WAIT... WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?

A WET T-shirt controversy has broken out among female firefighters who have complained their new Rural Fire Service shirts become see-through when wet.

Thinner material = cheaper, I suspect? Someone with $$ in their eyes didn't think this through, so to speak.

First!

Too bad the babes aren't smokin' hot.

So, if a female firefighter's outfit becomes transparent when wet in the forest and there's no photographer around to get the shot for a sexy calendar, is it still... hold on, I just heard the sound of one hand clapping.

Clearly, the solution is for all the gentlemen firefighters to take off their shirts and give them to the women.

It's only fair they have the male firefighters wear the transparent shirts too.

Right girls?

Yellow or Orange colors are the best as far as being visible.

Cheap is good, buy more so they can be replaced cheaply.

This is a no issue bullshite issue. Women should be required to wear brassieres at all times especially when working. Unless they want their breasts to be on display. It is their responsibility to assure that their breasts are hidden.

Who is the idiot that let this be an issue?

Slap them down and tell them to "man up" by putting on a bra.

Papa Ray

Dave, I don't see a problem here either.

"We're not doing the job to be glamorous. We're not sex objects," Sydney volunteer Maryann Berndt, 34, said yesterday.

Would it be sexist to agree with her?

*ducks flying machete*

handle leaking hoses

And they complain about their shirts???

so, wear the yellow shirt over the blue one

Maybe if there were prizes awarded after every fire...

*snork* @ Horace.

Bonuses for best hose handler?

Prob'ly the sound of one hand smacking, is my guess.

Women complained that when they sweat, handle leaking hoses, wash or fill their trucks and even when it rains, their male colleagues can see through their new shirts.
How many blog guys read that without getting excited?

Siouxie it would be okay if the firemen looked like this.

DUDE.
