  • Ensure that child rapists are deemed paedophiles and shut away forever. What can be worse than this?
  • Take note of public personalities when they make statements like “boys will be boys”… when 2 girls are raped and hung from a tree. Or when a public personality immediately drubs a rape victim as a prostitute…. so prostitutes cannot be raped is it??
