The way sex offenders are labeled is changing in Colorado. The board that sets state standards voted today to change the term "sex offenders" to reflect so-called "person-first" language.
I actually think the new term is ok. What stuns me is the reason for changing the name. Someone on the Sex Offender board said that they will no longer use the term sex offender because "that has negative impacts on those who commit sex offenses". WTF!!!!
