Various points taken (what Rapparee, no Scientologists?).

I agree that power can bring out the abuser latent among us.

BUT.

I think more research should be done on the very point I raised. Does institutionalizing celibacy result in derangement of what otherwise would be normal drives. Look at what happens in prisons. Much of the rape that occurs there is among heterosexuals.

I remember a scene from a cop show I saw years ago. A cop is beating the crap out of a wreck of a guilt-riddled molester. The molester is barely able to get the words out: "YOU'RE WORSE than me! I can't help what I do, but YOU CAN!"
