Trotta also alleged that "feminists" have demanded too much money to fund programs for sexual abuse victims. "You have this whole bureaucracy upon bureaucracy being built up with all kinds of levels of people to support women in the military who are now being raped too much," she said.

Shawn was skeptical of Trotta's argument, and posed that some would say the programs are necessary to protect those victims. Trotta responded that the purpose of the military is "to defend and protect us, not the people who were fighting the war."

With your attitude Miss Trotta, you don't deserve to have anyone fighting for you. It's bad enough our Military have been abused and lied to, but then to have to listen to this as well?

The comment about 'Feminists' always surprises me when it comes from a woman. A woman, like Miss Trotta, who if it weren't for Feminists, would not have a job giving her opinion in the Mans World of TV. Thank your lucky stars lady, and the Feminists, you get paid to speak that drivel, same as any man now.

First, this person needs to know that rape is the sexual expression of violence, not the violent expression of sexuality. One needs to look to resentments and hostilities on the part of males that go unaddressed. Second, even if rape were fundamentally sexual in psychological etiology -- which it is not -- to suggest that males cannot control their sexual urges ("What did they expect?") is to infantilize them. Surely we do not want to suggest that our male fighting forces are no better than children, where their more primitive urges are concerned.

Well. Where to begin with this, really? Her remarks are so indicative of rape culture in this country, of the nonchalance and outright disregard so many have towards victims of sexual assault. It's really quite breathtaking, in a horrifying way. So, is she advocating that rape victims - which, Ms. Trotta forgets, come in both genders - just shut up? That there shouldn't be any programs to help them? That we shouldn't have women in the military? She is saying a whole lot about rape without actually making any statements about how the military should be run. She talks a lot without actually offering any valuable solutions. But again, I wouldn't expect anything less of someone who says WITH A STRAIGHT FACE that the military is to "to defend and protect us, not the people who were fighting the war." So if one soldier murders another soldier in a barracks, nothing should be done about that because there is no need, since, according to her, they don't need protection. Does she realize that these are people too, not automatons. I honestly don't even know what this woman is thinking.

Fanned.
I don't think she IS thinking. I think she wants to carve out a position for herself so much, that she will say anything to appeal to the MEN that control Faux , and we all know what charmers THEY are.

Gob forbid we expect our service people (men) to act as mature moral human beings and not rape their fellow soldiers. What were we thinking.

In a he said; she said situation, who should I believe? The woman? The man? How am I to get at the truth since men and women lie and they also tell the truth. Can I use a polygraph? Can I give they a drug to impair their inhabitions? Or should I just flip a corn-heads or tails?

Women in the military should expect exactly the kind of respect given to men in the military. No more, no less. End of story.
