Dating site for sex offenders appropriate gift for one year dating anniversary
What's more, the breadth of these restrictions, and the inexactness of who is targeted, raise an issue unlikely to garner much sympathy: fairness to sex offenders. Schneiderman announced that through an initiative dubbed "Operation: Game Over," several major gaming companies had removed the profiles of more than 3,500 registered sex offenders in the state.The day before, a Louisiana bill forbidding registered sex offenders from using social networking sites was approved by a state House committee.The announcement came after a Hollywood executive, identified only as Jane Doe, called for the site to change its policies in a lawsuit filed last week in Los Angeles County Superior Court.
The Louisiana bill applies only to those whose victim(s) were underage, but the video gaming initiative does not, even though the aim is to protect children.
Still, protecting kids from predators with unprecedented access to them is important; there is no debate there.
The question is how much good will be done by banning sex offenders from online venues populated with kids.
The online dating sites, which are presumably aiming to help protect members from being assaulted on dates, target all manner of sex offenders (while still allowing in suitors with, for example, a domestic violence rap sheet).
"Not all sex offenders are the same, and it is usually a mistake to treat them as if they are," says Cantor.
There are already strict restrictions placed on where sex offenders can live in the real-world -- how far can we go in limiting their existence in the virtual realm?
