(oopss to long for one post)

As I mentioned earlier Fiebert and Tucci presented a study in which seventy percent of one hundred and eighty-two male college students they studied had experienced sexual coercion from a woman (1998). Fiebert and Tucci state that in Muehlendard and Cook’s 1988 study sixty-two point seven percent out of their five hundred and seven male college student population has experienced unwanted sexual intercourse (1988).

Many of the men in Fiebert and Tucci reported that “(m)ild forms of sexual coercion were reported by subject 228 times, moderate forms of coercion were reported 122 times, and severe forms of coercion were reported 13 times(….) In addition, 36 men (20%) indicated that they felt sexually taken advantage by their coercive female partners” (1998). They go on to report that more the twenty percent indicated that a woman had pressured them into having “oral, anal, or genital sex as well as engage in sex without using a condom” (1998).

Fiebert and Tucci also mention that younger men had “a greater potential to be victims of sexual coercion,” (1998) and go on to explain that this maybe because older males are likely to be married or have other forms of long term relationship (1998).

These two articles show the gap in how we as a society perceive not only rape, but male rape, it almost seems as if our society is more at easy with male on male rape, because it permits them to not step out of their schisms of males being the rapist, and that gay men enjoy violent rough sex: a “man was subjected to homophobic comments during the assault. The attackers told him that: I was a filthy queer and I deserved all I got and he knew I was secretly enjoying it. To each other they shout out encouragement and egged each other to do more brutal things to me” (Archer, Davies, Walker 2005).

I feel that the response of many of the women in Bailey’s study disturbing, their “ha ha it finally happened to a guy”, and their complicity about the woman’s role in the rape to me is no different then the complicity and blaming the victim that some men do when a woman is raped. If feminism is truly about the equality of the sexes then rape to a male or a female and done by a male or a female must be confronted with the same anger and legal response. If feminism does not do this they will become the society that they are wishing to change.

I wholeheartedly agree.. if there is no consent, it is rape.. and should be treated the same no matter what gender either person was.

I'm interested to know why or for what reason it is that you began your study on female to male rape.
I understand that this is a private post but feel free to add to your blog if you see fit.
I myself worry about this,and have come close to being a victim of female to male rape - strange wouldn't you say? I've giving the subject much thought and have come to no conclusion; other than to be prepared for the sort. Now that I am of legal drinking age and might, from time to time, stumble onto illegal drugs, wonder just exactly what my consequences might be. Is it something that you might feel as a victim to circumstance or has this certain something left you to feel a victim, because,let me tell you; I've giving thought to any of a large man that might try to back her on any of her perverse sick thoughts. But,on the lesser, I've discovered that if she performs oral sex on her victim she might be successfull-doesent that make you cringe?
