A 13-year-old lesbian has become the latest victim of "corrective rape" in South Africa, prompting activists to call for direct retaliatory action.
Campaigners say so-called corrective rape, in which men rape lesbians to "cure" them of their sexual orientation, is on the increase in South Africa. Thirty-one lesbians have been killed because of their sexuality in the past decade, campaigners say, and more than 10 lesbians a week are raped or gang raped in Cape Town alone.
Last month, a 24-year-old woman who belonged to a gay and lesbian rights group was stoned to death after an apparent gang rape.

I am positive that if this had been Muslims stone woman for being a lesbian, or Muslim country and the death penalty for homosexuality there would have been serious replies.
Or is it because it is a female issue, who are repressed in much of the world,

Religion needs to be correctively raped right out of existence.
That being said, 31 lesbians killed in 10 years comes out to 3.1 dead lesbos per year.
Not exactly an epidemic.
