Of course not. Let's do some research first to fix the problem. I may not know how to fix this problem, but I do want it fixed. Correctly.

That research has been in process for years now. Sigmund Freud made some breakthrough discoveries but he bailed out when he had apply his findings to his own past.

Here's a thread on the topic:

Nah. Televised blood sport. American Gladiator for reals. Make money off of 'em rather than having them cost us money. I'm only partially kidding. Angel

RE: Should violent criminals be castrated?
To those who think that some may deserve it - like others on these boards have pointed out, castration doesn't really prevent sexual crimes, neither those of paedophiles nor of ordinary rapists. I'm sure I don't need to explain to anyone how someone can be raped even by an impotent man/or by a woman (which is not what castration causes anyway).

But hey, high horses are fun, aren't they?

In the situation of rape or molestation, I could see a fracture or castration of a penis okay. Because it was used in the offense.

But if we are talking about thievery, I say we cut off their hand.
Perjury, cut out their tongue.
Murder, death.

Castration seems like a bit much if it wasn't used in the offense.

Castration is wrong, no matter what the offence.

By that logic we'll still be cutting off hands for thievery and will have the death penalty all over the world, instead of just in countries which refuse to join the rest of the world in the 21st century.

I have a friend who feels that violent criminals should be used for medical/science testing. *shrug*

Yeah. She's a very harsh kind of person. But I wouldn't call her a waste of skin. Kind of an uninformed statement. Shes been my best friend since I was 14. I'd hate for her to be leader of anything however. lol.
