The Water Cooler – Child Molesters Who Are Released From Prison – Should They Be Chemically Castrated?


The “Water Cooler” is a feature on where we ask you a question or provide a topic, and you talk about it.

The “Water Cooler” will be up Monday-Friday at noon.

Today’s question:


California has a law that mandates chemical castration of repeat sex offenders. Whether the state enforces the law is another story.

QUESTION: Should ALL convicted child molesters (not just repeat offenders) in California be chemically castrated once they’re released from prison?

Talk about it….

Shouldn’t be released in the first place. I have zero feelings for that type of behavior.

XJ September 17, 2021 - 9:12 PM - 9:12 PM

Castrated from the neck up.

Absolutely despicable. Just goes to show you how low the standards of ‘normal’ people have become. These are the ones who are charged with protecting the public, the young ones, the law abiding citizens. Yet, they pander and cater to the wants of the criminals putting their wants ahead of our needs (aka safety). I bet the judges and lawyers and lawmakers would feel a millions times different if it was them or their family members that this person decided to visit.

Gonna say no to the first conviction. One more and Go For It!!

LucyTwoBunz September 17, 2021 - 7:36 PM - 7:36 PM

Seriously? Once is OK…twice is going too far??? This is about CHILDREN BEING MOLESTED!!!

Deep Thoughts September 17, 2021 - 12:10 PM - 12:10 PM

Think about this…imagine it was your child, what would you want done.
you dont need a working Penis to rape and violate another person.
violent sexual acts against a child should result in death.

Ano September 17, 2021 - 7:34 PM - 7:34 PM

This right here.

MoJo September 17, 2021 - 12:11 PM - 12:11 PM

No. They should be left in prison and physically castrated. Preferably with a cheese grater.

Bitterman September 17, 2021 - 12:22 PM - 12:22 PM


Max September 17, 2021 - 12:27 PM - 12:27 PM

Mo Jo, That sounds like what they deserve! Unfortunately most liberals think that is cruel, so they are freed to do it again.

Aaron September 17, 2021 - 9:37 PM - 9:37 PM

Most of the liberals I know would want them to use sandpaper because a cheese grater is too nice. It’s inarguable that such is unconstitutional though however I feel on the subject.

DD September 17, 2021 - 12:16 PM - 12:16 PM

Chemically? No.
Rusty garden shears comes to mind.

Bdpirate September 17, 2021 - 12:18 PM - 12:18 PM

They should be shot, either while in prison or released.
Sicko’s they all are just kill them and be done with the vermin.

Cellophane September 17, 2021 - 6:29 PM - 6:29 PM

Upon conviction

They should be shot.
Sicko’s they all are just kill them and be done with the vermin.

Rolaids September 17, 2021 - 12:51 PM - 12:51 PM

The natural answer would be yes, or any of the more grisly forms of castration I see some Claycordians are championing. But LEGALLY, if biological intervention can be efficacious for reducing the criminal urges of sex offenders, why stop there? How about cutting off the lead foot of habitual speeders? Or the hands of thieves? Financial criminals can be a clever lot. How about mandatory THC injections to destroy their motivation and mental clarity? In my view, people should be either free, on probation, incarcerated, or executed. I don’t think blending the penal system with the medical system is going to end well.

A waste of time, all it does is lower testosterone levels, it is not successful at preventing aggressive or violent behavior. Psychosurgery is probably a better choice, a neurosurgeon can remove the specific part of the brain that is responsible for aggressive and violent behavior. However, it will never be done because it’s in violation of the Eighth Amendment. (Cruel and unusual punishment.)
Think about it, people are screaming about mandating the COVID vaccine being unconstitutional, what would happen if chemical castration or brain surgery was forced upon someone?

Law & Order September 17, 2021 - 1:39 PM - 1:39 PM

The FBI didnt care when Dr. Larry Nassar sexually molested 100 young gymnasts. So why do you think anyone in our Govt would care now?

Damon September 17, 2021 - 1:56 PM - 1:56 PM

Everyone of them should be executed 5 minutes after they are convicted.

Addlepate September 17, 2021 - 1:58 PM - 1:58 PM

How does one chemically castrate the adult female high school teachers who have sex with minor students (male or female)? Not all child molesters are male. The question above does say “all convicted child molesters”.

Badger September 17, 2021 - 2:34 PM - 2:34 PM

How about a pedophile passport?

Janus September 17, 2021 - 2:35 PM - 2:35 PM

To what end?

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders define pedophilia as “recurrent, intense sexually arousing fantasies, sexual urges, or behaviors involving activity with a prepubescent child or children (generally 13 years or younger).”

Chemical castration is not going to change a pedophile’s innate sexual fantasies and desires. Chemical castration might make penial penetration more difficult or even impossible but it will not prevent molestations or sexual abuse by pedophiles since the primary motivation is phycological and not physical.

If you want to use it for punishment, that is a whole different argument.

Chemical castration can cause diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke
heart attack, problems with thinking, concentration, memory loss, osteoporosis, impaired glucose, depression, infertility, anemia
loss of muscle mass, weight gain. reduced or absent sexual desire,
erectile dysfunction (ED), shrinkage of testicles and penis,
fatigue, hot flashes, breast tenderness and growth of breast tissue (gynecomastia). – death by a thousand cuts.

Badger September 17, 2021 - 4:56 PM - 4:56 PM

All sounds good.

think first September 17, 2021 - 2:57 PM - 2:57 PM

Any form of castration will not prevent these acts from happening again. These people are broken. Perhaps they shouldn’t be released. Should they even keep their hands? how many chances should they be given? Perhaps there is a better way to deal with these individuals. I don’t have the answer but perhaps the words of Jesus will affect their actions.

Matthew 18:6
“But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.”

Dorothy September 17, 2021 - 2:58 PM - 2:58 PM

Should not be released at all let alone early. And if they must be released make that castration a total physical one.

Dr Jellyfinger September 17, 2021 - 3:17 PM - 3:17 PM

I think that when they are released they should be released at a specific remote location, at a specific time, on a specific date.
The details of location,date & time should be shared with the victim’s immediate family (or families) only, and when the pervert is released (kicked out of a car by authorities) they should immediately turn the radio up loud, speed away & not look back…. in order to not hear gunshots or screaming or see justice being done.

Future Catlady September 17, 2021 - 3:41 PM - 3:41 PM

This was done years ago on local offender Cary Verse – it did not work.

Dr Jellyfinger September 17, 2021 - 4:02 PM - 4:02 PM

It would work if they had me do the procedure.
I’d inject H2SO4 into the testes with a really big hypodermic needle.
That’ll learn him.

caskydiver September 17, 2021 - 3:47 PM - 3:47 PM

As much as I’d like to see that, I don’t think so. Prison and losing your freedom is the price paid for breaking the laws and, once satisfied, the debt to society is done. Other than capital punishment, I don’t believe in letting the gov’t decide who gets sterilized. Has potential for abuse of power.

American Citizen September 17, 2021 - 4:47 PM - 4:47 PM

Why not just shoot them? Save a whole lot of money and more than likely save another kid.

Well Folks September 17, 2021 - 6:06 PM - 6:06 PM

I say castrated them with a dull rusty serrated knife

Tim September 17, 2021 - 7:58 PM - 7:58 PM

Only if they want to get out of prison.

Ricardoh September 17, 2021 - 8:34 PM - 8:34 PM

Why chemically?

Aaron September 17, 2021 - 9:39 PM - 9:39 PM

There isn’t much evidence yet that it works, and usually it’s a tradeoff between chemical castration or more prison time. I’d rather they stay in prison.

Nope. Just shot on sight.

Just me September 18, 2021 - 1:57 PM - 1:57 PM

I second that!

Just me September 18, 2021 - 1:57 PM - 1:57 PM

Drawn and quartered, hung in the town square, or put in gen pop at the exact moment the cameras stop working and the guards are distracted are the only options there should be. A short stint in protective custody or probation is just a slap on the wrist and they will do it again. There is no rehabilitation or treatment that will fix them. The only way to stop them is to end them.

Gurro September 18, 2021 - 5:10 PM - 5:10 PM

I was castrated for telling my docotor i was put into a oven on yhe cleaning cycle and was burnt by the metal. That got me so much pain my whole life so the people or children who dont codone hurting children are being put into this but a monster wont be like awesome. Like really people this place is nuts

Janon September 18, 2021 - 9:47 PM - 9:47 PM

Life sentence. Maybe sickos would think twice before behaving like the devil.

Bob Kazamakis September 19, 2021 - 2:35 PM - 2:35 PM

However vile the crime, I still can’t find justification for this manner of punishment.
The punishment is entirely unjust, given the lack of due process when punishing for future crimes, not to mention the whole “cruel and unusual” aspect of it.
If the person is really perceived as such a threat of future crimes, then they shouldn’t be released. They should be either given a life sentence or executed.
Castration may appeal to craven emotions, but it’s still neither good nor just. Just pointlessly barbaric.
That’s not even saying anything of the people who are inaccurately convicted for this crime.
