Male Rape Again.

 

Can I take a moment of your time? Can you just give me a moment? Can we take a minute – and talk about #MaleRape?

Can we talk about male rape and how prevalent it is? Can we talk about how no one seems to care? #MaleRape

Can we talk about how even guys think a man wailing about being raped is ridiculous? I’m talking about female on male rape. #MaleRape

Can we talk about how even the ‘victim’ can sometimes be in denial – because of the shame and stigma attached to it? #MaleRape

Can we talk about our attitude towards male rape? How some don’t think it exists? How others think it’s supposed to be fun? #MaleRape

Can we talk about how it’s almost as though until something happens to a woman, it never gets talked about? #MaleRape

Can we talk about how rape is popularly seen as something that happens only to women or how ‘women=victim’ and ‘men=perpetrator’? #MaleRape

Can we talk about how unprotected the male child is – because we take it for granted that he can look after himself? #MaleRape

Can we talk about how quite an alarming number of guys lose/lost their virginity to an older woman – housegirl, aunt, cousin etc? #MaleRape

Can we talk about how male rape is portrayed in the media – e.g Archie and Ms. Grundy in the Riverdale series? #MaleRape

Can we talk about how we never talk about this issue and that issue and those other issues whenever men are the victims? #MaleRape

 

Can we just talk?
