My ex is a registered sex offender. Because he raped a relative. I cant disclose names or details. But this happened Few years back. And he is out running around and is able to have some type of visitation with my daughter. He is a repeated criminal. He has sexually assulted other women including myself thats never stepped up to the plate bc we all are scared, or just think that he will get away with it so whats the point. I do not think my daughter should be allowed around him expecially...

I do not think my daughter should be allowed around him expecially now thats she in the process of becoming a young lady. I am trying to fight it in court. But idk how this will go :( im praying and hoping that my baby girl will not have to go back. Justice for woman and men boys and girls that go through this.. Needs to be able to rest their heads at night and feel safe. I do not. Every night i lay awake wondering if all the windows are locked. Or if i forgot to lock the doors. There needs to be better laws not just to protect us. But our children!

Too many offenders 'get by with it' because their victims don't come forward.. As harsh as it sounds, every victim who keeps quiet help the rapist to rape again..

The thing is, what proof do we have.. Some lack proof of it ever happening.. So theres nothing we can do. And this happened long before he went to prison over that. But it was just a yr and half. To 2. And the court if i was to come forward now. They would just think im lying bc we are fighting over custody.

I'd sign this if I knew it only applied to rape &violence. But, the gray area of perceived sexual harassment makes me hesitate. There has to be a statute of limitations on guys just being stupid ;-)

Most have no guilt or remorse and blame the victim even when the victim is a child....

I say take them on a 20 story building, place an 18ft rope around their private area and drop them off the building and the rest is painful. LOL
