Just to add fuel to the fire, by everyone here saying women and men shouldn't be in close proximity, you are by proxy calling every man a rapist. As a man, I find the insinuation beyond disgusting.

That woman caller should be ashamed.

My daughter is retiring as a Sgt. Major after 32 years of Army service. She has never been raped. My late husband was a Marine, my son-in-law is Army, my nephew is Army, I know many, many, many service men and women. None have raped or been raped. I have another daughter who was walking across her college campus several years ago. She was raped.

Default FOX Commentator Says Women In Uniform Should Expect Rape

Liz Trotta is a piece of work.

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“:

Her reasoning is off but she's not wrong.

She isn't talking about captured females, she is talking about fellow soldiers.

The problem with letting yap dogs & chickenhawks vote is they never have to pay for their mouths. They never have to bleed. Until they do. The only real cure for entitled vicious shrews is tossing them headlong into 3rd world nations with $10 and a bottle of nail polish. Tell them to use their superior intellect & omnipotence to figure it out for themselves without daddy's credit card. :::batting eyelashes::::

Silver lining, Obama has quite a diplomatic advantage when FOX is broadcast around the globe. The planet prefers dealing with sane leaders rather than risk retards like these getting in office. Forget nukes. If he's really mad at Iran he should threaten to hurl the Palin menace at them. hahahahahaa

So Mr Sykes, what do you think? Should we pity conservative men over the zombies they're married to, or is their cross to bear everything they've earned?
I actually pity women who think like her. "Conservative objectivity" rarely translates well from the mouths of those from groups most vulnerable to the real implications of that objectivity. Whatever conservative points she has earned by becoming an unwitting apologist for violence against women is effectively tender in exchange for her own disempowerment.
