I must have said it before, I will say it again: I cannot help be moved by older LGBT people. I mean, these men and women struggled with risking to be put in jail just for what they are. And still had time to find the love of their life.
Any of my lesbian friends: please find and date this girl.
This is Millicent Gaika. She is a 30-year-old South African woman who was tied up, beaten, strangled, tortured and raped for five hours.
Why was she battered and rape? She is victim of a practice called corrective rape, a term that describes the process of men raping women who claim to be lesbians until they have been turned straight. Such a practice is particularly popular in South Africa, and of course, homosexuality cannot be ‘cured,’ and Millicent is not the first women who was victimized. The most vicious form of torture a woman can experience in South Africa for being a lesbian is having her genitals mutliated by sharp objects. 24 out of 25 men who are accused of doing such crimes walk free. More than 500 corrective rapes are reported each year, and more than 30 South African lesbians have been murdered because of their sexuality over the past decade.
There is a petition that is aiming to expose these crimes in South Africa. The mission is to get police to be more responsive to the corrective rapes and charge reasonable fines to the men performing these rapes. Sign the petition here. It only takes a name and an address. That’s all. Please sign it.
And I’m not usually the person to say it, but please reblog this. Please get the message out there that this is happening out there in the world. Please.
What the fuck. Seriously, what the fuck.
I don’t usually post this sort of things here, but I was completely unaware of that practice and maybe you are too. Spread the word.
YES, MY DUCKIES.
This is a video spam of lesbian related ads. And before we start, I know much more ads that are lesbian related, but I’m only posting the ones that are not offensive or clearly made by and for men (sexploitation much?). So here we go.
And remember, gay marriages are just like yours. Only gayer.
(and that’s true: first time I see a lesbian related ads not “made by and for men”)
