Male-on-Male Rape[edit]

My quick searches of statistics didn't see to support the statement that more men report being raped than women. Complete opposite from a few sources... ex: http://www.rainn.org/get-information/statistics/sexual-assault-victims. Does anyone have some valid sources saying otherwise? — Unsigned, by: ShadowofLords / talk / contribs

I think it's badly written, but what the meaning should be is that more males are raped in prison that women. let me see if i can find any statistics. Pink mowse.pngGodotEn live 03:22, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
There was a two-parter in the NYRB last year about prison rape; most of the focus, IIRC, was on juvie and assaults on young boys by other inmates, but also by staffers, if that's any help.

Percentage or absolute numbers? I would imagine in absolute terms, men would vastly outnumber women simply due to the fact that there are more men in prison. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 03:31, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

Clunky article[edit]

Damn this thing is a mess. Where's the mission point? I removed a lot of the rape stuff, and as I removed more words, the better the result looked. But I had to stop and leave the header and a sentence or two. Also, someone has an axe to grind against the US? ħumanUser talk:Human 01:40, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Halp[edit]

This article is well on its way, but it currently needs a lot of proofreading (aside from general expansion). Currently, it's rather ripe with grammatical errors, and contains the occasional breach of the BFANJS guideline. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 12:50, 21 November 2016 (UTC)

I fixed some grammar. Feel free to remove non-missional material. The article is still a bit clunky but better than it was before. Thank you for your input.—チーズバーガー • めん Spinning-Burger.gif (talkstalk) 21:17, 21 November 2016 (UTC)
