Since the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," which now allows homosexuals to serve openly in the military, same-sex sexual assault appears to have shot up dramatically, WORLD reports. According to a new Pentagon survey, sexual assault is on the rise, and most victims of sexual assault in the military were not female (about 12,000 incidents), but male (about 14,000). It's possible that the discrepancy is even greater, since men -- according to the Washington Times -- are less likely to speak up when they have been sexually assaulted. "How could this happen?" asks Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council. "Well, for starters, the Obama administration ordered military leaders to embrace homosexuality -- completely dismissing the concerns that it could be a problem to have people attracted to the same sex, living in close quarters."
