Anal hazing is apparently a thing in American high schools now

In recent months, several high profile cases of hazing have surfaced in the media featuring boy on boy sexual violence taking place across American high schools. National news outlets covered multiple stories on the phenomenon known as “anal hazing,” a practice involving forced anal penetration of a victim by one or more perpetrators, using a variety of instruments or their fingers. While many of these attacks have taken place in the context of sports culture, they have also occurred outside of athletic settings, as well as on and off school property. In the past year, more than 40 cases have been documented across the nation, in California, New York, Colorado, Illinois, Missouri, Iowa, Massachusetts, and other states.

Furthermore, it is estimated that only about half of all adolescent victims, that is both male and female, tell anyone about their ordeal, with a mere 6 % of all attacks (both male and female) reported to authorities.[1] In light of these observations, it is clear that reported cases of anal hazing greatly underestimate the actual number of victims.
