You're right on your stats at 30,000 thats what I heard recently myself but awhile back the number was 80,000 women and children.

I can't speak for all women, only for myself. Should this be discussed, of course it should but some women are in situations that being pregnant would just cause more drama.

If you're the father of a living child and you'e not living with said child it's your responsibility to care for that child. You had the fun of making it...why should it always be up to the mom to care for these children alone with no help from the fathers..

You know, I heard those stats and was shocked that men are assaulted more than women in the military.

So many ppl don't understand that rape is an act of violence not sex, it's power and control by someone who doesn't have it in their own lives.

Just like the ones here who judge everyone, they don't have a voice so they lash out in a cowards way...

That's why the GOP turns a blind eye to rape and tries to downplay it. They really think it's the victims fault in everything whether its rape or any aspect of life. They think that people on welfare are just too lazy to create a corporation with offshore assets. Don't like Monsanto? You're "jealous" because cornering the market on poisoning the world wasn't YOUR idea...because you're "lazy". They really think like that.

The GOP is a party in turmoil, I can't believe some of the stupid shyte that comes out of their mouths.

Like in TX, A RAPE KIT is also a cleanout kit...lmao!

What the hell are they drinking down there?

Turmoil indeed! They continue to alienate HUGE numbers of Americans, lately, particularly women. I think women are better than half the population? Throw Blacks and Latinos into that same mix and it maybe a couple decades before they get in the White House again. It's a ridiculous... strategery.

You've got several factors here.
Predators prey on what they see as weak.
Be it women, children, or other men.
They don't care. It's just not a known
statistic b/c the majority of men/boys don't
report rape. A good number of women/girls
don't either but more so when it comes to men.

Plus you have jobs that have a small amt.
of authority. Predators are drawn to jobs
where they have a little power to lord over
others. Jobs like cops, fighter fighters, teachers,
EMT/paramedic, even nurses. Most definitely
military. Not all, not even most, but many.
