Walk In Her Shoes?

Men don't need to walk in women's shoes, literally or figuratively, to understand about being a victim of rape (article, April 27). I'm not sure why your reporter seemed to allege that only women and girls can be victims of rape. As in domestic violence, any human being can be a victim and any human being can be a perpetrator. Men can be raped both by other men and by women.

As long as we treat every issue with stereotypes and false generalizations (man-bad-woman-good), we will continue to miss the root causes of injustice.
