Sign the petition to speak out against “corrective rape”!

7 Jan

For those of you who don’t know, “corrective rape” is a term used to describe when a heterosexual male rapes a lesbian to “cure” her of her homosexuality. This is UNTHINKABLE! Many women are beaten and/or murdered, get STDs such as AIDS/HIV, or commit suicide as a result. This has become particularly prevalent in South Africa and other nations, but it’s a global problem.

What can you do to help? Sign a petition to eliminate this inhumane  “treatment”! This petition is requesting that South Africa declare “corrective rape” a hate crime and enforce laws to punish those who commit it:
