Pedophiles are no worse than rapists, murderers and other criminals that cause physical harm to others.
Actually, they are. A murderer does not create a new murderer with his victim. Someone who shoots someone else in a spree might create PTSD, but generally does not fundamentally alter the person they harm. Pedophiles, when they act on their desires to rape children, do it generally more than once, and leave behind a train wreck of a person that will take decades to get over the trauma, if they ever do.
With murderers, the crime ends with the act. With child abuse, the crime frequently self-perpetuates in the victim.
And the most idiotic aspect of registering sex offenders is we just lump everyone together.
That's undeniably the worst aspect of current sex offender lists.
Personally, I was hoping that Google ushers in a whole new sense of what people are like: we're all sinners, we have all broken rules, and the only thing that matters is whether we persist in those crimes, and what those crimes EXACTLY where. Instead, people persist in hiding issues, going to great lengths to not face their own past or stop judging others.
