I'm confused. Former astronaut Lisa Nowak-- former because she drove nine hundred miles in an adult diaper to kidnap fellow astronaut Colleen Shipman because she was allegedly riding the comet also known as Navy Cmdr. William Oefelein. I can't forget the wig, trench coat, plastic gloves, pepper spray, and BB gun that was found in found in Nowak's vehicle, but she insists she wasn't going to kidnap Shipman----- oh, sure...... the only other option would have to be INTENSE bondage-S&M play. Anyway, I know everyone probably already knows all of this, so let me get to my point.
Nowak, who is in the Navy, will remain in the Navy. She will develop curriculum and training programs. All this happens in April when she joins the staff of the Chief of Naval Air Training Command in Corpus Chrisiti. I can only image what her training programs will be like; I guess she could honestly say, 'Sometimes you have to shit yourself to try to get what you want.'
But seriously, WTF! Why is Novak still allowed in the Navy? If the whole attempted kidnapping detail isn't enough, doesn't the 900 miles in an adult diaper make anyone want to question her sanity?
What really pisses me off is the fact that Nowak is in the Navy after all of this; however, if she were an OUT lipstick lesbian or OUT big ole bull dyke wearing flannel and a tool belt to the base, there wouldn't much debate on keeping her in the Navy. Basically, our armed forces are telling me it is acceptable act irrationally and go 'crazy' because you can't get what you want-- that can be forgiven, but don't you dare be honest about your identity if you're GLBT.
Sometimes I'm annoyed with the American government for its policies and the majority of the American people for staying silent.
