    VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. -- A Navy tradition caught up with the repeal of the U.S. military's "don't ask, don't tell" rule on Wednesday when two women sailors became the first to share the coveted "first kiss" on the pier after one of them returned from 80 days at sea.

    Petty Officer 2nd Class Marissa Gaeta of Placerville, Calif., descended from the USS Oak Hill amphibious landing ship and shared a quick kiss in the rain with her partner, Petty Officer 3rd Class Citlalic Snell of Los Angeles. Gaeta, 23, wore her Navy dress uniform while Snell, 22, wore a black leather jacket, scarf and blue jeans. The crowd screamed and waved flags around them.

    "It's something new, that's for sure," Gaeta told reporters after the kiss.

    "It's nice to be able to be myself. It's been a long time coming."

    For the historical significance of the kiss, there was little to differentiate it from countless others when a Navy ship pulls into its home port following a deployment. Neither the Navy nor the couple tried to draw attention to what was happening and many onlookers waiting for their loved ones to come off the ship were busy talking among themselves:

    David Bauer, the commanding officer of the USS Oak Hill, said that Gaeta and Snell's kiss would largely be a non-event and the crew's reaction upon learning who was selected to have the first kiss was positive.

    "It's going to happen and the crew's going to enjoy it. We're going to move on and it won't overshadow the great things that this crew has accomplished over the past three months," Bauer said.

    The ship returned to Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story following an 80-day deployment to Central America. The crew of more than 300 participated in exercises involving the militaries of Honduras, Guatemala Colombia and Panama as part of Amphibious-Southern Partnership Station 2012.

    Both women are Navy fire controlmen, who maintain and operate weapons systems on ships. They met at training school where they were roommates and have been dating for two years, which they said was difficult under "don't ask, don't tell."

    "We did have to hide it a lot in the beginning," Snell said. "A lot of people were not always supportive of it in the beginning, but we can finally be honest about who we are in our relationship, so I'm happy."

    Navy officials said it was the first time on record that a same-sex couple was chosen to kiss first upon a ship's return. Sailors and their loved ones bought $1 raffle tickets for the opportunity. Gaeta said she bought $50 of tickets, a figure that she said pales in comparison to amounts that some other sailors and their loved ones had bought. The money was used to host a Christmas party for the children of sailors.

    Snell said she believes their experience won't be the last one for gays and lesbians in the military.

    "I think that it's something that is going to open a lot of doors, for not just our relationship, but all the other gay and lesbian relationships that are in the military now," she said.

    Snell is based on the USS Bainbridge, the guided missile destroyer that helped rescue cargo captain Richard Phillips from Somali pirates in 2009.

    I never understood why the military isn't gender segregated.

    @Stormtrooper
    Explain this to me.

    Virginia Beach, one of the top ten safest cities in the USA and the #1 city for lesbian naval-smooching.

    The moment I saw this on youtube I knew your coward dyke whore panties would be full of cream and syphilis. I'm sad a lynch mob wasn't there to skin these bitcches and hang them from a yardarm.

    I hate how women keep propogating the myth of lesbianism. They. just. want. attention. I bet that sailor woman can charge a premium for her diseased cunt on long sea voyages.

    I approve of sexy lesbian action.

    But if they were fat and hideous, I'd be really offended and pissed off.

    You are a paragon of acceptance and tolerance, shining out for all to see and emulate. Further to this, here are some more lesbians.

    You should know better than to ask that question. It's politics, and the political shitstorm that would follow such a decision.

    I honestly don't see a problem with females serving, but I will admit I hated seeing the biased treatment that some of the chicks would get. We'll get excuses from "I have a headache" to "I'm depressed" and all these female sailors/soldiers/marines/whatever suddenly get handled with kid gloves.

    We preach "equal opportunity" all the time, but it's really code-word for "minority/female" superiority.

    Sometimes I like to ask rhetorical question so that people are forced to explain to everybody why their nation is a shitfest. :awesome:
