Female Sex Offenders Protected By The Criminal Justice System

Female sex offenders receive lighter sentences for the same crimes than males says a study recently published in Feminist Criminology, a SAGE journal and the official journal of the Division on Women and Crime of the American Society of Criminology.

Embry and Lyons looked at the sentences that male and female sex offenders received for specific sex offenses and found that even after the implementation of sentencing guidelines to ensure equality in sentencing, on average male sentences were between 6% and 31% longer than female sentences for the same or similar crimes.

"It appears as if the criminal justice system actually treats women more leniently than men," wrote Randa Embry and Phillip M. Lyons, Jr., authors of the study.

The researchers explained this disparity by discussing the American idea that "women are weaker and, therefore, must be protected at all times regardless of their status as victims or offenders."

Embry and Lyons analyzed data from the U.S. Department of Justice's National Corrections Reporting Program from the years 1994 to 2004. Sex offenses included rape, statutory rape, sexual assault, child sexual assault, and forcible sodomy.

"This leads to the supposition that women, regardless of the departure from social and gender norms committed in concurrence with the offense for which they are being sentenced, continue to be viewed as individuals who should be protected by the justice system," wrote the researchers. "Obviously, as a social institution, the criminal justice system is reluctant to break those social norms and gender roles in response to atypical gendered behavior."

  1. Double standards exist because.:
    1.) Virgin girls are weak and stupid. Their arousal is limited within the clitoral area. As a result, first time intercourse may hurt no matter how gentle he may be .Most virgin girls never tried vaginal masturbation, (only clitoral) leaving their vaginas untrained for intercourse.
    2.) Virgin boys masturbate by rubbing their penises, so they know how to use it for intercourse. Most boys never say "please be gentle". Many boys do not expect pain.

    During first time intercourse, a girl may suffer various vaginal weaknesses such as:
    1.) Painful vaginal dilation.
    2.) Painful breaking of the hymen (if present).
    3.) Vaginal bleeding
    4.) Pain due to insufficient vaginal lubrication.

    Those weaknesses can be felt by a woman even during consensual sex.
    A virgin penis does not have such weaknesses. That’s why teen boys are lucky. Virgin vaginas are SO WEAK, thus making them look like victims.

    If a big penis is too rough on a virgin vagina, it could hurt her. If a vagina (big or small) is too rough on his virgin penis, its every boy's fantasy coming true.

    DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MALE RTAPISTS & FEMALE RAPISTS:

    1.) FEMALE RAPISTS
    Only NON-VIRGIN WOMEN can rape men. Just type the keywords "Russian Woman raped 1 man" on Youtube.
    But virgin girls cannot rape men/boys. Because virgin girls are clueless about the functions of their vagina because they masturbate by rubbing their clitoris (while ignoring their vagina).

    Since most virgin girls expect vaginal pain during first time, they cannot rape men/boys.
    How can virgin girls rape men/boys if most virgin girls prefer clitoral, not vaginal? How can a virgin vagina (weakest genitals on earth) be able to assault a penis?
    The fact that the female genitals are mostly INTERNAL, makes virgin girls more clueless about their vaginas.

    Only non-virgin women can assault a penis. It's only possible if a woman takes all the drastic measures.

    So if you ever read a report about a woman raping a man, guess what, she may already had intercourse PRIOR to raping a man.

    2.) MALE RTAPISTS
    Men in general, even VIRGIN MEN can rape women/girls. Since virgin men masturbate by rubbing their penis, they know how to use it for sex or rape.

    There's also a huge difference between first time consensual sex stories by males and females.
