    Looks matter in acting. If you were more the male model type. Having some fake ass teeth is not going to do wonders for your career. Someone with teeth like Little Richard isn't going to be headlining any silver screen movies that is for sure.

    I was referring to myself. How devastating this would be if it happened to me. Appearances do matter, and besides the drastic inconvenience removing someone's teeth can have an impact on their livelihood, career and romantic life. I know several people around my age who would not date someone if they knew the person wore dentures.

    You'd have "perfect" teeth, though. Every tooth straight and bright. The shape of your face would not change.

    Yes, and those people are shallow pieces of shit who should be kept far, far away from the gene pool.

    I offer up an alternate example of Robert Carlyle and other British/European/Canadian actors. I will admit that the US seems more fixated on looks than a lot of other film industries.

    That is an excellent filter for finding people not worth dating, since anyone who nixes a person because they wear dentures is not a person that I would want to date, and I have all my teeth.

    First time I heard about this story, it was someone going "ahahaha isn't that funny" - it's someone assaulting their ex when they were helpless, so I dunno, is it? Would it be funny is the bloke was the dentist and a woman was getting her teeth taken out?

    It's not funny either way. It's assault and no doubt that it would have been traumatic for the victim.

    The part that disturbs me is the people in the thread stating this is a crime that someone should be sentenced to for 15-30+ years, which is the range of US murder sentences based on this US statistic summary from 2000. This is clearly assault but is it equivalent to murder?

    That's a disturbing one, yeah. It should be longer but not at the equivalent of bloody murder.

    Well that just goes without saying.

    Murder charge is avregae 6-10 years here too liberal sweden. Rapes have become much more common since the rapist get 6 months-1 year in average.

    Which disgusts me and is a big shame. The only time i hope we had the too harsh legal system of US. Rapist must pay 15+ years to me.

    It depends on the year. The year i saw numbers like 40 charges that stuck of 2200 cases. There is also huge number that are not calling the police because the victims know they are blamed.

    Its a messed up system. Its a product of system that thinks every criminal can be saved. Even rapist who raped 8 women in few months.....

    The rape laws are infamous now because they are outdated to more peaceful, less crime times.

    And those stats entirely back his claim.

    Oh, by the way, rape is a problem in the military.

    * According to a 2004 study, 71% of female veterans seeking PTSD treatment had been raped or sexually assaulted (by other US military officers).
    * Another study showed that 90% of rapes in the military go unreported.
    * When they are reported, 62% of those found guilty of rape or abuse received “demotion, suspension, or a written reprimand” as punishment.

    So far to make your case you've...

    - Claimed to know what every rape victim thinks

    - Claimed every rape victim thinks the exact same thing

    - Claimed to know what I would believe or disbelieve

    - Threw in an avalanche of blatant red herrings.

    Being a labeled a rapist is about as bad of a stigma as there is, second only to being a child molester. Society as a whole holds pimps, car jackers and murderers in higher regard than rapists.
