I Hope They're Lying

I just got an email from

What follows is the first paragraph of that email:
"A woman is raped every 17 seconds in South Africa. Many of the victims of rape in South Africa are lesbians or women who "appear" gay. Some call it "corrective" rape - to turn lesbians straight - but that's not the whole story. These attacks are often a brutal punishment for not behaving like a "real woman" or daring to love who you choose."
I hope they're lying, because that is a terrifying statistic.
