Military rape statistics due to hormones?

Umm… really?  So, men between the ages of 17 and 22 can’t control themselves?  It seems that when they’re out in the wider society, they have more success keeping it in their pants.  The sad fact is that men in the military are more likely to commit sexual assault of some kind than civilians.  Training and physical abilities aside, it seems like the only social factors that are different are the attitudes toward sexual assault and the role of women in society.  

Funny thing, that difference in attitude — it makes young folks more likely to exercise restraint concerning their genitals, and it makes women more likely to report sexual assualts because they are more likely to be believed.
