Sexual Assaults and Cultural Confusion in the Military's New Gender Order
Center for Military Readiness ^ | June 2, 2013 | CMR

Posted on 06/07/2013 6:10:28 AM PDT by marjiwoj

You know things are bad when the Chief of Staff of the Army, General Raymond Odierno, issues a statement to the troops declaring that "the fight against sexual assault and sexual harassment is our primary mission." [1] And Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel has announced that sequestration cutbacks will affect everyone but sexual assault professionals in the military. [2] Let's hope that our nation's potential adversaries don't take advantage of our military leaders' current distractions.

The Pentagon has been hit by an internal explosive device − the latest report of the Sexual Assault Prevention & Response Office (SAPRO). In two hefty volumes, the 2013 SAPRO report documents the dysfunctional consequences of social experiments with human sexuality in our military over many years. Failing to see the big picture, the Department of Defense is moving ahead with plans to extend problems of sexual assault and misconduct into the combat arms...

TOPICS: Military/Veterans; Miscellaneous
KEYWORDS:
Elitist policy makers keep pretending that human sexuality does not matter, and that men and women are interchangeable in all roles. Instead of re-evaluating the consequences of flawed policy changes, the administration is pushing ahead with determined, incremental steps that will extend sexual misconduct problems into Marine and Army infantry, armor, artillery, Special Operations Forces and Navy SEALs.

Never mind the 20% jump in male on male sexual assaults coincident with Obama's abolition of limitations on homosexual presence in the ranks of the troops.

There should be NO such sexual assaults, but the White House and the Democrats in Congress sponsored this one. They should be held accountable for it!

***”the fight against sexual assault and sexual harassment is our primary mission.”***

And how far down the priority list is protecting the American people and American interests?

Looks like 60% of those are homosexual assaults on men. Don’t ask, don’t tell is working.

Pray for America to Wake Up

I would be leery of the showers. The gays should have to identify themselves.

Don’t you think a male gay would “stand out” in a crowd of naked men?

An interesting sub-paragraph:

•Anu Bhagwati, Executive director of the Service Women Action Network (SWAN) referenced the previous year’s SAPRO report for 2012, analyzing 2011 data. before the Senate Armed Services Personnel Subcommittee, “The DoD estimates that 19,300 sexual assaults occurred in 2010, and that while 8,600 victims were female, 10,700 were male.”

more male than female sexual assault victims — Verrrrry Interrrrresting.

Obama’s Pentagon frowns on Christian Chaplins practising their faith. Sexual assaults increase dramatically. Co-incidence?

•Charts in Volume I of the 2013 SAPRO report showing gender breakdowns of completed investigations reveal that 12% of actual unrestricted reports and more than 13% of restricted (confidential) reports were filed by military men. Only 2% of "subjects" (alleged perpetrators) were women, meaning that 98% were men. [8]

•Anu Bhagwati, Executive director of the Service Women Action Network (SWAN) conceded this point in referencing the previous year's SAPRO report for 2012, analyzing 2011 data. Said Bhagwati in testimony before the Senate Armed Services Personnel Subcommittee, "The DoD estimates that 19,300 sexual assaults occurred in 2010, and that while 8,600 victims were female, 10,700 were male."

•Speaking for the Protect Our Defenders group at the same hearing, Brian K. Lewis, former Petty Officer 3rd Class, USN, cited the same estimated figures and added, "To translate this into percentages, about 56 percent of estimated victims in our military are men." [9]

•A line graph in Volume II shows survey results on questions asked to determine the "Percent of Active-Duty Members Who Have Experienced Unwanted Sexual Contact, by Gender." The graph shows no change for women (32% in both 2010 and 2012), but a significant increase among men reporting "Unwanted Touching," from 31% in 2010 to 51% in 2012. This is a 64.5% increase among men, but it appears just above the highly-misleading claim that there were "no statistically significant differences for women or men" in the years highlighted. [10]

Put men in a high stress combat situation, then put a woman in with them. It is like placing an ice cream cone in front of children and saying “Do not touch!”

Now put a homo in a position of authority over men and then scratch your head as you try to figure out why male on male sexual attacks happen.

Christians might want to think about exiting the military at first opportunity... life is not going to get any better for them.

And for God’s sake.. PLEASE do not urge young people (at least those you care about) to enter today’s Armed Forces.

This was a problem long before don’t ask-don’t tell. In 1967 while in the 101st @ Ft Campbell we had a barracks feeler-upper who would feel up guys in the middle of the night while they were asleep. Caught him one night and gave him a practice jump from a 2nd story window of the barracks. Needless to say he failed to obtain a workable PLF and broke a leg. He never returned because back then they kicked them out on an undesirable discharge.

Well, lets keep in mind that this is the most intelligent and most highly educated military in our history. Most have at least a high school diploma and very few come from the bottom quartile of our social/economic spectrum. So, what all that being said the military still can not make the integration of gays and the integration of women into the combat arms work. If we should ever get into a big shooting war that would require the re-activation of the draft I shudder to think of the total breakdown of discipline, morale, and mission that would occur. I’m a Vietnam vet and the discipline and social problems that we had among the enlisted ranks was a disaster, especially towards the end. And, that was without these new variables recently introduced....

I wonder if it even registers on the priority list at all considering the urgency of "path to citizenship" for illegal alien gang bangers.

Just so everyone knows so that no ones life is needlessly lost, the U.S. military will fire upon U.S. citizens. It has happened many times in our history. So don't kid yourself.

It is not really surprising that there were more male than female sexual assaults reported. DADT protected homosexuals, both male and female. In the case of gay females in the military, the officers refused to report woman on woman attacks or even question the attacker. (from anecdotal evidence). I hear that straight women were leaving the military because of the attacks and threats of attacks by other women.

Not surprising that there are more male-on-male sexual assaults, because here are still far more males than females in the Miliatry.
