  • new sexual offenses bil in SA

    Read up about it here:

    The bit that caught my attention was this:
    South Africa has one of the highest incidences of sexual abuse in the world. According to police statistics, 52,107 rapes and attempted rapes were reported in 2002, while a 1999 health department study found that 7 percent of women aged between 15 and 49 had been raped or coerced into having sex against their will.
    Taken this into consideration - who remembers that tv advert that Charlize Theron did? The "Have you ever raped a woman" one. I remember hearing that it got yanked because some guy complained. Did it bother any of you guys?
    With such staggering rape statistics, I think it's great to up people's awareness, even if it does leave ten or twenty people feeling uncomfortable.
