Ask a simple question, get a simple answer:

Since this is T_P I will first give my opinion as to this and why I ask this: I have noticed an interesting double-standard that applies to rape in the real world. It's one of the only cases these double standards favor women (about 99% of the rest of the time it varies from bad to GRRSNARLIDJITS). This double-standard is that where rape, as it is defined as forcible penetation, legally does not exist or is recognized where women rape men. To me it makes no sense to react with horror to a male teacher getting Hot For Student and having kids by that person and say, making a celebrity out of Mary Kay LeTourneau or some other such person with the genders reversed.

Now, my simple question is this: should rape of men by women and female pedophiles be punished equally as stringently and ruthlessely as when the genders are reversed? If Yes, why? If no or "http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/RapeIsOkWhenItIsFemaleOnMale" do explain precisely the convoluted thinking that goes into making one acceptable and the other not.
