  • Dod Survey that the Military Sex Abuse Scandal is Based Upon - Part 2 (For Your Comments)

    I will not do what you are “advising” me to do. I don’t take orders from you or anyone else, get it?

    I’m sure you already read the above dismantling of your vaunted DoD report WITHOUT READING IT.


    LOL. You are a bloviating fool. You admit that you have no idea what's in the report or the statistical data, all of which is publicly available, and yet pretend you have the intellectual high ground. Not going to waste time arguing with a hamster like you. For the record, all your claims are wrong. Go read the survey data yourself. If you think the survey is garbage--ok, that's fine--but if that's the case, then a rational person wouldn't use the 26k number either, which is from the survey. Nor would he pretend that the 19k to 26k means anything, since it is all within the statistical noise of the surveys. Of course, if you weren't a prick absolutely dripping with pride, and actually looked at the survey data, you would realize that a larger category of sexual assaults was counted in the most recent survey relative to the earlier ones, which also removes the significance of the 19-26k change. But I'm sure you already knew that, since your bright intelligence doesn't require you to actually look at the readily available unfiltered survey data (which shows that you're 100% wrong of course...). You should leave analysis to minds better than yours. I sincerely hope you're no older than about 14, which would be the only excuse for your celebrated ignorance.

    A long time ago, FR had some rational people. They've all left or been kicked out. All I've seen for the last couple years has been imbecility like yours. People who decide in advance what they want to be true, and twist everything to fit their narrative. People like you have destroyed FR, and make us all look like idiots. This will be my last post on this site, since your idiocy is like a stench to me, and a perfect exclamation point to the long train of stupidities that have been uttered here in the last few years.

    Doubling down, eh? That’s kind of funny, because this is one of those rare instances in life where things are extraordinarily cut-and-dried. It boils down to this: there is an official DoD report which is publicly available. You claim that it says X because you read some articles by journalists who claim it says X (which, as a FReeper, it’s a bit surprising that you haven’t yet realized that journalists are almost universally idiots). I claim that it says Y because I have actually read the report and it does in fact say Y. The report is available to you as well. Yet you choose to ignore it and go on a chest-beating rampage. Read the report.

    Yes, I was too rude in my initial post to you, and for that I apologize. But your repeated responses have been unhinged. Seriously, read the report. It’s publicly available.

    I have spent a lot of energy arguing against the gay rights lobby. When false numbers are thrown around, however, it only weakens the good arguments that are to be made, good arguments of which there are plenty.

    “Apparently you were “exposed” to male on male least-severe grabbing of butts and who knows what else. “

    By the way, I’m genuinely shocked that anyone would go here. You are a vile human being if you believe it is ever appropriate to accuse a fellow person here of being the recipient of sexual assault.

    Oh you have LINKS, then you must be correct.

    Genius: You’re making assertions that are FALSE, based on FALSE assertions by journalists. Look at the ACTUAL DATA. Not some moronic link by a journalist who cannot read. Go to the DoD SAPR website. Download the DMDC survey report. It is hundreds of pages. Read the data. Yes, NYTIMES screwed up. Yes, WND screwed up (not surprising).

    READ. THE. REPORT. Why do I know what’s in there? Because I’ve had to spend the last few weeks full-time reading and analyzing it for work. You’re totally out of line. Cool down, then apologize for being an insulting fool. Pull your foot out of your mouth.

    Again: approximately half of the 26,000 victims are male and half are female (it’s slightly more than half male, but not by much). Of the male victims, about 40% were assaulted by a male, about 40% were assaulted by a female, and the other 20% didn’t reveal which. This is all in the DMDC report which the articles you cite are misquoting. Go to the data, not the journalist-filtered BS.

    You are way out of line, and making a big fool of yourself.

    Then you repeat this absolutely false line: “It was mentioned that 2% of the over 26,000 (say, 520) were women.”

    READ THE DATA. The DMDC report does NOT say that 2% of the 26,000 were women. It’s garbage, as I already told you.

    Good grief. Please look at the data. Not sure where you guys are getting this supposedly 25k number of male-on-male assaults but it’s totally bogus. Of the 26,000, roughly half are male victims, and half are female victims. Of the male victims, about half have a female perpetrator and roughly half a male perpetrator.

    And yes, if you actually look at the data, instead of spouting off about what you wish were true to fulfill the conclusions you’ve already decided in advance, you’d find that the male on male crimes do in fact tend to be the least severe, i.e., the butt grabs, etc. Anyone who has ever spent any time among jocks or frat boys would not be shocked.

    BTW - how much would someone have to pay you to lie down in 6" of raw sewage for 9 straight hours in order to repair a ruptured sewer line under a dialysis clinic?

    If the goal of some of you on this thread was to convince people how great it is to be a plumber, you just defeated it.

    What a bizarre choice for an article picture. That’s at Caltech, not the University of Southern California. And the man in the center is Elon Musk, who is not a professor (which is sort an odd choice since the purpose of the article was to rail at professors). He was the commencement speaker. Every student in the background is someone who just received a Ph.D. in a science or engineering discipline, and who was not required to take any non-math/non-science courses—at an institution in which nearly every professor is an honest and excellent scientist/engineer, with almost no humanities profs at all. Yes, colleges have biases. But perhaps the author of this article needs to go back to school to become a bit more competent.

    If we did not forgive those who have shown repentance and contrition, we would not be very good Christians. None of the three Democrat scumbags you mentioned expressed much remorse for what they did, and they certainly did not begin acting in a way that showed they were turning over a new leaf.

    You have got to be kidding. He's still engaged to his mistress. He has gotten exactly what he wanted. You may not be familiar with Christianity, but in that religion, when one repents, one is actually expected to change in a meaningful way. It's like getting caught in the middle of having sex with your neighbor's wife..."apologizing" during the act...and then finishing the act while your neighbor is still watching. Then walking out of the room with head held high. What's the problem? I apologized.

    Give me a break.

    The resurrection, and the associated new, glorified body for each resurrected person, is central to Christianity. As Paul wrote, without the resurrection our faith is nothing. Happy Easter.

    I've seen studies that put their life expectancy at 42.

    Do you happen to remember what studies these were or how they might be found? I was trying to get decent life expectancy number comparisons for a variety of demographics recently, especially from scholarly studies, and have been completely unable to find numbers for homosexuals.

    Gee, it couldn’t POSSIBLY be that these were a couple bored Catholics on break. You do know that Catholics work at DHS too (it is a massive organization)? You suffer from rather severe narcissism if you think the government is monitoring YOU. Apparently they didn’t teach you Occam’s razor where you got your doctorate.

    Romney’s immigration position is FAR more conservative than Perry’s and that for me is a big issue.

    I agree with you... but the best we can say with Romney is that his position today is more conservative than Perry's.

    So I will take that bow for trying even if I end up with a RINO and then I’ll assume you will take that bow for BHO - because you didn’t.

    What a crappy analysis. The amount of hard-core conservatives who stayed home in 2008 was minuscule. All of them could have voted for McCain and he still would have lost. The reasons Obama won are twofold: 1) novelty (guilt-ridden whites could finally "prove" they weren't racist); 2) Bush pissed off all independents.

    Again, all of the hard-core conservatives who stayed home in 2008 could have voted for McCain and he would have lost. You can't win a presidential election when your predecessor has killed off all independent support.

    Mark this date: we’re done as a society. As this becomes normalized throughout the military, fewer and fewer good men will be willing to join. This is the day the military begins its mutation from a somewhat politically correct organization, but that is filled with some of the best Americans, into what will eventually be a bunch of armed lefties. The military never would have been willing, to date, to follow orders against the American populace. But 20 years from now, when the best men have been drained out and replaced with immoral, godless heathen—we’ll find out what happens.

    I agree with you for the most part--my only point is that the mistake is not in calling those on the left "progressives" but rather in not asking them where it is they are trying to progress to. In the long run I think we'll do better for the country by educating people about the vicious history of the word "progressive" than we will by labeling the left as something else. I want to hang the label of progressive around their necks, complete with its horrifying history (e.g., eugenics as one example). I want them to have to answer for it. Calling them something else gives them an out.
