Hard to take those rules seriously when a moderator can go off like that....

I think you missed the point. He was turning FD's logic back on him. After all, it isn't a insult, it's a compliment.

Nah, it's just some good old lack of comprehension on your part.

Big difference between sexual ASSAULT and sexual harassment, FD.

I give you credit for trying.

Well I guess I also missed the point. Those were not my words they were from the article. Dumb ass.

"Unwanted sexual contact is everything from somebody looking at you sideways when they shouldn't to someone pushing you up against the wall and brutally raping you," said Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill, a former sex crimes prosecutor.

If anyone of you decided to actually read the article that started the thread they did not separate the two in their count in 2012.

"Unwanted sexual contact is everything from somebody looking at you sideways when they shouldn't to someone pushing you up against the wall and brutally raping you," said Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill, a former sex crimes prosecutor.
If you don't take it out of context, you see that the Democratic senator was faulting the military for not separating it out:

Quote:
A study the Defense Department released in May estimated that cases of unwanted sexual contact in the military, from groping to rape, rose 37 percent in 2012, to about 26,000 cases, from 19,000 the previous year.

Lawmakers scorned top brass for failing to break down that data.

"Unwanted sexual contact is everything from somebody looking at you sideways when they shouldn't to someone pushing you up against the wall and brutally raping you," said Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill, a former sex crimes prosecutor.
In other words, the military was trying to lump big cases with small in order to minimize the issue.

I know that was my point as to why the problem seems so bad and the numbers so high. Seems people that have a problem with what I was saying did not read the article and had no idea what I was talking about.
