when i lived with jeff there were two child molesters i would see around my neighborhood when i was taking walks. i recognized him because i had seen him on the state sex offender registry. whenever i would see them i would start crying. because who wants to be a child molester? i have never had any attraction to a child. but does that make me any better than them? i just never had. it is nothing i have controlled. if i had who knows if i would have done something. maybe i would maybe i wouldn't. but i could never say.
i don't mean to justify child molesting in any sense because i recognize it is awful and ruins life. but in what way could i attempt to hold them to a standard i have never even had to fight against?
