Why is that do you think? Social stigma attached to anything "gay", because boys are taught to keep everything "inside" or what?
Parents need to teach their boys about the dangers of sexual assault, the same as they teach their girls. It can happen to them too.
They still have "men don't cry", intense guilt from "allowing" it to happen. It appears to be a combination of factors from how they were trained to fear being called "gay", lack of control and absolutely NOT wanting to stand trial.
MOST victims do NOT tell, so, perps get to abuse multiple victms over the years. Society STILL sees female rape differently from male rape. Men din't report CDV, rape, or molestation and there were no programs or interventions until last 5 years. There STILL is NOT multiple programs for males victims of CDV, rape and molestation. No "Brother care shelters" or treatment programs specific for male victims of molestation or rape. CDV, rape and molestation have no gender, ethnic, economic or age bias!

<quoted text> if you can recall there was a cop killer that was living in columbia that killed two cops in i believe alabama. He was caught almost 50 years later. So if one of the cops were kinfolks would you want him to go unpunished because it happened a long time ago. Think before you type.
There is no statute of limitations on murder, that's why it can be prosecuted years later. Also, there is physical evidence, namely a body in a lot of cases. Now, as far as the other poster's comment goes, I too wonder at how they are able to convict people of molestation 20-40 years down the line. Doesn't it amount to one person's word against another's? There can be no "physical evidence" from that long ago. No semen, or torn genitals etc. So, unless the accused confesses, how do they convict them? I'm asking because I don't know and I'm curious, not because I'm trying to be offensive, so please don't take it that way.

Hey cin, Thanks for responding. So, I guess the solution is more community awareness and parents teaching their boys what? They aren't expected to be in control all the time, that it's not their fault if they are victimized? Everytime someone talks about teaching, or does teach a boy these things there seems to be a backlash that we are turning our boys into "sissies" and "feminizing" them. Is that the dogma that we have to overcome? Or is there a middle ground? Can you teach a boy these things without in some way, feminizing him at least to a degree? I'm not saying it's a bad thing, or a good thing. I think it's a tough call to make, parenting is never a cut and dried thing because you cannot know how well you did until they are grown. There's always going to be someone out there who will say, "well, I would have done it differently" - so I guess it's a parents prerogative what they teach their kids, too bad they don't come with an instruction manual - "How to raise a well adjusted kid."

Wow, where are all the racist white people that are usually on this board. True, african americans are in the news all the time doing something stupid... however, at least we aren't screwing the little boys and girls... teachers sleeping with students....

PITTSBURGH -- A 10-month-old baby died after being raped and beaten by her mother's boyfriend while the mother was at work, police said.

Da'Niyah Marie Jackson died at Children Hospital on Saturday afternoon, two days after the alleged assault. The Allegheny County medical examiner's office Sunday ruled her death a homicide, saying she died from multisystem organ failure precipitated by her injuries and the assault.

Now, Clinton Smith, 30, the mother's live-in boyfriend, is facing homicide charges after previously being charged with rape and other offenses.

The mother told police she left the baby with Smith on Thursday morning when she went to her waitressing job. The mother found the baby unresponsive when she returned home at about 9:30 p.m. and called paramedics. The baby had severe bruises on her face, arms and legs, as well as a bite mark on her chest, police said. Doctors told police she had also been sexually assaulted.

Smith, who was also caring for his 2-year-old son, told police he did not know how the baby was injured, authorities said. A preliminary hearing in the case was scheduled for Wednesday.

Hey to u "Q" but the rubber hits the road with everyone teaching children and adults that NOONE should be treated in this manner by ANYONE for ANY reason. I stil hear people refusing to give their daughters the shot to prevent cervical cancer... That is CRAZY and NOT in the child's best interest. How would telling a male about rape/molestation be the cause of "female behaviors" in him? His goes out and hers goes in, but that is about the only difference until you get to the chemical differences with hormones, DNA or such. The rest is nuture not nature. A male gettin some is seen as "atta boy" while a female gettin some is seen as "ho"... society has to change the rules to fit the reality! This is not a new behavior and remember that Cain killed Abel was the first documented CDV! Communication and consistency is the KEY to parenting.

I agree that sex offenders should be put in jail and serve time but really- shouldn't there be a Statute of Limitations on this- if you were sexually abused in the 1970's- shouldn't you have come forward then and not 20-30 years later! Don't you feel guilty? The person that sexually abused you could have done it to many others since then. You could have stopped it a long time ago! I have heard in some of the cases they are charged with what the laws were then- I bet if you look they were not near as strict as they are now! My point in all of this is- WHY DID YOU WAIT SO LONG TO COME FORWARD?
Maybe if you had been assaulted you would understand. It is embarrassing, humiliating, degrading, shameful and there are feelings of guilt and taking on the blame yourself. The laws have been in effect for a long time and are just now being changed. NO, THERE SHOULD NOT BE A CHANGE IN THE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS! A VICTIM SHOULD BE ABLE TO GO BACK AND NAME HIS/HER PERPETRATOR AT ANY TIME AND NO THEY DO NOT OFFEND ONCE, THEY ARE REPEAT OFFENDERS. IT IS A VERY DIFFICULT THING TO TALK ABOUT BECAUSE YOU BLAME YOURSELF FOR SO LONG. This is SEXUAL ASSAULT AWARENESS MONTH. I hope you are a little more aware of what a victim goes through. All the perpetrator wants is for you to keep silent. When you finally get the system to hear you only 33% of perpetrators are convicted, leaving the other 67% walking our streets. Now you are also aware why there are still so many assaults. By the way, this is also Child Abuse Awareness Month and they also suffer from being sexually assaulted as well as being abused domestically.
