From: [REDACTED]Being that - let me see, my sources tell me - there are about 10 "ED Women" - I would call this patronizing in the extreme - even if there were 1,000.

Is it patronizing, insulting, or just pathetic?
Of note - ED in Navy talk in Engineering Duty - and be very careful going to the NKO link in the message unless you are using a Windows computer using Internet Explorer. If you are, ahem, using a Mac PowerPC chip powered laptop with Safari - it will force you to restart your computer. Typical Navy IT FOD - almost as bad as the CHART website. Lowest bidder, indeed.
