    Some very emotional answers here.
    I don't really know, myself. The death penalty is in my view too extreme for basically any case, so I guess just a long prison sentence. Not that the prison system is all that great either. Sure it's good as a deterrent and to keep people out of society, but once they go back into said society, they're not really going to be rehabilitated and are liable to re-offend.

    Let's not let our emotions get ahead of ourselves and scream "death penalty" at any given opportunity, or detail torture routines that make a vivisection seem like a spa day. I don't support the death penalty under any circumstance, and this is no difference. Rape cannot be compared to murder, to do so is just absurd. Psychological torment will ensue, however, no life has been lost. The death penalty is demonstrably not a good deterrent, violates the very moral principles under which the criminals are being tried, and is ultimately an appeal to emotion over reason. It is a sad reflection that we take pleasure in the suffering of anyone.

    They should be sentenced to a prison sentence long enough for them to be rehabilitated

    Prison/ or death penalty but it depends. If a child rapist or molester has made it pretty clear that they're going to continue harming children once they get released, it's a waste of time trying to change them and pretending that they can be productive citizens if an elementary school would be the first place they'll stop by. I think its more inhumane to release a threat back into society knowing they will cause more harm to children than the death penalty.

    Considering that men can get be found guilty of rape if the woman consents to sex while drunk on the previous night but forgets about it the next morning and accuses the man of rape, and given how the law is stupid that a man lying about using contraception is rape but a woman lying about using contraception is not rape, there should really be no fixed punishment for rape. However, in clear cut cases of forced rape, the rapists deserve a long time in prison.

    Also, under UK law, do you really want to punish a man who is forced against his will by malicious individuals who force people to have non-consensual sex? Under UK law, a man who is forced to engage in sexual intercourse with a non-consenting woman would likely be found guilty of rape. Again, these are the sort of anti-male laws Labour governments like passing (the Sexual Offences Act 2003), where rape only refers to non-consensual sexual intercourse by a man on a woman and there are blatant double standards that punish a man much more severely than a woman who does the same thing. But if, the rapist happens to be someone from a group the Labour Party likes (such as in Rotherham), they get away with forced rape of little girls.

    Depends. There are varying degrees. Rape is much more serious than mild touching so don't deserve the same punishment. It depends on the facts of the individual cases.

    I think both are less serious than murder though.

    Her consenting then forgetting is not rape. It would have to be proven beyond doubt that she did not consent the previous night for him to be found guilty.

    Women can't have sex with a man when he does not consent. It is not physiologically possible. That law is right because nobody can force a man to have sex with a woman but they can force a woman to have sex with a man.

    Anal rape is rape under UK law.

    Quite right: after all, who ever heard of an involuntary erection?

    Before Benjamin Bree was found not guilty by the Court of Appeal in R v Bree, he was found guilty, because she claimed that she did not consent in her drunken state even though Bree claimed she did. As a result, Bree was imprisoned for six months before being found not guilty by the Court of Appeal.

    Women can have sex with a man without his consent, such as by force-feeding him Viagra or if the man has an involuntary erection.

    Sense hath been spoken.

    Prison and rehabilitation. That's the sensible, humane answer. Killing and mutilation are barbaric forms of punishment that only serve to create more suffering for the sake of satisfying an emotional desire for revenge. There's justice and there's vindictive retribution.

    If it's death to a rapist there's nothing distinguishing the crime of raping a child and killing one.

    Stick them in jail for life with no TV, no interacting with other inmates, 30 minutes of "exercise" three times a week and basic meals. Every month have a week with no interaction with other human beings, even the officer bringing in the food is wearing blackout riot gear and looks more like a robot than a person - no exercise.

    If they're getting out make them think about it every day for the rest of their life, they have to report in to a rehab center and if they change location they have to alert everyone within a certain radius of their new home that they are a convicted pedophile/rapist - even if that gets them glassed maybe they should think "Ah ****, maybe I shouldn't have fiddled a kiddy :/ poor me I guess"
