Male sexual violence is, then, all about notions of power and dominance.

Power and dominance are linked with masculinity and in the context of male sexual violence in armed conflict, power and dominance manifest themselves in the form of emasculation.

Gender stereotyping suggests that men cannot be victims, only perpetrators. Thus, men are not conditioned to think of themselves as potential victims of sexual abuse or potential targets for perpetrators in the same way as women. They see themselves as being able to resist any potential attack and this is how others see them. For example, sexual violence may be considered to be inconsistent with certain societies’ understandings of masculinity.
