1/3 of Women in Military Say They've Been Raped.
« on: January 27, 2010, 02:26:56 AM »

"In 2003, a survey of female veterans found that 30 percent said they were raped in the military. A 2004 study of veterans who were seeking help for post-traumatic stress disorder found that 71 percent of the women said they were sexually assaulted or raped while serving. And a 1995 study of female veterans of the Gulf and earlier wars, found that 90 percent had been sexually harassed."Another study concluded that 90% of all women serving are sexually harassed. Another one estimates that 90% of all the rapes do not get reported

I'm inclined to call bs. PTSD is the best possible way for a discharged person to get their healthcare paid for by the government after their discharge.

71%. . . isn't that 2/3?  Anyways, it's their own fault for enlisting. . .

Most women are likely sexually abused.  It isn't just a military thing.  Lots of guys are too.

What definition of rape is being used? Is it actual force they're talking about, or the wording I've seen used in some reports, which count feeling pressured to have sex, or having sex with someone you'd rather not at the time, as rape?

I don't doubt that women have been raped. I do doubt that it's one out of every three.

According to some feminists, four out of every three women have been raped............

Right.

Post script so I don't get crap for this later; I am intentionally making fun of feminist rape culture.

Some les...feminists say that all male-female sex is rape. According to them, most women have been raped.

Only by raping the word "rape" can you come up with figures that high.

Still, a very high number of women actually have been raped. I know of at least three who have been sexually assaulted in the true sense.

The Government rapes me every day :( and i too know of at least 3 women who have been raped or sexually assaulted, I wonder if Spokane ,Washington is high on the average of rape incidents.

Its kinda like grandma sticking her hand in a lions cage at the zoo and getting her arm ripped off.

Its not funny, but its her own fault for going somewhere she knows is dangerous for her to be. Surely these women know its LOADED with a bunch of animals over there, which is exactly why alot of them join that club called the military in the first place. These women should know this, and shouldnt be suprised when some douchebag decides hes gonna be a tough guy and give her what shes got coming, the same way they do with the people they terrorize in the middle east.

No, but it is true, they did put themselves in that situation, with a bunch of sex deprived men in an environment that is designed around killing. . .
