    Saying that women should be careful and take precautions when out at night and alone (in relation to rape) is not victim blaming.

    I am in favor of capital punishment
    Texas have the highest crime rate in the USA, incidentally one of the states with capital punishment- clearly it is not a very good deterrent.

    In addition it cost more for the state to execute a citizen than it does to imprison them, food for thought?

    I wouldn't say that's controversial. That's one of the main arguments used against UKIP - the lack of policies aside from their flagship issues. They've gone into elections without a proper policy document - they went into the European elections with a very short "manifesto" which had very little in it from what I remember.

    I don't think people say that is victim blaming. Victim blaming is saying that its the victims fault because they were drunk or something, which is totally wrong.

    My most controversial view? Well, I'm back from my 12 day timeout. During that time I was able to finish my 200 words essay on the topic of Nazi Germany. My thesis is that Hitler & Nazi beliefs are carried on by twitch tv TSR moderators who like to act as if they themselves were literally Hitler. I think I should score at least 90 out of 100 points for that paper.

    Some do. I've seen people arguing about it on here and some are saying "oh but they shouldn't have to be careful, men shouldn't rape"! Which yes, would be ideal but that isn't real life.

    Hey guys,

    As the title says, what is the view you hold deemed most "controversial" in this society we live in today in Britain?
    The abandoning of a disabled fetus - down syndrome etc. No one wants a child who has it - a burden on everyone.

    Oh yeah they should not have to worry and neither should men, but that does not change the fact that we should still be vigilant. I myself would be more worried about being stolen from, but then I am a gent :P

    what are yours? I think its actually a good thing that my most controversial view is about butter...although I wouldn't call it controversial.
    Mine is that is homosexuality is ok and bisexuality is ok, incest should be ok (as long as all parties are of age), and so should non-animal cruel bestiality....

    Even if it was their idiotic choice to have sex without protection ? Why should a baby have to suffer for that persons decision.

    I think prisons right now are doing a **** job, and even worse once the prisoners are out as its extremely hard for them to get a job and a whole host of other things needed to settle down into society.


    So...you basically think prisoners like that should basically be tortured for at least 15 years. What about when those 15 years are up? Do you think after being repeatedly abused, locked up for 23hrs a day and repeatedly raped that these prisoners won't reoffend when out? If you think they won't you are delusional and I question your intelligence.
    Its not torture, my dear.
    If we were to be realistic with rape being non existent in uk prisons but back to the subject.Harden criminals should never be allowed to walk free and must be placed in a cell for 23 hours a day.
    We should also give prisoners,whilst in prison a chance to work for their commodities.

    -bring back the death penalty

    Why should the baby and society have to suffer? Who will provide for the baby? What kind of job will be available for the mother? By having to keep or by keeping the baby one is, in many situations, condemning the mother the baby even the father (if applicable) to low income, bad education, alround bad living because even if they are supported by family how can your family support another family?

    Because it is not a baby its an embryo/fetus its not alive. Obviously the person is not suggesting aborting a baby
