Was thinking about novelty shooting targets the other day (you know, Zombie target shooting... Osama Bin Laden terrorist targets... Zombie-that-looks-like-Obama targets) when this series on NPR began talking about the astonishing amount of sexual assault women in the armed services are dealing with... something like 1 in 4 women have been sexually assaulted?  When gun culture is faced with adversity, put your problem on a target!  Maybe that will send the message that raping your comrades is a form of aiding the enemyStop it with the rape!

I hope you will expand this concept to other rapist archetypes. Start with "thought he was 'cool' professor rapist" for students unable to serve in the military.

Hagel Seeks Changes to Military’s Legal Process for Sexual Assault


U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is pressing Congress to alter
military law in order to prevent commanders from overturning sexual
assault convictions made in military court. The move follows public
outcry after Air Force Lt. Col. James Wilkerson was reinstated and his
conviction for aggravated sexual assault overturned. The military has
been accused of failing to address an epidemic of assaults in its ranks.
Recent statistics show fewer than one-in-10 perpetrators were held
accountable after their attacks were reported. Advocates for military
victims said Hagel’s proposed change is only a small step toward
addressing the systemic problem.
