I am a Registrant. 

I have no problem whatsoever with law enforcement knowing who I am, where I live, and what I’ve done.  I do, however, have a problem with that information being given to every Tom, Dick, and vigilante who wants to use that information for their own nefarious purposes.

In every crisis lies an opportunity.  I’m told this is an ancient and venerated Chinese proverb, but then again, I’ve been told a lot of stuff over the years that turned out to be complete bull crap.  Nevertheless, I choose to believe this particular cookie fortune.  After wallowing in my anger and frustration for several weeks, I concluded that whining about my problems wasn’t my style, and it accomplished absolutely nothing.  I decided that it was time to get off my duff and actually do something about it.  God grant me the serenity, blah blah blah… and the wisdom to know the difference, right?

And so here I am, repurposed:  Author. Researcher. Activist. Podcaster. Spokesman. Blogger. Advocate for rational sexual offense laws.  And let’s not forget – fortune cookie believer.  

Wish me luck.
