Murder of South African Lesbians

Posted by Jack Stephens on July 18, 2007

Fellow Blog and the Bullet member, Yolanda, blogs about the recent rash of murders of lesbians in South Africa:

Like the United States, South Africa is a deeply misogynist, racist, and homophobic society, a consequence of its (our) legacy of white supremacy and apartheid. It has one of the highest per capita sexual violence rates in the world, and women who identify as lesbians or who are thought to be LGBT are routinely targeted for rape. Police are often unresponsive to this violence and insensitive to its victims. Perhaps not surprisingly, misogynist-homophobic violence often hits Black women and girls the hardest.
