  • duh

  • As reflected in the sentences given.

  • Well, rape is more beneficial to a society than genocide.

  • If you get raped, you have a chance to take a sweet revenge. But if you get murdered, you will not have a chance to take revenge

  • This is no contest. Imagine that you come home one night to find out that your daughter has been raped. It's a tragedy indeed, but you know what? She is still alive, and can make a recovery. If your daughter were murdered, game over man. The only thing worse than finding out your loved one is murdered, is to find out they are alive, and being tortured constantly in agonizing pain.

One does not survive murder. One unfortunately may survive rape. There's no trauma when you are killed after all.

Taking someones life is taking away their very existence, whilst sexual crimes are abhorrent they are not comparable.

I am curios as to how people argued that rape was worse.

@Forthelulz - perhaps reword that without implying rape is beneficial?

It makes it sound like you may have proclivity in that area.

It's a reference to http://www.debate.org/debates/Rape-Pro-vs.-Genocide-Con-Which-is-more-Beneficial-for-Society/1/ Which the guy won't ope. So I can debate him.

Why is this a question that needs to be discussed by society? Its literally pointless because both are horrible.

There both harmful. Many rape victims commit suicide or become suicidal due to being raped.

There are cases where murder is worse than rape, e.g. parenticide, mass murder, etc., but in general, murder is worse. This is because there is usually a reason to murder - the victim owes you a lot of money, tried to harm you, etc. That doesn't justify the murder, but at least you have a valid reason to do it. Rape, on the other hand, is not understandable. People are just going for random, innocent people.
