The military is one of the last institution with some semblance of what it means to be a man, and praises those qualities. However, increasingly it is on the ‘politically correct’ bandwagon and that means if a guy makes a flirt at a girl if she doesnt like him suddenly it is ‘sexual harassment’ or heaven forbid they have sex and she regrets it, because that soldiers life is ruined when ‘rape’ is brought up.
So imagine the sisterhood outrage when a fighter pilot is released from prison after being sent there by a supposed rape.
“But the decision to grant him clemency has infuriated many female lawmakers and advocacy groups, who said the outcome will discourage victims from reporting abuse.”
Oh the horror.
I am not unsympathetic to ACTUAL rape victims, however ‘rape’ has come to mean any guy a girl had sex with she later regrets. It pissed me off so fucking bad back in college where literally half of the girls I knew claimed they were raped, and it was not unusual that each weekend a new girl would be crying about ‘how the frat boy raped her after she got drunk over there all weekend’. Any sympathy quickly wanes when that girl is back over there the next weekend again.
I remember another story about the military that did not get news attention, only a mention on a military website. A naval captain with a good history was pulled and dropped from the navy after making ‘unwanted advances’ towards a female crew mate. Holy shit. Think about this for a second, if men have not decided to completely give up on women (which they are in increasing numbers http://wp.me/p2YaVQ-5x) consider the gauntlet you have to run just to try to date a women:
You have to flirt with her, and run the risk that your advances are unwarranted and get slapped out of the military. (Because remember, if she likes you its flirting, if she doesn’t its sexual harassment). Next you have to balance keeping her happy that she doesnt decide the flip the script and call sex harassment on you anyway. Last, if you ever get to the sex stage, you really run the risk of losing your entire career if either she wasnt happy with the performance, decides she ‘regrets’ what happened, or just wants to take you down out of malice.
So am I glad this generals motion will ‘discourage victims from reporting abuse.’? Yes. I do not think it actually will though. Women have such an insane degree of power over ruining male lives. If I was in the military I would not touch any women there, strictly a cold demeanor that never wavers from strict professionalism.
Thus, yet another answer to where have all the good men gone, rationally they know if they want to keep their job, they’ll stay far away from your skanky feminist ass.
