In Brazil the new Law 12.015/2009, Article 213 of the Penal Code was amended, does not bring the term "woman" but "someone", so, man, in theory, can be a victim of rape.
Rape is considered one of the most violent crimes (hate crime).
In the case of rape against minors (rape vulnerable), it is also possible to speak of pedophilia.
Crime of Rape in Brazilian Penal Code "Article 213 - Pena Solitude, 6-10 years,"
Prosecution of public private except art. 225, § 1 and 2 of the Criminal Code - the victim or his parents can not meet the costs of the proceedings if the offense is committed with abuse of parental rights, or quality of stepparent, guardian or trustee. If the victim is not more than fourteen years penal action will be public private initiative.
Currently the penalty in Brazil is 6-10 years imprisonment for the criminal, increasing to 8-12 years if there is bodily injury of the victim or if the victim has between 14-18 years old, and 12-30 years if conduct results in death.
The use of a weapon, possibly by principle consunção will be absorbed, the agent being punished only for rape or indecent assault, but this will occur since the pipes are not autonomous and independent of each other
Every 12 seconds a woman is raped in Brazil. Starting from alarming, Ana Maria Rattes, president of the State Council of Women's Rights (CEDIM), initiated the debate "Violence, abuse and sexual exploitation against women", organized on Thursday by the Institute Ary Carvalho, the capital of Rio de Janeiro.
The punishments for offenders with hardened Law No. 11.340, named Maria da Penha, and sanctioned in August. Now, the penalty of detention for crimes of domestic violence tripled was no more than a year now and can reach three. The court has 48 hours from the complaint, to remove the offender from the victim.
An emblematic case of the last days was a case of rape within the public transport "bus" in the State of Rio de Janeiro, where a teenager accused of raping and assaulting a passenger on a bus line 369 (Bangu-Carioca) continued terrorizing passengers even after raping women and stealing other people in the collective, according to the police investigation. He was apprehended days after his mother convince him to surrender.
According to one of the victims, the young man threatened to kill a passenger thinking he was a cop, even after searching him and finding no police identification. The woman said he told her to hand the passenger a pistol ammunition with which he would be killed.
"He came to send the woman take the weapon ammo, but she said she did not know how to do this. And he had already searched the passenger and knew he was not a cop. This fleeting thought until he too was raped. He acted with great wickedness, "said the officer-holder of the 17th Precinct (St. Kitts), Mauritius Luciano de Almeida.
On account of this wave of rape, women who have suffered sexual abuse, decided to join the march of the whores, where there are already many other countries this kind of demonstration against any violence against women.
The first march of the whores in Brazil took place in São Paulo, on June 4, 2011, organized by advertising curitibana Mado Lopez. After the announcement of the event by creating a Facebook page, over 6000 people attended. However, unlike the versions in other countries, only about 300 people attended, according to the count of the Military Police. That same year, began the demonstration in Recife, Belo Horizonte, Brasília and Itabuna and in 2012, on June 29, occurred the 1st March of the whores in the city of Teresina. On July 28, 2012, was the first march in São José do Rio Preto, State of Sao Paulo.
According to anthropologist Julia Zamboni, the movement is made by feminists seeking equality. "Being called a whore is a condition sexist. Men say we bitch is when we say yes to them and when we say no," he said. "You bitch is because we are free," he said. In Brazil, the march also draws attention to the number of rapes occurring in the country. Every year, approximately 15,000 women are raped.
Although there is alarming numbers of violence against women, the federal government has several projects assisting women victims of rape or sexual violence.
Anyway, freedom and justice, are an asset that needs essential conditions for it to flourish, no one lives alone. The happiness of a person is to love and be loved. We must cultivate life, denouncing all types of aggression (violence) suffered.
I conclude with the words of Paulo César Coelho:
The afternoon consumed disgusting
Hypocrite underserved leaves
In the air guilt.
Sex abrupt wicked, evil done!
Lacerated body humiliated fallen.
In gutter outrage!
Wounded dignity dying
Act terrifying! Afternoon follows
Consummate lying undead
Tearful. Legs at night
The cowardly, sneaking.
Unpunished and smiling!
The rape along with child abuse constitute acts of greater evils of mankind and only applicable in the sick mind of cowards.
