One thing (of many) that baffles me utterly about the USA is the fact that on any number of channels on the telly per day we can watch dozens upon dozens of murders being committed -- frequently on the part of characters supposedly playing police -- but yet if somebody shows a bit of perfectly human anatomy -- even accidentally -- a collective shriek immediately issues. The proper response is either laughter or a comment of, "Oh, please."
On the "sex offender" bit, if they're so dangerous to the general population why don't we execute them or imprison them for life. This asinine notion of "registration and notification" amounts to a life-sentence in practise, why not remove the chicanery and just lock 'em up or kill 'em (we're good at that here)? Is it, perhaps, because those in power are aware of precisely how screwed up things are here and potential international backlash?
On your last assertion, I have to sadly hang my head and agree with you. It's going to do no favours at all. All it's going to do is reinforce the notion in what passes for the public's mind that any guy who dares appear out of accepted garb is some sort of pervert -- which is something the lot of us are trying to fight.
