If you want to get attention, just say "Sex Offender!"
I think we've all seen it--headlines shouting "sex offender" when the article had little to do with a registrant or registrants in general. It's the modern day version of, "If it bleeds, it leads." I may have identified the most egregious example of this ph...

The Public Sex Offender Registry--A Perpetual Shame
Amanda Hess has written a brilliant piece  about the re-emergence of public shaming using the tragic example of a father's punishment of his daughter. For disobeying a house rule, he filmed his cutting off her hair, chastising her all the while, and posted ...

On April 19, the New York
Times printed an article about the Bellevue Men’s Shelter and the

A Result of Sex Offender “Stranger Danger” Nobody Saw Coming
The entire sex offender registry—indeed, the
entire sex offender industry—is built around the concept of “stranger danger,”
the idea that children are at high risk of sexual assault from people they do
not know, strangers, people who have already sexually o...

Feminism? You gotta be kidding
If you party too hard, willingly go home with
someone to whom you are attracted, and continue drinking until the rest of the
evening is a blur but you have vague, foggy memories of sexual activity, you
are a victim of rape—if you are female. If you party to...

For sex offenders, not the way
Is the  New York Post  on a vendetta against those on the sex offender registry who are not breaking the law or in violation of requirements but are trying to find a place to live and get their lives back together? On April 19 they printed an article  about...

To Save One Child--Again
It has happened again. An airplane has crashed, killing
everyone on board, including quite a few children. This has happened too many
times in the past and must not be allowed to continue. Clearly it is time to

Are We Right to Encourage Hatred, Violence, Rape Against Sex Offenders?
Close your eyes and remember
the worst thing that ever happened to you. Maybe you lost a loved one in a

Hi there, I'm a sex offender
You may not know that, but you may know me. My son Billy is in third grade at Cooper Elementary. I drop him off and pick him up most days, and I have attended several of the parent days and parent lunches there with you. The superintendent has given me perm...

Homeless Ministry, Salvation Army get failing marks in treatment of those on the sex offender registry
First post of the new year, and my fury-level is high. I just read this: "True Vine Ministries on Morganton Road to offer shelter for homeless on 'white flag' nights." "White flag nights" are nights when the outside temperature in this part of North Carolin...
