I'd like to have paragraphs of mildly well written words explaining my feelings but all I can really think to say is that this seriously sucks. The folks around you in the military are supposed to be your comrades, brothers, sisters, friends, buddies. It saddens me to hear of this and especially upsetting that nothing is done because of it or just plain ignored and the people who are the victims are instead ostracized for trying to report a misdoing. It's sad, really sad.

Well I got four sentences. Just shy of a school defined paragraph.

ahhh, yes, yes, yes, I remember reading something like this earlier this year. On Veteran's Day when we commemorate our troops, I think it's important to also be aware of the violence/rape that goes on within the military.

don't even make me dig up articles where men in naval bases in japan raped Japan school girls.. although some might not have been rape just parents pissed off that american had sex with their daughter.

This shit happens and its covered up all the time why are so many amazed by the disgusting nature of the way we are??

This is part of the (Human condition). Being in the military only helps you lose personal wars against human inhibitions that are typically, socially unacceptable. This is one of the issues argued during the late 19th century, as to why women should not be allowed to be in the military, because simply enough, most men are sexually attracted to females.

"Men are wolves", wasn't enough to keep women from joining, and now that they are in, this is going to happen no matter what kind of laws you put to it. I don't need to hear the details of the video because I know what rape is, very well, I have seen a few rape victims in my time of EMT-training.

To that regard, I don't personally have an opinion about whether women should be in the military, but I think it's important people understand what they are going into before they make life changing choices. As for the men who were raped, that sucks just as much, and is a candid example of how inhibitions can be changed so drastically.

It's such sadness that they prefer to keep their image than to serve justice.

In the world of information and media, your image is justice.

Chrome, it's a pity you spend so much enery instigating conflict, because every now and then you put up a post like this, that I totally support and agree with your opinion on the matter. Yet I'm hesitant with you because you jump from serious to childish at the drop of a hat.

Why?

Dude I agree with your "Karma" concept.I have similar thoughts.

It's not a dirty "little" secret,it's a dirty "major" secret.Such a matter can't be dismissed to be a little fact.Guardians are turning to assaulters,so upon whom the nation would rely upon for protection.When those peoples take a step forward to quench the sexual desires they perhaps forget what they are been appointed for.Well those blockhead sexual beasts just do their tasks & leave but more pathetic are the situation the victim has to face.Despite of being in an organization that guarantees to protect,it's like you have to zip your mouth & act as an volunteer or dummy to provide sexual service.No normal man can understand what it takes to bear such an incidence but it's also surprising that a woman denies at this truth & refuses to support!!!!!!

So for what reason are they acting like this?is it out of fear or they like it the way they are being treated in the military(to those non-supportive women).If they like it,I would say you better prefer to start a military brothel & join there,at least if women like you would be there those soliders might not target their descent female colleagues.If it's out of fear then also you are supporting them.If we will look through the history it's was only a woman who raised voice to grant voting rights to women.No revolt is easy nor is short but it has to begin from somewhere & by someone with a handful of people to a army of rebellion.Being quite out of fear will worsen this situation & who knows your coming generation might have to face it's daring consequences if such peoples were left unpunished.

If you can't live for yourselves,at least try to live for the coming generation.The society claims to be advancing & progressing.Is this what we say progress.Being deprived of morality is NO PROGRESS.4 ASPECTS EQUALS US WITH ANIMALS/BEASTS-HUNGER,SLEEP,SEX & ANGER,the only aspect that separates us from it is OUR MORALITY.Our ability to differentiate between right & wrong & to elevate our senses to perceive the faint line of difference between right & wrong.If we will go along this sequence we can see people are just turning to "sophisticated cave-men".Those days were gone when people knew what respect a woman,a lady or a girl deserves.A society that lacks the appropriate morality towards women is walking on it's path to doom.Soliders who must serve to protect the weak & the innocents are acting like devils.We can't blame this entirely upon the higher officers because there's no one to support the victims & it's obvious that the stronger always inclines the circumstances to it's favor.So when when the victim is weaker & the sinner it stronger,such incidents will always be hidden beneath a greater image of the organization,though morally how disgusting these might be.In today's society moral has no value before money & power & more pathetic is people don't bother to unite to bring up a moral cause.These soliders are acting like those in the mediaeval age,except that the rape victims were of the defeated nation & now the victims are those among their own organization.I guess they have an attitude of supremacy as they think when they are risking their lives to protect the nation so their act needs no explanation & those women must bear it as well those other must support it & come forward to provide themselves as a bi***

And why only military or US.There are several other organizations & nations who stay quite upon these incidences.It's because they value their image more than morality,yet are forgetting that how serious this problem would become for their coming generation.

I never did understand why the power brokers and/or decision makers got a wild hair up their rump and opted for integrating women into the male military. It isn't like it's rocket science to figure out potential for sexual harassment, rape, and worse incidents were going to rise exponentially implementing that policy.

You cant be more right it happens every where.

Whomever who surpervisor is, then needs to be passed over in the chain of command and continue to push the issue. To think that your Superior officers are mature enough to understand the issue is an ignorant stance. There are gang bangers, Race Supremists, Sexists, etc in rank positions. Step over them if they are unwilling to assist in such issues.

Hard to stop this since the higher ups also rape.
