Reply To: The sex offender registry: a non-punitive civil regulatory scheme



I don’t know if maybe you missed one of my previous comments, I think it was on another post/article, anyway, this here…

“ as I have been a sex offender for the past 10 years”

Have you been committing sex crimes for the past 10 yrs? If not, then you’re NOT a “sex offender”. To call yourself a sex offender is the equivalent of me calling myself a smoker…. because I AM a smoker. I just put a cigarette out a few mins ago and about to have another one.
Are YOU about to go commit another sex crime?
Then you’re NOT a sex offender. You are someone that broke a law once which had to do with sex.
You’re not helping the fight against labeling if you’re going to call yourself a “sex offender”.
