Men Could Suffer Death Sentence for Rape During the Colonial Days

     During the days where feminists in the US love to claim men had all the power and controlled women like slaves, rape laws during the 1600's state that men could suffer the death penalty if found guilty of rape. Here's a source from the University of Virginia titled, "Sexual Misconduct in Plymouth Colony":
"Based on these cases, one can assume that the people of Plymouth operated under an unwritten code of moral conduct before 1636. The new laws embodied this code, and distinguished between capital and criminal sexual offences. 'Sodomy, rapes, and buggery"'were declared "capital offences lyable to death" (PCR 11:12)."

Interesting that the almighty patriarchy would kill men for raping the so-called second class citizens.
