Living With South Africa’s ‘Corrective Rape’ Culture

Corrective rape, the attempt to “cure” lesbians to heterosexuality, is escalating in severity in South Africa. This film explores the phenomenon through the story of a black single mother from near Johannesburg.

Busisiwe’s five children are all the offspring of corrective rape. As a lesbian, she was raped in order to be “cured” of her homosexuality. Despite that they’re a product of the hate crime, her relationship with her children is not destroyed: “I only want them to succeed in life, to have the things I didn’t.” In Gauteng near Johannesburg, crime and violence are on the increase and life is tough. With the courage found in her children, Busisiwe helps to inform the young the importance of safe sex.

    OK, where’s my other comment? Is Disqust editing them, or something?

    Anyway, in addition to what I said before, we in the West are collectively “correctively” intellectually raped by our socialist elitist “betters,” for our own good, of course.

    Why do we give them cell phones and airplanes?

      I would rather have “corrective rapes” than “gay marriage”.

    A widely held belief in South Africa is that a man may be cured of AIDS if he rapes a baby girl.
    Still, there’s no country worse for females than Canada.

      The anti-Canadian harpies would do well to go and live in any African ‘country’.

    I wonder if there’s any multicultural grant funding available for an exchange program….

    I am stunned that anyone in ZA raped 5 times isn’t long dead from AIDS.

      Must be the lemon, garlic and beetroot.

      On AIDS, I would trust the words of Dr. Montagnier. He says the best way to thwart the dreaded disease is through fundamental sanitation and hygiene.

    20 seconds of thought would make it obvious that rape is the best way to put women off of sex with *any* male.

      Thought? The avg., sub-Saharan IQ is 68. Einsteins they are not.
      Of course, if they were muslimes they would stone them to death. Those women don’t know how good they have it. //s//
      (Gotta put these things in perspective.)

      It runs a close second to FGM.
