Rape in Kenya

From Keguo at Gukira (via Global Voices Online):
Faced with accusation, male privilege responds with aggression. Faced with evidence, male privilege responds with mitigating circumstances. Faced with conviction, male privilege revels in braggadocio. After all, strong men know how to control their women.

Histories of slavery, colonialism, urbanization, modernity, war, and nationalism are simultaneously histories of rape.
