The court will today rule if anal penetration can be seen as Rape. Currently in South Africa a boy or man can not be raped, only assaulted as the laws does not provide for anal penatration as rape.

I think this is huge and will keep you updated as to the outcome.

Pietie,

that is huge change, and I hope very much that the law will be passed, for you and all other male victims of sexual abuse in South Africa.

No it was not included. Penetration was only seen as sexual assault and not rape.

There are still some gaps. When a person is for instance analy penetrated with an object it is still classified as assault and not rape.

Just to clarify...the court changed the law to include anal penetration of women to be classified as rape but has still not changed the law to allow for men to be raped. It believes that that is beyond its juristriction. Sorry Pietie and the rest of South Africa's abused boys and men.
