This is about the sex offender registry and how there are some cases in which some people are who are a “sex offender” are being punished way too harshly. I’m just gonna leave to the link to this article here. It can explain everything better than I can.

Maybe an unpopular opinion, but I think that both of the people in the examples got the punishment they deserved.

We really don’t need to be lightening up on child sex offenders.

Here’s a quote from the article:


“Shawna was deemed to be a sexual predator after pleading guilty to having consensual sex with a 14-year-old boy when she was 19.”

Sex with a 14 year old is not consensual. Disturbing stuff!

Really? Sounds like two high school kids. :?

Clearly they both deserve to have their lives ruined, one with legal consequences, the other with guilt.

A 19 year old is an adult. A 14 year old certainly is not. 5 years make a huge difference.

Would people feel the same way if the genders were reversed here?

It's not enough to act like a reasonable Romeo and Juliet law wouldn't ensure they're protected from being treated as a rapist for the rest of their life. That's absolutely heinous.

She is a rapist.

5 years is too long for a decent Romeo and Juliet law.

Most states have 0-4 year Romeo and Juliet laws.

I appreciate that's how you feel but I strongly disagree. Your opinion isn't going to alter mine because I consider your opinion reprehensible.

It's basically a high school senior dating a high school freshman. It happens all the time. There should be some legal leeway if both teens are still in school and still living with the parents.

19 year olds have usually graduated and are in college or have a full-time job.

It doesn’t really matter. A 19 year old is legally an adult.

A bit like a 90 year old dating an 85 year old.

I was not aware that women could be pedophiles as on the news programmes it is only men who can be classed as pedophiles as classing women as pedophiles is sexism.

Geez Louise, I’m glad I bought wine.

Yes, pedophilia is not exclusively a boy’s club.
