Air Force brochure for rape victims: ‘It may be advisable to submit’

The brochure was issued to service members at Shaw Air Force Base in South Carolina. pdf: http://www.wired.com/images_blogs/dangerroom/2013/05/IMG_000...

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.

Here's another one

I heard somewhere.

If you think you might rape, but must be around other people, bring a buddy who will help you stop yourself.

Rape prevention

Don't rape.
Don't tolerate those who do.
You may be part of an organization that would prefer you not report rape. They may advise you to submit to limit the evidence. Up theirs.

Defend Liberty!

At least they didn't call it 'Shelter in Place' while being raped.
