    that they believe that sexual assault is a right and a privilege.

    Maybe it's part of the ritualized brutalization that's supposed to make soldiers both obedient and angry, and thus able to carry out orders with all of the vigor resulting from pent-up rage.  Then we punish the grunts (who, after all, are responsible for their acts) while letting their superiors go free.

    Probably no surprise, therefore, that according to a recent Harper's Index, 53 percent of sexual assaults in the military are male-on-male.
