New aircraft carrier USS Gerald Ford has no urinals

On July 22, 2017, President Donald Trump participated in the stirring ceremony commissioning a new aircraft carrier — the $12.9 billion, 100,000-ton, 3-football-fields, made-in-America, state-of-the-art U.S.S. Gerald R. Ford.

Trump said: “Wherever this vessel cuts through the horizon, our allies will rest easy and our enemies will shake with fear because everyone will know that America is coming, and America is coming strong.”

What is little known about the new aircraft carrier is this:

The carrier has no urinals — although the vast majority (82%) of the carrier’s 5,000 plus sailors are men, and although urinals are cheaper, more sanitary, and take up less space than stalls with flush toilets.

Peter Rathmell reports for Navy Times, July 21, 2017:

“The new aircraft carrier Gerald R. Ford has all sorts of high-tech gear equipped for 21st century naval warfare. But there is one thing that male sailors will notice is no longer available: Urinals.

For the first time, every bathroom on the Ford — known throughout military circles as a head — is designed to be ‘gender-neutral,’ meaning all of the urinals have been replaced with flush toilets and stalls, Navy officials say.

The vast majority of the 5,000-plus sailors who will deploy aboard the carrier Ford are men, as women account for only about 18 percent of sailors in the Navy.

Bathroom design experts say water closets with seated toilets are less sanitary and take up far more space than wall-mounted urinals. […]

‘[A toilet is] by far a less clean environment than a urinal. By far,’ said Chuck Kaufman, president of the Public Restroom Company, an organization that specializes in designing bathrooms.

For men, traditional seated toilets are farther away, making them harder targets to accurately focus on.

Thus, men who use a water closet are more likely to miss the bowl and hit the floor, says Kaufman.

He says that when men are obligated to pee in water closets, urine tends to build up on the floor, leaving an abysmal stench.

‘A urinal is a target,’ said Kaufman. ‘What is a problem is [with a water closet] you have a very big target and we can’t aim very quickly.’

The only way to ensure men accurately aim into a toilet bowl is to force men to sit down, which is unlikely to happen, said Kaufman.

Moreover, sitting down to pee makes trips to the bathroom take longer.

Kaufman estimates that the average trip to the urinal takes a little under a minute. Meanwhile, peeing at a sit-down toilet takes twice as long, he said.

Whatever convenience that is gained by being able to morph men’s rooms into women’s rooms would also be lost in the amount of space that water closets, and the stalls around them, take up, he said.

When he is designing a bathroom, Kaufman says he is required to allot around 1,500 square inches of space for a urinal. A toilet needs more than 3,300 square inches.

For a ship like the Ford, which cost upwards of $13 billion, every inch of space matters tremendously.

‘Why would you want the ship to be bigger just for fixtures?’ said Kaufman. ‘You can get twice as many urinals as water closets.’

For now, the Ford will be the only Navy ship in the fleet that is entirely outfitted with gender-neutral bathrooms, said Bill Couch, a Naval Sea Systems Command spokesperson.

Regardless, urinals on aircraft carriers may be a thing of the past.”

  1. Is our 45th POTUS, aware of this? What does our illustrious Defense Department
    Secretary say about this, and he is an ex-Marine? Everything points to the desires of
    this worthless Black turd of a token Tar-Baby of a Muslim, former 44th POTUS, and
    his girlfriend, George “NAZI” Soros. Do the women aboard this carrier, have their own
    section to use, or must they sit with the men? Just asking. Ha!!

  2. O-Homo is the Master of Confusion and waste, Destruction of commerce, Destruction of the American standard of living, Wrecker of the American Military, The destroyer of Moral and pride in this Nation, The promoter of evil and vile behavior in American youth, The importer of the filth of the planet into this once Godly Nation. He Should Have Been Publicly Hanged Years ago, With his evil body hanging where the vermin could get to it. If we all support Trump, The possibility exist that we can save the Country without an internal civil war with millions dead.

  3. The faggot little O and his boy-friend Michael got their way. But, you know what, it’s the dumb-ass Americans that voted for that POS. It’s there fault that in 8 yrs we have amassed another 9 trillion in debt. The faggot has made 100s rich beyond your imagination. All mostly muslims and faggots, I bet SORO’s and the Clintons made a few million out of this deal. Hope you fucks are all happy now.

  4. The O-Homo Filth had the urinals omitted so that all sailors would be trained to sit on the pot like the girls do while wearing their Pussy hats.

  5. Don’t forget to flush, wash and put the seat down…!! Oh, and replace the toilet paper roll….it doesn’t replace itself..!!!! ;D

  6. The insanity of the STUPID WHITE BOY.. i don’t blame the STUPID WHITE BITCH in this case… unless that nigger micheal obama…….oh, never mind..
