    This.

    I don't think it will prevent women being raped and harmed by sexual predictors.

    Rather than locking up our vaginas, I think it's more important that we prevent rapists from, you know, raping.

    I agree with it just making the rapist more enraged and probably end up with beating or death.. don't think its a good idea.. maybe more education about staying safe and men how to treat women would be a better idea

    This, while it is a worthy idea, but not sure it would work. In the US, they did a trial where they medically castrated convicted rapists when they were released, they found among them that they turned to violence and murder instead of rape. A lot of the time it isn't about sex, it is about control, power and humiliation.
