Please participate in SORS (Sex Offense Registry Study)

[] [Note from Janice: I can attest that this is a legitimate study]

We are looking for research participants who can help us learn about important issues related to sex offense registries. We are collecting anonymous information from people required to register.

WHO?  You are eligible to participate in this study If you are 18 or older, and are required to register on a sex offender registry in the United States.

Please complete the survey using this link:

HOW?  The survey is conducted online and will take 20-30 minutes to complete. Survey information is completely anonymous and confidential. You will never be asked to provide your name or contact information, and there is no way of connecting your personal information to your responses.

Please complete the survey using this link:

ABOUT: The goals of this study are to (a) describe demographics including racial and ethnic groups, gender, socioeconomic status, and the experiences of LGBTQ+ people on registries, (b) describe the pathways leading people to registration and issues involving the criminal justice system, and (c) describe the consequences of registration to the health and well-being of people required to register. We aim to inform policymakers about pathways leading to registration, and the impact of registries on the people required to register.

The question, “On your birth certificate, was your sex assigned as female or male,” is homophobic and misogynist.

I can’t take anything seriously that takes trans-anything seriously. “Assigned” male or female? Give me a flippen’ break.

Bigger issue here would be the collateral consequences…how this has affected not only the registrants daily life but the consequences of those lives of anyone holy connected to the registrant when they were not involved in anyway but are not suffering severely. This needs to be greatly addressed.

If they want to know about the fear I live in when going to job interviews, or the daily anxiety I have wondering if somebody at work will stumble upon my name on the internet and out me, and the fear I feel every time a supervisor wants to talk to me, or the stress I experience trying to rent an apartment, or the distress I have when I meet a woman who shows interest in me and then I have to figure out how to address the registry issue with her, or the fear I have that people in my complex will out me to the wrong person and I might get a rock through the window in the middle of the night, and of course the unannounced visits by police in full bullet proof regalia coming to my door and all the neighbors looking out to see what is gong on; and lets not forget the anxiety that sets in every time some low IQ, uninspired politician is up for reelection and they decide to pass a law that punishes and humiliates me just to garner a few votes; If the survey wants to address those issues, well I’ll be happy to talk about that.

But if they are asking questions about trans people and gender identification and birth certificates and such then I get a queasy feeling that this is just some agenda driven SJW ploy, not really about the trauma and damage all of us on the registry are subject to. There is just too much of the PC garbage going around. No disrespect to other individuals, but this registry is destroying people and families and I don’t appreciate it being used for political agendas. I need more clarification to legitimize this.

Done. Hope this does some good the future.

I completed their survey and appreciate the entire depth of what they’re seeking as reflected in the questions asked. I think that the entire group here in this forum could be very helpful in giving them data.

I took it as well.

I took the survey. It wasn’t hard. I support anything that helps us tell our story. Hiding in a hole never helped me in the past. This is one small thing I can do to get the story out.

Okay, I took the survey…it wasn’t too bad, (by that I mean in design). There were a few concerns I had…time between offense and conviction was not recognized…and this could be considerable…and other things, but I will leave those alone and simply say that the survey was certainly worth taking and in the main legitimate. My complaint above was wrong, or wrong headed.

Of course, the fact that I still think my behavior relatively normal…and situational, meaning not likely to reoccur…well. That’s done. (Oh, if you can’t answer the question, as I couldn’t on 4 or 5, it seemed better to skip than give a guessed at answer)

Good Luck and Best Wishes, James I

I completed the survey, and hope that it will help.

One big problem with this though…

We are the lucky ones – we are registered persons who have internet access and can complete surveys like this. What’s the plan to reach out to the large number of registered persons who are not permitted to access the internet and will never even know that this survey exists?

The situation people living with more severe restrictions than all of us here is certainly going to be different. Without their input, the results of the survey will be flawed and represent only a portion of the intended population.

I hope you all fight!!! Once you PAY for your crime. Don’t let them add a dime. What i am saying is that the lawmakers will add little things to laws. Sometimes hidden things. So watch out for that.

The cornhole virus is stealing all the toilet paper. This is crazy!

I am a little troubled by the study. It claims to be anonymous yet it asks plenty of questions including my zip code. It is a series of questions that a first year college student could connect. My recommendation is that if you are going to perform anonymous studies, please try to support our anonymity

Why are people who are listed on a very public hit list worried about anonymity? I really don’t understand that. Unless you want to say something illegal. But just don’t do that.

Personally, I said some crazy stuff on the survey. It is crazy enough that ACSOL won’t let me say it here. But it’s okay because it is not illegal and there is nothing wrong with it. I’m not concerned about anonymity and I’ll say it to anyone who will listen.

I’ve told the criminal regimes a thousand times that their Registries make me dangerous. They don’t care. They are getting their jollies and have no concern about reality or the true effects. Registry Supporters/Terrorists (RS/Ts) don’t care that Registries do nothing useful and they don’t care that innocent people are harmed every day. As long as things don’t affect them personally, they don’t care. They care about how they feel.

In this life at times of our life one has to take good with the bad in many things that advance in life. Talk about a Taming of the Shrew contra-virus gone bad in many ways.

dun answering questions , not a lab rat , every time I see this one person come on here banging on about something that will help 1000’s if we do this or that I know it must be bad for “someone”, oh hey I have a great idea lets play patty cake with LE ! give a bunch of info they have zero rights too , gee this tier system will be awesome 1000’s will get off ////”And added to” get under the bus and welcome to level 3 ,and 3’s life just life ,

The first time I touched base with Janice was back in 2014 with the CA RSOL and still we all strive and press on with this registry. Sure surveys are good and yes choices are good and even decisons are good or should we all agree to disagree. This registry is upsetting to all as Will and many more on here have said even with this labeling nonsense.

Sure at times registry study’s are good to understand the logical staticial formula to get to a base structure. Its just like the product demonstrations I use to do with in-store demo’s and promotions to collect feedback survey’s on product brands. Sure I can understand why some would have mixed reviews on a survey such as this. The bible tells man all they need to know and to be of good cheer as well or are we all carnal by nature.

Janice is taking a good step and so is her crew or team. Sure if one can help their fellow man than its all good. One thing that caught my eye as I look at many posts is someone that said the word overreach and yes government is doing a lot of overreach in many of these sex ordeals. Keep up the good fight.

Okay. Did it, done! 👍
