The Difference Between Hazing and Sexual Assault

In the military, both hazing and sexual assault are against the law. Unfortunately, incidents that would once be considered hazing are now being wrongfully lumped into the much more serious category of sexual assault. Instead of going after soldiers with much stiffer penalties and blurred definitions, perhaps the military should consider more clearly defining the line between hazing and sexual assault. Using logical definitions, it’s easy to see that hazing is a problem in the military, while sexual assault is not nearly as prevalent.
