View Full Version : Male Rape Common In Africa And Around The World

7th August 2011, 05:03 PM
While the brutal epidemic of women raped in the Congo has drawn much outrage in the media, lesser known incidents of men being raped by other men in the region and around the world are now coming to light, and apparently, in some places these occurrences are fairly common.

Arab news organization, Al-Jazeera, recently reported on the practice of “forced homosexuality.” According to their report, the practice is a tool for torture and humiliation around the world and therefore is rarely recognized as a crime.

Among the most disturbing statistics: 22 percent of men in eastern Congo report being victims of sexual violence, while 80 percent of Bosnian men claimed to be victims. Though there is no universal definition of male rape, Lara Stemple of UCLA Law’s Health and Human Rights Law Project describes forced masturbation, forced incest, forced fellatio and gang rape as being among the acts typically directed towards men many of which were reported to have taken place at Abu Ghraib and elsewhere.

i cant tell you how proud i am of al jezeera for reporting this issue cause i know male slaves/servants in arab households are regularly subjected to male rape

anyone remember the case of the murdered black arab man in a posh London hotel, well he was the lover/servant of his arab prince and had been for years(some reports say he was orphaned and adopted by the royal family at a young age)....he'd been suffering in plane sight with pictures and video showing that he was abused right there in England, Morroco and who knows what else he faced in Saudi Arabia.

also there is statistics out there about male rape of former soldiers being done by their male superiors during the Sierra Leone conflict
