Rape Hospital

Södersjukhuset, southern Stockholm’s main hospital where the clinic will be

A hospital in Stockholm, Sweden has made history as the first hospital in the world to open a rape center exclusively for male rape victims.

According to The Local SE, the hospital, Södersjukhuset, already runs a round-the-clock walk-in clinic for women and girls who have been sexually assaulted in the city.

“We are happy that we now can finally open the first rape clinic for men following the rape clinic for women,” Rasmus Jonlund, a press spokesperson for the Liberal Party, which led the campaign for the department in the Swedish capital, told The Local just ahead of the launch.
 
It is the first in Sweden (…) We think it is the first in the world. We haven’t found another from our research on the world wide web,” he said.
Speaking on the development, Marie Ljungberg Schött, a local Moderate Party party politician and council representative on emergency care said:
“Emergency medical care for raped men will be free of charge, and offered around the clock, all year. So far there has been no specific place for men who are victims of rape to turn to. Therefore we in the Alliance have decided to change this.”

      Before sodomy was legalized, men have been getting molested, raped. Yeah, the percentage of girls getting raped, molested might be higher but doesnt mean it doesn’t happen. I’ve heard stories of boys, having their first sexual encounter from ages as young as 5 with their house girls to useless so called aunts who will touch them and force them. Let’s not downplay what men go through.

      And uncles. I have a friend who actually was sexually molester by his uncle. It started off with gifts, then oral sex. He touched him, played with his “penis”, and asked him to go down on him. He didn’t mention penetration and who knows maybe he’s just too embarrassed to mention that part. . He said, he was 6 yrs old. This particular uncle is married now with children. Sodomy has been going on since the beginning of time, it’s just now that it’s openly done.

    This for me is amazing. when a woman talks about her being rape people take it seriously but finds it funny when his male counterpart say the same. Women rapes men and I applaud this move

    Does anyone know of a male rape victim?

    These are sincere questions o.

    I’m glad to hear this. The world, every organization cater to helping girls/women. We forget that these men that are rapists are also victim of something, so it’s not just women who are victims. Many men are dying silently and due to their nature will never speak up bcos they don’t want to come off as weak or be judged. Men are actually more sensitive than we think. They are very fragile. Many Nigerian men are damaged. When some of them are cheaters, see/treat women as objects or animals its from somewhere. When they can’t control their “D”, have to stick it anywhere. I’ve heard, several women who are rape victims become promiscuous. They get attention/validation from how many men they sleep with bcos they are looking for confidence/love the wrong way. Same applies to men.

    Male rape victims are usually boys who are raped by older men or women. A classic of case of a male rape victim is depicted in the film October 1 by the character of Prince Aderopo.
