I just read the article regarding the sicko mum from Bloemfontein who raped her own son over a period of years. Her defence, she’s sorry, but it’s not really her fault since she was abused as a child as well and this should be seen as an excuse for her own actions. WTF?!
Scum like her (because I absolutely refuse to refer to gutter trash like her and her kind) as human beings or even animals, should be strung up in public by the very genitals the bothers them so. In her case, I would recommend her ovaries.
For years the pieces of walking-talking-excrement will convince the child that is their fault that this is happening to them, the child somehow seduced them. It is not their fault but the child’s fault.
And when they get caught? Their defence are always, but I did it because I was abused as a child. Bullsh*t I tell you. If you really were abused, molested and raped as a child, and you know the damage these acts caused you, you will not repeat the actions on another child.
Since we all know that the death penalty is out of the question in this country, we can all hope for a long prison sentence and the only time this sorry excuse for a human being be allowed to be released from prison? The day they carry her feet first from the prison. But not all agree if one takes into account the responses to the article, and I quote some of them :
Mosaku Motheo - October 30, 2013 at 23:25 : The sentence is too harsh, 10 years imprisonment would be better.
Grant Montgomery - October 31, 2013 at 01:43 : The woman needs professional help. Prison will serve no purpose, it wont cure her and it will not deter others. Eperts should look into what causes this type of unnatural act and try and prevent it.
Johnsmith Johnsmith - October 31, 2013 at 05:23 : What force was used? Was he penetrated with foreign objects? Was the boy under the age of consent, that is, 16 years? How does a woman rape a male, without using foreign objects?
Johnsmith Johnsmith - October 31, 2013 at 05:27 : What will prison achieve? Correction? Rehabilitation? Deterrent to others performing the same deeds? Really?
Lucky Phala - October 31, 2013 at 06:54 : Is n't good plz forgive her guys she needs to be forgiven.may 3 months is fine for her in jail.we make mistakes all of us guys.
Khul'buse Zungu - October 31, 2013 at 07:21 : What the woman did to her son was very wrong, and she derseves to be punished for that, but sentencing her to life imprisonment is very harsh. What they both need is rehabilitation, i am sure after a few disappointments with men the woman turned to her own child becoz unlike most men she was of the opinion that he wont break her heart. Despite what happened, they still need each other.
Pume Magwaza - October 31, 2013 at 07:36 : Are most of you commenting here without sin. I think not. Its just that you were fortunate not to get exposed. We are all sinners. Separate mother and son and try to help the mother. The mind is the enemy in many instances,like poverty, loneliness, disturbed, etc. Some religions allow an old man to marry a 9 yo and have sex. That's disgusting but is legal.
Karen Ramsay Tannahill - October 31, 2013 at 07:39 : Such a sad situation . Not sure that a man raping his daughter would have illicited such outrage. And as to those people who disregard the fact that she was abused as a child, unless you have been subjected to this violence, you can't begin to understand what this can do to a persons psyche. Our "correctional " services are no such thing. They don't correct anything. This woman needs help, as does her son, or he himself may well turn into an abuser.
A certain “Johnsmith Johnsmith” was very vocal in defending this piece of crap, she deserves much more than just a prison sentence, she deserves to be punished for what she has done to her child until the day she dies. Chances are that this poor child will never have a normal relationship in his life, chances are that he will distrust and fear women for most (if not all) of his life.
And Karen Ramsay Tannahill’s rant that “unless you have been subjected to this violence, you can't begin to understand what this can do to a persons psyche “, let me enlighten you. I have been subjected to this kind of violence. I do know what I’m talking about. I was raped and abused by my uncle and my brother. And since I am an expert on the matter, let me tell you, if you were truly raped and abused as a child, you will do anything in your power to protect not only your children, BUT all children! You will not go out and wantonly destroy another child’s life like this.
Lucky Phala expresses his belief that she should be forgiven, as we all make mistakes. Making a mistake is forgetting to pack your child’s lunch, forgetting to put on some underwear, forgetting to shave your legs, a “mistake” is not when you repeatedly over a lengthy period rape your child.
Pume Magwaza brings religion into this, trying to excuse this monstrosity and others like her, that it’s because we are all born sinners and the rest of us were not exposed to these kinds of sin. Since I was exposed to the “sin” of being abused and raped as a child, that makes me the resident expert on this woopsie (sorry sin) and I have not turned to raping and abusing children now have I? He also states that “Some religions allow an old man to marry a 9 yo and have sex. That's disgusting but is legal.” So, because some religions allow this, it’s legal? We must excuse this kind of behaviour, because it’s allowed by religion?
And right here is the main reason I lost faith and left religion behind. For years I believed that there must be something wrong with me, since god clearly did not care enough about me to stop this violation of me. I tried to atone for the “sins” I clearly must have, but could never quite figure out what the hell I did so wrong to be punished as such. No preacher from any faith could really give me an answer why do god allow children to be abused. The closest I came was a few bible passages about forgiving the bastard who raped me, otherwise I will burn in hell and the song and dance about free will. After years of being a prisoner in the clutches of religion, telling me that I am wrong, really starting to read all those “inconvenient” passages in the bible that shows women aren’t really that important at all, fathers offering their daughters to be raped by a whole village/town/city, so long it’s not his male guest/s, I decided to cast the iron shackles of faith off me. And if I was abused as a child, because god (in all his love, mercy and wisdom) knew I was going to leave, and that pre-empted the whole argument by allowing me to be raped and abused, weren’t you able to foresee that this would be the action that will drive me from you?
