    Eleven per cent of women serving in the reserves or National Guard experienced rape or attempted rape, compared to 1.2 per cent of males. More than half of the incidents take place at a military work site and during duty hours, and in most cases military personnel were the offenders, according to the long overdue report of the Department of Veterans Affairs released yesterday.

    ================================

    Women couldn't find jobs in Bush's domestic economy. So they joined the military where they found rapists waiting! It's hard to live like that!

    From your article, jackass

    "Congress authorized the report in 1999 for completion in 2001 to investigate whether reserve forces experience sexual trauma at rates similar to those suffered by active-duty forces. "

    Who was in office during half of that time?

    So the sex harrassment problem in the military, both active duty and in the Service Adacemies is hetero on hetero. Why is it they are so hell bent on regulating homos? Who is the problem? Not homos. So when facts dont conform to theories they seem to stick to the theories.

    25% of college women report being raped or assaulted, a much higher figure than the military numbers. Leave your homosexual rape fantasies out of this thread, it has nothing whatsoever to do with this topic.

    Oh, I don't know maybe the homosexual soldier is more likely to view the barrel of his gun as an instrument for anal insertion rather than an instrument of self defense.

    What is sad is that you really believe this, even though we know you attempt to disguise it as a joke.

    Actually, anything homosexual makes Ian uncomfortable because he's not secure in his own sexuality. He's a classic case of a closet self loather.

    Possibly. Or he just likes to push people's buttons via internet message boards. Either way...

    Dude, don't take it personally just because I find your lifestyle repulsive.

    I know of one incident when I was at Ft. Stewart. A guy everybody knew to be "a little to the left" met a new guy that just came to the unit. He invited the guy to his place to watch some movies and have a few beers. The new guy didn't know "lefty's" reputation because he just got there. After having a few beers, "lefty" attacked him and raped him.
