I just wanted to know.....

I was thinking about some of the guys(sex offenders) at the shelter that have girlfriends. I wonder if the girlfriend is aware.


But do understand sex offender has many meanings. It's not a guy sleeping with an underage girl. A 15 year old that had sex with a 17 year old can be charged as a sex offender. Even if the 2 agreed to have sex with each other.

My first reaction was no way, not knowingly anyway. But I guess on reading your post it would depend on the circumstance. There would be very few occasions where it would be acceptable though.

No I wouldn't. (Wouldn't date a man living in a shelter either.) Yes, 17 having sex with 15 is a possibility, but it isn't worth the hassle to me in order to find out. I'd pass.

Having made an entire career of locking them up and keeping them in some form of custody I certainly wouldn't advise anyone to date one.

You don't have to have sex or anything close to it to be charged with sexual assault.

Again you can't lump everyone into the same pile here. Why can't people think a little.
My thoughts and feelings:

Child molestors: Chain a brick to their leg and drop them out in the ocean

Child rapists: Execute them slowly and painfully

Rapists: Lock them away for life and keep them away from all society

Some young dude 19 years old with a 17 year old girlfriend: Should not be a sexual predator, but the law says they are.

Anyone who "PREYS" upon another human in sexual, violent way should not be allowed out ever. Anyone who PREYS on children, should not be allowed to live.

Calling teens who have sex and one is a year older and an adult, a sexual predator is wrong in my opinion. When I was 17, I knew what was what and had sex with a 19 year old GIRL and it was beautiful, it was not a crime. I was not a victim, trust me! I was one happy young stud!

So it depends.

Just about all high school sex involve a potential sex offender. You mean "convicted sex offender". Otherwise you'll never date an alpha male!

Do you work with sex offenders? I'm confused about the meaning.

But do understand sex offender has many meanings. It's not a guy sleeping with an underage girl. A 15 year old that had sex with a 17 year old can be charged as a sex offender. Even if the 2 agreed to have sex with each other.
According to the criminal justice system, sleeping with an underage girl classifies as a sex offender.
The above you've posted that's highlighted seems contradictory.

I think this is total disgusting BS! However, I'm not sure I'd marry a man with such a record regardless... I'd imagine it haunts you for life! Would such an unfortunate guy be really on the sex offenders' maps?! Guess so... Some of the idiocy in this country just makes my blood boil!

Yes, I work with sex offenders.

I do not want to get into the legal aspect of it. That's for another forum.

I will say what I stated IS NOT contradictory........I work with S.O's and understand all of the gray areas. That's what the laws don't tell.


Again, this is not about the legal aspects. It's about dating.
