    It might mean wee loved our military career and are saddened by what has happened to the Navy for the sake of Liberals like you and your PC who have probably never served in the military or ever will.

    You poor selfish thing. It must be a great blow for women and gays to be your equal. Maybe you should build a time machine and go back to whatever era does your ego justice.

It is really a matter of looking at all the information instead of just that which fits with what people want. And that goes for whether you are trying to blame gays for committing more sexual assaults now that they can serve openly, blame women on ships for someone sexually assaulting them, mainly in port, or trying to claim that the military is some breeding ground for sexual assaults unseen by the rest of the country or world or any other work place.
    So your contention is that male on male sexual assaults increasing since 2010, which conveniently coincides with the repeal of DADT, is the result of more reporting? I don't believe that at all. I'm sorry to make this generalization about your branch of service, but being gay in the Navy does not have the stigma attached to it that it does in the Marine Corps and most parts of the Army. It just doesn't. Being gay in these testosterone driven environments is not viewed as okay nor is it something that happens a lot. So, with that being said, a Marine actually reporting that not only was he sexually assaulted but that it was perpetrated by a man is almost inconceivable. Reporting hasn't gone up. It's still viewed as weak. For this many more incidents to be reported means that a lot more of them are happening.

    Just like when you buy a new car.
    Except a new car has not been floating for 4 years in seawater when it it is finally rolled out to the new owner. I had not time at sea prior to commissioning than I did in the first year afterwards. Sea trials are a lengthy process.

    I admit, being that she was only 7years old when I was "gonged" ashore, I am sure she had a leg up on the others of the fleet. But I cannot imagine her going downhill so fast as to fall below the NIMITZ.

    Official: Reports of Sex Assault in Navy Increase - ABC News









    NORFOLK, Va. September 11, 2013 (AP)

    By BROCK VERGAKIS Associated Press




    Associated Press



    The number of sexual assaults reported to the Navy has grown by about 50 percent in the past year, which Navy officials said Wednesday is a sign that a growing number of sailors feel more comfortable reporting an assault and believe something will be done about it when they do.

    The Navy said it is on pace to end the 2013 fiscal year later this month with about 1,100 reports of sexual assault. That's up from the 726 sexual assaults reported in the previous fiscal year



    I don't believe that many of these assaults were committed by women.

I come from a long line of military family. My Father served in the Navy during WW2. It was probably because of that that I DIDN'T serve. See....my father loved the Navy, it gave him a life that he didn't otherwise have. But unlike you, my father actually saw combat during ww2 and saw the atrocities of war. Although he respected the military, he provided a life for me that allowed me to go to college and obtain a degree without having to go into the military. This was during the 80's where we were facing the very real possibility of ending up in a war in the middle east.


    The reality is, NP, you don't like the fact that women serve in the military. You don't like the fact that gays can now serve in the military. You are a stubborn old man that would prefer to keep things the way the world existed back in the 50's. Sorry...but the world evolves and the bigotry of the past is getting left behind, despite your attempts to make excuses and project blame in all the wrong places.


    You hate it...No matter how much you deny it that does not change the fact it is true. I don't know if your old enough but if you were you are exactly the kind of person who spit and insult our military on heir return from Viet Nam

    I don't think it has as much to do with the stigma as it does to do with the type of job performed. Gay men, of which I know several and call them my friends, are normally (complete generalization here, deal with it!), again... Normally NOT inclined to pressure jobs that are "testosterone" based. Are there? Without question... But if you were to survey 1000 riflemen and 1000 electricians, I would bet my paycheck that the numbers would be heavily skewed.

    The Navy, by and large, is comprised of Tradesmen. As is the USAF. The Army is as well, when you look at the numbers of support personnel vs line troops, but are still trained to be fighters on a level that most Ssilors and Airmen never reach. The Msrines see a completely different story. Every Marine is a rifleman, as they say. It is only logical that homosexual men would be less inclined to join the heavily testosterone laden Marine Corps.
