• 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.

  • Castration and Lobotomy.

    Rapists sour the lives of there victims. I think the punishment should fit the crime. I don't think it should be done chemicaly though, it makes more since for it to be ripped off and cauterised. And the labotomy should be for parol violations. But i still think life long work camps for rapists is a good idea, fitting punishment and free workers. Thats a win win situation.

  • Cut 'em off.

    Though I will admit a more permanent solution would to just be put a bullet between their eyes. They can still molest with their hands if their junk is cut.... But they can't molest anyone when they are decomposing in the ground. I have eight more words left to add.

  • Rape is a crime of extreme subjugation and violence

    Removal of the perpetrators penis and testicles means he no longer has the physical means to rape again. Having been proven to have done this once society deserves to be protected from such behaviour. The perpetrator gives up his right to procreate and to derive sexual pleasure and satisfaction and frankly he deserves to be humiliated and that this be done in public with no pain relief - and preferably by the victim(s). His parts should be placed and mounted in a jar of preservative beside his picture in a public place as a warning to others.

  • Yes they should.

    Let's just say that a plane can't get off the runway without engines, or a train can't go without an engine, or that a rapist cannot rape without their "equipment". Rapists should be executed in my opinion and not granted any pardon an all on any level at all. There.

  • Castration and prison

    Leave them in prison. Why should they continue to live near those they hurt or be remembered. Prison. My ex brother in law and one of his sons are convinced rapists. Why should they be allowed to live outside an uncontrolled environment. Our justice system needs to be revamped with a life sentence. We need to provide a safer system for victims.

  • Removal of the testicles is mutually beneficial

    Males who are castrated can look forward to a longer lifespan, calmer behaviour and a much lower sex drive than what is common in males.

    Females living around a castrated rapist will feel safe, knowing he can no longer achieve erections as easily, nevermind have a high enough libido to rape again.

  • 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

  • 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?

  • Look at the case studies

    Rape is not a sexual thing for most rapists. It's about power. This has been proven over and over again via case studies. If someone is incarcerated for rape, and is castrated as the punishment, the urge to have power over people doesn't go away. When released they are likely to commit more rape, but instead of using their penis they will use objects and be significantly more violent. The UK did this pre-WW2, and something like 7 out of 10 would recommit the crime but with a way more violent twist.

  • Rapists should be castrated no matter what

    Girls tend to rape more than boys nowadays me myself I have been raped 3x by girls and nothing happened boys are more of value then girls and girls are not punished for their raping and we can't castrate a girl so no castration no matter what it should be banned and girls also fake rape

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.
