Very sorry this topic has upset or saddened you. ...

I'm sorry Les. I didn't mean anyone here is upsetting me, nor an agenda I see here. I mean the lack of studies, stats like the 1 in 33 on the RAINN site (I wonder what the 90% confidence interval (estimated) would look like for example), lots of places, the justice departments inaction on prison rape,

As for linking to material, I'm sorry I don't have sources collected and organized. Often MSA is a footnote talking SA (assuming female). It's telling we have to say "male rape", "prison rape"... Like, it's not "real rape"? It would make a great thread to try to assemble something like that.

These are a few I have immediately:
http://www.justdetention.org/en/articlesandlinks.aspx with the human rights report.

Mic Hunter's SA in the Military book, which I understand was difficult to publish due to perceived lack of interest.

* 2.1% of men reported forced vaginal sex compared to 1.6% of women in a relationship in the previous year. http://pubpages.unh.edu/~mas2/ID45-PR45.pdf

* 94% of youth in correctional facilities reported being sexually abused by female staff. http://bjs.ojp.usdoj.gov/content/pub/pdf/svjfry09.pdf

* Among inmates reporting staff sexual misconduct, ~ 65% reported a female aggressor. http://bjs.ojp.usdoj.gov/content/pub/pdf/svpjri0809.pdf

* 50% of homeless youth reported being sexually abused by a female. http://www.nursing.ubc.ca/PDFs/ItsNotWhatYouThink.pdfAll

I'm CSA not ASA. I've tried to learn as much as I can on MASA, and I try to always mention ASA and highlight it when talking male sexual abuse.
