This is not the reason rape isn’t prosecuted and treated like a real crime, because even back in the days when the sexes were definitely treated as binary, women STILL didn’t get justice. Women don’t get justice for rape for one reason: Men don’t want to take responsibility for it. Many, many men have a pathological fear of being unjustly accused and convicted of rape, so rape isn’t punished.
