The right wing league proposed a chemical castration bill on sex offenders

The right wing league in the Italian government proposed a bill to castrate sex offenders with consent as a condition for parole  in order to prevent women from being sexually assaulted as numbers are rising.

The bill aka ”Codice Rosso” is expected to come back to the chamber of deputies on Tuesday as it was suspended on Thursday when opposition MPs occupied the seats in protest.

The political Five Star party  rejected the proposal, they also disagree over some details of revenge porn being made a crime.

The five star government is saying that castrating  rapist  would not be a solution but that they should think about putting them in jail.

“The topic is so sensitive that it requires wide debate not only in parliament, but also judicial and social, above all involving experts, victims, families, analysts, jurists and all the relevant state actors, like the post and telecoms police. It’s a very important issue, so serious regulation must not be incomplete,” said  Giulia Sarti a member of the five star party who was recently a victim of revenge porn as she wants effective laws against it.

Revenge porn  is a sensitive topic wherein a 31 year old woman  took her life straight after her sex tape got to the public.

Research shows most women in Italy are reluctant to address the topic especially the women who have been victims. sexual abuse can be destructive to the mental health and your career path in general.

Italian women protested against gender violence on 8th March as Italy’s ruling populist coalition have clashed over a major new bill to tackle sender violence.

Countries such as Poland, Russia and Moldova have made chemical castration compulsory for certain sex offenders.
