Johannesburg - Gangs of South African men are raping lesbians in the belief it will "cure" the women's sexual orientation, an aid agency said on Friday.
Thirty one lesbians have been reported murdered in homophobic attacks since 1998, but support groups say the actual number is probably much higher because crimes on the basis of sexual orientation are not recognised in the South African criminal justice system, ActionAid said.
Of the 31 cases, only two cases were brought to South African courts and there has been only one conviction. South Africa has one of the world highest rates of rape but activists say very few cases end in conviction, and women's groups say police and the justice system have failed to tackle the problem. It said the police were particularly reluctant to investigate crimes against lesbians and said support for survivors was inadequate.
When the black South Africans especially the Zulu's started to "hunt" down illegal immigrants for their crimes, yes all illegals i admit the innocent and the guilty ones, from the raping of babies under 12 months of age to grannies of 90 years.

To think that to brutally rape someone would somehow correct their sexual orientation is not only insane but deeply and profoundly offensive...
