They define "assault" very clearly, and they make clear, that it includes rape, but does not solely mean rape. It's you who equals sexual assault and rape. If you can't make a difference between the whole and a part of the whole, then go to Reading of Scientific Texts 101.
(Or are you one of the people who also equal crime and murder and chastize people who got beaten up that nothing happened because they still are alive?)
Supposedly, the popularity of the cravat soared after a parade of a Croatian cavalry regiment in France in 1663. The Croatian cavalry was part of the Wallenstein troups which quite successfully fought in the Thirty Years war, and where the Croatian tie was part of the uniform, as you can see here. Ties were in fact part of many military coats, partly to protect the neck, partly to have a flexible way to close the shirt around the next. The croatian tie gained popularity especially because of the special tie knot.
But after the loss of the Hundred Years War and all their continental territory, the english kings started to look into Ireland, especially Henry VIII and Elizabeth I. They managed to revive english rule in Ireland, and they started to send settlers from England, Wales and Scotland to Ireland. Those were the New English, compared with the Old English who came 400 years earlier. Most North Irish Protestants are the descendants of those settlers.
(On the other hand, the tie was invented by croatian military riders as a replacement for buttons to close the shirt. To use a tie with a buttonned shirt is quite contrary to its original use case.)
