Boys too are prone to sexual abuse

These days’ men have started targeting small boys too for satisfying their sexual urge. While passing through any footpath, we must have heard of children crying for some reason or the other. Has any one of us ever thought of why they are crying? We never know what these children must be going through. It couldn’t be just sexual abuse but there might also be instances when the child must have been brutally assaulted by his or her mother or father. According to a recent survey, many of the boys are molested at a very young age and the situation remains unchanged even today. Boys are not only molested but they are raped too. Rising homosexuality is one of the reasons behind the rising molestation incidents which have gone unnoticed.

Forget about slums. Even parents from respectable families are shy enough about having discussions pertaining to sex with their children. Yes, a girl does have an opportunity to discuss her problems with her mother. But what about boys? They do not have this liberty! The reason could be anything like false ego or superior feeling given to him by his parents telling him that he will be the head of the family in the future. So even if a boy is molested or raped, he will hide it and pretend like he is strong and nothing has happened to him. His behaviour might become inappropriate but the parents will just conceal it by saying that he is a boy. They will also say that he has been groomed in that manner to make decisions for himself at this age.

Even today, boys do not have much liberty to discuss about their sexual problem faced by them with their parents which is unjustified. Irrespective of whatever the child’s age is, parents have to be more open about sex and sexual assaults which their children could face. This education shouldn’t be restricted only to girls. Often a mother explains to her daughter the difference between good and bad touch. This knowledge must be imparted to boys too by their fathers.

We read in the book of Genesis, Chapter 19 of how God destroyed the twin cities of Sodom and Gomorrah because the men in those cities were filled with lust and were gays (homosexuals). Romans, Chapter 1, Verse 27 also tell us “Men committed shameless acts with men and received their due penalty for their error.”

Homosexual anal intercourse carries a high risk of disease (read AIDS), which is recognized in the Holy Scriptures of all religions where gay men are said to receive in their bodies the due penalty for their sins.
