The Media is Confused About the Difference Between Soliciting a Prostitute and Sexual Assault

In a report detailing the investigation of SFC Gregory McQueen, who was on trial for soliciting paid sex from female privates under his command, Anna Mulrine repeatedly refers to what McQueen did as “sexual assault.”

While what McQueen did was certainly illegal, saying that it was sexual assault and that the women in question were completely the victims is a bit of a stretch. Had this case took place under civilian circumstances, it never would have been painted in this light. While McQueen’s position does make him more accountable than a typical civilian, it does not turn to pay for sex into rape as Mulrine would have us believe.
