Abstract:     
This article critically examines the arguments and factual claims cited by those who oppose gender-neutral definitions of rape. It considers these issues in light of one of the primary reasons for the enactment of gender-neutral rape laws - the appropriate labelling of male sexual victimisation. This analysis draws on the growing body of research evidence that examines the nature, impact and consequences of male rape, as well as law reform literature from a variety of jurisdictions.
