The Army is looking into allegations that some soldiers may be involved in an image-sharing message board where troops from all branches of the service are allegedly crowdsourcing naked pictures of female service members. Army Criminal Investigation Command's specialized Computer Crime Investigative Unit are currently assessing information and photographs on a civilian website that appear to include U. The special agents are working to "determine if a criminal offense has occurred," Smith said. First reported by Business Insider , the Army's inquiry comes one day after news broke about AnonIB, a website where purported male service members request naked pictures of their female counterparts by name, rank and duty station. The Business Insider report also said the men allegedly were cyber-stalking and sharing nude photos of their female colleagues. The revelation comes amid an ongoing Naval Criminal Investigative Service into the "Marines United" Facebook page, where members shared nude photos of female Marines, veterans and civilians. The Army defines online misconduct as the use of electronic communications to inflict harm, which includes, but is not limited to, instances of harassment, bullying, hazing, stalking, discrimination and retaliation, Smith said.
Six Men Tell Their Stories of Sexual Assault in the Military
Elected officials and Pentagon leaders have tended to focus on the thousands of women who have been preyed upon while in uniform. But over the years, more of the victims have been men. On average, about 10, men are sexually assaulted in the American military each year, according to Pentagon statistics. Overwhelmingly, the victims are young and low-ranking. Many struggle afterward, are kicked out of the military and have trouble finding their footing in civilian life. For decades, the fallout from the vast majority of male sexual assaults in uniform was silence: Silence of victims too humiliated to report the crime, silence of authorities unequipped to pursue it, silence of commands that believed no problem existed, and silence of families too ashamed to protest. Women face a much higher rate of sexual assault in the military — about seven times that of men.
