#MENTOO

 Rape molestation and assault
A woman comes in our mind
Those rapist who aren’t yet caught
Brings anger , but though we are blind.
In this world of meetoo movement,
We forgot those men ,
Who also need inducement,
Who died by hanging on fan.
Sexual exploitation or assault,
Can also happen with them.
But the woman in fault,
Reverse the obligation towards them.
Lets fight for the man,
Who are judged for the gender.
Let’s make them feel they can,
Speak out ! And make thier perpetrators surrender.

Sexual assault can happen to anyone, no matter your age, sexual orientation, or gender identity. SO , Rape. The word reminds us of harrowing crimes against women like the Nirbhaya gang-rape, unprecedented protests held by citizens across the country, and national debates involving various stakeholders including lawmakers and activists.
However, the word is associated with a basic assumption: a man unleashes brutal sexual violence on a woman. In our national debate about rape, rape on males is rarely, if ever, addressed.
ACTUAL PROBLEM:
1. “Men can’t get raped”
WHO SAID IT, WE ALL DO. BECAUSE MALE ARE STRONG AND PROTECT THEMSELVES , WHEREAS WOMENS ARE DICTATED AS WEAK , FRAGILE , ETC.Male survivors go through similar psychological torture as female victims, but because of the lack of supporting institutions and social acceptance, they are compelled to remain silent.
2. Mindset
If raped, a man is seen as unable to protect himself and at times labelled as ‘unmanly’.Worse still, survivors are dismissed because it is believed that they surely “must have enjoyed it”, a reasoning stemming from the thinking that men are ever-ready sexual beings, and thus the concept of ‘consent’ is often ignored in the context of men.
3. Absence of a strong legal framework
Patriarchal thinking is also reflected in our legal system. Section 375 of the Indian Penal Code does not include males as rape victims. The only route for a male victim to find justice is through Section 377, India’s anti-sodomy law, if he is assaulted by a male attacker. Sodomy, however, is not considered actual rape. Importantly, there is no distinction between consensual and non-consensual sexual acts between two male adults. If a female is the perpetrator, there is no mechanism for finding justice.
HOPE YOU PEOPLE AGREE WITH ME…..

hi Insiya…first of all, thanks aplenty for liking my recent post. Secondly, I do indeed agree with your stance on the topic of rape. Because many men have sexually assaulted women in the past, there is a general mindset that men do not get raped even though there are cases where it has happened. But because we live in a society that does not recognize it, and looks down on male victims who have been raped as weak, I’m afraid that many will go on living in ignorance as to the psychological damage that is inflicted not only on female victims but males as well.
