Quote:
Reports of rape and sexual assault in the US military increased among an estimated 19,000 victims who were assaulted in the 2014 fiscal year, according to a Pentagon study released on Thursday.

The investigation, ordered by President Obama in a year when reports of sexual assault in the military increased by 50%, concluded that the Pentagon has made “comprehensive” progress in decreasing assault. It estimated there were 27% fewer victims of sexual assault in 2014 than in 2012, when an estimated 26,000 men and women were assaulted.


Wow! That's a lot of rape!

The 50% increase is a result of Bill Cosby being named as the attacker.

Is it? 'Sexual assault' is a pretty vague category. What exactly constitutes a sexual assault?

Agreed. I would like to know specifics and also whom? Other military or non military? Finally the definition of sexual assault has been changed (the California university regs now for example), its possible to have consensual sex and in the middle say stop and he's keeps going and that is now sexual assault if not rape when 10 years ago it would be laughed at.
