Western Women Rights and the Lies (either outright or by omission) Told; Continued...
Outside of the report cited in the last post, there is also a site called The Equal Justice Foundation, that offers a much more broad and unbiased
reporting regarding domestic violence, and offers six chapters before addressing the domestic violence that is perpetuated on men. Those six chapters
Chapter 1 — The Human Problem Of Domestic Violence
Chapter 2 — Domestic Violence And The Rule Of Law
Chapter 3 — The Impact Of Domestic Violence Laws On National Security
Chapter 4 — Psychological Studies Of Domestic Violence
Chapter 5 — Shelters For Battered Women
Chapter 6 — The Face Of Battering
begins by stating:
The following stories are news stories and first-person accounts. They have been gathered from many sources in a nearly random fashion.
And then provides a list of state by state collection of these news stories and first person accounts.
Moving on to:
Rape of Men:
In terms of men who are raped, the vast majority of sites offered are about the more sensationalistic prison rapes, but they offers some revealing
stories and figures nonetheless. There is the
Human Rights Watch Report of 2001
, there is the Wikipedia article called
Rape by Gender
, that offers this:
Several studies argue that male-male prisoner rape might be the most common and least-reported form of rape, with some studies suggesting such rapes
are substantially more common in both per-capita and raw-number totals than male-female rapes in the general population.
Concluding that section of that article, subtitled Rape of males by males; with this offering:
Male on male rape has historically been shrouded in secrecy due to the stigma men associate with being raped by other men. According to psychologist
Dr Sarah Crome fewer than one in ten male-male rapes are reported. As a group, male rape victims reported a lack of services and support, and legal
systems are often ill equipped to deal with this type of crime.
Seemingly not even vaguely interested in reporting, offering statistics or discussing male on male rape outside of prisons. That article does,
however, provide a section subtitled; Rape of males by females, that offers this:
Contrary to popular opinion, Women also can commit an act of rape with force or deception to make a man engage in a non-consensual penetrative sexual
act although partly in thanks to double standards, it is often unreported. According to "Court TV"'s "Crime Library", women
commit about 2% of all sexual offenses and their abuse often involves their own child or children, but this statistic doesn't mention how many, if
any, of these cases of abuse were rape.
Take note how the Wikipedia editors have noted that a citation is needed to support this claim. That citation will likely still be needed next year,
the following year, and the year after that, as no one really wants to take seriously the idea that women can rape men. That section continues with
Much like female erectile response and contrary to popular opinion, Male erectile response is involuntary. Rape of a man by a woman is thus
However, male victims of sexual abuse by females often face social, political, and legal double standards. Though studies show otherwise,
female abusers are usually seen as less culpable than male abusers/rapists by the courts due to these misconceptions. Since rape by females is much
less well known than male-female abuse, male victims of female abusers often find little support from rape crisis centers and even the authorities.
While gender neutral laws have combated the older perception that rape never occurs to men, while other laws have eliminated the term
altogether, the doubles standards still remain. Due to these reasons, it is likely being substantially under-reported, with the probable cause
being the double standard.
At least citations were found for this. There is another Wikipedia article titled; Prison rape, that references the Human Rights Watch Report listed
above, and states:
In 2001 Human Rights Watch estimated that at least 140,000 inmates in the US had been raped while incarcerated, and there is a significant
variation in the rates of prison rape by race. Stop Prisoner Rape, Inc. statistics indicate that there are more men raped in U.S. prisons than
non-incarcerated women similarly assaulted. They estimate that young men are five times more likely to be attacked; and that the prison rape victims
are ten times more likely to contract a deadly disease. In contrast to these high figures, a metaanalysis published in 2004 found a prevalence rate of
1.91% with a 95% confidence interval between 1.37–2.46%. Applying that 1.91% figure to the nearly 2.3 million inmates currently incarcerated in
prisons and jails in the United States suggests that raped US inmates number 43,800.
And later states:
According to the study conducted by the United States Department of Justice for the year 2006, there were 2,205 allegations of inmate-on-inmate
nonconsensual sexual acts reported, total, in the U.S. prison system. 262 of the allegations were substantiated.
As prison rape of male on males seems to be well worth reporting and titular in its nature, there are other sites such as
, and while that site was found on a Google page that asked; "how many men
are raped in the u.s. each year, the first link provided offers an article titled American Rape
which only offers up statistics of women that have been raped by men. The next link provided on a Google page asking how many men
are raped in the U.S. offers an article by Salon.com titled; The Private War of
, yet another article about women being raped by men, and the third link provided by that Google page is the Prison Rape article
above by Wikipedia, and there are no articles, reports, or statistics offered on women raping men.
If I had to guess, my guess is that there is a huge gap in numbers between men raping women, and women raping men, and indeed, it is hard to imagine a
woman having to actually rape a man in order to get sex, but it does happen and when it does it is no less a crime than when men do it to women. It
is just not treated that way. I am not offering this to advocate some sort of special rights for men who have been raped by women, or even other men,
nor am I advocating special rights for men who have been violently abused by women, or even men, and as far as robberies go, it should go without
saying that men are robbed too, and it is ludicrous at this point to spend hours attempting to find statistics that would show how many women rob men,
and even more ludicrous to suggest they don't.
All men are not pigs, and all women are not little angels. Humanity is a violent species that not only causes great harm to each other, but to
virtually every species on the planet. Humans abuse their pets, they club baby seals, they abuse baby calf's in order to eat veal, and on and on and
on. All people have Inalienable Rights and those Rights should be respected and honored by all. All People are equal under the law, and no one needs
special rights in order to expect this equal protection. Yet, there are agenda driven factions that will actively engage in the politics of
victimology so they can further their agenda of the politics of division, and all of it is fear based, and certainly not predicated on love.
Either we will learn to love each other as a species, or we will keep killing, raping, thieving, and beating the crap out of each other, and other
species, until we can learn to heal this fear and learn to love. The politics of division, demanding that one group be demonized and another held up
as special victims separate from those who are just simply victims, will not bring us any closer to handling our fear, and learning to love each
other. The truth of the matter is that anyone who has had their Inalienable Rights trampled upon is a victim and deserves the same respect as all
others in that regard, and it matters not what gender, race, religion, sexual preference, or creed, if their Rights have been abrogated or derogated,
there is a clear and present absence of Justice.
