Gang Rape as a Form of Male Bonding

Forget athletics, endurance tests, etc…

One in four South African men questioned in a survey said they had raped someone, and nearly half of them admitted more than one attack.

The study, by the country’s Medical Research Council, also found three out of four who admitted rape had attacked for the first time during their teens.

It said practices such as gang rape were common because they were considered a form of male bonding.

Is it any wonder I expected a more forceful defense of women’s rights in President Obama’s Cairo speech – granted it was delivered to the Mideast, but the audience was intended to be global.
