I thought we can't fix the rape epidemic in SA ?

11 February 2014, 08:47
I would start with each and every sportsman is SA.
Have them all sign a pledge articulating their stance against rape,
each and every one of them, Naturally it is just a start with sportsman. Parents, teachers, businesses and all academic institutions must have a visible pledge somewhere.
How many hundreds of sportsman and woman are not giving some time back to our kids?
It should be mandatory, My school was visited by Peter Pollock and he spread the good news message about God and instilled some positive messages to a school. 
He must have gone to many schools,
These days , each and every church needs some pledge on the entrance hall showing an understanding that they do not condone rape,
Kids need it schooled that they could get long sentences if raping somebody.
Serious campaigning , Why should advertisers get all the airtime, Why do big earning businesses or even better all businesses contribute 0.1 % of their profits or turn over, That could amount to big money.
In SA we would have to identify that if there are so many rapists, why is there no school or reform if possible.
Saying its illegal has not helped til now?
Saying its illegal doesn't remove the rapists from our society ,
Why not meet them half way, or at least intervene, 
I could never imagine raping a woman, or my woman or any woman,
Heavens ! 
Always use lie detector tests when a woman pleads rape, Use it without hesitation.
Just to avoid those few psychopaths that plead rape even if you never kissed them or saw them naked.
Would be nice if any sportsman around the world would speak up for the epidemic, Voice it more, make it soundly understood, Its not allowed or tolerated.
Good guys do not rape ...
If we cant fix it, we sure can start doing something,
Imagine sending social workers to rural areas and meeting with woman there and creating a study to see rape relevance , maybe within family members or uncles etc...
It would then open a Pandora's box of what we are really dealing with in SA,
Provide intervention, Build jails purely and solely for these people but do it with intervention.100's of councilors needed.
It would lift our local woman's pride up immensely,
This 7 days each year or ten days or 14 doesn't do much,
If the Proteas lose, I don't want to hear stories !
I want to know you will each visit the schools and minister against rape, then come talk about the pitch conditions.
Same as you Bafana , If you don't put the goals may you spend some quality time giving back,
We need more of these guys talking against rape is all i am saying,
