The 'scourge' of military sexual assaults began with the integration of women and then ratcheted up with the repeal of DADT.

So you think that sexual assault is not important? You believe that raping women is okay? You are a sick person.

For many who post here, the mind has a way of shutting down when confronted with topics like rape, civil rights, immigrant rights, gun control or religious freedom for anyone with a religion other than theirs.

That is sadly true, and it bothers me, it's not just on Topix, it's everywhere in the US.

Don't be down, Kit. Bear in mind that regardless of their convictions, a lot of folks fundamentally love their country and want the very best future.
I hope.

Right! That is a very pressing subject on the minds of all Americans. How do we keep men from wanting to get laid? Also on the same subject, how do we keep women from conjuring up gross allegations of rape, when none really occured? But whatever the answer is, it does not require the Sec.of Defence to jump on the bandwagon. His job is not to defend the virtue of women, but secured the safety of America. Get off the soapbox Chuck!

First of all, 54% of the sexual incidents have males as the alleged victims. The victims most mentioned in the news of late have not been raped. While true harassment/assault is unacceptable, in at least one case, there seems to be a bit of the Tawala Bradley going on.

Is true assault/harassment a condition that bears watching and action? Of course, but don't look for action from a WH that blames citizens for the deaths of its embassy staff, or hounds Americans for political thought (hello Joe McCarthy) or violates its own regulations for dealing with the press.

It's also noteworthy that Justice recently told universities that harassment Includes a perception, a feeling that the "victim" has that the "perpetrator" is engaged in an unwanted act. You know, like looking across the table. No evidence beyond that feeling is necessary. Colleges failing to comply will lose federal funding.

We got our DOD all over this. To

It's mostly gay rape. Don't want to talk about that though. Diversity training is to blame too. Unity, unit, unite. Diversity, divide, defeat.

So you're another conspiracy nut who just wants to find some minority group to blame for all your repressed emotions. Sucks to be a bigot like you.

Bigot? If you term an abhorrence for anyone who falsely accuses another, often ruining the reputations and lives of the falsely accused as bigotry, then it is not I with a problem.

Race has nothing to do with, but I guess when one is without argument, then the fall back position of ad hominem is invoked.

Pitiful.

The GOP is too busy firing women for scrutinizing the TEA Party (Lerner) and Benghazi (Rice and Clinton).

THE GOP war on women continue! Guess they didn't learn anything from the last election.

Race, gender, religion,ethnicity, orientation, age, weight, disability or membership in any other protected class, has nothing to do with it. Falsely accusing another is despicable and illegal. In the case of Tawala, costly. She currently owes half a million dollars to the attorney she falsely accused of rape.

In speaking of minorities in America, the US government uses the race and ethnicity for statistical purposes. In many progressive entities, ethnicity is synonymous width race, ala LaRaza. Women, of course, are not minorities, but then again, I'm sure that goes without saying, right?

Again, ad hominem is all one finds in your quiver.

Moron, minority means "less than the majority," it includes homosexuals, transgendered, even disabled .... oh, and asexual being the smallest minority. This is both literate and legal definition. Try to learn something besides what the KKK teaches you, you are a bigot.
