The military has a problem with sexual assault.
As many men as women have come forward as victims. Likely this means that the problem for men is even more vast then they admit.
Look at this article on the problem.
Notice how the equal number of male victims suddenly disappear when it gets personal. Not a single male victim is named or quoted. Nor is their victimization described.
And, get this, in the article they’re going after military instructors for “improper sexual conduct” which, I assume, means having presumably consensual sexual contact with people under your command.
In the case of prisoners in juvenile and adult detention facilities, the vast majority of “improper sexual conduct” is female staff on male inmate. The power a female guard wields over a male inmate is far greater then that of a military instructor over a trainee. Do we hear about this? No.
In the comments individuals are clucking and crowing about the immorality of covering up these indiscretions, all the while ignoring and minimizing male victims.
I’m curious if it’s homophobia (ignoring male-on-male assault)? Or heterosexism (ignoring female-on-male assault)? Or is it just plain virulent misandry?
I think I’m going to propose that the dividing line between man and ape is bald faced hypocrisy.
Also thanks to the tumbler feminist in my previous post for the heads-up. She linked to this piece in an effort to show rampant misogyny but, of course, all she did was reveal a deeper well of misandry.
And down the rabbit hole we tumble.
