These articles raise some interesting questions about society's tendency to see all men as potential child molesters:
Are We Teaching Our Kids to Be Fearful of Men? (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB118782905698506010.html?mod=Moving-On)

We Predators (http://www.bennettandbennett.com/blog/2007/09/we-predators.html)
Avoiding Kids: How Men Cope With Being Cast as Predators (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB118903209653018615.html?mod=loomia&loomia_si=1)
The last article is especially interesting to me as an adult male -- for obvious reasons. Should I assume that because I am an adult male, society will automatically profile me as dangerous and threatening to children? And will children behave towards me as if I'm a potential criminal? It's a strange world we live in.
On another note, Mark Bennett, the attorney who authors the blog `Defending People: The Art and Science of Criminal Defense Trial Lawyering' (http://www.bennettandbennett.com/blog/) seems to be a very good writer. Will be adding him to my blog feeds.
