Women Raping Men For More Than Just Sex
The faces of these serial rapists may not be what you expect. In Zimbabwe, police charged three women with 17 counts of aggravated indecent assault. Looking for a lead on the string of sexual attacks on male hitchhikers, the Zimbabwe police got their lucky break when the assailant’s car was involved in an accident. Upon inspecting the damage, 33 condoms containing semen were discovered.
“17 men came and positively identified the women as having raped them”
The 17 counts were for the 17 men who had positively identified the women as the ones responsible for the sexual assaults from 2010 to 2011.
“17 men came and positively identified the women as having raped them,” said a police official, who refused to be identified. “Most of the men said the women would offer a drink either laced with something to tranquilize them or were forced at gunpoint.”
All in their mid-20’s, the women were arrested while the police continue to appeal to any other victims that may also be able to positively identify the trio.
“We might have had more victims come identify these women,” said the police source.
The prosecution identified the suspects as Rosemary Chakwizira, 24, Sophie Nhokwara, 26, and her sister, Netsai Nhokwara, 24.
In attempt to make any sense of this whatsoever, Watch Ruparanganda, a professor of sociology at the University of Zimbabwe said: “Some sections of the society use these [sic0] sperm for ritual purposes. The thinking is that it can be used for regeneration of life since they are sources of life (biologically). Some people think that they can have their bad luck gone by using semen. I am sure that explains all this we have been witnessing (men being forced).”
The question stemming from this report is “Can a man be raped?” This heated discussion is sparking all sorts of responses from men and women, with no real consensus.
When a group of men were surveyed, said one, “Unless you are a straight man with dudes forcing sex on you, you can’t be raped”. “You can’t rape the willing,” said another. More than a couple said they couldn’t comment because they were busy booking a ticket to Africa.
The bottom line is- if you force someone to have sex against their will, it’s rape, period. These women need a slap of justice and then desperately need to be educated. I don’t care about the reason why they felt like they needed to “take these men;” don’t they have Craigslist in Zimbabwe?
