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 :)

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

This is a "national shame" for Egypt. Just one case of sexual harassment in Egypt is one too many. Our country has always respected and revered its women and several ruled the country very well in ancient times. Let us stand firm and secure the safety and respect of the mothers of future generations. Egypt's women are no less than its best men.

Sometimes people do not quite get the concept of proof. Proof is very hard to come by and many men are in prison falsely accused. The character of the victim is not an indicator of proof. The reason why is that there are times when people do act out of their normal character. It can be from stress, regret, drugs or alcohol or any number of things. I don't like people being raped. But I do want strict proof before anybody gets one dime in fines or even one moment under arrest. America needs...

But I do want strict proof before anybody gets one dime in fines or even one moment under arrest. America needs to confront the fact that way too many innocent people go to prison on a host of charges. If proof is really there no jury will ever be wrong.

He was a cop & a cop supposed to be an example. I help with the blue light disco & go to the cops after party. These cops tried cracking on to my little sister of 14. The uniformed coppers are filthy beasts who think they are above the law but i can understand what your sayin about proof. Confession is proof enough. He was helped by his buddys where other men would be jailed for far less.

Many people are tricked into confessions. The cops can easily tell a man that he is looking at life in prison if it goes to trial whereas they can give him a year for simple assault if he confesses. We need hard proof in every case. The numbers of men now free due to DNA testing tell us that many innocent men are in prison.

Y know? I'd far rather read about a woman turning, aiming and firing and not getting raped at all.Gov't can't help, and calling 911 to have someone else with a gun, come help you and possibly save your life with their gun, gives the rapist too much time. Get One, Get Training, Be Safe,

Sounds great that only responsible people without records can own a gun. Pity it never works out that way.

Calgary Alberta has the worst reputation in the world for rape, abuse and murdering of women and children particularly of foster children. it is so common that our police department ignores it. I offered them proven evidence of brutality and rape of a 5yr old girl in the form of a 15 page hospital report. They wouldn't even look at it. One of them, laughed in my face. The perpetrators where clearly named in it.

I t is so disgusting that even it is proven , nothing is done , perhaps it should happen to the one's who are up on the top positions , and tell there story how there liked the RAPE after there been in that kind of situation .. may be there like the brutality ..

Rape is Rape. What is sexually attractive about a 10yr old boy? That's how old I was! I kept it bottled up for over 25yrs, & I was a severe alcoholic for close to 20yrs because I felt so ashamed, & couldn't get the thought of it out of my head. It made me full of hate! I don't like that word,but there's not a substitute in this situation...I'll plaster it to my FB timeline since I don't see a share!

Lydia, I'm happy to see the beautiful smile on your face in spight of the terrible injustice your peers decided during the trial of the officer who took power into his own hands and raped/wronged on of the citizens he was sworn to protect. Continue living your life to the fullest and be the best woman, teacher and person God planned your life to fullfill. You are an example of courage ans strength. Thank you.
