Alternet is running a great article (trigger warning for this link) about sexual violence in the military. Notable is the fact that the author offers some excellent concrete suggestions for ways to deal with the problem.
Why is it so important that progressives begin to offer solutions? Because we know what the right-wing “solution” will be if they ever get around to acknowledging this problem: get women out of the military.
Of course, no one has ever explained to me why an extremely high rate of criminal violence by men in the military should mean that women are the ones forced to leave. But that’s conservo-logic for ya.
