I think I missed what this is about. Am interested to know. My person is wrongly accused of it. And the ramifications are lifelong.

OK, I read all of that website information, and I am so glad finally someone is trying to change things regarding that. If your person was wrongly convicted, he is chastised for the rest of his life in almost every aspect of his life. Or, if they are lumped into the sex offender category for being with a minor, when they are only a year or so older, that is ridiculous too, to be labeled that forever. Or other circumstances. And what about having paid their debt to society? That means nothing with that title, and it has gotten to be a political coux to get on the bandwagon against Sex offenders.
So many do not deserve the title, or anything that goes with it. They need to change the way they title it, and categorize it. It is actually a disservice to the public too, the way it is presented. Putting a ridiculous fear into neighbors when a sex offender is moving in, when that man would never do anything, the charges were just made up by a vicious woman seeking revenge on a man, or whatever. You all have different scenarios you could tell how your person got into this, and don't deserve this. Everyone reading this should sign the petition. I sure did.

If you look on the internet there are tons of people trying to make a difference on this subject. I read for hours on it. If only some of this will help. Get involved people, however you can, sign any petition, write to the originators of bills trying to be passed. Make a difference!!

While everyone is entitled to there opinion, this is not supposed to be a bashing post. It is a group that was started to be imformative.

I agree, and the person that commented about no wrongly convicted sex offenders sure got on the wrong discussion group. We are here to support each other because we love someone with that title. She was just doing it to get back at me, she knew me personally.

I just have to say that sex offenders do NOT have it better than victims. My husband was in HIGH SCHOOL and had sex with a girl who was 2 yrs and 2 months younger. He started dating her when he was a MINOR. He has served over 4 years in prison already and has to register, and go through LIFE LONG repercussions. I too have to pay the price. The family of sex offenders have it the WORST. We are the FORGOTTEN ONES...THE OTHER VICTIMS THAT NO ONE NOTICES OR MENTIONS. I'm NOT saying that those who are victims have it easy, but I know for a fact that the offenders do not have it easier. I think that site is right and only seriously dangerous ones should register. Or at least not the ones who have sex with fellow high school students.

People who give sex offenders, or their loved ones trouble should take a good look at the chance they have to have someone they love in a similar situation. At any moment anyone can accuse a man, or woman of this and even if it is wrong, and completely untrue, their lives are ruined forever. I knew people who really caused someone problems, until later they had a friend get accused, then they sang a different tune. People need to stop judging just because someone had the misfortune of ticking someone off and they were then falsely accused.

If you love them, then support them, especially if they were wrongly accused, and to hell with what other people say about them. One day they may have someone they care about accused of something awful, then they will see our side
