Look minimind, you really are stretching the truth. Silence has been the norm on sexual assault for a very long time. Your ridiculous misinterpretation of statistics is amusing. You can't even get your numbers straight. I'm not certain which link you're quoting, but the Christian Science Monitor states that women account for 95% of the victims in rapes occuring in the military. That means 5% are men. That doesn't mean anything about the sexual orientation of the victim or the perp. I don't know where you came up with the 14% figure. I'm assuming that was either a typo (unlikely) or you have a problem with interpeting the articles. It is also worth noting that a man raping another man doesn't mean that either of them are gay.<quoted text>
From the article;
"The now-benighted concept of "don't ask, don't tell" still holds true in the case of military sexual assault: Due to a climate of impunity and retaliation, many survivors suffer in silence."
Having pointed out your mistake, you also bring up the politically correct denial. It does slip by though, once again with the noting that 14% of reported rapes are males.
You also support that denial by seeking to divert from that by distorting the fact that gay rapes account for 14% of reported rapes. A much higher percentage per homosexual orientation than heterosexual.
You also neglect to note the indication in the other article that they expect that percentage to increase with the repeal of DADT.
The bottom line is this; The whole integration of diversity in the military has opened a Pandora's Box. Something gays denied would happen. Something gays also deny will happen with calling gay unions 'marriage'.
Interestingly, in spite to your gay twirl fantasy clearly disintegrating, you still try to dumb down your denial.
Look at where this discussion has progressed here just today. Mocking disdain about my warning of any problem being present to discounting a clear and present danger.
A very inconvenient truth, isn't it?
The warning of an increase is nothing short of hysteria. As the study I linked to indicates, nothing bad has happened in the last year.
I also love your misinterpretation of this:
While women comprise 14 percent of the Army ranks, they account for 95 percent of all sex crime victims.
The study warns that reports of crimes such as forcible sodomy may increase among males in the coming year with the repeal of the law that barred openly gay troops from serving in the military.Now victims may be more likely to report sexual offenses in the absence of the former Dont Ask, Dont Tell policy, since troops no longer have to fear being removed from the military if it is discovered that they are gay.
An increase in the number of reports because there is less fear of retaliation doesn't equate to more occurences. Just a higher percentage of them reported. Your interpretation of the statement doesn't hold water. You have an amazing ability to see things that aren't there. Don't worry, I expect you to "twirl" the facts to suit your fears.<quoted text>You also neglect to note the indication in the other article that they expect that percentage to increase with the repeal of DADT.
