I first heard that castration was being used in
an attempt to curb the rate of child molestation
or to punish child molesters, I didn't think that
sounded like an effective idea, so I started asking
some experts about this. Their experience is that
castration doesn't entirely work - it works partly
because it does minimize the amount of testosterone.
However, that isn't the only contributing factor
to molestation. These therapists support therapy
over castration and I think that sounds like a
better approach. I can't remember where I read
this information, but I remember reading studies
from South Africa, proving that castration hadn't
resolved the problem.
