Lesbian women in South Africa live in daily fear of being raped and murdered within their own country for being gay. "Corrective rape," when a man rapes a lesbian woman to "cure" her of lesbianism and "set her straight," is a growing problem

They think that's going to make them like it?

Oh, that's right. They aren't supposed to derive any pleasure from sex.

That's what genital cutting is for.

Yikes!

I am grateful I was born in USA.

Thanks Cher, from Friday there is a big move countrywide, its called Sixteen days of activism for violence against women and children, and the Police services are going all out to try and stop this kind of crime, especially rape of women and children. whether or not it will do anything remains to be seen, but they are really trying to get into the more rural areas and also the rough areas in the cities, where the so called corrective rape took place when that young gay girl died .... terrible what they did...just terrible.

In America the government sends people to prison to be raped into submission.
Signed
The same politicians who allow these practices should be publicy raped until they admit to their wrongs.
An eye for an eye is their creed, so be it.
Should this become the practice we would have a hard time finding one of these brave 'leaders' to punish. They would hide, their former pride would become their shame.
Do unto others? WWJD

I'm all for convicted rapists becoming either eunuchs or corpses... A woman who's made her decision of partner and who conducts their sexual activities in private should be considered no less than any other such, hetero or homo sexuality notwithstanding. This type of rape 'corrects' NOTHING, only turns the victim against ever again accepting sexual - or any other - relationships with men. Guys have hands and can practise autoerotic sex without harming anyone or do what they want with an artificial surrogate (sex 'toy' or love-doll) vice harming fellow humans.
