Arousal Reconditioning — Originally developed in the early to mids to convert homosexuals to heterosexuals. Attempts to eliminate sexual feelings by pairing them with boredom, pain, or unpleasantness. Parents, warn your sons!! What you may think is normal underage sexual activity historically left to parents to correct and teach is currently grounds for very serious felony sex offender convictions, registration as a sex offender for life as young as 14, and forced sex offender "treatment"!!
With respect to your article on "America's unjust sex laws. I admit until recently these laws didn't challenge my belief system, however, a friend of my child's father, was arrested for growing marijuana and the amount grown fell into of the parameters of personal use and since he could not provide them with names of "dealers", police confiscated his computer and then charged him with possession of child pornography to trump up the charges and hold it over his head get a conviction.
He maintains his innocence being that it was not "child pornography" but just pornography. Unable to afford an attorney, he pleaded out to possession of controlled substance and possession of child pornography. This all took place in a small town in Texas. If he wants to see his children or the outside of a cell, he has to live with the label of "Sex Offender. Not to get off point, whether he is guilty or innocent, this falls into a hostile maneuver which can be used to keep the good ol Texas jail system movin and groovin.
I'm not one to take up on the rights of people who prey upon children, but I do take offense to the mockery of our justice system and laws which overreact to public opinion in the names of innocent children for a quick answer to justice for these victims. I am a victim of abuse and I am also the mother of a young man who had consensual sex with an underage girl. Unlike myself the girl in my sons case did not reject him, say no, cry or make any gesture to suggest she did not want to have sex.
It minimizes the crimes involving True victims. They are no more a victim than Priscilla Presley was when she moved in with Elvis and his family at Elvis Presley would have been a sex offender by todays laws. My son was the second young man filed on for having sex with the same girl.
My son now has a son and has never been allowed to hold him,kiss him or be with him. My son is no danger to anyone. There is no differentiation and this is so sad. My grandson will be humiliated, made fun of, never have birthday parties with friends and he too will wear the label of child of a sex offender.
The general public will never understand that my son is not a monster thanks to the media. Most victims are abused by a family member or a family friend. We are paying lots of money to monitor those who should not be monitored.
Our resources and monies can be better spent on those who are truly dangerous. How is it that a juvenile can committ a murder and tried as an adult, but cannont committ to sex because they are too young. I would rather my grandkids have sex than murder someone. HOw is it that a school, planned parenthood can hand out condoms to minors, but it is illegal for them to have sex? OUr lawmakers are so screwed up and they are ruining lives of many with thesse idiotic laws that they have written.
When reading the article and the comments I get a clear impression that U. It would also be rational to make a psychological evaluation of sex offenders before release and enforce chemical castration on offenders with a risk of recidivism. To reduce the risks for our children we should accept that pedophiles have a mental disturbance.
For every child molester monster there is another that struggle to suppress his perverse desires. The monstrosity of child porn and child rape has been used by bigot political activists as a way to suppress and stigmatize normal sexual behavior.
One example is the agenda of the anti child porn organization Ecpat. They want to raise the age of consent world-wide to 18 and they want to classify all porn with models younger than 18 as child porn.
They also want to ban possession of child porn which is OK for real child porn and convict persons possessing child porn as sex offenders. That means that a significant part of normal porn models slightly under 18 will be illegal and s of normal porn surfers will be made felons and sex offenders.
Ecpat and many others also want to convict normal teenagers who cross the age barrier in the wrong way as sex offenders with a life time stigma attached.
This is utterly bizarre. There is nothing wrong with teenagers having consenting sex. Not even if one party is ten years older.
A global perspective should be refreshing. The age of consent in the US 16, 17, 18, depending on state is far from the global norm. Age Germany, almost the entire Latin America. Austria, Iceland, Portugal, China, and many other countries.
Fixitrob - "harsher penalties for Level 3 offenders" I am not condoning consensual sexual promiscuity between young peers, but this needs to be left to parenting, not prosecuted as a felony sex offense with life time sex offender registration. The current legislation, although very well intended, has seriously failed the true victims and their families of violent sexual assault crimes! A country with such draconian laws regarding personal freedom as pertains to consensual sex between two underage partners has no right lecturing others about freedom, or have any place being a superpower.
This statement applies to a host of problems plaguing America and is why nothing will be done on this or any of those other issues. Nobody is debating that severe punishment can be appropriate in the case of severe crimes death penalty debate put aside. There is no need for blind rage.
My initial knee-jerk reaction to the article's title was similar to the one described there: how can we NOT have strict laws. But I admit that I did not know about the actual definitions that are growing to encompass more and more "offenders" where it is not necessary. I think this is the point here: the proportion might be larger than you think, and growing every year due to newer and stricter laws. As a mother I am horrified that there might be a serious sex offender roaming the streets.
But at the same time, I want to cut through the clutter and not be worried about the "" offenders that might turn up in the search, whereas I am only concerned with "the one". This reminds me of the terrorist watch list and people who are placed on there erroneously.
Some say that the "small portion of inconvenienced people" is justified by the overall increased security and reduced risk. But is it truly so? What about the undercover stings that reveal serious security breaches?
Time and money is being spent on useless, inefficient, and ineffective initiatives while the real threat still lurks. Knowing someone who was wrongly tagged, makes you a bit more supportive of better record keeping. I am sure it is not all doom and gloom as the article may make it sounds, but this ever growing way of dealing with the problem through legislature has got to be put under control.
Eliminate the mess and make it as clear as possible where the dangers are, so that parents can make a safe and informed choice, law enforcement forces can do their job and keep the public safe, and we are protected instead of living in fear. Thank you for such a truthful and enlightening article. Unless the person living next to me is deemed by psychological professionals to be a potential risk there is no reason for me to know anything about him. Sex offenders rarely re-offend and most commit crimes against children they are familiar with family members, babysitters, family friends, etc.
If I am going to hire a babysitter or entrust my child to someone, I would like the opportunity to do a thorough background investigation, but otherwise there is no reason for me to know anything about him.
I don't get to know how many times the drug dealer across the street has been arrested, or that the guy down the street has been convicted of a DUI yet they pose mroe of a risk to my children and family then the sex offender next door. By some of the comments left here it is clear that people need to spend more time thinking for themselves instead of letting media do it for them.
Do some googling, a little research, discover for yourself where the real risk to you children lies. Only then can you truly protect them.
Don't wait for the government to protect your children. Educate yourself and protect them pro-actively instead of waiting for a crime to happen. OK Mukame WHY such a severe sentence when the "mature adult" that we trusted our young men with in school, gets a little probation???
There is no rhyme or reason to these laws!! They are a sign of the corruption that America has fallen prey to in the recent past 8 years!! Honest Opinion wrote: August 13, " www. Slaute's point about gender descrimintaion is well-taken As Hermitter rightly stated in a much earlier post in this article, the "witch hunt" must stop That judge is surely not an unbiased member of the law community!
Fallen One: I would like to see your data that sex offenders have the lowest rate of recidivism of any crime. I have always heard just the opposite. Please provide. However, the article is on point. Americans love to be afraid of things that make sensational nightly news reports but that, statistically, are almost certain to never happen to them.
