Today, someone told me that only men who are weak are raped. and that a 'real man' could fight of a rapist.




i dont understand how any one can believe that.

rape is a horrific and violent crime. being a victim, whether male or female, does not make you weak.



my husband was a victim of rape.


he was 18 at the time. i was 17 and 6 months pregnant with our daughter. we had been married for 2 months.


he was walking home from work when he was attacked and raped.

it was 4 men and a woman.

he was beaten, raped and stabbed.

the woman cut his penis.


he had a total of 6 stab wounds. two black eyes. a concussion (sp?), a gash on his head, a broken arm and 3 teeth knocked out.


the men all recieved jail time. the woman recieved nothing. she claimed her boyfriend was the group leader, was abusive and forced her.


my husband still suffers from violent nightmares. hes alwayr had nighmares, but after that, they got worse, alot worse.

its been 3 years.



i just dont understand how anyone can think that being a victim of rape makes you weak, or less of a man.


anyone can be a victim.

it doesnt matter how weak or strong you are.

anyone can be caught off guard.

anyone can be attacked or over powered.

anyone.

I agree. Anyone can be a victim. Sometimes they are overpowered, sometimes drugged, and sometimes psychologically coerced.

Well according to some women here it just makes him weak and not a 'real man'.

My husband was passed out drunk and was raped.  It happens to men all the time but most do not report it because of people saying they are weak and less of a man.  Sad really....

That is terrible. And anyone can be a victim. Strength and gender have nothing to do with it. How sad for your family.
