BEIJING: The sexual assault on men is now a crime after China effected an amendment to the criminal law.
Indecent or sexual assault on others, men or women, now carries a minimum sentence of five years in prison. In the former law, the clause "others" meant only "women". The amendment was passed by the top legislature in August, Xinhua news agency reported.
Till Sunday, it was difficult to file cases involving male sexual assault as the law did not did not recognise it as a crime.
In 2010, a security guard sexually abused his male colleague in the employee dormitory. Instead of being charged with sexual assault, the offender was convicted on the lesser charge of intentional injury and was sentenced to 12 months in prison.
India need to learn from China how gender equality can be brought. In India, a girl can falsely accuse any male of trying to molest or rape and does not get punished for false accussion. Even if girls rape a male they are not charged appropriately. Such cases have happened in past in India.
Good decision China!!
Don't they have Feminists in China?
Proud of China. Once said is final. Very honest in implementing the law. No misuse like Indian politicians and rich.

Men don't mind getting raped by beautiful girls repeatedly
One step towards gender neutrality. Good job China.
I think this is where India and China can cooperate sincerely, India has a lot of female rape cases, I think instead of punishing those women there, they must be sent to India to be a part of our elite women police force. I think they can better teach a lesson to the eve-teasers and rapists. Those found guilty of women harassment, eve teasing, and other such crimes be let on the mercy of these really tough women.
Biologically Fact : Even if female is not willing, male can have sxx with her. However, reverse is not true - if a male is not willing, female can't have sxx with him by any mean.
LOL! Funny! but some thing is changing in the closed society of Chinese
Soon we too will require to amend the law here in India too
