Rape is not about sex. It is about power and control.

No. They should be hanged by the neck until dead.

For some people, rape may be about power and control. But I find such language to be inadequate in explaining the many different realities of rape.

Besides all the reasons listed above, castration would be 100% effective at preventing them from doing harm to a child again! I dont have to write out all the different ways someone could 'sexually violate' even if they had been castrated!

Sadly, it wouldn't. People molest and penetrate children and others with inanimate objects to include broomsticks and other items

Jesus. How about we start prosecuting them at all. Why go there? And if they penetrate with foreign objects, as with Brock Turner, what do we do we do then? Separate them from foreign objects?

Weird.

In the US is 8% of rape preports are determined to be false after investigation according to the FBI, however this does not include those who have been wrongly convicted. It's even higher in some other western countries, with one in tem rape allegations being proved false, hopwever again this might not be the fully story. Indeed it was recently found that in England & Wales, the prosecution wasn't even giving the defence evidence that could have been used to clear defendents names, just how disgusting is that, and as a result innocent people went to jail.

I am sorry but innocent people going to prison is never right and rape must be proved beyond any reasonable doubt and based on all the available evidene, like any other crime. As accusations and injustices are unaccptable as is the stigma involved, and wronfully sending people to prison leaved a lasting scar on peoples lives.

One false accusation is one too many and the idea of castrating people on this basis is beyond belief.

It is about a very specific kind of power and control. Sexual power and control. So.
