I saw some people debating this on UG a while back, and thought I'd ask the Pit at large.
If the violence of one raises in proportion with the other, what's worse, being raped or being murdered? Why?
Poll incoming.

being murdered isnt as bad as being raped. because when youre raped, you gon get raped, but if youre murdered youre still gon get raped
#5
That's tough. Rape obviously has its fair share of unfortunate consequences, but being murdered means, obviously, that you'd be dead. It's obviously difficult to deal with rape and its long term effects, but at least they're alive, right? Being violated in the worst way sucks but at least you still have a chance to live your life... Not well, necessarily (not well for a very long time), but it's better than no life at all.

Raped. The victim has to live with that.

Rape isn't the end all result. You can still bring yourself up from the ruins. Murder is an end all result. Murder ends the life of someone who is cared for, they're not coming back, and they cannot have a second chance.

Might get shit for saying this, but I think it's kind of an overreaction to say Rape because people have to live and suffer with the psychological effects of it afterwards. People have gone on to live fulfilling and happy lives after being raped.

I think part of it is just the emotional disgust for rapists that creates bias in people's answers.

Who cares? If you're dead, you're dead. You can't even feel sad that you're no longer alive, because you're dead. Rape is the only choice where you personally feel the effects as the victim.

And plenty of people have overcome those effects to go onto live long fulfilling lives. People who are murdered don't get that chance.

Exactly. What's worse too, your family knowing you've been raped or your family living without one of them because they've been killed? There's more to this than just the victim as well.

Honestly, rape is horrible, but people have lived with far worse. Severe burn victims (especially those caused by drunk driving) have it FAR worse, as one of the many examples. Rape is terrible, but as someone said, it isn't the end-all.

Thank you. You'd think that people who've been raped are basket-cases unable to ever recover by the way it gets talked about in this forum.

Yeah, you don't feel sad after you're dead but that's not really relevant. I mean, is it alright if I kill you right now, since you won't care either way afterward? Generally it's human nature to want to continue to live, regardless of whether shitty stuff happens to you or not.

But you're dead, so it doesn't matter to you. You see what I'm saying? Life only matters when you're alive.

Of course I wouldn't want you to kill me, but that's only because I'm alive. But looking at this issue in retrospect, rape is worse for the victim than murder.

This is the way I see it. There's (probably) nothing there for you after you're dead, and I think it's best to try and heal yourself after rape than be dead. Not to mention the pain that all of your friends and family feel once you die, if you're murdered.

Not relevant to the thread, but you're my threadstarter hero and I made this thinking of you. You may interpret that as creepily as you wish.

I'd say murder, simply because people can bounce back from that. Not saying it's easy, that everyone does, or that rape isn't serious. But if someone is raped, there's opportunities for them to recover and lead a healthy life. Murder: you don't have a choice of whether or not to carry on.

thats how i feel about this thread. i honestly feel like its a bunch of nautical nonsense. if you were a rape victim and you honestly feel like you would rather be dead, then go kill yourself you ungrateful bitch. if you were killed at an age where you still had a life ahead of you, and god said you can come back to earth, on one condition, you gon get raped... idk how to finish that thought, actually...

bro, calm down. the point i was trying to make was if you were raped, and you would rather have been murdered, it would make less sense than if you were murdered and would rather have been raped.

why? im not really thinking out my posts today, im on a horrible mood.
i can see some rape victoms wanting to kill themselves, but there are many that went on to live fulfilling lives. i dont believe these two topics should be compared at all. being killed is something that doesnt have much room for variation in levels of how bad it was. rape does. it can be raped by a person you are dating, or a complete stranger in the park. it can be insanely brutal and it can be just scary.
why you mad bro?
