Posted on 02/15/2011 8:17:11 AM PST by ConorMacNessa
A landmark lawsuit filed Tuesday against Defense Secretary Robert Gates and his predecessor, Donald Rumsfeld, alleges that the military's repeated failures to take action in rape cases created a culture where violence against women was tolerated, violating the plaintiffs Constitutional rights.
There are three types of women in the Army, says Rebecca Havrilla, a former sergeant and explosive-ordnance-disposal technician. Bitch, dyke, and whore. During the four years that Havrilla was on active duty, she was called all threeby fellow soldiers, team leaders, even unit commanders. Once, during a sexual-assault prevention training, the 28-year-old South Carolina native claims, she watched a fellow soldiermalestrip naked and dance on top of a table as the rest of the team laughed. While deployed in Afghanistan, Havrilla spent four months working under a man she alleges bit her neck, pulled her into his bed, and grabbed her butt and waiston a daily basis. When, on the last day of her deployment, she alleges she was raped by a soldier she considered a friend, it was, she says, the icing on the cake.

Are you serious? Really?
Think that attitude would fly in any corporation?
What an idiot.
Really, supporting the rape of servicewomen? That is contemptible.
Imagine the environment in a unit with homo commanders & sncos.
Someone else said it - we ain’t seen nothing yet...
There is, of course, a fairly easy way to fix this. It’s just not politically correct, so won’t be done.
If men took pride in being a “gentleman”, and women took pride in being a “lady”, there would be a lot less of this stuff going on.
Just another argument to return to a traditional, non-socially-engineered military - strictly honorable men under arms. And those rapists and abusers should be drummed out. If that’s how they treat American woman, they shouldn’t be anywhere near foreign civilian women in a war who at some point might be dependent on American forces.
Indeed “Can’t pass the smell test”.She had a gun and was trained how to fight and she didn’t make out a report about it?
I guess I'm just naive, but I just can't understand the... uh, mechanics of a lesbian rape of another women. Is there.. uh, extra hardware involved?
If our government, and therefore our military, was not controlled by Globalist Banksters and Cultural Marxists women would not be in the military and rape would be a capital crime. As it is now our military is used as a social engineering experiment and to protect the borders of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq while our own borders are wide open allowing illegal aliens to kill more Americans then any Muslim terrorist ever did.
LMAO, what did they expect?
Now they are going to put women in submarines.
I have a niece in the Air Force, she is a bitch and a Dyke.
covered with tattoo’s.
I don’t think she is a whore.
Guess that went right over your head. Supporting the exclusion of women in military combat forces is more to the point.
Extra hardware would be the right term, I guess.
Yes, that seems like backwards thinking. Especially when some female troops hit the bar after work and get $ - - - faced drunk. I've witnessed that firsthand, and had to have a fellow female designated driver take the drunk women home.
One got so drunk one night at a topless bar, she jumped up, pulled her top off and showed the not so well endowed dancer what breasts look like. The bouncer told us to get her and ourselves out of there.
No, I read and understood what you wrote. Anyone who supports the rape of US servicewomen by US servicemen has issues.
Once you have killed a man or had someone try to kill you rape does not seem like such a big deal. For most of human history when one army conquered another army the raping and pillaging started soon after.
I think for men there is a connection between violence and libido. I would have not thought that until my first deployment and experience it myself. I did not rape anyone but after a firefight there was a strong urge to procreate. Talking to other Soldiers this seems to be common.

'Nuff said ?
Few people know me better than myself. You are not one of them.
Thanks for a good catch. See? It taxed my memory. LOL!!
