This is a quote from a self professed ‘counsellor’ George Lutterodt from Ghana on a television show yesterday. (The quote is around the 2:13 mark in the video) He goes on to say that rape victims enjoy being raped regardless of their unwillingness in beginning of an act of rape. Something that any real professional counsellor and expert will discredit. This is highly irresponsible and a very dangerous rhetoric that fuels sexual violence and rape culture. He claims he has spoken to ‘many rape victims’ and his assertions are based on that. Well, Lutterot, tell me how much a 6 year girl enjoys the act of being raped? Or how a 9 years boy enjoys being sexually assaulted? Or how a 21 year old enjoys being held down against her will and raped by a group of guys? Or how a 70 year old woman enjoys being raped? These are just some of the real cases of actual rape victims. This man Lutterot is a rape apologist simple. One of the worse I have seen because he masquerades with the title of ‘counsellor’ to essentially justify and normalise rape culture with a reprehensible statement that ‘all victims of rape enjoy the act’. This perpetuates victim blaming and trivialises what rape survivors go through. His comments are deplorable, especially at a time in Ghana, and beyond when so many people are advocating for victims of rape and sexual assault in their fight for justice. Over 10,000 people have signed and continue to sign the petition to the President of Ghana to abolish fees medical examination for victims. PS. I don’t know who the other gentleman in the video is, but I applaud him for countering the assertions made by that man. Any media organisation that continues to give this man a platform to spew such misinformation is culpable. The worst thing is that he is not even a registered counsellor yet these media organisation in Ghana continue to give him a platform. This has to stop. Video Source: Adomonline
