Reply To: A not-so-surprising consequence of sexual hysteria: presumed guilt


The sex offender registry is the modern day scarlet letter. And sexual crime accusations are most certainly the modern day mark of the beast. One is given by the courts, the other by society. At anytime you may be stamped with one of them.

We don’t know at this point if Kavanaugh is guilty. But like this post said, it probably doesn’t matter. If Kavanaugh were to be found innocent in court, society is not going to accept that. Because they’ve already found him guilty. Like the phrase, “The bigger they are, the harder they fall”, Kavanaugh is a popular figure, however, this accusation that society has already found him guilty for is going to make him fall really hard regardless of the outcome. We just hope this is a wake up call for Kavanaugh that this whole sex offender hysteria has gone too far.

It will never be enough for you if you were accused of a sex crime to later be found innocent. Because society has already found you guilty. Because to them there is no possible way you could be innocent. So let this be a lesson to anyone who may be accused, pick your scar: the letter or the mark?
