This is a question Social Media Meltdowns

Ever said something you've regretted on the internet? Seen somebody make an arse of themselves? Know somebody who posts first and asks questions later? Dob them in to us, the internet police. (We last did this five years ago before Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook really took off, so now's the time for an update)

Thanks to Benny Blanco from the Bronx for the suggestion

Welcome to rape island...
I used to be involved in The Venus Project. For those who don't know it's a project in Florida founded by architect and inventor Jacque Fresco advocating the automation of production to it's fullest extent this including management of the worlds resources. Obviously within all this is a change in the ethos and values of society allowing us to follow our dreams and not have to worry about were our items come from as people will be more socially conscious and so forth.

I was essentially a moderator on their facebook page answering queries and deleting inappropriate or irrelevant comments. Enter the crazy lady. I was asked about the end were people could have anything they wished for. I said that if people were raised in a caring, loving and safe society that thought values that would serve society and ultimately humanity and processes were streamlined then, essentially, a lot more would be possible.

"How about an Island for rapists?". Not, in any sense, the average question I would be asked to which I replied "Ya what now?". "An island for rapists were people who wanted to get raped could go an visit, like a resort"... Right.

"Well, ideally the environs that create rapists would be eliminated in such a society. If the problem was genetic or biological then a medically advanced society would probably research means in which to treat the people effected". Job done.

"You can't treat rapists so the Island would be a safe place were they could rape people who wanted to be raped!". Sigh. "Yes you can, as I said rapists or other sexual deviants are usually a product of society or suffer from a psychiatric illness".

Somewhat incensed crazy lady CAPS LOCKED "AND HOW THE FUCK WOULD YOU KNOW!!!!". I replied with "I treat sexual deviants...".

Ninj edit: made it a bit clearer. Certainly not going back through the weres/where's.

It is a valid question.
If the person you were corresponding with treated sexual deviants and you don't then what makes you more qualified to state what causes it and how to treat it? ;)

Ah, fair enough.
As long as the treating didn't consist of giving them kinder eggs and finger of fudge.

Bit lost here.
Was the lady for or against it? Did you mean "CAN'T just treat rapists ..."?

Also, why didn't you point out that "wanting to be raped" kind of foils the whole 'rape' aspect of it?
(, Fri 21 Jun 2013, 20:12, closed)
I clarified above.
Also I think she was willing to put in a bit of acting rather than sitting there and moan in excitement throughout the ordeal.

Surely if they want to get raped then it's not rape?

A wanks not classed as sex
but it's still messy is the point I think she was trying to make.

Fair point, well made
But unless it's legitimate rape, how will the women's bodies know how to reject the sperm and not get pregnant?

DE-RIS just in case

Fucking hell. I hope he was just trolling.

How exactly do you do something against someone's consent with their consent?
Would it not have been simpler to just point out that the dumb cunt didn't understand the word 'rape'.

The idea is that the tourist would
enjoy the "resisting" part of the rape thus simulating the act and in her mind satisfying both peoples needs. I was trying to explain that often rapists are avoidable productions of society.

My apologies. I didn't make myself clear.
I was simply pointing out that you're both morons.
(, Sat 22 Jun 2013, 9:31, closed)
Are you implying I'm a moron?
(, Sat 22 Jun 2013, 9:49, closed)
Implying? No. I'm saying it directly.

(, Sat 22 Jun 2013, 10:43, closed)
why would you say that than?

(, Sat 22 Jun 2013, 11:09, closed)
Because you're a moron.
Is English your third language?

What if it is?
Would you have a problem with that? Clearly you can't handle people talking back to yu.

I was waiting for one of you to reveal that you're really a badly programmed chatbot.

Or just say "tell me about your mother", We all have our little peccadilloes.

I'm not sure what's more ridiculous:
consensual rape, or the automated utopia which eliminates all misbehaviour before it happens.
(, Fri 21 Jun 2013, 23:38, closed)
No one said utopia :)
But a lot more would be possible if decisions were made by experts in their fields as opposed to media conscious politicians.
(, Sat 22 Jun 2013, 7:57, closed)
So, a technocracy, then?
By automation, I assumed that you meant an end to labour which, whilst a noble idea in theory, would probably lead to widespread civil unrest.
(, Sat 22 Jun 2013, 14:52, closed)
not quite
An end to labour that can be automated. People would be educated in more "noble" sciences. Any kind of a transition to it (were it ever to happen) would have to be well planned out and guided by the scientific method. I don't think that the Venus project is the organisation to deliver this.
(, Sat 22 Jun 2013, 16:22, closed)
Nothing can be completely automated.
Until machines that can think are invented, you will always need some form of human control over a process.

I'd start by rounding up all the naysayers.

You probably would.

When you put it like that, I'd rather take my chances on Rape Island, and I'm very pretty

So, what you're saying here is that you're a rapist?

Like one

The thing about wanting to be a rapist is...
...well, it makes you look like a rapist.

I don't think rapists deserve treats...
