A friend of mine and I were having a discussion the other day about the registry and I said to him that if everybody who ever had sex, with somebody else who was under 18, for example; remember your high school days, there would be another million easily added to the list. He turned sheet white, and seemed to be recalling high school. The registry has become a catch all, but certainly doesn’t include nearly everyone. Another large number that could be added are the people that “taught” this behavior to the person who was caught, as this is learned behavior, it doesn’t come out of nowhere. I was truly molested myself by two guys who are not on the registry to this day, one teaches school and the other is affiliated with the boy scouts and numerous organizations having to do with kids.
