Due to the demands by the South African Public in general for the Death Penalty to be brought back, I got to thinking more about the number of Rapes in South Africa.
They are high and the figures are disgusting but there will always be the very few ladies quite happy to jump on that band wagon. Take the latest story of the drunken girl having sex with her boyfriend whilst his friends ‘recorded it all’. It doesn’t matter how drunk you are – surely you would shout out/yell for help if you were being assaulted in any way? I was not there and therefore cannot judge but it got me thinking more about promiscuity in our society in general.
We hear stories all the time of ladies who after sleeping with a man (whether they were intoxicated or seduced or promised expensive gifts) decide to have a change in moral compass.
Rather than just dealing with the fact that they just had sex with someone who they are not in a relationship with (and the possible rejection thereafter), they would rather ‘Cry Wolf’ than face the embarrassment of ‘everyone knowing’ what they had done. In our society as it stands, everyone is so angry about the lack of action by Government bodies that are supposed to be there to protect us, the man that previously had been given the absolute go ahead by this same woman – will end up being dealt with ‘mob style’ or worse – necklaced!
In some cases, boys who have been sleeping with their girlfriends for months now face charges of rape because the girl’s parents find out and Shout Rape! The girl is too embarrassed to admit anything and the boy gets charged.
The time has come for all ladies to understand that in order for our ‘Stop Rape Now’ initiative that has been launched in South Africa to work - there has to be no more cries of wolf. If you did the deed willingly – deal with it. Don’t you dare decide afterwards that you feel ‘dirty’ or ‘ashamed’ and convince yourself and others that you were actually raped. You take away the limited resources that could have been used to help someone else who really was raped! And what happens to the guy you willingly slept with? – He sits in a prison enduring all sorts of atrocities because you could not deal with your own guilt.
If on the other hand, you started off willing and had a change of heart before the deed – Yes – this would be construed as rape. And believe me the South African public are behind you all the way to ensure that the guilty person goes to jail.
No is No, even Yes which becomes No is No. Only Yes Yes should never be seen later as a No!
Let the War on Rape begin........but beware folks.... as promiscuity now opens a brand new door.
