the highly damaging idea that an individual can be “cured” of their sexuality or gender identity through rape. The intended consequence of corrective rape is to force the victim to conform to a heteronormative standard through forced sexual contact.

It has been documented to have happened by survivors of some extreme forms of “conversion therapy” practices.
