Teacher Arrested for Raping 11 Pupils

November 17, 2011.

Johannesburg - A high school teacher has been arrested for raping 11 pupils in Daveyton, Ekurhuleni, police said on Thursday.

Constable Timothy Masilela said the 46-year-old teacher was arrested on Wednesday afternoon.

He said pupils were being taught about abuse, including sexual abuse, when one of them told the principal that she had been raped by a teacher.

Masilela said more pupils then approached the principal and a case was opened against the teacher.

The Grade 11 teacher would allegedly tell students to stay behind after class so he could help them with their homework.

Masilela said that in some of the cases there were witnesses.

The teacher was expected to appear in the Benoni Magistrate's Court on Thursday.  (SAPA)

Comment: Just another day in sex-abuse-hell by the delusional rainbow.

I do not mean to make light of what happened to these pupils.  The teacher (umm 'educator') should be sent away for a very long time and the students will need support and counseling for even longer.

Over the years I have wondered why we are such a violent country.  Women and girls bear a disproportionate amount of violent abuse as this case illustrates.

Add to that waves of violence against lesbians (corrective rape) and the picture is seriously messed up.

A few years ago my mind may have started to wonder about the connection between misogynist violence and racism.

I am not saying that there is no link because apartheid used violence against women as a tactic of control.

But what then makes us so violent when white folks are not even present?  Are we really just 'victims' of the creation of whiteness?

Hell no is my thinking.  The deviance that describes our violent content is more than that.

Deep beneath the modern era of racist violence lies patriarchal ordering that reduces women and girls to things in the imagination of men.

The violence we are witnessing is more complex than the sh*t white folks (who are not exempt from misogynist violence) created.

It is way deeper than that - and my critique includes those piously-bearded-shortened-pants f*cks who think God ordained them into forever sanctity to force or intimidate Muslim women into patriarchal 'submission'.

And there you were thinking I was only talking about a speared brother and his kraal of belongings, huh?

Patriarchy is a male disease and it is found across the penis divides.  Mine included.

Onward! to the true liberation of all women.
