    Ouch! But I have to wonder - if he was rejecting her advances, how is it exactly that she had such ready access to his genitals?

    Yes. I posted this in the original thread earlier today... she said that she was not a violent person. Hate to see what she'd be like if she was really mad...

    Did this happen again? Or are we just rehashing an already-posted story? Seems too similar to have been a seperate incident...

    It's the same story. It's just that earlier today she was convicted and sent down for 2 & 1/2 years...

    I am positive this has been brought up in the other thread, but I keep wondering what would happen if a man attacked a woman's vagina for refusing his sexual advances.

    My first thought is how was this physically possible. Although alcohol is known to cause strange aggressive behavior. It must have been at home with him already in the nude, just can't imagine this happening with a fully dressed person. She must have very sharp nails and strong muscular hands. The pain would be intense, in this case the alcohol would have been very helpful, intoxication would have dulled the pain. Also lucky that he didn't bleed to death. :eek:

    Right, and my question is how is this any different? Does a man attacking/violating a woman's sexual organs against her will differ at all from a woman doing the same to a man? Do you think the legal punishment would have been more severe, were the roles reversed? How did her being a woman factored into the entire situation?

    Point officially missed.

    Not at all.

    I'm in no way condoning what she did, I've never said it was different or that any allowances should be made for her because she's a woman... Frankly, I don't know what the hell you're talking about. If anyone's missing anything, it's you and that poor chap in the story.

    Calm down...

    I'm calm, and, officially, point still missed. How did you manage to take my question or idle wonderings which, if asked to anyone, were quite obviously to the entire board and not you, specifically, and turn them into me questioning something you never said? At no point did I quote you or claim that you were even remotely justifying that woman's behavior at all--in fact, I never said anything about you.

    I was just proposing the idea/wondering what might have been the legal repercussions and/or reactions of people on MacRumors had the situation been gender-reversed. Sentencing more harsh or less? Things of this nature.

    Were you an only child growing up?

    The left testicle would have been sterile at the point prior to removal. As long as they were faithful to each other, then she's safe as far as infections. It would be more the idea of such a thing, than risk to her safety. Her mouth would be the greatest danger, contains numerous bacteria. Luckily in this case doubt that they would even consider reattachment, second not of a real critical need.

    Err... No.

    Have you, in fact, grown up at all?

    I'm missing your point as well - how would a man have done something similar to a woman? It isn't possible to remove a woman's ovary with your bare hands while allowing her to survive.

    I don't think MR would be more or less harsh - well, maybe more harsh - if a man had in some way maimed a woman, although obviously the maiming could not have been at all similar in nature.

    It's not any different in my eyes...if you're psycho enough to attack someone in ANY physical fashion for not wanting sex with you, jail time is in order.

    I'm not sure what the legal sentencing limits would be for genital mutilation vs. rape, but I'm willing to bet that the man in question won't have been asked to testify as to what he was wearing and whether he'd been giving out "signals" that would lead her to believe he was "asking for it."

    Intelligent response.

    I never understood how anyone could defend rape by saying she was wearing/doing/etc so she *was asking for it*.

    If that was really true, there would be tons of rapes every day on all the world's nude beaches and resorts. Which by the way actually seem to be a lot safer for most woman than your average underground parking lot.
