Politics, Predation, Sex Panics
Chapter 1 inaugurates several claims that it develops throughout the remainder of the manuscript: that law coproduces the scene of sexual violence; that sexual harm is not synonymous with minor or nonconsensual sex; that the gendered adolescent prefigures a more ecological account of sexual harm than does the child and the sex offender. The chapter initiates these arguments by analyzing NBC’s “To Catch a Predator” alongside and against literature on “moral panics” and “sex panics.”
