This is a comment by wellokaythen on the post “An Eye for an Eye? Jerry Sandusky, Male Survivors and Prison Rape“.
“I’m not talking about the hatred of Sandusky, forget that for the moment, I’m talking about the idea of other prisoners agreeing to rape him. It’s this easy assumption that you can readily find a bunch of men who will line up to rape another man and get away with it. Presumably these designated prison rapists will really enjoy it, as any man would, because after all we men are happy to rape someone if there’s a good reason. We just tap into something all of us men have, right, that thing where we use rape to keep people in line. [Sarcasm, by the way.] What the hell is that about?
“As a large man myself, I couldn’t help noticing the tweet suggesting you get the really big guys to rape him. That’s what we big guys are, you know: extra-bad rapists.
“Amazing how easily some men volunteer other men to be rapists. What the hell?!”
