    Period.
    The problem is that some of them are, and you will find teens who have racked up dozens of victims that they've molested.

    CSOM Publications

    Sexual aggression perpetrated by young people has been a growing concern in the United States over the past decade. Currently, it is estimated that juveniles account for up to one-fifth of all rapes and almost one-half of all cases of child molestation committed each year (Barbaree et al, 1993, Becker et al, 1993, Sickmund et al, 1997).
    These stats haven't changed much over the years. Labeling a streaker as a sex offender is absurd. However, suggesting that juveniles should NEVER be labeled as sex offenders because of their age is equally absurd.

    Streaking is funny and harmless, unless its me, then it's just wrong.

    This is just stupid. Putting every random person who pulled a prank or got drunk and urinated in public or had sex with their girlfriend in a car and got caught...that just pads the list with people who don't deserve it. It diminishes the seriousness with which we should take the list and thus diminishes the seriousness with which we treat real sex offenders.

    I don't believe that teenagers are automatically exempt from the sex offender list, being the victim of a teen abuser at 6 years old myself. However, I do think that a little common sense needs to be applied because there is a big difference between sex offense and nudity. How we tied sex and nudity together so intimately is beyond me because the two are not mutually inclusive.

    Quoted for truth. If crap like this keeps up pretty soon the "sex offender" list will be regarded as a junk list of people who managed to piss off the ultraconservative "sex and nudity are teh devil!" crowd. We won't even be able to tell a child rapist from a guy who dropped his pants at a bachelor party after getting stoned. Thanks a lot prudes. You never fail to suck at everything you bitch about.

This view is the result of a the religious and political beliefs of the bourgeoisie (upper class) being forced on the lower class.
    If it was consensual then it should not considered rape.



    Also, minors are called minors specifically because they have not reached the age of majority. They are not mature enough to make adult decisions and therefore cannot be held to the same standards as adults. In most cases, juvenile records are sealed to protect the minor after he or she reaches the age of majority.
    The fact they are minors should not exclude them from being punished for committing a crime. Most kids know the difference between right wrong,Victims of crimes should not be cheated out of justice just because their assailant was a minor.


    Kids do stupid things. Kids are immature and can be helped if the opportunity is there. Being on the sex offenders list completely ruins lives and renders these kids unhelpable.
    If a minor actually raped someone and is put on a sex offender list I could care less if the rest of his life is ruined.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
