Scandalous Behaviour of Society: "That One View Changed the Whole Scenario"

Student, Maharaja Agrasen Institute of Management Studies Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University

Nowadays, this has become the reality we need to see, not only women but men are also facing the crimes of sexual assault and rape. According to studies, at least one out of every six men has been sexually abused or assaulted, whether as a child or as an adult. As per reports by The Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): Nearly 1 in 38 males have been the victim of sexual assault, rape or domestic violence during their lifetime. In our society, men commit rape to demonstrate their muscularity and to prove that they are more powerful than women. According to society, the victim can only be a woman, and the accused will always be men. Due to the social pressure of what society will think about their sexuality, they hide in the shell resulting in panic attacks, depression etc. This is the societal preconception that men always desire sex. When a woman is raped, it is considered a crime, and there is punishment for it. However, if a man is raped, it is not considered a crime; hence there is no punishment for the same. The men also have the right to equality they also face sexual harassment there are so many cases in which we saw women stalking men and harassing their delegates. This society is trying their best to do the same, but the same society becomes numb and forgets about the innocent man out there, being accused without any fault, just because of fake allegations imposed by women to defame that person or to take advantage of his innocence. We are depriving much more men of justice than is commonly assumed, as we do not have any gender-neutral rape laws. Gender neutrality can be treated as recognition of reality as men are also the victims of the same or very similar offences or act as women.
