    USAF brochure for Rape Victims : ‘It may be advisable to Submit’

    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. Each suggestion listed puts the responsibility for avoiding assault or rape on victims. The brochure also seems to be written with the assumption that rapists do not know their victims, despite statistics indicating that a vast majority of assaults are perpetrated by people who know their victims.

    The author of the brochure is not listed, but it surfaced a day after the USAF’s Chief of Sexual Assault Prevention, Lt. Col. Jeff Krusinski, was arrested for allegedly assaulting a woman in a Texas parking lot. Krusinski was charged with sexual battery. A report scheduled to be released on Tuesday will also show that more than 70 sexual assaults are committed against military members every day.According to a new Pentagon report, there were 26,000 anonymous claims of U.S. military sexual assaults in 2012

    According to Wired, the brochure was issued to service members at Shaw Air Force Base in South Carolina.
