- Since 2006, more than 95,000 service members have been sexually assaulted in the U.S. military
- More than 86% of service members do not report their assault
- Less than five percent of all sexual assaults are put forward for prosecution, and less than a third of those cases result in imprisonment
I hate that I can attest to accuracy of this post. I never reported my assailants. I had a friend who did. She got looked down upon, name called, moved to a crappy shift and generally treated like trash from a good number of people in our command, including some superiors. The male who molested her got a “talking” to, a slap on his wrist and then essentially promoted. And that was on shore. I can’t even begin to tell you what happened while we were on the ship. It’s just unbelievably horrifying.
Reblog. This is real. This is horrible, beyond belief. I am without words.
This movie is on Netflix.
You have no reason not to watch it.
Superiority has a face and a reputation that is not pretty.
Yeah, I know all too well about this shit.
And most of the people in power are still male. Only 20% of the entire Armed Forces are female and a LOT of these old heads don’t like that women are allowed to serve alongside men.
It goes beyond physical assault. It’s a wearing down thing too. A lot of the men I know in the service bully women to the point where they don’t even want to be apart of the service anymore.
And it’s RAMPANT.

For the record, International Men’s Day is

These are all so good.

This tag somehow turned into the best thing ever.
screenshot from drafting my newest map project; 50 smiling faces of missing/murdered indigenous women from west of Edmonton. it’s important to me to see actual human faces on maps portraying this kind of violence, and more than anything i wanted to showcase photos of the women smiling because i think it’s one of the few ways to begin to grasp how beautiful & unique these women are.
