Save the Dicks – 43/52 Ways to Stop Pedophiles
Yeah, yeah, we know. You didn’t expect Vagilantes to fight against castrating pedophiles. We take a firm, upright position: leave the dicks where they are.
Oh, we also know that pedophiles are not actually risking their dicks…it’s their balls, or some tubing, that people want to wave around as trophies.
Rep. Steve Hurst, an Alabama state legislator, is going for the gold – make that the family jewels. He’s announced plans to reintroduce an ol’ solution to child sexual abuse in the 2014 session. The proposal will legalize castration of convicted sex offenders over the age of 21 who assaults a child under the age of 12.
It’s too little, too late.
On our side of the fence is a vocal group of people who lobby for reproductive rights…the rights of a child rapist to reproduce if and when they want. Throughout US history, the issue of castration has coupled some strange bedfellows. (Ick! I like your vote, but don’t touch me.)
Vagilantes don’t agree that we should worry about protecting pedophiles’ sperm when they may have scarred a child, physically or emotionally, so that they will never have a family of their own.
There’s a solid reason Vagilantes don’t believe castration is worth the effort. We know it’s not the dick that does the deed.
A child rapist doesn’t need a hard dick to ruin a life. Physically and chemically castrated men in nine other states are still able to sexually abuse kids. The threat of castration has not been a deterrent to crime.
We’re glad that Alabama will be talking about how to stop pedophiles, thanks to Rep. Hurst. They need to look for a contemporary answer to the serious problem of CSA. We hope they move their attention from the crotch, and get to the HEART of the problem.
Ah, great idea…cut out their hearts!
Do you have a better solution?
