It is very interresting to me that you have the experience of seeing someone who has been on both sides of the fence. I have always wondered how anyone could do that--be on both sides, but as you stated, she has admitted that there really is no rehabilitation. This in itself says a lot to me, especially coming from someone who has worked with both sides as your therapist has. Most interesting indeed. I wonder how many other people who work with offenders feel the same way. You know, despite my education in psychology, one can't deny the facts. The act of rape is a crime that is worse than all others in my books. That being said...do we expect murderers to be 'cured'? not likely. We tend to try and lock them up for as long as we can so they can't do it again--because we know they will. Now if murder is a lesser crime then rape, why are the rapists roaming the streets? Why do we not lock them up and forget the whole notion of rehab? Or is it because the crime of rape is primarily against women?
