Which is worse?
Rape or Murder
Big HS discussion... personally i think rape is worse. although murder may be permanent can be justifiable. plus rape is more psychological than physical. you can truly murder parts of peoples mind by raping them while murder no matter how dragged out it is always ends.
Rape, 'cos the victim has to live with it after.
Thing is, I've always considered rape and the muder of women much more heinous than the murder of men.
Rape. I've heard gruesome stories of rape and murder but rape shocks me the most. Maybe it's because I'm a female and it can happen to me.
Murder is worse. Death is ickyyyyyyyy.
Let's try rephrasing the question this way:
For all you males...
Would you rather have your mom/sister/girlfriend raped or murdered?
For all you females...
Would you rather have your dad/brother/boyfriend raped or murdered?
I would much rather have them murdered.
I would torture the bastard with all the knowledge available to me who raped a person close to me.
I'd simply shoot the person with a friend's rifle and dispose of the body if he murdered someone I associated emotionally with.
i would much rather have my family murdered than raped, partly because i dont like them very much, and partly because i dont want to care from them when they go through the mental breakdown of a harrowning and lengthy rape ordeal... unless then they were killed afterwards. then i wouldn't care either way.
personally under the right circumstances i think i could find myself capable of ending another persons life. but never could i ever rape a woman. EVER. its just a whole nother level of wrong. like torture for fun.
on another note i find it shocking that rape isnt in the ten commandments.... not that i want to bring religion into this as well. :/
I think we need to think more realistically.

I'd answer murdered is the worse.
I'd rather have myself raped, and not because I'm coward, but because I would rather see another day and still be able to support my family (assuming that I already have a job :p)
and for other people (gf/mom/sis) it is up to them, whatever their choice won't change me in anyway.
But if the option is left to the other person to decide, then the answer could be varies, which depends on the relationship between them.
If he/she really loves the other person (who decides his/her fate), then he or she wouldn't care what the answer would be because either way they know that it wouldn't change their feelings in anyway.
but another question arise what if he or she is still a child? what would you decide for him/her?
how about if we view raped as a disease, so would you have your kids have a disease or murdered?

Sorry... too tempting to reply.
YOU brought religion into here first. If you don't want it in.. then do not reply a comment to this message. XD
