Petition Details

Please include 'made to penetrate' or 'rape by envelopment' under rape laws.

Additional Information

Female-on-male rape currently does not legally count because the definition only covers penetration of the victim. Research shows that female-on-male rape is not simply a milder 'rape light' but causes moderate to severe trauma just as it does in female victims.
