Men rarely get raped, but women and children get sexually assaulted now and then. Most of the time, male victims try to hide and deny their victimization, similar to female victims, unless they have serious physical injuries. The offence of rape, as it is defined and enforced has been the subject of an ongoing process of evaluation and reform for several decades. Nowadays the number of raped men is increasing gradually.
In Gqeberha, a male initiate was raped by unknown men and killed after the ordeal. According to MDNnews the victim was gay. It was allegedly the perpetrators' way of teaching him how to be man enough.
You cannot teach someone how to be man enough by killing him. There are ways in which you can do that, but by not forcing any male to do what he does not want to do or harming him.
Violence does not solve anything. ...
"Through violence you may murder a murderer, but you can't murder murder. Through violence you may murder a liar, but you can't establish truth. Through violence you may murder a hater, but you can't murder hate. Darkness cannot put out darkness. Only light can do that". - Martin Luther King, Jr.
Establishing truth is hard when we live in a society colored by the deceptions of violence. Our society has swallowed the bloody belief that violence solves problems. We wrap violence in acceptability and even admiration. Violence permeates our culture. It seeps into our entertainment. It flavours our national identity.
Violence is the only thing that maintains the feud between the families. Although people think that violence can solve everything, Violence cannot solve problems because violence only creates more problems. I believe that violence doesn’t solve anything. Violence causes more violence and it destroys lives and societies. In the world we don’t know What’s going on! [
