So the FB group I’m in has mix feelings with my proposal. Most want really punitive punishments for those caught with these sickening dolls. But I prefer to avoid prison when possible. I consider myself to be a minarchist libertarian and overall am center-right politically.
I want to do some changes to the Creeper Act. I fully commend the criminalization of the possession of child sex dolls. However, I am unhappy with it being a imprisonable offense. I prefer to use criminal fines. Furthermore, I want to keep child sex doll offenders off any criminal registry given the ineffectiveness of them and the fact they are little more than public shaming excursions.
I deeply desire for the following criminal sentence for those caught possessing this heinous material:
Mandatory minimum fine shall be $4,500 + 10% of annual income of the defendant for anyone caught in possession of each child s*xual abuse doll. The maximum possible penalty shall be $4,500 + 200% of annual income so people caught with over 20 child sex dolls won’t be overly punished. For reoffenders and subsequent offenses, the penalty shall be doubled.
So I fancy myself a prison abolitionist which basically means I believe in prison only when absolutely necessary and prefer to opt for restorative justice, criminal fines, or probation for the vast majority of offenses including many crimes of violence. I recall reading about what a former warden thought and he felt 90% of the people in his prison did not need to be there. There was also studies done which showed criminals who have their prison sentence suspended are more likely to be able to keep their jobs and pay restitution to victims or victim funds. Furthermore, a look into European justice shows that criminal fines and probation are actually pretty great alternatives to incarceration and is more affordable.
The prison abolitionist mindset goes as follows: Prison is for those who we are rationally afraid of, not for people we are rationally mad at. Leave prisons for people like child rapists like Larry Nassar, murderers like Ted Bundy, terrorists like the michigan Gov. attempted kidnappers, and crimes of extreme and profound violence. Don’t throw people in prison just because you are mad at them.
I am very angry at these sick pedos who want these dolls. But I am not afraid of them. I want them severely punished, but not with prison, not with probation or any restrictions on their liberty, but with really severe fines. I feel that $4,500 + 10% of their income PER DOLL possessed reflects the egregious nature of this contraband crime. Being a prison abolitionist is not about being against severe punishment, it’s wanting prison to be used only when absolutely necessary/last resort. You can be a prison abolitionist and want severe financial punishments to these sick POS.
I find “child s*x dolls” or as they should be called, child sexual abuse dolls to be an extremely heinous invention and everyone possessing them are culpable for this heinous tool. This tool only serves to normalize the sick perversions of pedophiles. It is indefensible to be in possession of these heinous horrible tools. I cannot understand why anyone would condone them.
The distribution and possession of such heinous dolls undoubtfully normalize pedophilia. These dolls not only put children at risk, but they also devalue the childhood of everyone. By having sx with these dolls, you make it clear to the world you think a CHILD LIKE BODY is for sx and this is unconscionable and undoubtfully represent a very serious crime worthy of harsh financial criminal fines.
When you have sex with a child sx abuse doll, you harm me, because you devalue MY childhood.
When you have sex with a child sx abuse doll, you harm society, because you devalue EVERYONE’s childhood.
When you have sex with a child sx abuse doll, you harm society, because you NORMALIZE pedophilia.
When you have sex with a child sx abuse doll, you harm children, because the normalization of child sex dolls LEADS UNDOUBTFULLY to the normalization of child rape, child molestation and abuse of all kinds.
