"CORRECTIVE RAPE"-kill us before we die...


Corrective Rape…
Corrective and rape, when I read this for the first time I thought it is just another stupid oxymoron, but no it isn’t, to my shock and dismay this term goes with its literal meaning…
Corrective rape' is based on the outrageous and utterly false notion that a lesbian woman can be raped to 'make her straight', isn’t it devastating…
Corrective rape is a criminal practice, whereby men rape lesbian women, purportedly as a means of "curing" the woman of her sexual orientation.(Source:wikipedia)
There can never be a cause or justification to it, and motive is irrelevant in heinous crimes like 'corrective rape.'
This is just another extreme chapter of the male psychology where being dominant is the only thing they feel makes them superior.
Once a victim told police that throughout the assault, her attacker repeatedly said, "You think you're a man, but I'm going to show you you're a woman." The victim was tied up, beaten, strangled, tortured and raped for five hours by a man as he screamed that he would "cure" Millicent of her lesbianism.

Why can’t we just live the way we are and want, why would some else bother to make us what he feels is right, why would some else has the right to kill us before we die…

  1. good post...
    Women the world over are still regarded as passive or weak or sexual objects. There is still a long way to go to attain gender parity. Women continue to fight for respect, justice, and equality. women has always been at the receiving end of this male dominated world ..agony and ecstasy of being a woman..

  5. I don't know if there's something inherent in us men that allows us to behave like monsters under the guise of virtue or faith or god knows what, but this is further proof that we are not nearly as civilized as we believe ourselves to be.

  6. Oh my, i didnt know this. its truly tragic. Although my personal feeling abt this is that we shouldnt promote homosexuals or make it legal as it has bin done in many countries. Basically its against nature, but a person cant control his hearty desires, may be if it wasnt promoted so much this corrective rape thing wudnt hv made it to wikipedia. but either way, its inhuman, and surely every person has the rite to live life da way they want. poor girls who had to go thru this torture

  8. Rape is something so horrible that even is if the victim is spared her life, she would be a walking corpse.
    The only way to punish a rapist is to castrate him. Killing him or sentencing him to LI is no use. In some cases 'An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth' prove true.

  14. Omg! I didn't know about this. Its so gross! How low can men fall!
    Our legal force has to be really strong...so many rape culprits get away easily with a crime for which they should be stoned to death! Add to it corrective rape!!

    You've summed it really well.'Why would some else bother to make us what he feels is right, why would some else has the right to kill us before we die…'

  19. I'm shocked to have read this post...its just so cruel how can such men be so numb to emotions of the women. The world has advanced so much we say but all these actions just show how obsolete and backward a person's thinking can be! Its such a heinous crime yet there are several places in the world where it is encouraged...


    A very good write up...but I really wish we can take it to another level and help such women !

    Take Care.

  20. This is sick. Changing someone's sexual orientation is impossible so how come there is a cure for it. Raping to cure lesbianism. Huh!

  21. I don't understand why there are not more studies done on this subject in the US. I only see studies in South Africa although it happens all over the world.
