MJFA Honors Cassie Jaye, Director of The Red Pill Movie, on International Women’s Day

The Red Pill, A Cassie Jaye Documentary

About the Film: When feminist filmmaker Cassie Jaye sets out to document the mysterious and polarizing world of the Men’s Rights Movement, she begins to question her own beliefs. Jaye had only heard about the Men’s Rights Movement as being a misogynist hate-group aiming to turn back the clock on women’s rights, but when she spends a year filming the leaders and followers within the movement, she learns the various ways men are disadvantaged and discriminated against. The Red Pill challenges the audience to pull back the veil, question societal norms, and expose themselves to an alternate perspective on gender equality, power and privilege.

Military Policy Concerns

  • Males are victims of crimes and perpetrators of crimes
  • Males are victims of exploitation, sexual abuse, domestic violence, attempted homicide, homicide, physical assault, hazing and bullying
  • Males are the perpetrators of most crimes committed in the military
  • What percentage of males has post traumatic stress?
  • What percentage of males is considered a domestic abuser?
  • Need to differentiate between disassociation/abuse & escalation in violence
  • More then half of victims of sexual assault are male, they are not reporting.
  • 1 Active Duty suicide a day, most cases not attributed to serving in combat zone.
  • High rates of domestic abuse, alcohol use, assault, & getting into trouble.
  • Males guilty of domestic violence, child abuse, physical assault, sexual assault
  • Majority of perpetrators are males, although women are perpetrators too
  • Both male & female perpetrators exhibit signs of narcissism, sociopathy
  • Perpetrators do not discriminate, they target the most vulnerable male or female
  • Perpetrators are targeting males because male dominated career, opportunist
  • Male on male crime tends to be more violent, victim may have been threatened
  • The stereotype that perpetrators are always male is false, female perpetrators tend to be more sociopathic, manufacture evidence, create narrative, and elicit the help of others to commit the crimes usually because of financial motive
  • Financial benefits, medical benefits, & life insurance make solders vulnerable, targeted by sociopaths for financial gain, mostly males in Army targeted
  • Domestic abuse perpetrated by female spouses minimized, false accusations common
  • Fear of losing security of steady paycheck if anyone reports abuse to command
  • Red flags missed because the abused do not want to report, violence escalates to a point of no return (careers ended, someone gets hurt or dies)
  • Males fear reporting to command, perpetrators may be higher ranking, exploitation
  • Commanders are single investigators, may not realize being manipulated by sociopath who is out to get revenge because the other party rejected them
  • Servicemen’s Group Life Insurance is a common motive for murder, mostly males targeted, soldiers motivated to get married quickly for financial benefits
  • Males think they can’t become a victim of crime, anyone can whether violent criminal or manipulative spouse exploiting soldier financially, target when alone
  • If abusive spouse lives on federal military base, no one has jurisdiction over them, can’t court martial or NJP, soldier held responsible for behavior of family
  • Where can soldiers turn to for help to safely end a marriage? Are they provided with an attorney? Do they have to pay out of pocket? Command’s involvement?
  • Who is tracking behaviors/red flags of both perpetrators & those with PTSD?
  • What services are offered to assist a soldier with PTSD? Is it a career ender?
  • Is toxic leadership responsible for soldiers choosing suicide? Betrayal?
  • How do Commander’s hold military spouse accountable for domestic abuse?
  • How do Commander’s hold soldier accountable for escalating domestic abuse?
  • Is it possible that male soldiers do not report because don’t want to be seen as weak?

Military Justice Improvement Act Falls Short of Votes & Substance

xl_deptofdefenselogoThe MJIA fell short of the votes it needed to pass in Congress. But it’s really nothing to get upset about because the bill falls short of substance.

The MJIA had good intentions. It gave the victim a different place to report other then an immediate supervisor or the Commander. It would have allowed victims to report to a military prosecutor instead. The bill also included all violent crimes, ie sexual assault, domestic violence, and murder.

But in reality, how is that going to work? There aren’t enough military prosecutors to report to. There was one, maybe two in the State of Maine JAG office and they were located hours if not days away from some of the places we trained and deployed.

His family immediately suspected his wife, Claudia, but she boarded a flight to her native Brazil hours after her husband’s death. U.S. investigators charged Claudia with murder, but more than 10 years later, the Hoerig family is still seeking justice. Erin Moriarty, who traveled to Brazil to track down Claudia, joins “CBS This Morning” to preview her “48 Hours” report.
