The University of South Africa’s Criminology and Security Sciences Study guide (2012) – refers to a new legislation that will change how rape cases are prosecuted in South Africa. Through changes to the rape laws, the following factors will help prevent secondary victimization within rape cases:
1. The rape victim’s sexual history may no longer be taken into account, which will prevent the victim from being seen in a prejudiced light.
2. The fact that the victim had a promiscuous sexual history does not mean that the perpetrator is entitles to rape her.
3. An apparent lack of physical injury may no longer be used as an excuse for the offender or as a sign that the victim was not in fact injured (not fighting might have saved her life).
4. The fact that there was a relationship between the rapist and the victim does not excuse the rape or imply that she consented to the act.
5. The bill also counteracts duplication and delays, since victims will not have to repeat their testimony (secondary victimization).
6. The bill seeks to expediate the finalization of serious criminal cases, especially those of a violent nature, to punish the perpetrator of serious offenses appropriately and to prevent the secondary victimization of complainants.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing rape to exist in this world due to the value that has been given to sex and pictures.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to give value to sex and masturbation to such an extent that I will sometimes be overwhelmed by the energy until it directs me into action, just like the energy of a rapist that is moved and possessed by energy.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing the justification of ‘but sex and masturbation is nothing like raping someone’ to exist within my mind, through which I will secretly continue fantasizing over pictures and other beings, hoping to have sexual relations with them and with the people in porn movies until the entity I create possesses me and directs me.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing the existence of porn movies, due to my inability to effectively express myself here in my physical body with another physical body, without requiring stimulus and the hidden meanings within my secret mind.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to turn sex into something disgusting based on dominance and the energy of fear, repulsion, erotica, arousal, through which I have tacitly agreed to the existence of the energy of the rapist within my mind and within society.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to fear sexually as the expression of myself, to such an extent that I have to turn sex into a perversion, through which I have agreed to all the countless forms of sexual abuse that is happening in the world.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing the idea that if a woman was dressed provocatively, she deserved to be raped.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing any pictures and ideas in my mind linked to rape, which causes and has caused me to get sexually aroused.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to wait for governments to ‘do something about rape’ instead of me taking direct self-responsibility for rape in this world as parts of it exists within me as my mind, as pictures linked to desires.
I commit myself to stopping any and all forms of sexual abuse within myself towards myself and towards another
I commit myself to stopping the apparent need for governments to stop abuse in my world, by observing myself within who I have become to see how I am living out the designs of abuse within myself.
I commit myself to stopping sexual fantasies and secret mind desires – and to learn to effectively direct myself here in my physical body
I commit myself to self-honest self-expression within sex and to stop any form of sexual abuse within my relationship/agreement.
I commit myself to develop effective communication within myself about what I am experiencing and to direct my experiences in the breath, through self-honesty and common sense, to stop the energy entity build ups, which lead to eventual abuse in my life and this world, as what others will also come to accept as ‘sex’.
I commit myself to stop any and all forms of sexual abuse through the media and the acceptance of sexuality as it currently exists today.
I commit myself in stopping patterns of sexuality in which I exist that are not what is best for all.
