Sex Offenders

Yet another study showing sex offenders are less likely than most offenders to reoffend.

Mark talks about how all this has caused an irrational - and probably unhealthy - shift in the way children are taught to deal with men and men learn to behave toward children. He blames this, at least in part, on a misperception of what a male is.

I have a hard time judging all this. I know that my experience in criminal law has colored the way I view the world. Personally, I used to love to babysit and play with kids; now, I still love playing with kids, but I don't feel comfortable being left alone without at least one (preferably two) adult witnesses nearby.
