He was found guilty of ten charges, including rape and battery against children, in the early 90's. He always seemed like such an upstanding intellectual, great for discussing politics and ethics. What would you do if you found out your friend was a sex offender?

ok so you are surprised because you thought that intellectualism went with being a good person, and now it turns out it doesn't, and so you feel... thrown? it's making you question.. what is it making you question?

You say "what would you do"... do you feel there is something to be done? Is it that you are having to rethink and remap your world view, is that the "doing" you mean?

Personally, If you had said "this guy was a kind and supportive friend, he'd always go the extra mile to help someone, he was always there for me" I'd be surprised, but "is great at discussing things" does not, to me, mean "has any real sense of right or wrong" it's one thing to know that "harm" is categorized as bad and another thing to *feel* harming someone is bad and feel pain for those harmed

>rape and battery against children

cut off all contact with this person obviously, pretend like he doesnt even exist or died or something.

Are you upset because of the level 3 part or the sex offender part?

Honestly it completely depends on the circumstances of the problem, how long ago it was, and whether I believed they'd been reformed or not. I certainly wouldn't want children around them.

why is this even a thread? You wouldn’t make new friends with a child rapist. Why would you keep a friend who was a child rapist?

people don’t just rape a child and reform themselves completely. He will always at heart be a child rapist.

Sounds like a monster to me.

That actually describes the guy pretty well. He narcan'd over a dozen people back to life this year alone. When I was near-homeless, he was supportive, and when I needed someone to watch my little nephew for the night (jk lol)

The RSO part. Level 3 makes it a little worse I guess.
So this is what I would post if I were any of you, but it's different when you've known someone for years and find out that they did something nasty, especially since they were severely mentally ill and it was 30+ years ago. Imagine one of your friends being like "hey btw I'm an RSO sorry I didn't tell you years ago." Imagine it's someone you know and trust. I mean, the guy served his time, so I feel like he's kind of payed his debt to society. On the other hand, child-abuse is pretty much impossible for me to relate to and I struggle to empathize with him, even after he served his sentence.

We had a chat the other day about it and he explained that he lives every day with crippling regret and remorse and self-loathing, so that made me feel more empathy for him. He had a heart attack two days ago, which also helped.

I imagine he'll always be attracted to teen boys, but I guess if he doesn't act on it, there's a noble restraint to it, like that pedo rabbi who never diddled anyone and then told the world on his death bed that he served God by not letting his pedo-ness make him abuse any kids.

Anyway, I just made this thread because I wanted to discuss the situation a bit. I've never had to deal with a friend being an RSO and I thought I might get some interesting perspective here. Thanks for the discussion.

I had a friend who turned out to be a child pornographer and went to prison, the scumbag got to stay in the medical ward the whole time due to having diabetes and he's out now. I immediately cut him out of my life completely when I found out, as any decent rational person would do. This is a no-brainer & I really hope OP is just shitposting.

If you like the guy you can always keep tabs on him for the greater good. Being his friend might prevent him doing something bad.

I'd ask him for an explanation though
