For men, combat experience is the leading cause of PTSD. For women, it's sexual assault. This is the real 'war on women'
The Service Women's Action Network notes that rape is always under-reported, and that a military context offers additional hurdles to rape victims
The DoD estimates that in 2010 alone, over 19,000 sexual assaults occurred in the military.
The above is a very sad statement and I considered it very poignant when I read it
But while the above makes me sad the below only makes me question.
I'm thinking I shouldn't only say "wow they don't care" instead question it like hmmm.... what purpose would this route serve?
"Prosecution rates for sexual predators are astoundingly low," they note. In 2011, "officials received 3,192 sexual assault reports. But only 1,518 of those reports led to referrals for possible disciplinary action, and only 191 military members were convicted at courts martial."
The Department of Defense, they further record, does not keep any kind of military sex offender registry that could potentially alert soldiers
So the process is extremely flawed
Now with the number of MST(Military Sexual Trauma) incidents and the flawed process you must now consider the below:
Many of these stories involved a culture of male soldiers attacking women in the desert by ganging up at an outhouse with other men, or by assaulting a woman when she had stepped into the field to relieve herself. The fact that so many women veterans independently described these dangers suggests how systemic, and also how necessarily well-known to commanders, such risks must have become.
Now keep in mind
I've never been in war, so many of you readers will be thinking "Man what is this dude talking about, he must know nothing of war"
I understand that, i've never even been at a firing range, i've only played call of duty lol and of course that's nothing.
But it's not just the systematic way of doing it, it's also what looks like a deliberate flawed process that has lasted HOW LONG?????
So I know many will be offended by what is being suggest, but all I'm doing is asking questions that's all.
I'm sure the women in service at least deserve it right?
What could they gain by it being like this?'
I have no idea, that's why I made the thread
