Rape is a common form of sexual violence, but not all sexual violence is rape. The term rape is often used as a legal definition to specifically include sexual penetration (penetration of vagina, anus with any part of the body or any object, or inserting sex organ to another’s mouth) without consent. In Malaysian law, rape is limited to insertion of the penis into a vagina against the person’s will. If you are under 16 years old, sex with OR without consent is statutory rape. (It is a crime because the law assumes that the rapist takes advantage of the young age by using his position of authority over her/him, or because of their professional relationship or other kinds of relationship of trust).
Regardless of form and type of rape, it is an unacceptable crime, and never is it the victims’ fault.
