“CREEPER would do nothing to reduce the number of sex offenders in the community. It would do the opposite. Apart from instantly creating a whole new class of child sex offenders out of those who buy these dolls, it may also deprive non-offending pedophiles of one of their only legal sexual outlets, and perhaps drive some of them towards more harmful methods of sexual gratification.
The CREEPER Act’s preamble makes a number of untested scientific claims about sex dolls, such as that they “normalize sex between adults and minors” and “cause the exploitation, objectification, abuse, and rape of minors.” These assertions rely on the cherry-picked opinions of one expert, but they ignore or contradict the testimony of a growing number of other experts who disagree.
We should also consider whether criminalizing the possession of a latex doll would be consistent with U.S. constitutional values. In 2002, the Supreme Court ruled that it was unconstitutional for the government to impose a blanket ban on the possession of sexualized images of minors in virtual or cartoon form. Since these too can be used by pedophiles as a substitute for images of actual children being abused, experts have supported pedophiles having access to them. It’s hard to see how dolls are any different.”
Thanks to feinmann0, for this.
Until we find a way to get predators like Daniel Donovan [and his twelve cosponsors] out of government, and keep them out…we are going to continue devolving down this endless cycle, of relentless harassment and malicious criminalization aimed at MAPs.
It’s crazy…because I never anticipated getting into a fight, over something as ridiculous as purchasing and owning a sex doll…But this has quickly evolved into a battle, that must be fought and won…Because they are picking this fight, and we must put our foot down before they push this so far, that even criminalizing being a “pedophile” starts to seem reasonable to the average person…This endless targeting, must be brought to an end.
This is no longer about public protection…Someone with a masturbation aid, in the privacy of their own home, poses no concern to public protection…
Any sex toy can serve the same “dreaded” purpose…as anybody can fantasize about “sex acts with a child” [or even violent rape and murder], while using that sex toy…no matter what type of sex toy it is.
On what grounds do these “representatives” propose, to fail criminalizing all forms of sex toy?
If you are going to legally connect sex toys with criminal thought [or thought crimes]…then there is no rational barrier.
So…what of “pedophiles” who buy “adult” sex dolls…but still fantasize about being with a child, while having sex with that “adult” doll?…
…What’s the difference?
I’ve seen enough of the sex toy industry…to know that when you buy even one of those cheap, blow up sex dolls…they’re often a fair bit smaller, than an average sized adult human…Why would they be legally protected?
The aim of these types of proposed laws, are to force certain segments of the population into government institutions [IE: prisons], and under mandated government control…It’s a public form of ruthless ostracism [and banishment], for people who “think in icky ways”.
They’ve been chipping around the edges of this, for decades…
…If they don’t like you for the way you are, or for the way you think and speak, yet you are not violating any laws…they find legal things you are statistically likely to do, and criminalize those…Anything to tip the scale, and force you into the status of “being a criminal”…so they can lay siege upon you.
That is what this is ultimately about.
