mawhhahhahaa *evil laugh* hopefully soon it’ll reach critical mass where ever 1 out of 2 is a register sex offender…
With the new laws and complete stupidity it may come to the point where masterbation is going to be completely illegal and a violent act..

Not surprising if the registry is for life. Pretty soon it will be 1 out of every 1 is a registered SO since more people get added every day, nobody leaves the registry, and the type of offenses that qualify as SO offenses are ever increasing……good job to keep everyone safe (sarcasm).

“One in every three black males born today can expect to go to prison at some point in their life, compared with one in every six Latino males, and one in every 17 white males,” These are among the many pieces of evidence cited by the Sentencing Project in 10/2013.

This is absurd of course! Rape someone, sexually torture someone (without consent that is) then fine…punish away and unless the person is shown to be a habitual predator then once they pay the price it is paid – let them move on.

I don’t know a single guy in the world who could NOT be placed on this STUPID list in it’s present form. Every guy is a “sex offender” somewhere from pissing in an alley, mooning someone in a public park, and so much more BUT are those really sex offenders – the clear answer is NO.

@Tired of Hiding – Sexual torture is just that, sexual torture, and it is not something one can consent to. Please be more careful with your comments in the future. California RSOL does not condone sexual torture and similar comments in the future will not be posted on this site.

Janice, I was CLEARLY referring to BDSM and using hyperbole to illustrate the point of how wide these “laws” go in defining what is made criminal and therefore punishable with the label of RSO.

I am perfectly aware of what you state and only taken WAY out of context could my statement be an indorsement for sexual torture.

However, I do not work for California RSOL and my statements are my own. I have had statements NOT posted on the site before so it would not be the first time nor does it hurt my feelings when they are not.

I speak my mind and not everyone agrees or even likes what I have to say. I do find however, that I can look myself in the mirror at the end of the day because I do express myself and since I have not been stripped of ALL of my rights I still exercise freedom of speech so censor away.

Happy Holidays!

I think I understood Tired of Hiding’s point, I think it was the wording that could have been better. He was agreeing that someone convicted of rape or sexual torture does deserve to be punished via the judicial system, but the punishment should not extend beyond prison and parole such as it does now.

I believe this number is approximately the same for California males on Registry. It really is becoming absurd! I wonder if the cops who do compliance checks are themselves on the Registry ! LOL!
BTW, Bluewall, in olden days, masturbation was referred to as “self abuse”, so yeah, let’s add it to the unending list of S.O.s!

On a serious note, a more liberal jurist has been nominated to replace CA Supreme Court Justice Baxter who retires early next month. Hopefully, we could get some rational relief in future legal cases.

Just ran some quick numbers and I believe it works out to about 1 in 180 here in California… based on:

Population approximately 38 million
Male population roughly around 18 million (49.7%)
Approximately 100,000 registered citizens

I have a hard time believing that statistic. I don’t know what kind of awareness this will spawn, but likely that shortly thereafter a bottom feeding politician will morph and statistic into campaigns that will help their election, re-election or otherwise feed off the state dole as a career criminal – Oops; I meant to say Career Politician!

While I’m caught up in all this internet sex sting stuff I know its wrong as there is no bases in all this. Even the logic thinking of these stings is not even there.
These stings are suppose to protect teenagers. Now common sense says if police are going to protect teenagers they should set up there operations in teenage chat rooms as that is who they are suppose to be protecting.
There is only one reason that an adult would go into a teenage chat room. It really makes no sense when people are put on the registry for the rest of there life’s after doing there time or probation or what have you. While sex is a hot subject there are many not only in Virginia but all over the USA getting entangled in all this. I would think there are more on the registry than those that had actual victims or pretty close.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
