Australia: The Evil Within

World  (tags: world, humanrights, Australia, Indigenous, violence )

- 1919 days ago -
he Indian gang rapes and the Steubenville rape in the US have brought sexual assault into focus. But it remains all too common in one part of the Australian community which is too afraid to report it, writes Yatungka Gordon.

I wish these sick minded bast**ds would get the thoughts of abusing girls/women out of their heads. If they need help, then I would suggest that they go and see a mental doctor to help take care of their abusive thoughts. Thanks Rose

This really is a huge issue, and the worst part is not only the fact she will be ostracized for complaining but that if he goes to prison and something happens to him then she gets the blame. When I was living at Arufu a womans attacker was sent to prison where thankfully for the taxpayers the mongrel killed himself. The next day She was kicked out of the town and forbidden from coming back as she was apparently now a murderer (I never knew they cared about murder until then since they where always so angry when one of them got taken away for it).

Everything about the communities is messed up, the government throws millions of dollars at them and all they do is pop out dozens of kids to get more dole money, then spend that money on booze and petrol to sniff leaving their kids filty and starving. The kids then go on to do the same thing as their parents convinced its ok because "the whites owe them".

Something needs to be done and fast but everyone is too scared of offending them to do anything real, and sadly I don't think nuking from orbit would be considered.

@David Lilja: did you actually read this? It is not white men who are raping women, but their fellow aboriginals - usually relatives.

It is a very sad fact that rape or sexual abuse are most often committed by family members, friends of the family or people in a position of trust hence making it even more difficult to report or talk about. I have often noticed that 'closed groups' tend to have a lot of sexual abuse committed in their ranks; whether an ehtnic or religious minority. Close knit groups are breeding grounds for incest, always have been and probably will continue so for a long time. It is a terrible situation and it is hard to see what can be done about it.
