John Derbyshire, Columnist, Says Female Soldiers Prone To ‘Victim Hoaxes … Huffington Post A conservative columnist has suggested that female soldiers in the United States are prone to “erratic” behavior and may even make up sexual assault incidents in exchange for cash or attention.

John Derbyshire’s column, published in Taki’s Magazine, is formatted as a list intended to “apprise the US military of some true facts” about military sexual assaults. While the most recent Pentagon survey found that there are more than 70 sexual assaults involving military personnel every day, Derbyshire contends the issue has been blown out of proportion.

There is no equality in close combat. The goal is simple: you physically overpower the enemy and kill them. Don’t tell me about technology, war is about fighting and fighting is about killing, mano y mano.”
