Reply To: Sex offenders need not apply


It’s not much better here in the U.K., my partner is one of the kindest, most gentle individuals, yet he is treated as an outcast and a pariah because, almost two decades ago, during a time of severe depression, he downloaded a few questionable images. He has been thrown out of his home four times, violently assaulted, faces constant insults and abuse, and was even barred from completing a course at university. (mind you, he is a PhD and a Masters in chemistry, and worked as a teacher for many years, as well as being a carer for his severely ill mother). This whole attitude sucks, and I am angry and disgusted. A better man you couldn’t find, but he is literally left to rot, and no one cares. This in the ‘enlightened’ 21st century West. My foot.
