Another average Jozi work day, another woman raped

I have no thoughts of significance today. Not even horror for the news of a medical student being raped at Baragwanath hospital. All I feel about it right now is sadness.

Especially when reading this quote:
Staff at the hospital said students usually drove the approximately one kilometre journey to the laboratory because of safety concerns.
She walked that 1 kilometre. She got raped.

What are we going to do about it?

This is kinda relevant, but it's men who get raped too.

All rape is wrong, yet how the FUCK(!!!) can the Constitutional Court say that a woman who is sodomised against her will is raped, but a man, done the same horrific thing, is not raped... and it's actually a lesser crime?

Justice is done even-handedly, or it is not Justice.
