I don't like it. It's validating the cultural myth that testosterone is a root cause of socially dysfunctional behaviour. And it re-establishes the precedent that chemically reconditioning someone for sexually unacceptible behaviour (which TOTALLY won't become a much broader category in the meetoo era).

Wow. I didnt expect to feel so conflicted reading the news. On one hand, this is probably the best treatment I've heard of for Male sex offenders to stop future crimes. it seems to reduce recidivism by 90% when combined with therapeutic treatment (which this law doesn't consider). https://www.researchgate.net/publication/41000727_Chemical_castration_for_sex_offenders On the other hand, I feel like it crosses a line of personal liberty and body autonomy that i dont like at all. this should be a voluntary process, perhaps with a touch of leniency given to those willing to undertake it. I'm not saying it should mitigate jail time, but perhaps make conditions of parole less intensive as long as they stay on the treatment. theres another thing I dont like about the bill, and that's that the meds cost $1000 a month in some cases and considering that is an ex-con how will they possibly pay for that? that's like advocating for a poverty sentance, and that's a bit much. so, I'm for the treatment but against the implementation of this law, but I still feel a little shakey on it all... change my mind?

and all you do is push the Jewish question, hate speech, and adhominem attacks because you dont have fact to support your positions. you couldn't even engage with my comment here, hell I doubt you even read it, all you could do is call me a "dumb cunt" which is ironic because you clearly werent smart enough to come up with a coherent counterargument.

Based, you need to chill. I don’t always agree with Jackie but she has every right to make her points. Don’t be a detestable fool.

According to this "modern law" 14 and older can now be legally targeted without a worry for the raping party of getting "castrated". This should sound great or what? I wonder if the politicians that came with these "briliant" solutions, got themself their brains castrated.

Too humane. I want public castrations with miniature guillotines. It could be a Pay-Per-View thing lol.

I prefer they castrate these piles of excrement the old fashioned way.

I say chemical castration violates the eight amendment. If they’re going to cut someone’s balls off just use a knife. Saves the taxpayer

How will Joe Biden win the Presidency if his nuts are neutralised? This is a death blow to the pedo deep state.

I think this can be considered cruel and unusual punishment. Some kind of clock work orange shit this is.

might this lead to some Clockwork Orange type shit? next we could chemically alter brain chemistry of criminals to make them more docile.
