Today’s Gleaner Cartoon
the laughing kid says it all, people just don’t expect in Jamaica to hear of a man being raped by a woman, probably a man though. There is a story of a taxi driver in Central Jamaica now known as “Roundhole” who was attacked at home with his wife present several years ago by gunmen it is said that he was almost sodomised by two of the men who tried but failed. He tried reporting the matter to the police who laughed at him in disbelief as he was crying and shamed by the incident, if there is any truth to it I am not sure but the other taxi drivers teased him mercilessly whenever he came on the streets, it took him a while to restart his taxi service, even today as he traverse the routes he services you can still hear the occasional taunt “Roundhole” hurled at him.
Well some humour for a serious subject which I will follow up on soon, expert opinios welcomed.
