A recent research study found that people who hold hierarchical belief systems are more likely to side with the man that with the woman in a non-stranger sexual assault case. That finding may help to explain a major criticism of the military justice system – that the people in this system do not process sexual assault cases properly. Common sense tells us that the military is full of hierarchical people, and if so, these people may have a cognitive bias that works in the man’s favor.
