• Basic justice needed.

    When someone commits rape they've totally ruined someone else's life. Their victim will never recover from the trauma, and the punishment they receive should accurately fit the crime. The criminal has given up his human rights by totally disregarding the human rights of others. I actually think rapists should be executed. But castration is second best - at least that way they'll never be able to have children and inflict themselves on another generation.
    Rape is the worst of all crimes; worse than murder in my opinion, and at the moment the law's response is pitiful. No mercy for those who show us none!

  • Rapists shouldnt reproduce

    When castrating these criminals you make sure that these kind of sick people wont reproduce. They shouldnt be allowded to ever have children. When eliminating their chance of reproducing you are lowering the chances that more rapists are being created. Or you could give them the choice, castration or death penalty

  • Safer to stop them

    A primitive punishment for a primitive crime. Obviously false convictions would be a huge concern, but perhaps that might encourage the courts to take rape a little more seriously. Male rapists would never be able to repeat their crime, and hopefully seeing as they have no dangling baguette women or men, depending on preference, will take the hint and stay away. It's literally the safest option for any future and past victims. Don't forget these could be men, women and children. I'd rather have one man castrated to save them than let the guy rot in prison for three years and learn nothing. Plus, male rapists know the punishment. If they rape knowing they could be castrated then they're practically asking for it.

  • Rapists should be castrated

    When someone attacks another person, and they use a weapon, that weapon is taken away. The weapon rapists use is their penis, and castration could be a major deterrent to several rapists. You wouldn't let a convicted murderer keep his weapon, you shouldn't let a rapist keep his. Castration should only be done when there is evidence, but it should still be done.

  • Rapists should be castrated

    Yes, yes, and yes.

    Rape is traumatizing and brutal. It leaves a life-long effect on its victim. But yes, it might be difficult for a man to understand what rape is, and sometimes even for those who have never been raped.

    However, once someone has been undoubtedly proven to be a rapist, he should be castrated so that he can never force himself on another person. Laws make a lot of trouble for the raped victims; at least when the guilt is proven, it should support the victim and let the rapist see how the world looks like when he is robbed of his most precious possession. Imprisonment, or even death is not enough.

  • Yes, and maybe that's not enough.

    I see a lot of comments comparing guns and weapons to the perpetrators sexual organs. I feel that this is a strong and compelling argument that warrants further investigation. Just as we implement gun control today, I do believe that it therefore makes sense that we would implement a type of gun control on men. It has certainly been presented before that mass castration for men would be beneficial for society, and I would certainly support that. I realize that it won't happen today, but we need to at least keep that conversation going. As women gain more power in our institutions, I am confident we can keep the idea alive to be put into practice in the future and us making the world a far safer place!

  • Compulsory castration at birth to prevent rape.

    I am a man who supports compulsory castration of male infants at birth. It will mitigate sexual assault, violence, competition and lead to a quick dwindling of the virus of humanity. We have overstayed our welcome, anyway. Each and every undesirable man who engages in sexual activity has committed rape. Since desirability is subjective, every man is someone's potential rapist. Our mere presence is an ideological assault-if not a physical one- to some woman. Castration at birth would diminish this fear culture, and bring about a quicker end to humanity; win-win.

  • Rapists should Be castrated or killed

    Rape is in my opoinion the worst crime along with murder/ genovide . Being raped is one of the most tramatic and painful things and often leaves victims pemenayly scarred. If you rape someone ( and there is 100% certain proof) you should aoutomaticly lose your rights and be caterated or put to death. Chopping off genetaily without anstestia would prevent more rape, deture it , and be justified.If they die no one cares

  • Castration is appropriate for the crime of rape considering that a person's liberty has been violated.

    The rapist violated someone’s liberty, so their liberty should be violated as well. The logic here is “eye for an eye”, and it logically works. Liberty is one of the natural rights; procreation is a freedom, and should be up to the individual since it involves emotional, psychological, and physical connection. Forcing someone to give up that liberty is a violation of their natural right to liberty, and consequentially causes psychological, emotional, and physical damage.
    Rape is an crime, an action that goes against society, (ex. Murder). A rapist has put themselves at war with society, and thus has to face the consequences for their actions.
    Just as an aggressor has his weapon taken away, so should a rapist have his weapon taken away. In addition, capital punishment is appropriate for the crime of murder, so castration is appropriate for the crime of rape, (after proven guilty and convicted).
    The rapist can no longer rape, and this ensures society's safety and freedom.

  • 40% of Respondents so far are Rape Culture.

    "Castration is worse than rape itself"

    "What about the wrongly convicted?"

    "False rape allegations."

    These are senseless arguments, in my opinion, and promote a culture of rape. Honestly, If castration were implemented, rape would be taken more seriously. As a man, I support rapist castration for extreme cases. (Not every sex offender should be castrated, for example, but aggravated assault, child rape, ect.)

  • Castration is worse than rape itself

    Castration is a brutal way to punish someone.An adequate and reasonable punishment should include lessons to be learned and understanding what was done wrong and try to have a way forward.And by the way if someone is raped and hurt the solution should not be a permanent hurt but rehabilitation

  • What are you trying to do?

    Would castrating them prevent them from attacking more women? They still can beat them, kidnap them, and mistreat them.
    Legal punishment is there to keep people from stomping in others rights. Castration of rapists is plain and irrational revenge, as the only achievement here would be... What, exactly? To please feminazis?

  • What about the wrongly convicted?

    Everyone has no doubt heard many stories about people being wrongly convicted of murder based on false testimony. A much larger number of women falsely accuse men of rape and convictions can be made with very little evidence. If a wrong conviction is made and the man is castrated, later to be found innocent, what are you going to do? Glue his penis back on?

  • What if a conviction is overturned?

    Castrating rapists sounds like a great way to punish them, but what happens when you have a conviction based on bad evidence that is later overturned? You can release a man from jail, but you can't uncastrate someone. Castrating an innocent man that was wrongly convicted would be extremely immoral.

  • Castration is backwards (imprisonment and continual mandatory reparation for victim's rehab is more civil)

    You should note that your suggestion in itself is animalistic in nature bordering on savagery. If we all played your an eye for an eye game this we will be an uncivilised society. The best option would be rehabilitation for the victim and imprisonment for the criminal (plus monthly payments towards the victim's rehabilitation). How society reaches the point of consideration for such an issue is a step in the devolution of our species.

  • Rapists destroy lives.

    Their lives should be destroyed too. When a person violates another person, I say they lose the right to their own genitalia. They've shown that they can't use their junk responsibly, and they deserve the same pain and humiliation that they gave to their victim/s. Also, some people argue that we sholdn't do castration because of the chance that the person is inncocent. So should we give out light sentences for all crimes to account for the off chance that the person was actually innocent?? It's a dumb argument. Besides, it's extremely hard to convict someone for rape. Like seriously. They have to be really obviously guilty to get convicted. Tons of rapists get away.

  • False rape allegations

    No because they might be innocent i think its actually worse to castrate some one than the crime to begin with its more life changing and to someone who might not even have done anything that the woman or police say he did it would be unethical and just plain stupid

  • False complain already proved in India..

    I am astonished why the women seeking chemical castration for rapist..There is a big punishment that is death penalty..Why the women wants the rapist should be alive when there is a danger of revenge again if there is a false complain what will happen? One can be uncastrated? Is there any envy of male genitals???

  • To many false accusations

    Since there is discrimination against men when it comes to accusations this should not be done, if a women accuses a guy of something the majority of the time the law is on the side of the women, too big of a chance of hurting a innocent person for as long as this discrimination is around

  • Are we following sharia law or something?

    If you castrating should be a punishment for rapists, why not amputate the hands of thieves, cut the tongues of liars, mutilate the genitals of prostitutes, or chop off the limbs of people who beat others up? In the end, we have to make sure they wont do it again right?

This violates the 8th ammendment and a topic like this cannot have emotion brought into it. Yes rape is bad, yes they should get punished and yes they do ruin people's lives (to an extent) but to say that they should have their reproductive organs removed is stupid. I cannot believe that this is almost 2:1, clearly the constitution needs to be taught more in schools because if people think that doing something like this is moral or should be legal then we have failed them.
