Apart from the World Cup (which I believe you’re all following willfully or not), there’s another piece of news that came out of South Africa this past day. That news would be the invention of a new controversial product called the Anti-Rape Female Condom brought to you by the good folks over at Rape-aXe.
I can just see it now:
[A rape case in court, the rape victim takes the stand for cross-examination]
Victim: “I was raped.”
Defense lawyer: “Well…were you wearing spikes inside your vagina?”
Defense lawyer: “Yes… clearly if you weren’t wearing your spikes you must have wanted it.”
And so I ask myself: firstly, how is this thing “Anti-rape” if you have to be raped for it to work?
Secondly, Why is it AGAIN the victim’s responsibility to prevent rape rather than society’s?!
Over to you esteemed DR readers, what are your thoughts on the condom with teeth?
