better than any men I know.

This all comes down to effing feminism and the notion that you can put square pegs in round holes, trying to make out that there are not spheres of competence. With men in those roles on that ship – the two would have been hauled over the coals and publicly blamed in the media. Not so if they’re female and that is the whole point I’m making.

An analogy with gender removed

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tenerife_airport_disaster

Having posted a few times on this and before that, having listened to the voice box recording and having read what was going on, the issue was that the flight engineer saw the situation in an epiphanaic flash, saw what was wrong, suddenly realized the lack of competence of the captain who’d been out of day-to-day operations for some time. The Captain was a hero of the airline, featured in airline magazines, a celeb, and no one, least of all a junior officer, was going to question that fine old man’s competence when he cut corners.

And why did the Captain cut corners? Because there were rules about fly time and unless they took off there and then, they were not going to be able to complete the flight under the time allocation for pilots. Thus he was already tired after the incoming flight.

As I say, it extracts gender from the issue. Who had the ultimate responsibility? In that case, the KLM Captain. But also the flight engineer for not stopping the Captain – job, promotion, awe etc.

In the case of the Fitzgerald, it was not only the mindless laws demanding that everyone is equal and the same but clearly the terror which the feminist establishment [male and female] inspires in ordinary people, now too scared to speak out.

And you watch the vilification I get now for posting this and then decide if you would or not. That, you see, dear friends, is why these things go on.

This post makes more sense in the context of this one:

    “However, the ship’s captain, in this case, Cmdr. Bryce Benson, is ultimately responsible for the actions of his crew.”

    However he would have to be completely blind not to realize that any questioning of the fitness for the job of the women concerned, let alone removing one or both from their role, would have career-ending possibilities.
    However much it might have been about the individuals concerned, one or both would have played the sexist dinosaur compo card and he would have had hordes of the gender-war gestapo and their panderers after him for the rest of his shortened career and beyond.

    Being factually and logically correct is no longer a defence.

    He would have been thrown to the wolves by his superiors, none of whom would be likely to have their lives put in danger by incompetent officers only in position because of an accident of birth. One or both of the women would end up with a massive pay out and/or promotion as a stunt to show how “woke” the Navy is, and/or a glittering career in grievance politics.

    To that extent at least he was no longer in command of the ship.
