Male officers across Canada in the program have been wrongly accused of sexual assault by Cadets, mostly young, female cadets looking for attention. It happens at least a 3-4 times a year across Canada. Female officers have never faced the same fear of being wrongly accused, so they simply dont worry about it.
Hold on here, I want a little perspective. Because your anecdote about how you feel may or may not lead to a proper understanding of the situation. It's possible your reasoning is dead on. But it might also be a little fallacious, and so I'd like some more information.
You are claiming that 3-4 times a year male officers are wrongly accused of sexual assault . So how often are they correctly accused of sexual assault? Once every fear years? 10 times a year? 100 times a year? How many officers are there in the air cadets? 10? 100? 1000? 10 000? Because these numbers make a big difference. Especially the ratio of false to real accusations, and how you come to that determination.
I mean, unless there is a way you know that 3-4 are false out of (3? 4? 10? 100 accusations?) it seems like there is some fallacious thinking (availability bias, et cetera). This doesn't mean you are wrong, even if I'm right in pointing out it seems fallacious. But I might be wrong and you might have more solid numbers that you haven't posted yet.
(Also, it just occurred to me that sometimes people don't think what they are doing is sexual harassment. For example, some guys will touch women. A lot. I've been called very touchy by women. But I also go out of my way to not touch women who I don't think I know will react will. Because some people find it uncomfortable and they shouldn't have to put up with unwanted touching, even if YOU think it's unobtrusive. Sometimes men don't touch at all but will noticeably comment on the looks of fellow co-workers, even directly to them. Even without touching this can be sexual harassment depending on how it's done.
In fact, like with everything
else, you need to treat other people they way they want to be treated. Kinda a reverse golden rule. The Elur Nedlog, if you will.
