Sexual Violence in Congo

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

This link is to a NYT article. It’s very difficult and depressing to read, and written in a way that might fairly be called racist. I’m noting the article here because I think the victimized Congolese women deserve to have their stories told. Hopefully resources will be directed towards halting this horrific genocidal misogyny because of the spotlight with which the NYT’s attention has illuminated the issue. I just wish the NYT could have managed this without quoting a doctor calling the rapists “much more savage beasts” than “gorillas.”

    The Times article was so depressing to read I feel a sense of doom for us as a species. What also disturbed me was the feeling I had that maybe we don’t deserve to survive if this is going to be the way it is. Supreme Being where are you???? Or more to the point, What are WE doing to stop the belief that this is unvoidable or tolerable in any way? Thoughts and souls must reach for an end to it since it seems the cavalry isn’t coming. And the cavalry seems to just as bad when it DOES!
