Abstract or Summary
  • Sexual assault in the military is prevalent, underestimated, and sadly overlooked. This is largely due to the inherent patriarchy and hegemonic masculine ideologies that set rigid power boundaries in the military. The roles of powerful and powerless are indoctrinated into Servicemembers from the first moment of training, and are reified throughout one's military career. Internal rhetoric is a form of discourse which, like all discourse, aids in constructing meaning. Military training and influences internal rhetoric. Further, military sexual assault (MSA) directly and negatively impacts a victim’s internal discourse in a way that in turn shifts his/her self and world-views. In order to present a holistic and truly interdisciplinary research result, this thesis will first outline the nature of hegemonic masculine military ideology, its role in MSA, and its impact on female Servicemembers from a critical intercultural communication lens; and then to methodically explore the meaning, motive, and character of a victim's internal rhetoric using Kenneth Burke's cluster-agon rhetorical analysis method on the private autoethnography of a survivor of military-on-military rape victimization. The objective of this research is to contribute an interdisciplinary qualitative perspective on the intersectionality of the three primary areas of military hegemonic masculine ideology, military sexual assault, and internal rhetoric (or 'self-talk') of the victimized.
