The best-kept military secret is that most sexual assaults in the US military are now homosexual, male-on-male sexual exploitation.
The Washington Times reported March 13: “The Defense Department estimates 19,000 sexual assaults occur each year, but only 17 percent are ever reported. In 2010 … 8,600 victims were female, and 10,700 victims were male.”
Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Brian Lewis stated he “was raped by a senior petty officer … told by a commander not to report it, and later was diagnosed with a personality disorder and discharged.”
Lewis says, “As I demonstrated, men are a majority of the victims in the military. DoD’s infamous ‘Ask her when she’s sober’ marginalizes male survivors and sends a message that men cannot be raped and therefore are not real survivors.”
With 1,219,510 men serving in 2010, if only 17 percent of all male “rape” victims reported, does this mean, that 62,941 military men were sexually assaulted by other men that year?
Does this mean “only” 5.16 percent of our bravest and best male servicemen were sexually violated by other lust-dominance-driven servicemen in 2010?
Were these damning data widely known and debated before the ban on homosexuality was lifted in 2011?
If not, why not? Precisely when did this traumatic rate of military sodomism abuse begin? Did it begin increasing when the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy was implemented?
Indeed, whether or not such outrageous male sexual assault estimates are 10,700 or 62,941, these crimes …could be a significant cause for the massive increase in military suicides – and revengeful violence.
True, “The military is 85 percent men and 15 percent women.” Still, according to the Naval Personnel Command (2012 Sexual Assault Awareness Month Training Guide), “about 56 percent of estimated sexual assaults in our military are men, and 44 percent are women.”
