I don't want to rate this as a '1' for the entertainment factor because it is a very entertaining doc. However, it truly appalls me how someone can wrap their head around the things that these offenders have done, and then have the audacity to justify them. No spoiler--but the woman in the movie--making excuses for what she did by the explanation of the way she was raised....after the acts she committed....please just EXCUSE ME if I'm not intelligent or liberal enough to cry for her. "Grossed out" is a gross understatement.
A lot of this documentary focused on past abuse of the sex offenders, which is generally the case. But please don't expect the public to sympathize with this sort of thing. There are some sacred things left in the world, and there are some taboos to be upheld...thank God. Just ask yourself "your daughter?" "your son?". There is anger towards pedophiles for a reason...they are basically child murderers because that child's life is forever changed and their innocence is no longer intact. No, I do not care how much therapy the rapist has had-- please forgive me.
