Off-topic: Great post at Feministing.com

You may recall reader James Landrith's account of being raped.

By societal consensus, claims that males are raped are not taken seriously. In the case of prison rape and the statutory rape of boys, rape is a punchline.

Kudos to Ann at Feministing.com who takes Time Magazine to task for making light of a rape -- Time presumably treated the story in a flippant manner because the genders were reversed from the norm: read it here.
