463. Australian Navy Cadets

A ritual mentioned as a rite of passage has brought the Australian Navy Cadets in the focus of the media. Several cadets mentions being forced to engage in sexual acts with older cadets as a “rite of passage”.

It seems that it was an old traditions which have continued until present day. Still active cadets were pressured not to speak about the rituals or risk being thrown out of the organization. One cadet took her own life after being victim of this pressure.

It cannot be fun to be there as a teenager.
