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.

Many, many men have a pathological fear of being unjustly accused and convicted of rape, so rape isn’t punished.
