Only about 5 or 6 out of every 1000 rapists serve any jail time at all and a lot of the community didn’t think they should be punished, as apparently you don’t either. And is that what you really want to be publicly known for, defending rape and rapists as not really such a big deal? All I can say is Wow! The harmful part about rape is the psychological aspect not the physical one. Most people (men get raped too, about 38 a day in the military alone) who are raped suffer from things like depression, PTSD, insomnia, anxiety, etc.
