6:50 am
bad if not worse was to receive professional fratelli ation in their chosen career merely because they were raped when you report something. you better be prepared for the repercussions if a man gets accused of rape it's a setup the woman's life i could choose to report it but if i wasn't if you know if they found that what i was saying wasn't to be truthful than that i would be reduced in rank you could lose your rate you could lose rank you could lose your school if you file a false report so. do you want to file a report. with the. everything in the 1st my friend ed to make me they sound leave me to 2 different times to my squad leader and he told me that there is nothing he can do about it doesn't have any proof they actually did charge me with adultery. i wasn't married he was
