    Default Study: repeal of DADT will lead to a 'free rape zone'

    The conservative Family Research Council yesterday said that a repeal of DADT will lead to soldiers having unwanted gay sex and that "homosexuals in the military are about three times as likely to commit sexual assaults as heterosexuals are."

    Senior Fellow for Policy Studies at the FRC, Peter Sprigg, told reporters that his study on "homosexual assault" in the military was based on analysis of public documents with the help of former US military officers. He said that in 2009, 8.2% of sexual assaults in the military were perpetrated by gays. The most common type of gay attack, according to Sprigg, is "one in which the offender fondles or performs oral sex on a sleeping victim."

    Talking Points Memo asked Sprigg if he was serious when he said that if DADT were repealed, "non-consensual same-sex assaults" would not be reported:

    In a number of these cases the victim was sleeping or intoxicated," he replied. "Under those circumstances, their memory may be clouded and so the evidence may not be strong enough to stand up in a court-martial and actually prove guilt on a charge of forcible sodomy for example. Nevertheless, something inappropriate may have happened...and the victim will think twice about coming forth."
    Retired Col. Dick Black, who worked in the Pentagon when DADT was drafted in 1993, clarified:

    We faced this when we started tightening up on rape," Black said. "Women were intimidated about coming forward they'd be called sluts or you know they hung out in bars or whatever."
    Now there is some professional analysis! The full "study" can be read here. And BTW, does Sprigg look a little like Ted Haggard?Study: 'Don't Ask Don't Tell' Repeal Paves Way for 'Free-Rape Zone'

    Here's the study, if you can stomach it. Homosexual Assault in the Military And if you go to the gawker link, you'll see that the dude indeed does look like Ted Haggard. Personally, I think they're fuck buddies.

    It's one of the more bizarre claims this week and I am so ready to see pictures of this douchbag getting sucked off by a priest that I can taste it.

    I dismiss anything the Family Research Council puts out as quackery. They are hateful people with an agenda.

    I read that as a "rape free zone" and was sorely disappointed at the potential hot military porno that would be lost

    Whew.

    I don't understand the math here ... am I missing something fundamental?

    I don't see how gay soldiers could end up doing any more raping than their straight counterparts.

    I guess the ever existing rampant sexual assault of women in the military/by the military is, as always, no big deal.

    Whew.

    Oddly, I wrote the headline but when I went back into this section I read the same thing. Go figure.

    I think there's a connection between homophobia and dodgy math skills.

    Seriously. I guess heterosexual assault cases are "natural." These neocon religious nutcases are obsessed with men fucking each other. You'd think if it was so disturbing they wouldn't bring it up so damn much.

    Man I gotta take another look at myself then. I suck at math and have been telling people I'm straight.
