I don't think women get the "gender pass" from other women nor do I think that's been a result of the feminism movement. I am as outraged by female teachers who prey on their students as men who do the same thing. But, whenever someone dismisses these behaviors in women it's immature men (note all the times on these Topix that a man will say, "Sure wish I'd had a teacher like that.")<quoted text>
Violent rapists and pedophiles that cannot control their urges....send um away and offer them a surgical or chemical change, to stop their destruction of innocents!
Of the 20,000 offenders in Minneeesota, there are not many who fall into this category. There are a lot of guys who went to far, or made a bad choice, who can never be redeemed by law.
Also, male and female predators tend to come from two different places -- Females equate sex and love, and they are looking for love; males equate sex and power/control and they are looking for control. Men's sexual crimes are usually violent; women's aren't.
Even men who have been castrated report continuing to have sexual urges; they just find new ways to control and abuse victims. Again, the point is that it's not about the sex.
Sex offenses convictions have many levels in order to separate those who are most likely to reoffend from those who "made a bad choice" or "went too far." Although I suspect your definition of "making a bad choice" is probably far different from mine, I do agree there are people whose bad choices follow them long after they should. But then, the law is simply not always fair.
