No clue to where the thread is headed but this topic is one I've wanted to make for ages. Most of my male friends were introduced to sex at a very early age and usually by some predatory older family friend (mother's good friend) or a baby sitter or caregiver. When i say to them that's rape and she was a pedophile I get the blank stare and chuckles. When i flip it and say what if you were a girl and the woman was a man then i get the outrage. Many fathers are also okay with this and see it as a right to passage, "brucking yuh ducks". This factors into (in Jamaica)
multiple women/families/children, very laissez-faire attitudes towards cheating and the idea that being a man is directly proportional to the number of women you bed or "yutes you get."
How do we begin to change this? This young boys who are preyed upon by older women then turn around and prey upon/encourage young girls to have sex with them as well. When the cat's out of the bag the girl = skettel (slut), boy= stulla (Pimp)
ETA A cab driver told me he NEVER picks up two women, whether on the road or if the passengers called the company for a cab. This is because when he was younger 2 female neighbours held him down and raped him. He says he goes into shock if he even passes two women and this is a big big man. My friend is obssessed with red undies and unshaved lady bits b/c that's what his mom's friend (someone he called "auntie") was wearing when she made him mount her when he was young YUCKKKKKK
