Caught doing drugs?
Caught shoplifting? Well you can go to jail and add
`Caught HIV` to your resume.

Prison rape only sounds like fun.

The point that fascinated me was not so much the numbers but the link between responsibility and the victim. Most women have experienced the point that if we are raped it must be something we did ( or did not do)- but the idea that this occurs with male prisoners had not occured to me.....

I like how fast my opinion went from

"That can`t be right"
to
"Ohhhhhhh, Prison....."

If you`ve seen any of those "Scared Straight" programs and their ilk, you know that the main way they scare kids is with the threat of becoming some bigger guy`s "bitch." When you have punks who actually think going to jail is cool and gives them street "cred," then what else can you offer? Man-on-man rape seems to be an unspoken part of the punishment aspect of American prisons.

Gross. I was watching a show about this guy in prison and he was telling of his brief, but horrible experience in a Mexican prison. He was raped with scalding hot chili dogs in his ass for 2 weeks straight. Never go to prison in Mexico. Better to die first.

This is why I don`t commit crime, cause I don`t want to get raped.

This seems like an unlikely scenario. We`re talking all sorts of estimates, when in reality sexual assault in varying forms is one of those things where it`s difficult to make any definitives. It`s hard enough to get people to come forward about it. Whatever organization taking stabs in the dark at numbers doesn`t mean anything.

Plus, the estimates they`re using are based on actual cases of sexual assault, meaning they could happen multiple times per victim, so we could easily be talking about gay males as well, and I think many people are already aware that homosexual males tend to have some pretty dratin` huge targets on their chest in prison, considering even not-gay males can get assaulted.

Either way, this seems unlikely.

Yeah, beard, that has to be one of the dumbest things I`ve ever heard. Ok, that`s not true, I`ve heard a lot of dumb things in my life, but that`s a pretty darn dumb thing to say.

As holy said, we aren`t talking about dudes getting `raped` by women here. We`re talking about smaller dudes getting ass raped by big scary dudes in jail. Sometimes by multiple big scary dudes. Basically turned into a woman. Could you imagine what that would do to a dude`s sense of...err...manliness?

I don`t know what you`re into bro, but getting it up the ass by gigantic bear-looking inmates is not a thing I`m particularly into.

Oh, and even if we were talking about females, maybe you`re thinking of some attractive young crazy chick tying a dude down and having her way with him as being `rape`. I`m guessing most of the time dudes don`t get raped by anyone they`d ever willingly bone, especially since then chances are they wouldn`t need to force the dude to do it in the first place.

If you believe the idiot feminists` use of the term rape to include any sex where the victim is too drunk to meaningfully consent then more men are raped than women in the UK as well!

"can`t rape the willing.
ergo, no man is ever "raped"."

WHAT? Are you stupid or something?

I was always kind of amazed that suspected terrorists having embarrassing pictures taken in prison had Americans so up in arms when people jailed for non violent drug abuse are being routinely victimized, abused, and raped in our own country and nobody cares.

I`m pretty sure the thought of some huge guy beating the crap out of you and then forcibly sodomizing you on the concrete floor of your jail cell would leave you less than "willing". Who knows. Maybe you are into that kind of thing.

Maybe if we didn`t incarcerate so many people the statistics would fall in line with the rest of the civilized world. Corporations run our prisons and an empty prison is not profitable.

Clickly`s not working, it always takes a few minutes to "settle in" before it does...but if you are counting prison and catholic schools, then yes of course more men are raped than women.
