Talk: Baughman wrote articles about the rights of sex offenders, and claimed in his TEDx Talk (pictured) that 'all humans are attracted to teens'.He was arrested April for texting a 16-year-old in violation of probation He was eventually let out in 2012 and went on to become a loud and increasingly visible campaigner for the rights of people on the Sex Offenders' Registry, hoping to redeem sex offenders in the public's eyes.
But his campaign has been scuppered by his arrest - much to the horror of his former friend Josh Gravens, who was registered as a sex offender at the age of 12, after he inappropriately touched his eight-year-old sister.
Gravens, now 29, had worked with Baughman to create 'a world where people like us weren’t forced to the margins of society' and says Baughman's arrest will have a 'devastating effect' on their campaign.
Galen Baughman, 32, who was imprisoned and registered as a sex offender in 2004 after having oral sex with a 14-year-old boy, had gone on to become a highly vocal spokesperson for sex offenders' rights.
He opened the Center for Sexual Justice, and wrote a number of articles and gave a TEDx Talk on the topic - but on the weekend of April 23 gave himself up to police for sending texts to the boy, in violation of his parole, Slate reported Monday.

He spoke to journalists on laws that affected people on the registry, wrote an essay decrying civil commitment that was praised in The Washington Post and gave a TEDx Talk titled 'Are We all Sex Offenders?
' Baughman's work won him a fellowship from the Open Society Foundations, which is run by philanthropist George Soros and promises 'to build vibrant and tolerant democracies whose governments are answerable to their citizens'.
When it comes to relationships, treat your actual physical time together as your quality time.
It is infinitely better than text messages, there’s no room for misinterpretation or miscommunication like there is in the limited medium of texting and it takes the pressure off both of you.
So if that’s happening, you’re probably looking at a guy who isn’t all that into you… well, you could be saving yourself a ton of time and heartache. so if you think that you have a good relationship with the guy you’re with but you believe he’s starting to lose interest, then I highly recommend you take the following quiz. Good relationships tend to come about when you’re swimming with the current, not against it. if a guy has stopped texting you all of a sudden, and it’s a guy you’ve been seeing for longer than, let’s say, 2 weeks…
