We always talk about equality and the fact that men and women should be placed in the same position but it’s unfortunate how crimes against men don’t get the same importance.
Sexual molestation is something that affects men and women equally and while we talk about rapes on women, we need to know that men get raped too and it’s equally essential to talk about it because they deserve justice as much as women do.
This incident took place in Africa and it has left us all in a state of shock. A man was kidnapped and raped for 72 hours by 3 women. The incident came to light when he was found semi-naked, exhausted and drugged in a dumping field in South Africa.
Here’s what reportedly happened:
The 23-year-old man boarded a communal taxi that already had 3 women seated in there. Suddenly the drive changed the directions half-way and asked the boy to be seated in the front. The woman allegedly injected him with an unknown substance and when the boy woke up, he found himself in an unknown place on a bed.
The females forced him to consume viagra and energy drinks and continued taking turns on him for three days before they dumped him in a field in Benoni, South Africa.
The boy was abused and sleep-deprived for three days with constant misbehavior displayed by these three women who left him helpless. It was only after a passerby saw the boy and called the police that this matter came to light.
This isn’t the first time that a man has been molested and this certainly isn’t the last time but very few of these cases make it to the news because the society refuses to accept that men can be victims too!
In our fight for equality, we shouldn’t just talk about rights for women but also men. We need to ensure that ‘Humans’ are safe and not discriminate their security on the basis of their gender.
