Corrective Rape

Most South Africans have heard of corrective rape, where lesbian women are raped by men who want to 'correct' their seemingly 'abnormal' lesbian behaviour. This is a widespread practice all over South Africa, and for the women being raped, few have seen their rapist prosecuted. But what about those who want to 'correct' lesbian women, but don't rape them? There are so many people who believe that gay and lesbian individuals should not be. That they are evil, promiscuous, unnatural beings. How do we start to change the minds of people who have such ingrained thinking?
