Historically, many rape laws excluded male victims from the protections women receive. The Model Penal Code, for example, defined “rape” so that only women could be victims. In England, funding for sex abuse victims is often denied for male victims regardless of how devastating.
The federal government spent hundreds of thousands of dollars studying rapes on college campuses while ignoring rapes in prisons where men are frequently subjected to prison rape or sexual abuse, and not just by other men. In fact, consensual sex between prisoners and guards is considered sexual abuse, especially when the prisoner is a minor, and female guards commit this form of abuse in significantly high numbers.
According to the US Department of Justice, “Approximately 95% of all youth reporting staff sexual misconduct said they had been victimized by female staff. In 2008, 42% of staff in state juvenile facilities were female.”
“Inside youth prisons, scores of female guards violated boys.” (As of May 5, 2011 this article appears to have been deleted from the Internet; however, we saved a copy but you can read it here: Sexual Assault rape stats list).

As reported by FORBES in the article “Is Feminism Getting In The Way of “Male Studies?” rapes of males frequently occur in the form of statutory rape, and not just by other males. A student survey in New Mexico found 43% of teacher sex abuse comes from female teachers but over 90% of prosecutions are of male teachers.
A recent study found 2 out of 5 South African boys say they were raped, “most often by adult women.”
A major study in Canada conducted by the Vancouver’s McCreary Centre Society found high rates of homeless kids being molested, with 3/4 of the molestations of boys being by adult women, but there were still no programs for the boys, only for girls.
In 2009 the Guardian reported that researchers from the Lucy Faithfull Foundation discovered that up to 64,000 women are sex offenders in Britain!
Though there is little empirical research, adult women do forcefully rape men, including disabled men. For example:
- According to the US Department of Justice report Sexual Victimization in Juvenile Facilities Reported by Youth, 2008-09 “Approximately 95% of all youth reporting staff sexual misconduct said they had been victimized by female staff.
- Men are also frequently victims of “sexual coercion” by both women and men. (Sexuality and Culture, Summer 2000.) According to a May 2008 study by the University of New Hampshire, 28% of college women and 11% of college men experienced unwanted sexual contact and the perpetrator was a member of the opposite sex 98% of the time for girls and 91% of the time for boys.
