Women can’t rape – guest post by @RobbieHalls w/ sources via @HoneyBadgerBite

Sexual assault upon men seems to be left out of the narrative I see every day from outspoken feminists who insist that there is a rape culture in US/UK when no definition of such a culture applies to most civilised western societies.

Rape of men by women isn’t something that can be legally prosecuted under UK law by legal definition despite it being unwanted penetration, it falls under sexual assault law. This detracts from the weight of the act indirectly by diminishing the social impact of statistics and reporting.

This needs to change.

38% of the victims of rape were men in the 2012 National Crime Victim Survey. (This study requires men to classify their victimization as rape and as a crime, both requirements lead to a reduction of admitted male victims relative to other survey instruments so this number is only a lower bound on the number of male victims of rape.)

Also recent results on sexual exploitation in correctional facility finds extremely high rates of female on male abuse.

“Approximately 95% of all youth reporting staff sexual misconduct said they had been victimized by female staff. In 2008, 42% of staff in state juvenile facilities were female.”
