Comment of the Day: Bad Judgment on Sex Offenders

Categories: Crime, Whatever

We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.

So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.

This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.

A lot of people DID NOT LIKE, with capital letters, our item on the 10 Hottest Females on the Texas Sex Offender List. They also did not take to the idea that showing sex offenders all don't look like classic, stereotypical perverts might be worth doing. (Click here for a more expanded explanation and apology.)

One of the more reasoned takes came from a reader named Bee.

She wrote:

This is classless, if not cruel. Commending these women in any way - let alone on their looks - is no way to bring respect and focus to the issue of sexual assault: it's a cheap, tasteless act to get attention for this site.

Though you've definitely achieved your goal of getting attention, unfortunately, you guys have also outed yourselves as purporters of triggering, hateful material. Richard Connelly should be proud of himself. What can we expect from him next, a top ten list focusing on the sexiest pedophiles? Disgusting.

 Mr. Connelly, 

You must not think much of your audience if you suppose that everyone assumes sexual predators look like the stereotype and that not a one of us could possibly consider that offenders come in both sexes, of any age group, ethnicity etc.

I do believe, however, that all burglars look like the characters from Spy vs. Spy, people from Africa have bones through their noses, and Texans, let's not forget, are all fat, wear ten gallon hats and marry their cousins on hunting trips. 

Thank goodness there are good souls like you raising AWARENESS! For those of us too stupid to think the whole world is not one big walking stereotype, you have opened my EYES!


That was a top ten list focusing on the sexiest pedophiles!  Wish granted, Bee!
