A national defense analyst and Pentagon advisor says a recent report concerning the alarming rate of male-on-male sexual assaults in the military should create a roadblock to President Obama's efforts to repeal the 1993 law banning homosexuals from military service.
An annual report from the Department of Defense reveals that over the past year, reports of sexual assaults in the military have increased by 11 percent, including a 16-percent spike in reported incidents in combat areas, principally in Iraq and Afghanistan. While 87 percent of the reported assaults were male-on-female, seven percent were male-on-male.
Lt. Col. Bob Maginnis (USA-Ret.) was part of the military working group that helped craft the 1993 law known as Section 654, Title 10. The law states that homosexuality is incompatible with military service. Maginnis considers the seven-percent figure in male-on-male sexual assaults alarming.
"You've got to come to the conclusion that in the military, where we have a ban for that type of service and we're having a fairly significant incidence of assault that's associated with that type of activity, then you actually may have a worse problem than you think," he suggests.
"Seven percent is not something to dismiss lightly. If you're going to have that much homosexual assault, that's just the tip of the iceberg."
The retired Army officer says the increase of incidents of male-on-female sexual assaults is also very alarming and must be dealt with, especially in a time of war.

This can’t be accurate. Fags only want to be left alone to do their thing in private. /s
It's just some good natured kill-the-old-man tickle fights and good natured "snorkeling."
If you can’t take out a homosexual, maybe you shouldn’t be in the military.
The main fact in this story seems to be getting lost. 87% of sexual assaults are on women. The rules should be: no open gays in the military and no women in combat areas or on shipboard.
More circumstantial proof that ‘gayness’ will never be accepted by society.
‘Gays’ are open to blackmail, and endanger our military readiness.
They shouldn’t even be allowed in the military.
Not if the assailant is higher rank.
“the alarming rate of male-on-male sexual assaults in the military should create a roadblock to President Obama’s efforts” Get real; the Elites don’t give a crap about that.
But wait, aren’t we being told they’re just like us . . . only different??????
When I was in the army, we had a suspected soldier who was drummed out of the service with a discharge in his hands! Don’t ask.
Eric Massa spent 24 years in the Navy and got out in one piece, never being hospitalized - let alone killed - for his long track record of propositioning subordinates.
Somebody has been sniffing the “Gay Spray” that was developed to use against insurgents.
The Boy Scouts
Anywhere these people go evil follows.
This is why people who have never served in the military shouldn’t make policies affecting the military. These Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policies affect the morale of the military, as well as recuiting efforts. What heterosexual individual wants to be placed in a situation that potentially exposes them to unwanted sexual advances by people who have more rights than they do?
If zero and the Dems keep this stuff up, the US military will become as relevant as the Dutch military.
And the irony of the accusation that the pope was indifferent to a child abuse case while he was archbishop of Munich thirty years ago, is that homosexual priests are prominent among among the liberals who hate the pope for his rejection of their anti-Christian agendas. It seems that priests are denounced by the gays for dong what they themselves routinely do to run aways in San Francisco and other gay enclaves.
And what of female on female assaults?
Gosh, that’s exactly what I thought when I read this. Why are people in power so bent on denying human nature?
The assaults on women in the military should itself be a warming that the policies for integrating women into the military were misconceived. Reminding me that the gender walls were erected in the first place to protect women.
The current governments efforts to normalize ‘open’ homosexuals in the military has nothing to do with anyones rights. The modern American left despises our military and wants to destroy it as a culture. This attitude goes back as far as Patricia Schroeder...probably much further. To me, proof that they care nothing about the military’s state of readiness, morale or it’s war fighting capability is more than apparent by the way they literally collaborate with every enemy we have. For them to prevail, they must poison law enforcement and the military with political correctness.
Because Eric was an “officer” and the rules don’t apply sometimes.
Liberals don’t believe in human nature, or that nature defines human sexuality.
If you cant take out a homosexual, maybe you shouldnt be in the military
What isn’t being said is that, for the most part these assaults are ccomminted on gays by gays.
Maybe I’m just thinking about the way we handle things down on the farm.
Never expect a liberal to look at the consequences of their ideas and say “oops, we were wrong”.
It’ll never happen.
Ever seen a prison documentary?
Once crawled into an old sub that was part of a museum exhibit. I can’t imagine my having to love for months with a bunch of guys in that space. REALLY can’t imagine living in such an environment without “rules”. Lord almighty!
They can allow gays in the millitary, but they should require them to take “saltpeter” pills daily and have twice a year STD tests.
While you’re at it, ban women from the military. Seriously.
I taught in the public schools. Superintendents move from failure to failure, getting every high salaries because failure is defined as “success.”
Maybe. It’s been years.
We'll have male on female, male on male, female on female, female on male, shemale on hemale, hemale on womyn.....yuck, this is beginning to sound like a Gilbert and Sullivan libretto !
Exactly - my assumption is that the incidents referred to in this report involve officers assaulting subordinates.
They must have sprayed that stuff all over Afghanistan.
It’s funny, since they are all humanists. I would think they would all be big on biology as the source of all human behavior.
I don't see how they are open to blackmail if everyone already know they are queer.
What are the other 6%? Female-on-female?
If rapes are generally underreported because the victim doesn't want to have to deal with the publicity, that could apply especially to heterosexual victims of homosexual assaults...so the figures may be low.
* rim shot *
Oops, maybe that wasn't the right way to put that.
There is a WWII boat at Patriot’s Point in Charleston, SC that I went through once or twice. No thanks as I am 6’3.
They aren’t all limp wristed little guys. I remember treating a “catcher” years ago. About 6’6” and close to 400 lbs of steroid enhanced gristle. There was no question, nobody could force that dude to do anything.
Because, even if they are open about what they are, they are societal deviants, and like other societal deviants, bank robbers, rapists, etc. they are easy prey to someone who wants to 'hold them hostage'.
That's true, but Evil also goes before and opens the door for them.
Does the study include whether or not the sexual assaults are done by men who consider themselves homosexual? I’ve read that most sexual assaults in prison are done by men who don’t consider themselves homosexual.
These guys are more gnostic than humanist. They think of the human body as an object that they can utilize like cars in which they are passengers. You know ,like Jane Fonda taking herself to the body shop. /s.
A lot of them want to stay in the closet. Most are bisexual anyway, they swing both ways. The open gays would blackmail them.
Much as I might like, I can’t disagree with you.
When I was on active duty many, many, many years ago, the women were basically considered to be fair game.
Most guys were honorable enough to think with their big heads. Some weren’t and thought only with their little heads.
I am sure by now that it is beginning to dawn upon a few dumb heads here and there that any act by “The Divine One” and his apostles is harmful to American interests. The true horror regarding these people is they may really think they are doing well, and that they engage in harmful acts with a good conscience. They can’t help themselves, it is their nature, their very essence. This administration is living proof that Aristotle still has some validity.
