I read the article, and it is angering. There has to be a way to send a permanent message to society that rape is unacceptable, and especially when the more dominant and privileged gender does it. What would be good would be if every boy was programmed from an early age that if he as ANY rape thoughts, he will instantly attempt suicide. And there should be laws making suicide perfectly legal.

But I know of no way to accomplish the above. I don't advocate removing the 5th Amendment. Some may thing it would be nice to exempt rapists from the cruel and unusual part, but there is always the risk that they are not guilty. Targeting the men most likely to rape in advance would bring allegations of discrimination. Raping the rapists is not a valid option either, since it would send a double message to society, and it has very little corrective value. Some of the rapists were rape victims, so that won't help them, and others are so cold and soulless that no torture in the world would break them. So cruel and unusual won't work.
