And here we go again. Yes, I have. By 3 different men (4 depending on who you ask). I have a clue.

Rape IS a violent beating.
Quote:
It's a painful, demoralizing, terrifying assault that can kill people, especially young children, and it's done with the sadistic intent to cause pain and harm. It's a declaration of war and it's used as a war tactic to beat people down.
You also quoted me but somehow missed the part where I said it was "certainly terrible". Why do you folks do this? What is the payoff for you?

Quote:
Castration is just another form of rape, so tit for tat, yes rapists should be castrated.
Castration is literally NOT a form of rape. It's not. Goose/gander, tit-for-tat would be to rape the rapist.

Quote:
If somebody raped me I'd want to be the person manipulating the knife that castrated him. At least I'd be efficient, quick and clean about it as a mercy. My mother always used to say the castration of rapists should be done slowly in filthy, deplorable conditions with a bacteria infested, rusty, jagged edged tin can lid.
IF somebody raped you? So you've never been raped but want to shut me down as someone who has never been raped and don't know what I'm talking about? GTFOH LOL.

It happens a lot more than you think, especially on college campuses. They may not always go to jail but the stench sticks with them.

I agree with you. I think there is a lot of hype and hysteria surrounding heterosexual rape.

Rape happens waaaaaaaay more often than many think. If we castrated all the men who had sexual intercourse with an unwilling partner we'd have serious population issues.

That myth has been debunked. Rape is, first and foremost, about sex.

About rape in general. A lot of falsehoods and ideology at work.

FTR, no one controls anyone. Even with a gun to your head, you still have a free will.
Even with a gun to your head? Wut???

Should thieves have their hands chopped off?

And do you think "reasonable doubt" is sufficient for something so drastic?

By the way, you missed your chance to make the poll more interesting by dividing it by the gender of the voters.

People are so rabid about rape, to the point that some think it's the worst thing that could happen to a woman. Like death would be a better fate. In.sane.

A rapist can still sexually violate a person by using his hands or an object.
