The readings in this week’s module introduce several myths about sex offenders. In your initial posts to your peers, address the following:

  • Explain a few myths you believed about sexual offenders that you were surprised to discover were not true.
  • Which facts or statistics in the readings surprised you the most?
  • Why do you think there are so many myths or unfounded facts about sex offenders?

In responding to your peers, discuss their findings and respond to their reactions. Use the following prompts to guide your responses:

  • Did your thoughts differ from their thoughts?
  • Discuss the myths that both you and your peer believed and ones that only one of you believed.
  • Why do you think your ideas might differ? What are the implications of these myths on public policy?
