Rape. Statistics

 

Rape is a traumatic experience that often results in embarrassment and left with a self-judgmental feeling. This experience leaves a victim feeling impure and dirty. Their body does not feel like it is their own.

 

Rape is an inexcusable act that needs to be stopped. As a group we need to stand together and be the voice of reason. Use the weapon that was not stripped from you. Stand up and make a difference, rape victims know how the experience feels. We need to stand together to ensure that no one else has to endure that pain.

 

It’s hard to know what to do, how to feel, or what your options are after a sexual assault. Please know that you’re not alone.

 

Here are three tips about what to do if you or anyone you know has been raped:

  1. Find a safe environment, away from the attacker. Ask a trusted friend to stay with you.
  2. Remember that what happened was NOT your fault.
  3. Ask the hospital to conduct a rape kit exam to preserve forensic evidence.

 

You may not have safety had control over the situation but you have control over what you can do thereafter.

 

Your rape does not define you.

 

You are a beautiful individual and being a victim of rape does not make you any less beautiful.

 

Do not question your life choices, you were and are not at fault. Being a rape victim was not because of the clothes you were wearing, it was not because of the underwear you were wearing that made your confidence level rise. It was not because you decided to go out and have a good eveing.

 

Rape is an act that should not be tolerated.

 

At Men Against Rape we stand up against sexual assaults, we are against these individuals being a part of society and are determined to lower the rape statistics on South Africa and the world alike.

Why do to us what you wouldn’t want to be done to you?

 

 

Ask a man what his greatest fear is about serving jail time, and he will almost inevitably say that he fears being raped. Men fear serving a jail sentence for the same issue that women have even in their own homes.

 

Real Men Don’t Rape!

 

South Africa has one of the highest incidences of rape in the world, IN THE WORLD.

 

Did you know that twelve times more women are raped and murdered in South Africa than in the United States?

 

How would you feel having over 20 individuals take advantage of your body and use it at their leisure to satisfy their sexual desires?

 

Extreme violence is a major factor associated with rape. Victims are exposed to ritual humiliation, injuries such as mutilation and many result in death.

 

Men Against Rape stands against these dehumanizing events.

 

If men are afraid to be raped then why do we do it to our women?

 

Are they not human too?

 

When we educate our youth about the rights and the wrongs in society we set a stable, healthy foundation to nourish their seeds to grow.

 

Lesson One: NO MEANS NO!

 

If you have been in a situation where your NO! was not heard please don’t keep quiet. We are here to listen and provide you with the relevant help to get you back on your feet and bring back your smile.

On Saturday night a young girl (from Durban, Wentworth) was taken by 5 men, who according to hospital and police reports, gang raped her before dumping her.

Unable to remember the events of the evening, tests later confirmed the repeat rapes along with traces of Rohypnol in her blood, with Progesterex, which is essentially a small sterilization pill. The drug now being used by rapists at parties to rape and sterilize their victims.

Progesterex is available to vets to sterilize large animals. Rumour has it that Progesterex is being used together with Rohypnol, the date rape drug. As with Rohypnol, all they have to do is drop it into the girls drink. The girl can’t remember a thing the next morning, of all that had taken place the night before. Progesterex, which dissolves in drinks just as easily, is such that the victim doesn’t conceive from the rape and the rapist needn’t worry about having a paternity test identifying him months later.

The drugs effects are not temporary- They are permanent!

Progesterex was designed to sterilize horses… Any female who takes it will never be able to conceive. They can get this drug from anyone who is in vet school or any university. It’s that easy, and Progesterex is about to break out big everywhere. Believe it or not, there are even sites on the Internet telling people how to use it.

Please COPY this to everyone you know, especially girls. Be careful when you’re out, and don’t leave your drink unattended. Please make the effort to pass this onto all you now…

Guys, please inform all your female friends and relatives.

Rape statistics have recently showed that over 40% of all the rapes in South Africa are committed against children. These stats came direct from the Minister of Police, Bheki Cele and they have left the nation feeling even more worried and unsafe.

In a parliamentary reply to a question from the DA, Cele revealed various numbers for child murders and child rapes over the last three financial years.

Of the 124 526 total rape cases reported in the last 3 financial years, children were the victims of a sickening 41% of these cases.

In the same time period, 2 600 children were also murdered. That amounts to 5% of the total murder numbers across the country.

“This also means that at least 46 children are raped every day and at least two children are murdered every single day in South Africa. Only 21% of child rapes cases and only one in three murder cases resulted in successful convictions,” said Zakhele Mbhele, DA Shadow Minister of Police.

The numbers become even more frightening when you realise that the number of child rapes has continually increased over the years.

In 2014/15, there were 15 520 child rapes reported. Only 1799 ended up in successful convictions. In 2015/16, 16 389 were reported. Just 2 488 were convicted.

In 2016/17, the numbers rose even further to 19 071. Thankfully, there was a small improvement in convictions; 6 366 were convicted.

“The horrific brutality with which these children were murdered is also frightening. Weapons used, include firearms, axes, spades, pangas, hammers, belts and poison– many of these children were practically butchered to death,” Mbhele said.

“Something is seriously amiss and the Minister of Police, Bheki Cele, must take a firm stand against these senseless losses of life and the brutal murders of our children.”

While the overall rape crisis in South Africa has long been well documented, it seems that South Africans had no idea that the problem was so severe amongst children.

It seems evident that we as a society are still not doing enough to protect our children.
