He is exaclty right- it's the power over a woman who would generally have nothing to do with that man, not the attractiveness of the woman. So that book/article is flawed in pointing out that it is generally less attractive men raping attractive women. That is true. Also, sex is the ultimate most intimate violation showing dominence versus just beating a woman up. If it's just about sex with a hot girl, why not get an prostitue? But it isn't always true you're right, just like it's not always true it's a lower economical person doing the raping to a physical attractie girl. There are always exceptions, always people who don't fit the standard, always ways to look at one study or book differently and skew it to make a point. But in general, take from multiple studies accross time (generations), genders, cultures, etc. and power and control are what fuels rape.
Also, castration was a punishment until recentley. In fact I think they still use some sort of hormone altering drugs for child rapist/molesters/violators.
Abnormal Psychology/Forensic Psychology is not my area of study but I have read quite a bit on rape cases (I have a MA in developmental psychology) through miscellenous classes, and talking to sexual psychologists who deal with this stuff on a daily basis.
Many rapists and serial rapists have wives and girlfriends. Therefore, having sex with a woman is not what they are missing. It is the thrill of the kill and the power over a woman that they crave.
I get the point, but personally I can't see us taking a QB in this draft, especially not in the 4th round when there are better players out there. I feel like the need for a backup now doesn't outweigh the benefits of having Webb on the roster. If the new acquisitions like Williams and Trusnik end up being effective on ST, then I can see them getting rid of Webb and taking a QB in next year's draft.
I understand what you and others are saying. And, I am not sure that I would take a QB in the 4th of this draft as well.
However, a strong case could be made that if a guy you like and think could be groomed is there, then you take him.
Anderson is old and on his way out of the league and Webb is NOT a potential QB of the future.
Bad teams wait until they have a big issue at a position to draft depth......good teams build depth on their team and have a next man up mentality.
As for Webb.....with the amount of improvement and additions that we have made to ST, his value there has been tremendously diminished.
If that's how you feel, I can't knock it. What he did was terrible. He took the life(s) of another human being.
I believe different in that I believe everyone deserves peace, peace of mind, etc. I was taught and brought up to have compassion and mercy on all living things. We all mess up and do things were not supposed to do. He wasn't put to death, so while he'll be in the pen, he's still got a chance to get his life right. Sad the guy murdered doesn't get that opp, though.
But like i said in the beginning, I def respect your opinion and feel where your coming from.
I understand where you are coming from but I just can't have a lot of compassion for a person who did what he did.
Murderers, rapists, and child molesters deserve what they get and more.
