A Surge of British Male Immigrants Reporting Forced Hetero Marriages

The British government’s Forced Marriage Unit (Um, they have one of those? Awesome) reports a spike in reports of male victims reportedly coerced into marriages with women, many because their families suspected they are gay. The unit received 65 percent more reports in 2009 (220) versus 2008 (134), with most involving families from Pakistan, India and Bangladesh. [BBC]
