Molested, were you raped?
If you've not been raped, you have no idea.
What's the difference between your trivializing it, and others?
I'm a bit lost here, where did the OP trivialize anything? Because the question was asked about the two extremes that are the majority of responses to any sex offense? Isn't your response one of the responses the OP was asking about?
The question I've got is "why is it that someone who doesn't agree with hanging anyone who's been charged with a sex offense is somehow deemed a bad person or uncaring?"

I would say that it is indeed an illustration of going to the extreme

Anything less than a demand for summary execution is apparently considered "trivializing", which is precisely the problem the OP was describing.

Yes, this was exactly my point. If you don't share their angry villager, reactionary point of view, you are accused of being sympathetic towards such acts yourself. Yet on the other hand, you have others who make jokes.

The same person in fact might even have both responses, for example if it's a child the angry villager response, but if it's a prisoner who is being raped they will laugh and make jokes about it.

The only person who should be responsible for rape is the rapist... if they penetrated someone who did not give consent or was not capable of giving consent -- then they should consider that.

This thread is disgusting. It seeks to minimize and trivialize an abhorrent act. The OP was molested. Let's see how he'd feel if he was brutally raped in a dark alley...with resultant tears and trauma, needing surgery to put him back together again.
Would he still be whining about victims being brainwashed and they should just get over it? I doubt it.
