US Naval Air Station Admits To Penis Skywriting

Seattle’s NBC affiliate reports:

Officials with the Naval Air Station Whidbey Island said one of their aircraft was involved in the obscene skywritings spotted in Okanogan County. Photos sent to KREM 2 by multiple sources show skydrawings of what some people are saying is male genitalia. Some sources have even tweeted pictures of what they saw.

A mother who lives in Okanogan who took pictures of the drawings reached out to KREM 2 to complain about the images, saying she was upset she might have to explain to her young children what the drawings were.

In a statement to KREM 2 News navy officials said, “The Navy holds its aircrew to the highest standards and we find this absolutely unacceptable, of zero training value and we are holding the crew accountable.”

      Too late for the poor parents. The damage had already been done.

      An hour after the skywriting appeared, local police raided a nearby school and found 30 five year olds fornicating with one another on the kindergarten classroom floor.

      • JW Swift

        That’s how it starts, all right…

    • Duh-David

      People who don’t want to parent annoy me.

      I’m reminded how my sister used to bring the world’s best nephews when they were smaller, to see me perform at gay rodeo, often with drag queens. One of them was probably 10 when he asked why there were men in dresses? Without skipping a beat his mother said, “Just like Uncle David sometimes dresses up like a cowboy, they sometimes dress up like women.” That was enough for him and he moved on.

      This sensitive plant in Seattle needs to learn how to talk to her own children.

      • kareemachan

        I agree, but must point out that Okanogan County is nowhere NEAR Seattle.

        • Duh-David

          Thank you. I wondered, but since the report was from Seattle, I erred to that as it sounded better than, “sensitive plant in Okanogan County.”

        • billofjazz

          LOL. Puget Sound, Elliot Bay, Snohomish County, Pierce County and Ivar’s are very near……..
          I must admit to spending 17 years in cities and towns from Pacific Beach to North Seattle. Did you know that there about 34 different ways to get from I-5 to Harbor View hospital?

          • As a long-time resident of Seattle (I came here to go to Grad School in a different century) who has been to every American Indian reservation in the state, I appreciate you pointing this out. Having spent 7 years working at Harborview as part of my duties for the UW School of Medicine and the county-funded mental health clinic, I had no idea how many ways one could get there from I-5, since I usually just took the surface streets from home. I love learning new stuff 🙂

          • billofjazz

            LOL! And not one choice includes a street with any straight lines in it.
            My wife and I stayed in a Navy lodge in Marysville and had to make our way up the hill from I-5 for about 10 days to see my brother who, while living in Centralia, suffered a stomach aneurysm and was helo-vacced to Harbor View. He survived and is still as cantankerous as ever.
            The number I used is a bit far fetched but probably not far off. :-))

            I just checked at Amazon for a book you authored and found “Memoirs of a Reluctant Shaman” but the price for the paperback is a bit much. I read some 5 star ratings of it and the reviewers seemed to really like it.


          • Glad to know everyone survived 🙂 Yes, Amazon and I have a long and abusive relationship that I’m hoping to tolerate, if not repair. I have no idea why they listed one of my books for something like $700, unless it’s the old joke of “you just have to sell one.” I think it’s the last one of that edition, and I have emailed the support staff repeatedly to change the price (which I did not set), but as I have consistently found with the Zon–well you know–crickets. No response at all, and frankly, after a coupe of years I had forgotten about it, until a friend of mine mentioned the same thing last week. Here’s an “uber” link that will list a whole bunch of vendors where it’s available: Most of my gay fiction is under my pen name of Skye Eagleday. To the best of my knowledge, Memoir of a Reluctant Shaman is the first novel to feature a Two-Spirit hero. A friend and I were also part of the Real Story Safe Sex Project. We’re HIV Prevention folks, and were concerned about the fact the highest rate of HIV infections is among gay and bisexual youth. Just so, we took gay/bisexual characters from our existing novels, and used them in new stand alone stories to promote safe sex among gay and bisexual youth, and they’re available for free, to try to put them into the hands of as many youth (and others) as possible. So–if you google “Coyote’s Condoms” you should be able to get a free download, featuring the main character from Memoir of a Reluctant Shaman. If you google Real Story Safe-Sex Project, you can undover a whole load of related stories and artwork for your free enjoyment.

            Sadly, we were hoping this would be like “It Gets Better” project, only to discover that even for AIDS Service Organizations headed by openly gay men, and had youth outreach programs, none of them wanted to use our resources. They thought they were great, and the concept was as well, but were terrified that they’d lose their funding if right-wing conservatives attacked them for “recruiting youth.” So–they took the attitude it was healthier for their organization to not actualy do full youth outreach.

            I will say, according to Amazon (when I was still using Amazon–now you can get it almost at any other vendor, like B&N, Apple/ITunes, Kobo, etc.)–Coyote Condoms stayed in the top 25 titles for its genre for over two years, so I know there are definitely people out there who have read it. I will also say it was fun to write :O

        • KevInPDX

          I know a retired Marine Corps aviator who we contracted with to do radio telemetry work. He actually lived in Winthrop, WA, which is in Okanogan Co come to think of it. Also a blow hard and conservative. Really safe pilot though. Heard a lot of stories. Every branch of the military and the reserves has a significant presence in western WA. Almost daily the pilots do a training run down the west side and hang a left at Roseburg or Medford and cut over the Cascades and buzz back up north on the east side of the mountains. Okanogan Co. is the northernmost county on the east side of WA Cascades. The pilots hang a left there to return to Whidbey or McCord AFB.

      • Ragnar Lothbrok

        Curious as to what your particular performance was.

      • David Walker

        Jack and I were “very special friends,” according to my sister when her twins were young and curious why we always showed up together. At my mother’s funeral, she challenged the minister when he insisted Jack couldn’t sit with me because he wasn’t “family.” She most forcefully and wonderfully told him in no uncertain terms that Jack WAS family and WOULD sit with us.
        Her husband, their father, is a fundamentalist preacher wannabe. He was not pleased that his (mere) wife would have such an altercation with the preacher. We noticed we weren’t being invited to what had been family events.
        I have never, ever blamed my sister for caving to the sonuvabitch. Hers is a very taut tightrope to tread. I never hear from the Jeebus Yeller or the kids, not even after Jack died, and it doesn’t bother me. My sister, on the other hand, was completely there for me. Is she a hypocrite? I think not. I think you do what you need to do to get through life.

        I love those Christians who believe the stupidity in the bible that is Deuteronomy 22:5:

        “A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing, for the LORD your God detests anyone who does this.”

        When Christians kick up a stink about this, I ask them exactly when in the garment manufacture process is the gender of the garment decided. If someone makes a fancy gown for a man specifically, is it still “women’s clothing?” And if a woman is cold and decides to wear her husband’s sweater, are we obligated to stone her to death for being an unrepentant sinner?

        Their god has a lot of weird hangups, doesn’t he?

    I gotta turn migratory shortly. But last night’s soap turned out very well–I forced gel (semi-liquid) phase to finish it quickly and intensify the colors. I shot a bit too conservative on color depth and intensity, but I’m seriously thinking of doing this again this evening since the swirling technique turned out well (even if it’s incredibly complicated). It’s so hard already (apropos to the thread) that it was ready to circum…I mean, cut this morning.

      Of course, no self-respecting mommy would let her kids watch Mr Rogers now. “He talks like a fag, he’s probably a pedo, possibly a mo, and what he’s saying is not what god wants kids to hear. I mean, look at my kid. You want HIM to think HE’s special? I’m his mom. Trust me, you don’t want that. It’s just more of that liberal garbage that’s on PBS all the time.”

      • AmeriCanadian

        I grew up watching Captain Kangaroo, The Friendly Giant, Mr. Dressup, The Polka Dot Door, Sesame Street, The Electric Company, and of course, Mr. Rogers. Even as a young child I always thought that Fred Rogers was gay. He certainly wasn’t like any other male actor I saw on TV.

        • marshlc

          Oh, the Friendly Giant. Just mention him and all Canadians over a certain age melt – we all loved him.

  • Beth Sanders

    So inapprorpriate and discusting.

    • Silver Badger

      Ignore it, and it’s forgotten. Raise a fuss and its internet news, which is forever.

      • AmeriCanadian

        Exactly why we all know about it now.

    • stevenj

      Don’t worry. God and his wind will blow it away.

      • William

        The stain will last forever.

      • Beth Sanders

        THat is a very sweet thought stevenj.

        • stevenj

          EIther that or it will get sucked off to the east by a low pressure system.

          PS – You forgot to upvote yourself.

    • TuuxKabin

      Oh, Beth, it’s completely worth discusting. Why, look, we’re discusting it here among ourselves. Do grow up. Look at yourself. Old enough already.

  • Yeah, mom, you got a lot of splainin’ to do.

  • Silver Badger

    Why is it that a mother complaining makes the offence so much worse?

    • David Walker

      Because we need to take the blame for her inability to discuss body parts with her kids. Like I typed elsewhere, from Mr Rogers:
      Some are fancy on the outside, some are fancy on the inside.
      Everybody’s fancy, everybody’s fine.
      Your body’s special and so is mine.
      So mom is inadequate and we’re supposed to harbor her inability to be a good, intellectually-encouraging mom.

    • TuuxKabin

      What’s the offence?

      • Silver Badger

        I saw nothing offensive, but then I’m not a mother.

  • JackNasty

    Attention mothers: grab your pearls and clutch them as tightly as you can.

  • ErikDC

    Apparently this mother has not seen the movie “Death to Smoochy.”

    • William

  • William

    Is this like the Bat Signal?

  • 1980Gardener


  • Harveyrabbit

    Apparently the pilot was left handed.

  • Jacob

    I’m so sick of the ‘I bred so I desrve special attention’ crowd. HRC was wrong; in the first world it only takes a village if you’re raising idiots.

  • William

    Mom should be happy she isn’t explaining this to the kiddies.

  • Bess Watts

    I bet that’s harder than it looks.

  • TexasBoy

    Seriously? Some parents have no idea how to be parents. How about:

    Kid: Mommy, what’s that drawing?

    Mom: Well, I’m not sure, sweetie, what do you think it is?

    Kid: It looks like a 10 gallon cowboy hat.

    Mom: Yes, you’re right, that’s exactly what it is.

  • B Snow

    Tell the kids it’s a stovepipe hat, like Lincoln wore.

  • ECarpenter

    Clearly it’s God’s penis, showing his approval of the equal marriage vote in Australia. Duh!

  • Stogiebear

    Looks like a cowboy hat to me.

    • David Walker

      For Arby’s.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Lady, if your kids don’t know what a penis is, then I guarantee you this stunt should be the least of your concerns.

  • Chris Baker

    ” ..saying she was upset she might have to explain to her young children what the drawings were.”

    Like when same sex marriage was legalized, she had to explain to her kids how gay men have sex? /sarcasm

    Depending on their age you say: “it’s a funny shape” or “It’s the number one” or whatever intelligent parents tell their kids to change the subject.

    Meanwhile, in a town in Portugual:

  • GlennF

    Did anyone else other than me think when first reading about this that the anti-gay bigots are going to have a field day with this and start demanding a return of DADT to the military? I sure hope the specific individuals responsible for this are not LGBT.

  • Snarky

    It’s a top-secret new weapon. We all know the penis mightier than the sword.

    • AmeriCanadian

      I will attest to its power!

  • Squicky

    Nobody gets to have fun anymore.

  • JWC

    A “penis’ a “Texas 10 Gallon Hat” Six of one half a dozen of the other

  • scorpiomike

    What is up with these parents who are always so worried about having to explain things to their children? Give an age appropriate explanation and move on. That or give your kids to a sensible gay couple who can handle having children.

    If your kid is 3 and asks what it is, make up some foolish story and let it go. If your kid is 15 and can’t imagine what it represents, maybe it is time to talk about human sexuality.

    • Opinion Sousaphones

      I am guessing by “age appropriate” you mean that one would not use overly medicalized vocabulary, since a very small child might not know the word, “penis” although they would know what one is. Mostly likely, innocence is more harmed by lies and neurotic evasion than straightforward honesty.

      • marshlc

        If it’s your child,the only reason they would not know the word is because you didn’t teach it to him. It’s a word, a name for a body part, just like Foot or Nose. It’s always age appropriate.

  • Tor

    Easy. It’s infinity connected to a hyperloop.

  • Natty Enquirer

    It’s a very tall hat, children, like the one the Cat in the Hat wears.

  • Professor Barnhardt

    Why would any naval aviation aircraft have skywriting abilities?

  • OdieDenCO

    it’s a tall cowboy hat. you people have dirty minds. ;P

  • Oh come now. How can anyone put homoerotica and our proud U.S. Navy Aviators in the same sentence? Beach Volleyball anyone? Remember, naval recruiting SOARED after this movie!

  • ECarpenter

    It’s nice that it’s an uncircumcised penis, too.

  • Jeffg166

    That is obscene? Donald trump is obscene.

  • EqualityForAll

    Not sure what to say to those inquisitive kids when they ask “What is it?” If you truly are freaking out over this, how about just replying with “I don’t know.”

    She’s not the sharpest mother in the shed – obviously.

  • SFHarry

    I don’t know what the “mother” was so upset about. She didn’t have to tell them it was a cock. She could have just as easily told her young children that it might be fisting. Now that would be a discussion I’d like to hear a christian mother having with her children!!!!

  • teedofftaxpayer


  • Willys41

    It’s Mr. Hankey from South Park given a pair of feet.

  • Andrew X Smith

    Mommy, what’s that.

    Mommy: Oh, that’s the Big Di…pper.

  • Charlie In SF

    it looks like a Ten Gallon Hat (to me).

  • Lane

    Just tell the kids those are chemtrails and be done with it.
    ETA: Chemtrails that will make them queer if they look at it too long.

  • juanjo54

    Knowing some of the navy pilots I have met over the years, I would be very surprised if this is the first time this has happened.

  • Pablo

    I’m offended. The Navy is obviously advocating for circumcision. This a flagrant violation of the separation of church and state.

    “A mother who lives in Okanogan who took pictures of the drawings reached out to KREM 2 to complain about the images, saying she was upset she might have to explain to her young children what the drawings were.”

    Eyeroll. Straight White Mothers…..I know they’re not all bad, but the bad ones sure spoil it for the rest of us. She couldn’t just say, I don’t know, or its nothing?

  • Kenneth Henderson

    “A mother who lives in Okanogan who took pictures of the drawings reached out to KREM 2 to complain about the images, saying she was upset she might have to explain to her young children what the drawings were.”

    Dear, its easy, just say its a picture done by a bunch of immature fly boys, who need to feel adequate. Not unlike us MM2’s, (nuclear machinist mate) who knows we are.

  • FelineMama

    Rorschach Test. Mom fails. Even if it was a penis, wow, how did you get your chillins? They don’t know about difference in boys & girls yet? SAD. Oppressed future adults a comin’!!

  • Robert

    That was not the Air Force. That was God showing us his pleasure at the outing of Roy Moore.

  • Nashoba Darkwolf

    I love how people freak out so much from a Penis being drawn in the sky but are perfectly fine with their stupid crotch droppings playing games like GTA. Another Yay for moronic american values.
