    Fox Pundit Says Women In The Military Should Expect To Be Raped

    What the holy fuck????

    http://thinkprogress.org/security/20...ped/?mobile=nc

    The Pentagon announced new rules last week easing the ban on women serving in combat. While conservatives like Rick Santorum are a little uneasy with the news, the announcement only formalizes military practices that were already taking place.

    But Fox News contributor Liz Trottas commentary on the matter took the issue to a whole other level. Shes not really concerned about the controversy surrounding the Pentagons announcement. For Trotta, the issue is having women once more, the feminist, going, wanting to be warriors and victims at the same time. She cited a recent Pentagon report that violent sex crimes in the military have increased over the last 6 years and said women should expect it, decrying more levels of bureaucracy to support women who have been raped too much:

    TROTTA: "But while all of this is going on, just a few weeks ago, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta commented on a new Pentagon report on sexual abuse in the military. I think they have actually discovered there is a difference between men and women. And the sexual abuse report says that there has been, since 2006, a 64% increase in violent sexual assaults. Now, what did they expect? These people are in close contact, the whole airing of this issue has never been done by Congress, its strictly been a question of pressure from the feminist.

    And the feminists have also directed them, really, to spend a lot of money. They have sexual counselors all over the place, victims advocates, sexual response coordinators. So, you have this whole bureaucracy upon bureaucracy being built up with all kinds of levels of people to support women in the military who are now being raped too much."

    To his credit, Fox host Eric Shawn tried to talk Trotta down a bit. You certainly want the people fighting the war to be protected from anything that could be illegal, he said. But Trotta wouldnt have it. Nice try Eric, she said, This whole question of women in the military has not been aired properly, and its the great sleeping giant.

    Just to clarify, Trotta complained about government supporting women who have been raped too much, a statement seeming to imply that there is an acceptable amount of rape one can or should endure in order to prevent more layers of bureaucracy from swooping in to help out.

    What the hell kind of backwards, sexist, sadistic, derogatory, demeaning thinking is this? I also work in close quarters with men. Am I to expect one of them to attack me one night after the building is closed and not do anything about it? Am I supposed to keep my legs open the second I'm on the clock just because I work with men who have supposedly uncontrollable sex drives?

    Oh that's right, I'm a woman. I have no business in the workplace.......

    This is bs. There is a lot if training people in the military have to go through regarding rape awareness and prevention. Generals have been fired for not taking a stronger stance against assault. How this idiot thinks the military supports a felony act is beyond me.

    Exactly. Women just expect to get raped, it's as simple as that, really. At least with the warning you won't be as surprised when it happened.

    The fact that someone needs to get training about this type of thing is what's wrong with this world.

    Its called bystander intervention training and involves scenarios that shows how seemingly harmless advances and borderline harassment can elevate into something worse.

    Why do people think Fox somehow owns the monopoly on dipshits?

    FYI, she also reported for NBC news, CBS news, and at one time was the NY bureau chief of the Washington Times.

    I'm not excusing what she said, but this lady worked for lots of respected news sources, not just Fox.
