    Navy Pride, I think you may have consumed some rancid spinach. Your logic only works if you apply it selectively...

    A female in the Navy makes a false accusation and takes out a serviceman... ban all women.

    A man in the Navy sexually assaults a female... ban all women.

    Re: Official: Reports of Sex Assault in Navy Increase

    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
    The military in general has been cracking down on sexual assault over the last couple years because of the spotlight finding its way on the high statistics of cases not leading to punishment in the past. As a result, the military has beefed up its programs to educate about sexual assault, make reporting easier, and take cases to non-judicial punishment or courts-martial depending on how strong the case is/severity of the case.

    To be clear, sexual assault does not mean "rape" which would be a separate specification under the same article 120 of the UCMJ. Sexual assaults could be lewd comments, an inappropriate touch, sexual threats, or could mean something more like what most people would think assault means like some kind of violent contact of a sexual nature...but not including rape.

    The reason many of these cases in the past garnered less attention than they do now is because often sexual assault is difficult to prove (typically he said, she said), unless some physical evidence exists. That doesn't mean they weren't investigated, just didn't turn up enough evidence to proceed. Naturally, some females leaving the military have sought media attention pointing out that they had been sexually assaulted and the military didn't do anything about it (which really means the military investigated, but didn't bring charges due to lack of evidence...in most cases, but not all). Now the military is under the microscope.

    Ah there's that famous Conservative "Personal Responsibility" line that I love so much.

    It's not the fault of the rapists, that they rape.

    It's the fault of:

    A) Women who want to serve their country.

    B) Anyone who supported that notion.

    Ah freedom...

    Would it make you feel any better if the people that committed those acts did them outside the Navy?

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





    NORFOLK, Va. September 11, 2013 (AP)

    By BROCK VERGAKIS Associated Press




    Associated Press

    From the article you quoted:

    a growing number of sailors feel more comfortable reporting an assault and believe something will be done about it when they do.
    This is the reason, not the reason you stated. Your position is totally refuted.

    Not necessarily. It COULD be the reason, but it could also be expanding number of women in the navy at the same proportional reporting rate. I brought up much of the same points you did, but its unclear whether it's more sexual assault or simply more reporting of existing sexual assault. Given the recent push for more reporting though, I'm leaning that way.

    Another disgusting thing the military seems to do nothing to curtail.

    So they can be trusted with a weapon and discipline, but they can't be trusted around pussy. Got it, thanks. Says more about the Navy than liberals, just saying.

    Like? No. Indifferent to? Yes. Probably just as bad though.
