firstly, i strongly agree that men can be raped by both other men and women and it is no lesser a crime because it is a man being raped, people seem to think that because a man 'responds' he wants it, sounds simular to the 'she was wearing a short skirt and drinking so she must have wanted it' mentality
as for rape in the army, i don't know enough facts but i do know rape happens in a lot of army's to both men and women, America's soldiers aren't the only one's who have done this, any soldier who does should have to leave the army and seek councelling, it's not an excuse but a lot of soldiers may also act out of carecture because of the difficult situations they find themselves in, even if this is the case, it still isn't a excuse.
|The military IMO
should ban women from combat situations. Support positons only.
i have to agree with that, i also don't think women should be in combat situations, support positions maybe. obviously there are always going to be women who enter the army so i think they need to watch the men more closely and make punishment harsher for those caught raping.
the biggest problem IMO is that the sergents either turn a blind eye or don't seem to care, iv'e seen so many stories where it's just covered up or swept under the carpet and that is just aweful.
