People aren't vaccinating their children and another Bush is running for President, so let's gather 'round for yet another story that truly has no winners. A 17-year-old girl in South Africa poured battery acid on her boyfriend's penis after she discovered that he had filmed them having sex. Ah, young love.
The girl, whose name was not released to the press due to the fact that she's a minor, learned that Humphrey Khoza, age 25, secretly filmed them having sex after the video appeared on social media. On top of that, she also learned that Khoza was apparently not wearing a condom when they had sex. According to the Times Live (via Uproxx) Khoza admits to filming the encounter but denies releasing the video.
"We agreed to have sex, but she was not aware that I was filming the sex using my laptop computer. I did not intend to show anyone the video and I still don't know how it got onto social media," he said.
It's more than understandable that the girl would be upset about having an unauthorized sex tape out on the internet, but it goes without saying that pouring acid on somebody's penis ain't the way to handle it. For her part, the 17-year-old sounds rather unapologetic about the whole thing, in the way that teenagers are sometimes psychopaths:
"'I heard about the video from one of my classmates and I thought that they were joking, but then I saw the video myself and lost my mind.' [...] 'I had to do something to show him that I was angry and wanted to hurt him so that he can see that he messed with the wrong girl,' she said."
Well, mission certainly accomplished, girl.
Khoza's penis will never work again and he now has to use a tube to urinate, but he's just happy that the girl didn't kill him. Obviously Khoza didn't deserve to have acid thrown on his penis, but he is, objectively, a scumbag for filming their sexual activity. Still, he sounds remarkably upbeat considering the circumstances and will not be pressing charges against his ex-girlfriend.
"Even if I press charges it is useless because it won't bring back my manhood. Her being in jail will just ruin her future because she is still young and I do not have the energy to attend courts," said Khoza.
To be fair, his lack of legal action may also have something to do with South African child pornography laws in which the crime is described as: "any image or any description of a person, real or simulated, who is, or who is depicted or described as being, under the age of 18 years, engaged in sexual conduct." It seems likely that pressing charges would result in an investigation into his actions which I'm sure he's hoping to avoid.
I don't know guys, the flinging of acid at human beings is very, very bad and secretly filming a minor having sex is also very, very bad—both are also very, very illegal. One thing I do know for sure is that everyone involved needs an extensive lesson in better decision-making and restricted access to both battery acid and the internet.
