UpFront Disclosure: This thread made my pathos
for more than one reason and nearly all of them were valid logos! There was the occasional
followed by some ! I am a male and I AM/WAS [your pick] a male gang rape "victim" [oh how I loathe that word
as it makes me want
to scream and
but I gotta call a spade a spade and so 100% transparency is vital and I provide it regardless of how much it galls my
at whoever is responsible for this being pulled from the ATS side of the website.
I'll just :bnghd: instead of them as
I don't want to get
, although there is a PLETHORA of BTS emoticons that I feel that would be TOTALLY appropriate to use!
Now on topic.....I am going to have to clarify some points OK!
RE: "Studies on perpetrators of male-on-male rape found that they tended to identify as heterosexual, were 26 years old on average, and were all
involved in consensual sexual relationships with others at the time."
RE: "It is important to know, however, that most men who rape other men identify as heterosexual and are involved in consensual sexual relationships
with women at the time they rape.
It is not a need for sex with other men that drives them to rape. For them, rape is an act of violence and control, not of sexual gratification."
"However, at an appropriate time, inform him that most men who rape men self-identify as heterosexual and rape to control, humiliate, and degrade
their victims, not for sexual pleasure."
NOPE! And here is why!.....
Basically its BOTH rape [power trip] and a case of situational homosexuality both of which are BOTH deeply couched in PHYSICAL SEXUAL GRATIFICATION
i.e. orgasm for either the perpetrator and/or the victim regardles of either's SEXUAL DESIRES or orientations! The orgasm is a display of domination
and so is forcing someone to unwillingly orgasm!
And with regards to prisons and male rape and the above; here is evidence from
Correctional Officers Perceptions on Homosexuality, Rape
and Prostitution in Male Prisons. [PDF at justdetention.org]
"The concept of sexual deprivation became a key factor in resolving this apparent paradox. Most authors noted that inmates basically had two options
in prison,celibacy or situational homosexuality".
"The earliest discussions of male rape in prison are found in the correctional literature dealing with homosexuality. These works (Buffum, 1972;
Clemmer, 1958; Fishman, 1951; Kirkham, 1971; Sagarin, 1976; Sykes,1958) focus on creating topologies of homosexuals. Most of this body of research,
like other research on sexuality during this era, employed an essentialist theoretical approach. According to this perspective, sexual orientation is
a static and permanent characteristic, and people can be categorized into two dichotomous groups—heterosexual or homosexual (see Eigenberg, 1992).
This approach does not accommodate bisexuality, nor does it recognize the possibility of a changing sexual orientation. As a result, most of the early
literature on prison sexuality concentrated on discriminating between “true” and “situational” homosexuals"..... Situational or not they are
And to prove my point....
A situational HETEROSEXUAL man rapes a true HETEROSEXUAL man (definately an ACT of situational HOMOSEXUALITY and fornication but not nessissarily from
motive driven by a desire of lifelong HOMOSEXUALITY on the part of the rapist or victim) and claims he is NOT a HOMOSEXUAL but that his victim is a
HOMOSEXUAL and that the ACT overall was Overtly HETEROSEXUAL in nature...
A situational LAW ABIDING man SEXUALLY ASSAULTS a true LAW ABIDING man (definately an ACT of situational CRIMINALITY and CRIME but not nessissarily
from motive driven by a desire of lifelong enjoyment of CRIMINAL ACTS on the part of the rapist or victim) and claims he is NOT a CRIMINAL but that
his victim is a CRIMINAL and that the ACT overall was Overtly LEGAL in nature...
The OP's evidence source didn't seem to see that the situational homosexual rapists are trying to pull the wool over their and our eyes (the OP's
evidence source was obviously fleeced) and I find it disgusting as it demeans the victims even more and lessens us all especially when people go ahead
and endorse their(the rapists) FUBAR rational.
Personal Disclosure: I certainly don't care whether its situational or not or whether anybody enjoys themselves or not or whether they consider
themselves homosexual or not but let us call a spade a spade and male rapists as situational homosexuals OK!
