After the American Psychological Association (APA) issued reports indicating that “rates of military sexual trauma among men who served in the military may be as much as 15 times higher than has been previously reported, largely because of barriers associated with stigma, beliefs in myths about male rape, and feelings of helplessness,” conservative, religious nut Bryan Fischer jumped at the opportunity to spew hatred at homosexuals.
“One of the pathologies that is associated with the homosexual lifestyle is violence and sexual assault,” said Fischer. “It’s a characteristic of sexual activity in that community.”
Fischer tried to argue that the reports from the APA are evidence that allowing gay individuals to serve in the military is a dangerous mistake that is responsible for much of the sexual violence the APA references.
As Right Wing Watch reports:
Asserting that 14,000 men and 12,000 women the military were sexually assaulted in 2013, Fischer proclaimed that “despite the fact that homosexuals comprise just a tiny sliver of our population, maybe two per cent of the population,” those “two per cent of the males in the military are responsible for more sexual assaults of males than all of the heterosexual men in the military.”
