Castration for Convicted Rapists?
There were 261,000 rapes and sexual assaults in the United States,
in the year 2000. Seventy-two percent of those were never reported, of those reported, there is a
fifty percent chance of an arrest, an eighty percent chance that the sexual offender will be prosecu
ted, and fifty-eight percent of those prosecuted will receive a felony conviction. If there is a fe
lony conviction, only sixty-nine percent of those felons spend any time in prison; in total there is
only a sixteen-point-three percent chance that any rapists or sexual harassers spend a day in jail
at all. Those statistics are from the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network. Castrating or lobo
tomizing one such rapist may sound like a just punishment and, or deterrence, but there are some ver
y corrupt and defective consequences that would come from it.
Every woman is terrified of being rape
d, or at least she should be. The truth is that out of that minute number of convicted rapists, mos
t of them do not spend more than five-to-ten years in incarceration. They may be let off on "good b
ehavior", but they are most likely not reformed, they are let back into the world to rape and ravage
again. People are puzzled with the question of how to reform a convicted felon. In the book by An
thony Burgess titled, A Clockwork Orange, it portrays a young man named Alex Delarge who has been le
ft at the scene of a crime where he and his gang have murdered a woman. He is tried and convicted a
nd sent off to prison where, later, he hears about a "cure for criminals" still in the experimental
stages, but is said to get one out of prison quick and prevent one from ever breaking the law again.
Alex undergoes this so-called "cure" and is sent out of prison. This treatment gives a feeling of
nausea and death when the thought of any immoral act crosses his mind, but he is not reformed becau
se he does not know what else to think of, so much that he is not able to function as a part of soci
ety and tries to commit suicide. He is later reimbursed for his suffering and the treatment is reve
rsed. In the end of the book, Alex mockingly says, "I was cured alright." If the justice system we
re to destroy a rapist's libido, or other drives to rape, they would not be reforming them. That wo
uld only be taking away one of their basic instincts. A criminal should be taught that what they ha
ve done is wrong, and to be able to recognize it and control that impulse.
The government is definit
ely not right all of the time, there are plenty of mistrials, and false accusations, and false convi
ctions. If a punishment such as castration to rapists was put in to play, some men would be strippe
d of their manhood, and if the mistake were ever discovered, there would not be anything anyone coul
d do about it. They might get their life back but their pride. It is true that a punishment should
fit the crime, but one should not have to rely on an imperfect system of convicting criminals.
e rapists may be inhumane and non-deserving of life, but many of them go home to a forgiving girlfri
end or wife most nights. It is a scientific fact that a sterile man cannot fertilize an egg, which
could lead to a population decrease. Clearly, another alternative should be presented to somehow re
form these criminals, but maybe the real question here is, who really wants the offspring of a rapis
t in their backyard anyway?
There should be a way to keep criminals from acting again without stripp
ing them of their rights, no one should feel sorry for these disgusting rapists, but it is a technic
al matter. Taking so much charge against this would cost billions of tax dollars and probably creat
e more harm than good. Too many women are raped each year and it should be stopped, but mutilating
a prisoner goes against all constitutional rights and would be an enormous burden on the population.

LOL! Search google I guess. Sounds like a good idea. Something more should be done than the Crap our system does about it now. Ppl who think punishments should be "lighter" have never had a family member raped. Come at it from a person who's best friend or family member was raped. This is the best for writing on the subject.

Goodi please stop using my profile to justify your inane remarks.
Look at the Netherlands and Sweden in the 1960's. They were trying both chemical and physical castration.
There are good journal reports that showed the they worked and that they did not work.
From my own experience as a homicide/sex detective I can tell you that it is not the testicles that make a rapist it is the need to have power over someone sexually. So without testes those that are disposed toward rape will still force themselves on women, they just can't use their penis.

I have never been raped, never even close to it.
Most sexual assaults occur during an out of control date.
I give my dates advance warning on what I am willing to do, if anything, and what I am not willing to do.
Changing your mind after he licks your panties off is an out of control date.
Protect yourself, protect your date.

Although it sounds like a good idea, Castrating men would only makes things worse. Many of the longterm effects on even fully grown adults could deform their bodies in the span of years without proper testosterone. Another problem is that if this punishment was carried out on rapist, it could create the potential of Testosterone drug trafficing and far only force convicts to play what would techniclly be another monthly fee for survival. And in the end, we are still generalizing, If a rapist was fully reformed and wanted to start over, then this would make things FAR worse.

temporary chemical castration might make sense, but how'd you like your balls cut off, only to have it proved later you were innocent?
how would you like to lose your balls to a Mike Nifong?

While you're at it, why not chop off the hands of a person who steals, or cut out the tongue of those who lie under oath? Oh, right...we don't live in a barbarian culture.
