As of right now, the results are:
42% - 177 deviants said I don't know / Equal
34% - 141 deviants said Rape
24% - 99 deviants said Murder
To the people who chose the first two options, I would like to make the following argument. Speaking to a rape victim, you are in effect telling them -
"You've been raped. I believe rape is worse than murder or just as bad. You are alive now, but I'd much rather (or indifferent whether) you'd have been killed instead. Your life after rape is worthless, or it has negative value - you can't possibly enjoy your life. I believe rape victims can't recover, since obviously murder victims can't recover."
Furthermore, it's logical to argue that people who voted that rape is worse than death are recommending that rape victims should commit a quick and painless suicide after (or preferably before) being raped.
What nonsense. Rephrasing the title of the journal: Being a rape victim is better than being dead.
