"Men: If you were raped by another man, would you report it..."

I'm still waiting for a certian someone to come in here and say, "I would make sure to get his number before he left".

Reporting it to the donut-eaters so they can file some paperwork and you can become a statistic.. that is letting him off. Paying a seedy "friend" to burn his house down, or kidnap him and y'all chop him into pieces, grind his bones up and feed his guts to gators in the swamp seems more effective.
You win the lotto! It's your lucky Friday!LOL........

I'm pretty sure the numbers of other men who have indeed been raped thought they would kill a guy for doing that to them too. It's talk for the most part. Rape is traumatic. It changes you drastically. Yeah, it might make you crazy enough to kill, but I seriously doubt that is the majority.

the hypothetical situation has changed several times throughout the course of this thread, and it continues to take on new restrictions.

if he drugged me? if I didn't know who he was? Hell I doubt I'd even remember it. Maybe I'd wake up the next morning and think I ate a toxic burrito the night before. I mean, who knows?

Never assume, Dorrans.

Yeah this is getting ridiculous. It's like somebody is expecting us to say, "Oh no it would turn me gay and would be fabulous." We are horrified by rape and hate it and incapable of being rational human beings about it.

What use are your skills ?
Clubbed? I konk my noggin almost everyday at work and it takes a heck of a whack. Drugged? Unless they slip it into my sealed can of pop, it isn't happening?

All rational thought goes out of the window when someone experiences such a traumatic thing as rape. I'm strong physically and mentally, but I'd probably break down in tears and go into clinical depression, and maybe just keep what happened to myself. Or maybe not. I don't know.

I beg to differ, in the original question, it says "Lets say that he either drugged you, or there's more than one of them so you can't fight, or kill them before it happens..."

That premise hasn't changed, with the possible exception that I added the possibility of being struck from behind and incapacitated.

I think, for the purposes of the thread, it's the inability to fight them off which is important, not the chosen method of the attacker.
