You're asking a rape victim, to laugh at an article like that.

Why don't you go look for the articles I've posted in the fun and jokes sections. I'm not a barrel of laughs in THIS one, no.

Which '1' am I incensed over? I've dealt with the fallout of so many Boomer, it becomes impossible to sit and listen to someone say I should laugh a little about the topic. So which ones should get shrugged off? Which ones matter? Enlighten me.

Rape crosses the mid of all males????Are you frigging serious???? I'm positive it doesn't actually.

I'm sure that sex crosses the mind of all males (and all females too btw) though. Completely different issues/topics though.

Dark fantasies are pretty common. But what that manifests as is pretty different for every individual. It's not abnormal so long as it stays a fantasy and not a compulsion.

But he said Rape. He knew what he was saying.

I am certain it doesn't... but we're talking about EAO's twisted mind.

I understand fantasies and I understand dark fantasies. Sexual fantasies. Which are vast and as varied as the number of individuals who have them.

But rape is an act of violence which has nothing whatsoever to do with sex. So I still do not buy that all males fantasize about violence.

Seriously. Corporal punishment has never prevented someone from becoming a violent offender. That is a twist in your logic that you're not likely to sell someone on. Being too soft on kids doesn't make them go out and beat grandmas half to death and rape them. You're taking a bizarre leap there. Really bizarre.

You're right and even CAPITAL punishment hasn't even worked as a deterrent against crime! What chance does corporal punishment have??

That is true but not all males (or females). Some of us are just quite boring.

And if the docs ever get the whole thing figured out and 'fixed', he'll get let out. I just wanted to illustrate that saying the teen is getting a psych eval doesn't mean it will be the cake walk some people think it is. They think our justice system sees mental illness as a get out of jail free card. But they really do have to demonstrate that they are well to get out. The unfortunate part for my friend is that his isn't a simple case of mental illness, it's a case of retardation that they're trying to treat as if it was illness. They've given him a benchmark that's impossible to meet. But I really don't know what the alternative is.

Yep, there's some sad cases no doubt because someone else made them that way. But none of that helps the victim- very sad on all fronts.

Maybe not but capital punishment prevents repeat offenders.

I sincerely hope he's found both not mentally ill, and possessing of adult comprehension of his crime.

Mental issues rarely work as a get out of jail free card except for those that have no real issues but can afford a sleazy lawyer.

Maybe and maybe not. You've shown a complete lack of understanding when it comes to mental health issues so you'll excuse me if I wait to hear from the experts.

Agreed, I was going to post something about that a day or so ago but wandered off to do something else.

I have never thought of or fantasized over raping someone.

It has never once crossed my mind any more than having sex with another male or a child.... I think he needs to get some help if he thinks the thoughts of rape are normal.... sweet jesus.
