On a more serious note

I've seen a couple of discussions recently of violence against women and attitudes towards it.  Someone (and I can't find the original comment) asked if things were so bad that women ought to be grateful when they _aren't_ raped.

And here's a report from South Africa, in which it seems that 25% of men admit to having raped someone.

That's 1 in 4 people _admitting_ to rape.

And if the rapist is over 25 then there's a 25% chance they have HIV.

I'm feeling distinctly shocked.
