Quote of the Day

"A G-string takes away a woman's dignity. If a man sees a woman in a G-string, he deserves to rape her"

- Euginia Yantcho, supporter of Jacob Zuma protesting outside the courthouse by burning G-strings. She acknowledged that Zuma's accuser was not wearing a G-string when she was allegedly raped by Zuma, but said that she was taking "a moral stance against women who laid a charge of rape 'too easily'". Yantcho was also one of the protestors who waved posters on March 7 with the woman's name and picture on them, and later burned them while she sang "Burn the bitch".
