I guess my biggest beef with all of this is the idea that because males typically are the more dominant gender, they can't be raped, because rape is about power and obviously women are never in power over men. . . In December, I had to remove one of my clients from his home, detain him until his service coordinator could arrive to help him go to the police because his girlfriend had assaulted him at knife point because she felt threatened by the idea that his female social workers were helping him get food, clothing, employment, and a place to live independently of her. This same client was sexually assaulted. When he went into court, the judge granted him only a partial restraining order (she could come near him, as long has she didn't verbally or physically abuse him) and told him that as a man, he should have been able to stop her. A 19 year old kid moderately mentally retarded (actual diagnosis), try to stop his female younger girlfriend who was holding a knife to his throat, without hurting her or worse, killing her defending himself? I don't get it. . . a few months later, this kid was arrested and had to take a plea b/c his friend brought underage girls into his home and when he protested and had his mom come over to help get them out, the girls retaliated by saying he'd touched them inappropriately.
