In reply to comment: Many more "straight" guys (see in situ)

Just wondering, if a guy is straight,

why would they sexually abuse a boy? Doesn't sound very straight to me. How about if we just call them sick or evil regardless of whatever label they apply to themselves?

Someone who is sick or someone who is evil abuses another person.

Thomas Jefferson sought to take care of the problem this way:

"Whosoever shall be guilty of Rape, Polygamy, or Sodomy with man or woman shall be punished, if a man, by castration, if a woman, by cutting thro' the cartilage of her nose a hole of one half inch diameter at the least."

And that was in lieu of the death penalty in hopes of reforming, of which Jefferson said,

"And whereas the reformation of offenders, tho' an object worthy the attention of the laws, is not effected at all by capital punishments, which exterminate instead of reforming"
