Well, there are quite a few points I take issue with you in your reaction. I don't have the time to go through it right now, but I will say one thing about something you said, that punishment or the death penalty doesn't deter crime, that is so wrong. We may not agree with it, but in Egypt, women can expect to walk safely home and not be attacked or raped because of the strict laws there. Also, I wasn't necessarily making this an SGA vs. FGA issue. And I was not saying for FGAs not to accept responsibility. I feel that you have missed quite a lot of the points I was trying to make.
