Men were created to protect women and children, but in the world, we live in that is actually the opposite, instead of women and children to feel safe around men and protected, they end up feeling scared and afraid to live around them. Rape has become a norm, giving the excuse that a woman was wearing clothes that reveal other parts of the body, what? Is that even a valid excuse? No excuse for raping someone. These men just can’t control themselves then they blame women and their clothing, how crazy is that. To the men of this country, of this world please protect them, if you feel the urge to have sex and doesn’t have a plan, rather masturbate, that will save you from a lot of things, imagine spending your entire life in prison for a 5-minutes pleasure, women please do not be afraid to report rape.

Day and night women are raped and killed, these cruel men they do as they please, they say it’s a free country. Men why are you so heartless? Please stop this nonsense and protect women and children. Women are facing difficulties in South Africa, some are brutally gang raped and murdered and thrown into the rivers and under bridges. This women are raped by cruel men who doesn’t see their value, but they see women as sex objects. Many men rape and kill women using cheating and lies as an excuse, that’s nonsense no one is perfect even men lie and call themselves useless players. I heard foolish men saying, they drink alcohol to beat their wives at home, how can someone drink alcohol to abuse his woman. That’s foolish and very selfish.

Then the issue of girls being raped by their stepfathers or even worse their blood brothers and uncles, what has really become of this Nation, how does one actually feel raping their own flesh and blood, are you dead inside, don’t you have a conscience? Come on, we can do better than that. Then there is this one that I the most, a myth that says if you’re are HIV+ and have sex with an infant then you’ll be healed. That does not exist, I can imagine the pain a 5-months old baby feel from being penetrated by a whole 35-year old man, lying there, helpless, bleeding to death. Indeed, we live in a messed-up world.

If you are that arrogant and evil by having thoughts of rape n stuff, just stop and think. Amanda Gouws, professor of political science at Stellenbosch university wrote:
” Valencia Farmer was 14 years old when she was brutally gang raped and murdered. She was stabbed 53 times. That was in 1999 and her killer was only sentenced for the crime 17 years later.”

” Anene Booysen was gang raped and disembowelled in 2013.”

” In may 2017, Karabo Mokoena became the latest face of South Africa’s gender-based violence epidemic. She was killed and her body burned beyond recognition, allegedly by her ex-boyfriend.
