  •  Soldiers are still citizens (6+ / 0-)

    Numerous legal cases over recent years have set this precedent in other areas.  So I find the military lawyer attempting to section off "the military" from society in general where sexual assault is concerned to be laughable.  A raped soldier is a raped citizen and the military is an institution, not a separate country.

    In the military we are constantly told to participate in our communities so soldiers don't end up dehumanized and unknown to civilians.  Common sense too.  But it is infuriating to me that the Pentagon wants you civilians to humanize soldiers while they step out cleanly and briskly flaunting dehumanizing raped soldiers!
