I have signed, but could the thread name be corrected to "Corrective Rape"?

This is truly dreadful. I don't like Avaaz much, for a variety of reasons, (not all of which are important), but I signed anyway, on this occasion.

Oops! Dunno how that happened, or how to fix it. But yes, of course the word should be 'corrective'.

Whoever came up with the bizarre notion that a gang rape would make men more attractive? [rhetorical Q]

Those kind of men are not concerned with being attractive. They have a gang mentality and only care about how their gang members percieve them. They are ignorant, which is a common trait for bullies. And bullies are always cowards when they use their strength against those who are smaller and/or weaker than they are.

Done, but I've not bothered to change the individual replies.

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?
