This looks pretty close to the Shariah Law.

It's my understanding that in German law the penalty for rape is castration. His teenage daughter--- statutory rape? I think that would be for a jury to decide. I cannot condone his behavior, but I can very much understand his intention to defend his daughter. I only wish he had gone about things in a different way- namely, taking that girl by the hand and showing her another picture of a 57yr old chasing skirts. Knowledge is her best self defense far beyond even his ability to protect his daughter.

Fathers need to take seriously the duty of teaching their daughters how to defend themselves psychologically and physically. If he had taught her, I seriously doubt this young girl would have confused womanhood as seeking out another brand of father figure to protect her. The psychological damage is within her and neither her father nor her 57yr old boyfriend can see her as anything more than an ornament to covet or defend. She cannot see her own worth or dignity through the beams in the eyes of men. It's a longstanding cultural problem and any attempt to discuss it is met by men claiming themselves victims of rabid feminazi's.

This isn't statutory rape. The age of consent in Germany is 14. Hell, I'm typing this response from Colorado where this would also be perfectly legal.

edit: And your understanding of German law is wrong. They don't castrate people in Germany (not since the Nazis). Chemical castration is used in Germany for certain sex offenders - but ONLY if they agree to undergo it (volunteer).

I don't have a daughter yet (she's due in march ) but I do know this from raising a boy who will be 7 next week. Telling a child what they have to do is hard to do. I can't imagine telling a grown adult what they have to do, my child or not.
I agree. If it was consensual, he had no right. But even if it wasn't consensual, he still had no right. I don't believe violence really serves any purpose. My husband on the other hand, has said that if we have a daughter (whenever our time comes), he will be purchasing a shotgun. So I can see both sides of it, although I think cutting off a guy's balls is just a tad extreme. No, he should not be charged with attempted murder, either, I doubt you could bleed to death from castration.

Congrats, Memphis!

And chemical castration is NOT the same as physically castrating someone without anaesthesia. It's not even a painful punishment, it's just designed to keep them from ever having sex again and thus not molesting anyone again. It's actually kind of a stupid punishment, if you think about it.

I thank you for the correction. The age of consent is a very difficult thing to nail down in teen years because it cannot take into account their individual development to make that educated choice of their own free will. Child emancipation laws are always on a case by case basis. Reality: predators lure children with candy. Young girls, even though the age of consent may be established rigidly on the books, are reliably not able to live up to their responsibility to themselves. Western culture has given them a handicap. In a way it's like chinese foot binding their women to live down to their expectations of beauty and worth.

These situations cannot be corrected by law if the law treats children as miniature adults, or awkward teen age years as either child status or adult status. The parents need to be held accountable, and if their children are out of control and they're requesting assistance from the community/ authorities to get control of them, I think that's responsible behavior. Letting them run amok claiming it's a free country, "what can I do?", or "boys will be boys" is the negation of responsibility. These boys running in gangs-- where are their parents? Should we not treat this as a case of child abandonment? Food for thought.

He should serve the same amount of time as Lorena Bobbit, if sharia law includes castration after being convicted of rape then I'm all for it. Obviously this wasn't rape so it was a little extreme, get it little hahahahahahhahah. I guess he won't be complaining about TSA patdowns. BUhahaahahahahahahahahahahahhahhahaaahahahah.

Kudos to that guy! They should give him an award instead of charging him. The age spread in that case should be evidence enough. 40 years?? I'd willingly go to jail as a father for the same kind of justice... Although as a father I'd try my darndest to prevent that situation in the first place..
