01) Kids on the Sex Offender Registry

“The headlines today are full of stories of righteous indignation over immigrant children being separated from their families. While that dilemma is certainly newsworthy, the American public seems largely unaware of the fact that tens of thousands of our own children are being taken from their families each year and tossed into a rapacious legal system that chews them up and spits them out as sex offenders. As hard as it may be to believe, The Department of Justice estimates that there are at least 89,000 children on the sex offender registry, and it should come as no surprise to anyone that it’s destroying their lives.

Imagine, for a moment, what it would be like to have your child listed publicly on the sex offender registry, complete with a photograph, home address, and even a description of the sex crime that resulted in his (or her) inclusion on the list. Consider what kind of life your child would have if, because of sex offender restrictions, he couldn’t attend school, go to a park or swimming pool, or have a birthday party because other children will be there. Some states simultaneously have laws requiring minors to attend school while at the same time forbidding sex offenders from being anywhere near a school. 44% of sex offenders overall (and presumably juvenile sex offenders, as well) are unable to live with their supportive families due to residency restrictions. Many are forced into foster care, even as bills have been introduced to bar juvenile sex offenders from foster homes and other communal youth facilities.”

The SOR [sex offender register] is absolutely bankrupt of integrity and all ethical standing, at this point.

The TAP-Net Radar is becoming a sort of de facto place to share information about systems abusive towards human sexuality, which I want tethered to something a bit more structured…so they don’t get lost in everything else…

You’d be shocked how hard it can be to find things on this blog, if you don’t know specific titles or phrases to search for.

This is a large reason why the “sub-blogs” exist…They tie together a lot of related material.

Strictly speaking…this article doesn’t absolutely belong here…but it’s still relevant and important…It contains some good links.

Just thought I’d acknowledge the spreading out of this series.

There’s a lot of rarely shared information in this article…You should read it…It’s uncommonly good.

    Pink Floyd lyrics and concept in The Wall, neatly sums up the totalitarian regime that defines US law enforcement: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvPpAPIIZyo&list=RDfvPpAPIIZyo&index=1

    “In ‘An Inquiry into the Original of Our Ideas of Beauty and Virtue’ (1725), Francis Hutcheson says when choosing the most moral action, virtue is in proportion to the number of people a particular action brings happiness to. In the same way, moral evil, or vice, is proportionate to the number of people made to suffer. The best action is the one that procures the greatest happiness of the greatest numbers—and the worst is the one that causes the most misery.:”

    It is not difficult to guage where on the happiness to despair scale, the effect of US law enforcement dictatorship has on the children across the nation.

    Another notable figure from that era was Jeremy Bentham who attempted to introduce a utilitarian code of law during the late 18th Century, a code designed to procure the greatest happiness to the greatest numbers of people. “His essay Paederasty (Offences Against One’s Self) argued for the liberalisation of laws prohibiting homosexual sex. Bentham does not believe homosexual acts to be unnatural, describing them merely as ‘irregularities of the venereal appetite’. The essay chastises the society of the time for making a disproportionate response to what Bentham appears to consider a largely private offence – public displays or forced acts being dealt with rightly by other laws.”

    I often think of “Brick in the Wall”, when I see these types of news stories…and the people behind pushing these agendas.

    My personal, mental spin on it, is to change the lyrics to…”All in all you’re just another, prick with no balls”.

    “In ‘An Inquiry into the Original of Our Ideas of Beauty and Virtue’ (1725), Francis Hutcheson says when choosing the most moral action, virtue is in proportion to the number of people a particular action brings happiness to. In the same way, moral evil, or vice, is proportionate to the number of people made to suffer. The best action is the one that procures the greatest happiness of the greatest numbers—and the worst is the one that causes the most misery.:”

    I would have to question, in regards to human sexuality…how on earth anything I would naturally be inclined to do sexually, even could cause suffering to anybody at all, anywhere, at any time.

    That’s a good quote.

    “It is not difficult to guage where on the happiness to despair scale, the effect of US law enforcement dictatorship has on the children across the nation.”

    I suggest the hopelessness, aimlessness and heavy suicide [as well as mental illness] rates among youth and young adults, is likely tied to this…and all that the government/society imposes upon people. Many just cant cope with what is happening to them…and see no reason to live in a world like this.

    I’ll take a look at that last link…thanks.
