Halloween and the Sex Offender Myth: Part I (Updated with Part II)

Part II (October 23):

Part I (October 19): I often wonder why we don’t dress our kids up as sex offenders. We dress them up as serial killers, witches, goblins, and other horrible monsters. We let our little girls dress up in fishnet stockings, short skirts, and heavy makeup. My own child wants to be a fallen angel. What is a fallen angel but a devil?

At first, the sex offender comment makes me a big jerk, highly offensive, yet if one calms down and thinks about it, why do we celebrate Halloween at all? And why are sex offenders worse than serial killers?

Isn’t Halloween about death? In our culture, people don’t die. They pass away. They depart. Or they come back to life as monsters. Making children monsters and zombies has a way of beautifying death, making it more fun and childish. Then there is the myth of the monster sex offender. Full Article

From Patch… “We publish sex-offender maps because people deserve to know whether they live near someone like Turner who’s preyed on the most vulnerable.”

So where are all the registries for other offenses that do the same? Why don’t Patch pur together that ingo or campaign to make them exist? Things like..Child abusers (physical, emotional, neglect), animal abusers, DUIs where someone got hurt, domestic violence, etc.

There are several states that also have registries first other crimes, like domestic abusers, animal abusers, etc..

Trying to call out why aren’t others registered doesn’t help our cause. No one should be required to register as the registries don’t protect anyone.

Of course you are correct that Registries are stupid but there are no legitimate excuses that the other national, public, lifetime Registries don’t exist. That alone is 100% proof that the $EX Offender Registries ($ORs) aren’t really for public safety, protecting children, or the rest of their lies. Complete proof. If $ORs were actually useful or for public safety, the U.S. would have enacted national, public, lifetime Gun Offender Registries about 2 decades ago. But they didn’t because $ORs are counterproductive, worse-than-worthless nonsense. That is just one example. And what really exposes Registry Nazis/Terrorists (RN/Ts) for the liars that they… Read more »
