    Only 46% of rapes are reported: source

    That means, for the 26000 rapes that were reported, there were approximately 56522 that weren't.  My estimation (what you call "making stuff up") was below that figure.

      3374 were REPORTED.  THe 26K number is for the equivalent of putting stuff in a suggestion box.  Those 26,000 complaints range from inappropriate jokes to sexual assault.  If you want to double 3374 and say it is probable there were over 6000 rapes in the military last year you will get no argument from me.

        You being a dick doesn't change that.
