A 15 year old boy from Nottingham, UK appeared in court (BBC News, Oct. 17, 2012), charged with rape and sexual assault of a 65-year-old man (August 04, 2012). The teenager attacked the man in Mansfield, UK. It is also reported; the man and the teenager are not known to each other. The couple considered strangers is hard for people to believe to be the case and charging the boy with the rape and assault is something people won’t swallow. It is widely believed to be a consented relationship which, as presumed, must have carried on for some time. The boy will be sentenced in mid November this year.
On July 17, 2012, NEWS CHANNEL 4 reported from Oklahoma City; 15-year-old grandson arrested for raping his own grand-mother. The boy named Trevon Isaac raped his 59-year-old grandmother who later called 911 and said Isaac had raped her in her sleep
A small story related decades back in the Indian sub-continent attributed to a very famous lawyer turned politician and the story goes that a prostitute filed a case against a man for rape charges and the lawyer to prove his client’s innocence asked the court’s permission to give a demonstration. After the permission granted, the lawyer as planned came out with a novel idea and had a sewing needle and thread held in his hands. Holding the needle in his hand with head of the needle faced upwards; handed the thread to the lady prostitute and asked her to pass the thread through needle hole. The lady tried passing the thread but the lawyer kept on moving the needle. The lady was frustrated and addressed the court that how could she pass the thread when the lawyer kept on moving the needle? The lawyer explained to the court that in the same token if the lady would not stay still, the alleged rape could not have taken place. As the story goes the court accepted the plea and dismissed the case in favour of the accused.
A manipulating jugglery of the legal system can sometimes come to the rescue of the criminal mind and facilitate an escape route to freedom and create an opportunity even to sell the “story” to make some good money.
Generally speaking, the cases that come to the fore are mostly of instances when older people prey on younger generation indulging in sexual attacks on the opposite sex, sodomy or paedophilia. A 65 year old man attacked sexually seems to be a unique case that some people do not come to terms with. Some religious or others not so religious argue that in this modern age when one can have a willing sexual partner or sex shops easily accessible or even homosexuality having legal sanctity; rape of a 65 year old man is considered to be an amazing situation.
As generally perceived the sexual orgies and promiscuous sexual behaviour, a commonplace among the phallic cults is a limit implicit in all explicit sexual relationships. In a television talk show a rape and murder of an innocent girl was being discussed and a smart young lady sat in the front row was asked to comment on the criminal offence. A sagacious lady that she was said that "faced with such a situation, I would not risk my life and would rather let him (rapist) enjoy and enjoy the act myself as well".
The statistics available tells us that there are more women in the world than men and man being polygamous by nature has inherent urge to have different sexual partners which is never satiating leading some to sexual starvation. A sexually fit person, on an average, has several sex partners before he settles down with one. Therefore, on the ground that women outnumber men by millions, polygamous marriages are still a good acceptable option available guaranteeing dignity, safety and honour must be supported. This will create conducive environment and give both the sexes peace of mind and a reason to live happy and satisfied life.
Quoting the Holy Bible the Verses are categorical in denouncing acts unnatural:
- And there were also male cult prostitutes in the land. They did according to all the abominations of the nations that the Lord drove out before the people of Israel. (1 Kings 14:24)
- You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination. (Leviticus 18:22)
The decision to follow a “straight path” lies with the mankind; the difference between right and the wrong will be the real test of time. They say time is the fourth dimension as it behaves in a surprising manner.
