Kathy, you said " if they lost their testicles hopefully in a very painful way, rapes would stop almost the same day a few thousand males lost them."

I personally think it would be a million males who would lose their testicles but as you said, we can get along without those males anyway.

I have seen many news articles about young girls being raped, including a seven year old girl who was raped by seven males yet little is done about it. Why can we not get laws passed to execute any male who rapes a child and any male or forciably rapes a woman? Is it because they are afraid the male population will drop? If so, can we not get alone just fine without males like these?
