    Holy idiotic metaphors, General Welsh! If sexual assault is a cancer, then, without some kind of chemo scheme, will our entire military go down in a vast, simultaneous orgy of rape?

    Perhaps the real issue here is the lack of intellectual integrity to go back and ask where the Pareto Optimal point for combat power is on the gender integration curve.

    If I was a paranoid kinda guy, I might start to wonder at what point the need to integrate our forces is just a Commie plot against our Precious Bodily Fluids.

    To say nothing of our purity of essence.
