Is rape a womens problem?


What happens when the perpetrator is female and the victim is male? Here’s an interesting article on the subject.

It’s expected that a woman’s consent will be sought, while a man’s right to consent or deny is ignored. Men are seekers of consent, and women are gatekeepers. The gatekeeper-to-consent concept is so ingrained that it is often not a conscious thought. As a result, the social response to male rape victims is hampered by the idea that it’s abnormal for a heterosexual man to not automatically consent to any sexual contact from a woman.

How does society handle the situation of an adult female having sex with an underage male? What happens when a male is tied down and raped anally with a foreign object? How does this contrast with what should happen?
