Women raping men ,is the magnitude huge enough?

It is amazing how time has flown.Being caught up in a number odf conferences and meetings.Feeling so lonely that I have not been on Pulse to hear and listen to the great works of women across the world.
Just today coming out of the church I was perusing the Daily Nation and Lol,What catches my eyes,Some women in Zimbabwe to be jailed for raping men!
Immediately my mind races to Ma Dube,my dear sister,ahahah What is happening down there?
This also has generated alot with the people I was walking with.Some claiming that those women should be senteced for life,others saying women rarely rape men.I dont know it is such a cruel time we are in.Everyone is looking for survival.
However I would really would like to hear from other countires what is the penality of a woman raping a man?
It is funny,however it also sends a question of morality,sexual harrassment ,the law,gender balance

Good Questions

When I first read this, I thought, what? How is that even possible? But then reading your concluding sentence I realized you had zeroed in on the essential questions. I suppose anyone can sexually exploit anyone else. What a grim thought! I prefer to think of women as nurturers rather than abusers...and thankfully, I think that is generally true!
