FRC: DADT Repeal Will Increase Gay Rape

FRC: DADT Repeal Will Increase Gay Rape


Rates of sexual assault among people of the same gender would skyrocket if gays are allowed in the military, according to Peter Sprigg, senior fellow for policy studies at the antigay Family Research Council.

Council staffers say they reviewed all the case synopses of 1,643 reports of sexual assault reported by the four branches of the military for fiscal 2009.

"Our startling finding was that over eight percent (8.2%) of all military sexual assault cases were homosexual in nature. This suggests that homosexuals in the military are about three times more likely to commit sexual assaults than heterosexuals," Sprigg wrote. He also said that many discharges under "don't ask, don't tell" were for sexual assaults, though the report does not disclose any percentages or figures.
