But one detail that some people do not know about the law that is federal is that a state may provide punishment only for males to equalize deterrents to teenage pregnancy. He is claiming that, at the time of the crime, he was 17 years old and had sexual intercourse with a 16 year old female. And because of California’s statute that only criminalizes against males when acting in this behavior, and that the female was not charged with any crime, even though she was just as guilty as he was.
Police reports seemed to bear this out, with in some cases a ratio of 12 to 14.5 female victims to every one male victim. But another reason is that because women were seen as weaker and more helpless than men due to sex roles, and men on the other hand were seen as more sturdy and self-reliant, the study of abused husbands seemed rela... ... middle of paper ... ... collected in the last several years are completely wrong and only one in 14 victims of spousal abuse are men, these are men who are hurting and need services that are currently not available. Continuing to portray spousal violence solely as a women’s issue is not only wrong – it’s also counterproductive. And encouraging such unnecessary fragmentation and divisiveness will ultimately do more harm than good. No one has, or should have, a control on pain and suffering.
Unfair Statutory Rape Laws For Teenagers Common sense seems to dictate that statutory rape laws are too tough on teenagers. Most people in our society do not realize that they break the law everyday. It is often said that statutory rape is committed a lot more than the people hear about. Teens that go to the same school as their younger mate, are getting arresting for the consensual interactions that they are doing. Statutory rape is when someone underage is sexually active with an “adult” meaning 17 or older.
Rape crimes will not get reported seventy five percent of the time, due to some victims being too afraid to speak up. There is a problem in society; big issues like these need to be stopped. Rape is not just being touched or molested without wanting it, it is actually really more than it may appear. Rape can happen to anybody, anywhere, and at any time. The number of victims is shocking.
A minor does not know what is best for him or her it should not matter whether or not the victim is willing to testify. If proof that a minor is indeed involved in a cases where his or her partner is considered an adult by law then that person should be convicted. It is hard to prosecute statutory rape cases because most of the ‘victims’ are not willing to testify against their partners. The minors involved in the cases are usually in the relationship because they want to be not becaus...
The old definition went as, “The carnal knowledge of female forcibly and against her will.” (fbi.gov) .This definition was recently changed because it was too broad and different jurisdictions interpreted it differently to disenfranchise certain victims. The new definition goes as follows, “Penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object, or oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, without the consent of the victim.” (fbi.gov) Some people do not understand the definition of rape. Recently a photo went viral on the internet asking high school students when they thought rape was acceptable. The students were asked and the answers were alarming. According to the photo obtained from thescooping.com, 54% of the male students thought it was okay to rape a female if she starts to have sex with him an... ... middle of paper ... ...alistic Practice Model.
Most commonly, people question if domestic violence actually happens towards men because they feel like “if it happened frequently, we would hear more about it” (Cook 1). People also feel like if a man reports acts of sexual violence, then it is from “a woman who has been assaulted and [was] fighting back” (Cook 2) and that the injuries cannot be serious because women usually are not as strong as men (Cook 2). However, none of this is actually true, “the extent of [domestic abuse towards men] remains unknown… [because] violence against men tends to go unrecognized since men are less likely to admit to or report incidents because of embarrassment” (Barber 35). Many people do not believe that a woman could cause harm to a man, but in fact “male victims may experience broken limbs, knife wounds, teeth marks, scratches and lacerations” (Barber 38). Domestic abuse is not limited to physical harm, in fact, domestic violence is defined as “verbal, sexual, and emotional intimidation or financial abuse” (Barber 35).
They also feel that to push a man as far as to commit an assault sexual frustration should also be taken into consideration. But the criticisms against this approach include the notion that not all men who come from a broken home go out and commit rape and systematic abuse.

The class picks this vignette for our quantitative paper. It is a very touchy subject. Lots of people do not consider sex between and fifteen years old and twenty-one is statutory rape. It has only been a few empirical studies have examined factors that influence whether young adults perceive statutory relationship as a crime. Two studies specifically examining perceptions of non forced adolescent-adult sexual relationship demonstrate that greater age gaps between partners lead to more negative perceptions of the older partners (Oudekerk,2013).
