More from the homeland
Zuma’s rape trial is becoming the laughing stock of the century. Zuma, the former deputy president and former head of SA’s National AIDS council, a man who has publicly stated on many ocassions that south africans have a responsibility to use condoms, has undone 15 years of AIDS education in a single bound. Zuma has claimed he had sex with a known-HIV positive woman without a condom, because his work with the AIDS council educated him as to how low the risk of infection was. Also, he had a shower afterwards.
Is he retarded? Seriously, is he?
Also, he says she must have wanted to have sex with him because she wore a skirt when she visited, and she’d never done that before.
Retarded. It’s the only explanation.
One moment of actual levity in the trial was when Zuma took the stand. Kemp, Zuma’s defence lawyer, asked him, “Mr Zuma, can you tell us whether you are circumcised or not?”
“I am circumcised,” Zuma replied.
“Are you happy with that?” Van der Merwe (the Judge) asked De Beer (the lead prosecutor).
“Well, my lord,” she said, “I certainly don’t want to make an in loco examination.”
In other news from the mother country, government is restricting sales of pornographic material to adult shops only. This in itself is not too bad. What’s bizarre is the intended restriction of online sales too. And they’re not just talking porn, they’re also talking sex toys and ‘performance enhancing’ pills, the majority of which are obtained over the internet. Their claim is that they are doing it for the children, but surely internet sales have nothing to do with that? I mean, if a child is buying dildos online, (a) they are doing it on their parents’ internet account without any kind of parental supervision and (b) are using their parents’ credit cards to do it. How is this not the parents’ fault? And must legitimate consumers and the industry be punished because people can’t control their kids? And seriously, what parent doesn’t notice a 10-inch black rubber cock arriving in the mail?
Stupidity abounding yet again.
