LESBIANS in South Africa are being dragged off the street and raped to "correct" them, it has been claimed. ky News has found evidence of widespread abuse against the lesbian community, resulting in a new trend of so-called "corrective rape."

I thought it was wrong to criticize any non-western culture?
South Africa is much better off now than before.
Well, this story can’t be accurate. Such violent and abhorrent behavior couldn’t possibly be so prevalent in a country that was “created” by Nelson Mandela - the world’s greatest leader. Right?
“South Africa is much better off now than before.”
What does that mean?
Now the gov't of SA is Marxist. Scratch that, I meant racist-marxist. They are rapidly devolving into a pure 3rd world hellhole, where rape and murder is commonplace.
And to think that this is a country that once fielded its' own homegrown fighter plane and had a nuclear program.
I wonder if the more attractive ones would mind corrective licking?

Sarcasm ie, not being truthful, lampooning a situation.
When rape is the subject, there is no place for humorous remarks of any sort.
