Homosexuality in prison is kind of a misnomer. Yes,men engage(willingly or unwillingly) in homosexual acts…but it’s not so much that they’re homosexual,per say.
Yes,the absence of females and desire for sexual gratification are contributors…but its all about survival(reference “willingly or unwillingly”) and establishing dominance…a “prison hierarchy.”
In a prison environment…its all about control. Those who force themselves on other inmates are doing so to break them down to have psychological control over that person…being the “Alpha Male.” Establishing yourself as a “Alpha Male” could mean the difference in surviving or dying.
So in essence…prison brings out the basic feral instincts of men(mammals)…only a fraction of it being of a sexual nature. Think about why dogs of the same sex mount and hump each other.
Oh…and this all holds for female prison,too.
I understand what you are saying but humans arent dogs. I wasn’t excluding women from this subject but I do find it interesting that men in prison are way more likely to be sexually assaulted then women in prison. [/quote]
Well I painted an easy picture for you…can’t help what you see…or,in this case…what you don’t see. Tell me where I said humans are just like dogs. I said to think about WHY dogs behave like that.
I find it interesting that you have no grasp of why men in prison are way more likely to be sexually assaulted than women in prison. The reasons are too obvious for it to be that interesting.
