It seems to me that the whole castration argument is hopelessly mechanistic. A great deal of evil is in heads, not balls, and it is remarkable how much nastiness some of these shites could achieve without an erection.

I didn't know this thread was out there until recent posts. I don't have time to check through everything so far, but my first impression is this is just one more example of the folly of retributive justice. Threatening a sex offender with castration won't reduce crime any more than the death penalty has reduced murder rates in the states that execute convicts.

Those proposing this kind of "justice" have likely never bothered to read that the majority of sex offenders themselves were subjects of sexual abuse as children also. Just preventing them from offending would be enough in most civilized societies, but this looks like one more example of why it's a bad idea to have judges and prosecutors running as candidates for election to their office.
Thanks from iolo
