“The young folks that are coming into each of your services are anywhere from 17 to 22-23. Gee whiz — the hormone level created by nature sets in place the possibility for these types of things to occur,” he said, during a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on sexual assaults in the military.
So the reason sexual assaults in the military are at epedimic levels is because young men have hormones…. So it is just a natural occurance like hair growth which can’t be controlled. That is the dumbest sh*t I have heard in a long time. I was once 17 to 23 and I had hormones but somehow I didn’t go around assaulting woman. I know lots of other men who also passed those age ranges without committing criminal activity.
I like how the military acts like they can’t control this issue. When you sign up for the military you lose all your rights. You eat when they tell you to eat. You sleep when they tell you to sleep. You wear what they tell you to wear. You run when they tell you to run. You speak when they tell you to speak. You follow orders and show complete discipline at all times…or else!
The military is not some drunken out of control fraternity. “Soldiers follow orders or people die….It is that simple” (Jack Nicholson). For some reason the military leadership can completely control every aspect of a soldiers life (with absolute discipline) except when it comes to protecting woman from sexual assault. With that they are powerless because hormonal boys can’t be controlled.
Just take a bunch of those generals (sitting in front of congress today) and start removing some of their ranks, and stripping them of their commands. Then you watch how fast this sh*t gets cleaned up.
