treatment of pedophiles

If you use Facebook at all, you've probably seen it--the post that says, "Why do we test things on animals when we have prisons full of pedophiles?" Funny, stupid, or unbelievably cruel? You know your friends, I don't, so you have to answer for yourself.

The term "pedophile" has become so overused as to be meaningless. Police, psychologists, and the man on the street all use the term differently. I vote we stop using the word altogether.

I'll bet if the pictures had been of your daughter and the offender someone other than your husband you would be throwing the word pedophile around pretty liberally.
