Q: Can guys be raped, too?

Senga 4 mins ago

Yes. Often, people hear the words “rape” or “sexual assault” and automatically figure the victim is female. This isn’t always true.

Males can be raped. Females, like male can rape people. Regardless of how rape is defined legally, being forced to do something sexually that you did not agree to is always wrong and can have lasting effects, regardless of your sex or the sex of the person who raped you.
A guy can be penetrated by a penis or object, anally, for example. And despite what some people think, a guy can also be forced to have vaginal intercourse. Just because a guy has an erection doesn’t necessarily mean that he wants sex. An erection is simply a response to stimulation a normal, involuntary reaction that the body has and it sometimes can happen out of fear, shock or for no clear reason at all.

It’s hard for anyone to report rape or sexual assault. A guy might feel like he’s not a “real man” if he was raped, or he may feel like no one would believe him because he’s been taught that guys should always want and have sex if the situation arises.

    As per section section 123 of the Penal Code, This is the definition of rape.

    Any person who has unlawful carnal knowledge of a woman or girl, without her consent, or with her consent, if the consent is obtained by force or by means of threats or intimidation of any kind or by fear of bodily harm, or by means of false representations as to the nature of the act, or in the case of a married woman, by personating her husband, commits the felony .
    I would like to believe that the male person can be raped but the law will never term it as rape but rather indecent assault but still the law will not help as even as per the law section 138 of the Penal Code Act,it also only advocates forthe female species.

    128. Indecent assaults, etc.
    (1)Any person who unlawfully and indecently assaults any woman or girl commits a felony and is liable to imprisonment for fourteen years, with or without corporal punishment.
    (2)It shall be no defence to a charge for an indecent assault on a girl under the age of eighteen years to prove that she consented to the act of indecency.
    (3)Any person who, intending to insult the modesty of any woman or girl, utters any word, makes any sound or gesture or exhibits any object, intending that such word or sound shall be heard, or that such gesture or object shall be seen by such woman or girl, or intrudes upon the privacy of such woman or girl, commits a misdemeanour and is liable to imprisonment for one year.
    So the law is the first mischief we have as it concerns males being sexually abused. Thou in my own understanding this is so true.
