News from South Africa

Posted on | January 16, 2014 | 16 Comments

And by “news,” of course I mean, horror stories:

In 2004 when Mali was 12 years old, she was raped for the first time by an elderly man that her mother brought home from church. He raped Pearl in her own bedroom, which he did daily until she was 16. “My mother didn’t want me to be gay, so she asked him to move in and be my husband. She hoped it would change me,” she said. . . .
After Ntshangan’s cousin discovered she was a lesbian, he raped her each time he saw her. She had his daughter in 2000. “He never approved of me being a lesbian. He always wanted me to be a girl,” she said. . . .
One night in March 2007, Anelisa was raped by a male friend of her girlfriend. She said: “He took me into an alleyway and said, ‘Listen here. I am going to show you that you are not man. You are not going to date a woman while there are men, and you are a girl.’ ” Anelisa became pregnant from the attack. Her child is 5 years old.

Did I mention that South Africa is the Rape Capital of the World?

    Culture and legal mismatch, and it results in very bad things.

    That defies comprehension – the scope of that evil and how someone can endure so much evil and still manage to get out of bed, eat, and exist.

    Wow. This is what a genuine rape culture looks like. Truly horrifying stuff.

    Bullshit! We all know that it’s really “homophobia” and “stigma” that cause HIV infections… Intergenerational buggery has nothing to do with it!

    Ironically enough, most lesbians of my acquaintance

    report rape or statutory rape early in life.

    Nothing ironic about it as most lesbians report the sexual destruction of their innocence early in life. What is ironic is the partnership between the Pedophiles and the GLBT movement to make pre-pubescent children available to the pedophiles – satisfying their lusts, and creating more gay men and women for the movement. One would think that a person who’d been raped would want to prevent others from being raped.

    Rape Capital of the World and the best market for Rape Insurance to pay for proactive treatment for anti-HIV in the World.

    This is horrible. I wonder if her homosexuality problem wasn’t largely produced as an emotional reaction to not wanting to be with such men when she grew up, given that she was surrounded by them.
    A good example of how evil patriarchy can be.

    Yep, that society is in the midst of collapse. Becoming another Zimbabwe.
    I’m sure this has nothing to do with the sainted Mandela and the fact he was a Communist.

    LOL, how do white liberals deal with this one. Traditional blacks oppose homosexuality. Let’s just be clear, white liberals are racists.
