Does it actually matter whether a pedophile is having sex with little girls or little boys?  The physical but moreover psychological injuries to either are just as severe.

But to answer your question: pedophilia is a crime about exerting power and control, just like rape.  Being gay or straight has nothing to do with it, because sexual orientation isn't a justification for crime.

Im not saying being gay contributes to them being a pedo, but if they are farking boys they are by definition GAY. Male on male=gay regardless of age.

Defining homosexuality as simply "putting tab a in hole a" regardless of the circumstances is offensive.  Homosexuality is not defined solely by anal sex.  Your mistake is qualifying the rape of a child as a sexual act, when in truth it's an act of violence, rage and an exertion of power over someone.  There is no question that SOME pedophiles may also be homosexual, but to say that all men who rape underage male children are gay is ridiculous.

Uh oh, someone doesn't know what sexuality is.


Uh oh, someone doesn't know what rape is.

No...just that some times those that appear  to be vehemently against something can have a tendency to  be covering something up.
That seems especially true with sexual predilections.

I have nothing against with laws protecting children against those that wish to harm them.  But that's not what this is about.   Sex offences are a whole spectrum of offences.   Not just those against children.
Someone could  murder a child and drive around schools with indication on their license plates, but someone who pees on a bush in a public park can be potentially stigmatized for the rest of their lives.

Egoy3k: Mugato:now I sound like a sex offender supporter, great

That's the problem with these sorts of laws, fighting them is political suicide.   None of the sober thought required for good governance actually gets done because nobody wants to see attack ads about how they voted to support pedophiles.


This. Same reason laws ratchet up against DUI or drug users. Nobody wanted to be tarred as a supporter just for saying that current penalties are enough or that the new proposed penalties might go too far or be counter productive.

"So you take a guy who's committed a crime. Now you put him on a registry that may keep him from getting a job, or making friends, generally just totally isolating him for the rest of his life and giving him lots of free time. Do you think that makes him less likely to commit another crime?" - Cracked.com

Some 'Splainin' To Do: Even putting aside the very real problem that "sex offender" can be a disturbingly broad category (e.g., an 18 year old has sex with his 17 year old girlfriend); as a general rule, I don't think that it's a good idea to provide the public with an excuse for vigilantism, even against those who might otherwise deserve it.


This is a concern. If we want to punish someone we should have the balls to do it rather than a wink and an appeal to a lynch mob. How many offenders will park their molestermobile in a school zone, and be caught? How many women will come out drunk from a bar and not get in the car of a paroled rapist when she sees the plate? Somehow I think very few. Keep 'em in jail if they are still so dangerous.

Fair enough, I agree the term "sex offender" could be abused - most pedophiles have multiple charges and convictions so it should only be used in cases where it is determined that the person constitutes a danger to the general community.

But I still don't understand the jacking of men off in public restrooms - is this rampant in the homosexual community?

The term sex offender  is abused currently.  A chick flashing her tits in public should not be placed in the same category as a habitual child abuser.   And if a person constitutes a danger to the general community then they should still be incarcerated not in a position to be driving around schools with or without identifying plates.

Since it's clear that nobody agrees a prison sentence is sufficient reparation for crimes, or that anyone could possibly reform in jail (with American prisons, probably not), let's also force ex-cons to display all of their convictions on their vehicles, clothing and homes.  If a man was guilty of fraud, assault, murder, burglary or any other crime it should be shown to every one so we can enjoy vigilante mobs, lynch gangs and a state of distrust between everyone.  That would be much better.

Unfortunately for politicians too, if you try to talk some common sense into the system, people scream that you support child rape.

What I don't support is labeling a wide range of minor and moderate offenders the same as the depraved perverts who rape toddlers.

I also don't understand the fixation on sex crimes. Murder a kid and you won't end up on a murder offenders list, won't have to notify everyone in your neighborhood and won't have restrictions on where you can live after being releases. It seems to me like murder and violence should be punished more harshly than sex.

It's mostly politicians trying to show they're "tough on" this or that. It's also a way to get around sentencing limits and punish someone indefinitely even if they can't be locked up indefinitely. It encourages that indirectly too since someone who has that scarlet letter on their record will have a hell of a time ever landing a job that pays better than crime.

So you're insinuating that there is an appropriate length of punishment for raping children? Personally I'd put that at "life" but hey to each their own.


Well if life is appropriate, then keep them locked up for life, or execute them. Don't beat aroun the bush and let them out while continuing to punish them. Also "raping a child" should be just that, not consensual sex with someone a few years/months/days younger.

Does it actually matter whether a pedophile is having sex with little girls or little boys?  The physical but moreover psychological injuries to either are just as severe.

But to answer your question: pedophilia is a crime about exerting power and control, just like rape.  Being gay or straight has nothing to do with it, because sexual orientation isn't a justification for crime.


I don't think pedophilia is about control, I think it's a matter of someone being seriously miswired in the head. There are countless ways to exert control that don't involve anything sexual. Yes, some people are probably aroused by having control, but there has to be something else in play with the average pedo. Control also wouldn't explain those who get busted with kiddie porn. Unless they created the porn, they weren't controlling anyone.

farked in the head, clearly, but control? I just don't buy it. Without studying the specific case, it's not possible to identify the motivation.

Osato: Why not make them wear pink triangle badges instead? I mean, if you've got to persecute people based on an arbitrary distinction, you might as well go all the way and draw directly from the source of your inspiration.

Someone asked him that (although said scarlet letters) and according to TFA he replied "Well, if you thought that was necessary," Hill replied, "that would be fine."

FTA: "
At a meeting on Wednesday, Tennessee House transportation committee chair Rep. Vince Dean pushed back against the bill. "Is it your intention to cause that person embarrassment if they, say, go to buy a pack of cigarettes or a pack of Copenhagen?" he asked, adding: "It brings to mind that, maybe, a scarlet letter put on his breast might work as well."

"Well, if you thought that was necessary," Hill replied, "that would be fine."


Hell, why not bring out the stockades at this point? Maybe a symbol they can sew onto their clothes? Maybe a star of some type?

You're still saying that some level of child rape is "ok" if there is a set amount of punishment for it.


How the hell is he saying that? Someone can commit murder and eventually be released after try serve their time, at which point they can return to society having paid their dues.

Does that mean that some amount of murder is "ok"?

I had a nightmare that I was stuck in traffic and really had to go, and ended up labeled a sex offender for peeing on the side of the road.  I had to explain to my employer that pretty-please could I still work here, literally I just had to pee.

There's levels of sex offense, and urinating in public doesn't belong on the list.  It isn't a sexual act.  Now, if someone finds that hot and keeps doing it in front of elementary schools....

Haven't finished the rest of the comments yet so someone may have beaten me to it but...I'm betting this is a reference to Nathaniel Hawthorne's, The Scarlet Letter.  That is a MUCH more obvious comparison.  Some of us older Farkers who had honors English got the reference, you younger or less tortured American literature students won't.  This is a learning moment for you, don't jump to conclusions...

Electrify: Since I don't have a car, can I get it printed on my bus pass instead?

Haven't finished the rest of the comments yet so someone may have beaten me to it but...I'm betting this is a reference to Nathaniel Hawthorne's, The Scarlet Letter.  That is a MUCH more obvious comparison.  Some of us older Farkers who had honors English got the reference, you younger or less tortured American literature students won't.  This is a learning moment for you, don't jump to conclusions...

Yes, of course, don't read the rest of the comments before opening your piehole.

You will get to the part where Hester Prynne had a pink Star of David sewn onto her dress.

Fark still amazes me.
