    Default South African Women Soccer Players Expose The Country’s Corrective Rape Epidemic

    ESPN recently re-aired the E:60 episode featuring the segment on the South Africa’s shameful exercise of corrective rape. In this heart-wrenching episode, show host Jeremy Schaap interviewed South African women soccer players
    about the heinous practice aimed to punish a lesbian and “correct” her sexuality. Many of South Africa’s women soccer players are openly gay despite the country’s lax attitude toward gay-fueled crimes and few legal protections afforded its victims.

    These brave women fought back tears at times as they retold their personal corrective rape experiences as well as the stories of those who didn’t live to tell their own.

    Oh lord.

    This is sad indeed and for it to happen in a country like South Africa makes it even more pathetic.

    South Africa has come a long way but it's sad to see something of this nature happen. These women made their choice and no one should have to hurt them for the choices they made. Its sad indeed.
