    It you don't know, I'm not sure what you should do. Honestly, it never even occurred to me to put "I don't know" as a response.

    Do you think I should add that in the future?

      it's that I don't understand why someone would rape another person. Committing such an act isn't something I can wrap my brain around.

      As to adding anything, I suppose it depends on the intent of your poll. If you are looking for gut instinct answers 'I don't know' would give people an easy out as it were.

        I'll consider it for next week's poll.

        I get what you mean about not being able to wrap your head around rape. When I was a young teenager and they were teaching us how to be safe and protect ourselves from rape I actually had to ask my mom how anyone could be raped. I was taught that sex was something that happened between two people that loved each other and it didn't make sense that you could have sex if that love wasn't there first. Pretty naive of me but you know what you are taught.

          It seems like the idea is to repeat the questions from a previous poll to make comparisons.

          Adding choices will make it difficult to make side by side comparisons of the percentage who gave each response.

          "Jersey_Boy" was taken.
