@mara if we could hang or castrate sex offenders we would be much better off,but the left wing,green liberal fools of this world would all be very upset if we did that,but seem quite happy that rapist and child molesters are free to roam around!! Women must be respected and protected,dont forget every mans mother was a woman!!!

HASHIMI Those movies are fantasy and have nothing to do with reality. Do you also believe that their is a giant mouse with red shorts running around in the World? Or a guy who flies on a magic carpet and grants three wishes? It is called entertainment, not reality.

Respond to mar mcglothin: I didn't said this sentence but I said these movies will increase or encourage people to make the crime.

HASHIMI Okay so male dominance over women. Notice I didn't say Turkish. I am talking about universally. It is about power not about unfulfilled sexual desire like you implied. Men watch movies and they get the wrong idea. This was your statement, maybe I have misunderstood. So you implied that MEN are weak and cannot control themselves when a women is in the room. Very ridiculous to me.

Respond to mar mcglothin: The sex crimes are related to whole humans not Turkish only. However, no need for the power to do the crime because anyone can hold the knife.

HASHIMI It is proven that sex crimes are not about sex, but about power, and once again you are implying that Turkish men are soo weak that they cannot control themselves??? Very amusing.

The reason is increasing adultery movies and pictures with less chances of marriages that force some people to do the crime.

MISTIQUE HOLLAND You are correct to a certain point, but where else in the Free World can you marry a twelve year old with parental consent? Not in the Netherlands or anywhere else in the West NOT even in the Catholic Church, and those marriages don't even come up on the radar as "abuse". I imagine better reporting is part of this, but also the remarks by the esteemed PM that led men to believe that women are not equal is also a problem, MS SAHIN has also expressed backward views.

The only thing is , that Turkey like more Islamic countries have tried to hide crimes like these against woman, man and children and even animals. As if these things can't happen in Turkey!! But now people are making these crimes public and that is a good thing. So we can take measures against criminals who make these sick violations...But please please don;t think they only happen to islamic woman and that there husbands like to cover them in Burka. European/cristian/jewish people are no better
