Although our discussion to this point has focused primarily on the prison scene as practiced by some heterosexuals and bisexuals and its effect upon the homosexual inmate, incidents of sexual exploitation, intimidation, and assault have also occurred to some of the heterosexual inmates as well. Furthermore, the psychological consequences of these attacks may be far more damaging to those men whose basic sexual orientation is heterosexual, because the victims feel a sense of loss of their “manhood.” Moreover, support systems and assistance have not developed in prison to assist these young men with their trauma nearly to the extent that support systems and assistance have developed for their homosexual counterparts, as we discuss in Chapter 11.
