In my on-going series about domestic violence and abuse, it's good to remember there are REAL men out there who abhor violence against women. It's good to identify these men, put them on a pedastal and give them a forum to voice their concerns about domestic violence as well.
My friend, Wade Davis, LGBTQ Surrogate to President Obama, returns to Lette's Chat tonight to weigh in on this issue. Wade recently posted this startling information as posted on MSNBC's website:
According to official estimates, 20% of women serving in the United States armed forces will be sexually assaulted while serving their country. In all likelihood, the real figure is larger than that, given low reporting rates. Even if that number is accurate, that’s as many as 500,000–half a million–women assaulted since the armed forces began admitting women. I want to repeat that one more time, because I want us to really think about it—half a million women, sexually assaulted. That’s about as many people as live in Raleigh, North Carolina.
