“Soft White Underbelly interview and portrait of Frankie, a convicted sex offender from the west coast of Florida.”
Hard to tell where to put this one…
…But I think this interview is an important watch.
I feel like I should type out some thoughts…I’m just not really feeling like doing so, right now.
It’s unfortunate that the system ultimately got into his head…and you’ll understand what I mean, near the end…Otherwise, this is actually a really interesting, very honest interview.
It ends on a bad note, I was really hoping it would avoid…but then, it probably would not have been published otherwise…”Have to give the people their expectations”, after all.
I don’t know this guy…Maybe he did violate some principle I would find critical…Maybe he was overly aggressive in finding sexual companionship at a young age…
…It just…I know there has got to be a better way to intervene [if it was such a problem in the first place], than sending them to prison and putting someone on a register.
Is this a case which honestly warranted such?
I know I cannot provide any kind of character witness for Frankie…But I also know humans well enough, to say that he does not carry himself as though he is burdened by deep shame…not for the simple sex acts…and I have to question whether or not, there even was anything there which warranted shame…or demanded an apology…
…It sounds like Frankie was taken advantage of…at least by the 13 year old hustler…
I’m glad he is able to talk about it openly…matter of fact…
People should understand…these are also the kinds of people and cases, which get destroyed by the system for the “crime” of “being a pervert”…
…Am I placing too much faith and grace into Frankie?…I don’t know…
…But I do know, that is not someone who strikes me as deserving what the state and society did to him.
There are good people who end up in these exact situations…Frankie may very well be one of those people.
In addition, I’m glad Frankie talked about a real danger to BoyLovers…That being, hustler boys who are literally only out to seduce and blackmail.
This is a real thing…BoyLovers have been devastated, by what these types of boys did to them.
