There are 51,7 million people in SA
48.7% are males = 25.1779 million
65.6% are in the age group 15 to 64 years = 16.517 million
25% admitted to having raped a woman =
Strong, proud, virile, examples of the gender of the species admitted to having sex with a woman without her consent, the frequency of repetition of the act not published.
65 000 sexual offences were committed in South Africa last year.
One in 36 rape cases get reported. If only half of the 65 000 were rape, then in reality 1 170 000 woman were raped during 2012.
That was 3 205 every single day. 133 every hour. 2 every minute. 1 every 30 seconds.
Could my maths be bad or are the stats wrong?
Whatever, tonight I go to sleep with a heavy heart.
Ashamed of my gender.
Ashamed of my country.......
