I agree on all that. But what you wrote bears zero resemblance to the first commenter’s completely ignorant, insulting, abusive, and moronic statements. The overwhelming majority of rapes go unreported to this day, and even if reported, unprosecuted. Men’s “rights” advocates are sorely misguided by seeking to portray false and misleading information. And men in prison are raped by whom? It is almost universally males raping other males in prison not females seeking to sexually molest males in a vulnerable position.

Is sexual exploitation of another person right? Of course not, no matter who perpetrates it.

The rape I and many other female victims suffered was an act of physical aggression and I believed that the perpetrator was going to kill me. The police also believed the perp could have killed me, and did kill others. They believed he could have been responsible for some unsolved murders of unidentified females found in the local desert.

He was never prosecuted. He was in a privileged position and from a wealthy family. When accusations grew too numerous he was sent to another country for 2 years. He resumed his crimes upon his return and his rampage only stopped when he died in a single-car accident on a nearby mountain road. Some believe a woman’s brother or father saw to it that he was finally stopped by that means. No one knows for sure.

I think a man who is raped or sexually exploited by any other person deserves justice. We are a long way from that in our society. M oronic, idiotic, insulting and tone deaf comments from foolish “mens rights advocates” are unacceptable. That’s what I was responding to.

I never received justice and there are tens of thousands of female victims and missing people who will never be found. Pedantic and offensive “men’s rights” arguments have nothing to do with that. They are simply more insult to injuries already done and tolerated in our very sick society.
