Why are Islamists a special concern? Women can be and have been brutalized during wartime by non-Islamists as well (for example the Serbs, Japanese, even some Americans, etc.) I’m quite sure male soldiers have also been raped by other men as a way to humiliate & debase them, though it probably doesn’t get talked about or reported very often.

The Islamists aren’t an exclusive concern, but their open and extreme misogyny, coupled with the fact that they are the enemy whom we are currently fighting makes them the foe the generals most likely see in their mind’s eyes abusing captured women.
