Sexual Victimization in Prison
SV in prison is too often treated as consensual sexual behaviour—but it isn’t, it is abuse.
Most criminals are young men who in their sexual years are confined together. If you put
people of the same sex together then homosexual behaviour will occur; however, this is not
usually consensual— “sexual starvation”.
Normal impulses are called perversions because of the situation they’re in. Faithfulness to one
woman is ridiculed; people deviate from social norms; rules are against sexual contact so
prisoners do the opposite
Attitudes of inmates are distorted by prisons; their views towards family, wives, sisters, etc. are
tainted.
Donaldson (2001)

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
