S*xual abuse no matter what gender or age a person can be extremely traumatizing. A 13-year-old Indonesian boy claims to be raped by an 80-year-old woman. What was sadder about it is crime was not only done once, but multiple times.
Jowo, 80, from Kota Palembang, Indonesia, was taken by authorities. A mother of a 13-year-old boy reported to the police that her son was s*xually abused by the old lady.
The boy’s mother became very worried when she noticed changes in her son. She then asked her what was bothering him. He replied that the he escaped from Rowo’s house because she was making him have s*x with her without his consent.
Her son who is in 2nd grade of high school in Palembang says that he had been raped 10 times. He said that after each act, the old lady would give him 15 rupiahs. The boy was persuaded to do what the old lady wants whenever her husband is gone. He could not say no to her because she threatened to take his life if he rejects her advances.
“My son is still so young and he was forced to do such a thing. I can’t accept this,” says the victim’s mother wants justice for her son. She was furious as she had helped Jowo and her husband by giving them money at times.
This story is a proof that rape does not only occur among women. It is a crime that men often suffer from too. Males are often stereotyped as strong and can defend themselves while women are weak and always needed saving. The case should serve as an eye-opener that anyone can be a victim.
