My official research question is how does being a heterosexual male versus homosexual male change the dynamic of shame and fear when they are raped?
My approach for my Illustration of Research is a traditional style essay. My subtopics I chose to put in my paper are:
- the effects of rape on men
- homosexual male fear/shame
- heterosexual male fear/shame
During my research there was a bunch of talking about how men physical and emotional state takes a long term effect so I felt like that was two of the most important things. Also the long term effects and how they effect the rest of their life. I wanted to compare and contrast those effects to heterosexual and homosexual males. I want to explore why be shamed about something you have no control over. Society think men have control and strength over being raped. My sources talk about the effects on men and then talk about how homosexuality and heterosexuality differ from one another. With homosexuality it talks about how they compare with women and contrast with men.
