I think we are hypocritical towars that subject in a few ways…let me explain. No one would joke about a woman being raped, no matter how much cleavage her blouse showed, no matter how short her skirt and the fact she is wearing no panties. But on the other hand, we’ll laugh and make jokes about a guy who gets raped for sagging his pants in prison.
Consider this scenario: Sixteen year old girl that looks 28 uses a fake id to get into a bar on a Saturday night. She meets a 30 year old man. They go to his place, she really wants to have sex but doesnt want to lie about her age anymore. She tells him she’s 16 (lets assume she is the age of consent in this scenario) but she still really is hot for the 30 y/o man. The two have consensual, but protected sex, a good time is had by all and thats the end.
Scenario #2: Sixteen y/o boy goes to hang out with friends on a Friday evening. He is a good kid, never been in trouble with the law, does his homework, works a little after school job at the local barbershop sweeping up hair. While out one of his friends get an idea to steal a car to go joyriding and he just goes along for the ride. They are quickly caught by the police.
They are booked into the county jail where they spend the entire weekend. While in the county jail, the 16 y/o boy is raped by a 30 y/o inmate that just came home from doing time for armed robbery. This weekend in jail changes this boys life to the point where he is confused on whether he is gay or straight (he was happily straight before and even had a girlfriend) and constantly depressed.
The same people who would be shocked and apalled by my first scenario and say the girl was an innocent victim (of what, an imaginary crime?) and the man should be hung on a cross would then turn around and laugh at my 2nd scenario and say the boy shouldnt have dropped the soap and maybe even praise the rapist. Isnt that fucked up???
