A sexual assault “prevention and response” brochure issued by the U.S. Air Force (USAF) advises victims to consider submitting to their attack, Wired magazine reported on Tuesday.
“It may be advisable to submit than to resist,” the guide (PDF) said in a section labeled, “If you are attacked,” saying victims should make that decisions based on the circumstances behind their attack while being “especially careful” if their attacker has a weapon.
However, there are no instructions in the brochure advising service members to not commit sexual assault.
