That is most definitely true! It's time we stop deciding who is a victim based on the victim and based on laws that say violating a person is rape always.

Gender roles have broken down somewhat in forty years but many have yet to learn women are not property to be used at will. Men must feel an extra shame in that they are forced to feel they may be not only weak but homosexual.

rape is rape weather it is anal, vaginal or oral , ppl this has never happened to never fully understand.it happened to me years ago, the hell I went through during exam etc, they sent 2 male officers cute huh, these two acted like it was a joke, it effected me so much, their demeanor and way they acted , we loose all dignity and self respect during these exams , my heart goes out to you all, these rapists one day will stand before god and be accountable, when so many women are willing, my question is why.

Rape is a crime, no matter the gender, it is a sin. It is not only women being raped, from men or women. It is also men being raped from women and men. The majority is women being raped by men. It is a hideous crime, that can destroy a person who is raped. It is body theft. Many of the suicide victims are here to find, they can not live with the shame of being raped, they feel degraded and worthless. Depresssions set in and in many cases the raped person turns shy, they do not want to...

It is a hideous crime, that can destroy a person who is raped. It is body theft. Many of the suicide victims are here to find, they can not live with the shame of being raped, they feel degraded and worthless. Depresssions set in and in many cases the raped person turns shy, they do not want to associate with others, they go through a crises, only the raped know. It is a chamber for many only escape.
When a child is raped, that is one of perverseness only equal. That is the stealing of a life just beginning. When raped by a father or even mother, these parents steal the child its future. The child or young woman, adult woman is not always to separate, that is raped, they feel unloved, they feel dirty, they are not good enough to be part of society, they feel watched, lured at. then the distrust even the authorities are distrusted, they remain alone, they search for barriers to hide behind. The female or the male psyche is severely damaged and this results in many other things, the subject is too large for here.
A rapist needs to be sentenced to prison for life, I am for that, even when the victim over lives. It is one of the most abominable, appalling, awful, bestial, detestable, disgusting, dreadful, crimes on this planet and is equal to murder. You are stealing the life of a person.

Oh no, not again. In this day and age, how can this still be happening? I don't care who the authority figure is, rape is when oneperson forces another to have sex against his/her will. As a victim of rape, I can personally attest to the trauma of such an experience. Good for you, Lydia, fight back! You are only being re-traumatized if you allow your abuser to get away with this. Stand strong - emotional resilience is developed through adversity. You go, girlfriend!

I can't believe how upsetting the rape was but to have to go through all the trial - only to find out there's another case to determine whether you were raped? Gosh, isn't that enough already to have to go through? I've got to admire you in pushing for this to be resolved so others done have this long-winded emotional situation later - and that's AFTER you went all the way through THAT avoidable additional stressful whole 5 miles.... all because this police office had some behaviour...

God bless you for sharing so that it may change for others. God bless youl Keep in touch as this may hopefully be the last he gets the change to do this again.
