If a man rapes then they should cut off his penis.

the sexual culture of today keeps this going on and on and on..having no penis means they will attack us in other ways. We need to change the violence from the inside out. RESPECT ...all people.

i agree Ronnie, but rape isn't about the penis, barbara you're right they will use something else because rape isn't about sex at all its about control. but i'd still enjoy cutting off thier penises :)

Rape is a crime, no matter the gender, it is a sin. It is not only women being raped, from men or women. It is also men being raped from women and men. The majority is women being raped by men. It is a hideous crime, that can destroy a person who is raped. It is body theft. Many of the suicide victims are here to find, they can not live with the shame of being raped, they feel degraded and worthless. Depresssions set in and in many cases the raped person turns shy, they do not want to...

Rape is a crime, no matter the gender, it is a sin. It is not only women being raped, from men or women. It is also men being raped from women and men. The majority is women being raped by men. It is a hideous crime, that can destroy a person who is raped. It is body theft. Many of the suicide victims are here to find, they can not live with the shame of being raped, they feel degraded and worthless. Depresssions set in and in many cases the raped person turns shy, they do not want to associate with others, they go through a crises, only the raped know. It is a chamber for many only escape.
When a child is raped, that is one of perverseness only equal. That is the stealing of a life just beginning. When raped by a father or even mother, these parents steal the child its future. The child or young woman, adult woman is not always to separate, that is raped, they feel unloved, they feel dirty, they are not good enough to be part of society, they feel watched, lured at. then the distrust even the authorities are distrusted, they remain alone, they search for barriers to hide behind. The female or the male psyche is severely damaged and this results in many other things, the subject is too large for here.
A rapist needs to be sentenced to prison for life, I am for that, even when the victim over lives. It is one of the most abominable, appalling, awful, bestial, detestable, disgusting, dreadful, crimes on this planet and is equal to murder. You are stealing the life of a person. Please sign the Petition Rape is Rape-

That is most definitely true! It's time we stop deciding who is a victim based on the victim and based on laws that say violating a person is rape always.

Gender roles have broken down somewhat in forty years but many have yet to learn women are not property to be used at will. Men must feel an extra shame in that they are forced to feel they may be not only weak but homosexual.

What kind of animal instinct exists in man...in becoming a rapist never puts up a ban...a death penalty for them is much too slow...it hardly takes a second to die on the gallow...punishment should be brutally cruel for each man to know...the next time he arises to make an assault...evading to find an escape for his fault...he would be castrated in front of public eye...none to hear his shout of heart cry...even the Lord would like to see such people suffer and die..

Rape is mostly but by no means exclusively by men. Thanks for getting involved.

Yes, Andrew. And women who use force or who coerce young boys (or girls) should by convicted also. And perhaps in our societies it is even more difficult for a boy or a man to speak out and get help and justice when it happens to them.

That's true, all the science supports that it is different. I wouldn't know about more difficult? Thanks for signing.

I was raped twice myself in 1982. The rapist received 4 years in prison. I sympathize with Lydia Cuomo. I don't understand why the rapist was a cop himself as he was supposed to protect the society. How terrible! The prospective police officers should be checked out first before being hired.

A complete disagrace to this woman and to the NY Justice system. It's hard enought to go through this, but then to have the law fail you feels like a double violation. I was not aware that this existed~this rape/not real rape currently. I know when it is a stranger/known-victim, the later is often not treated very seriously. When will the laws reflect that all forceable rape, and that is what it is, must be prosecuted strongly.

I just contacted Ararella Somota's office, she is the Assemblywoman mentioned above. I was told to write a letter and explain my reasons for supporting a new rape law. This is a more powerful thing to do then just hit yes to an on-line petition. The more actual letters they have, the more support is proven and will help. The Fax # is: 518-455-4044

Let us condemn and severely punish anyone who commits this heinous act against our principles, our feelings, and the future of our nation. Our mothers, sisters, wives, and friends cannot be subjected to any such acts. Stand firm with the females in our society and assure their safety and respect as citizens who feel safe enough to walk or be anywhere in Egypt. Farouk El-Baz
