Excerpt from Crime, Habit or Disease?: A Question of Sex From the Standpoint of Psycho-Pathology
Men who would not willfully do wrong, cruelly mis judge their fellow-creatures and condemn acts which they, for lack of knowledge, consider monstrous sins, which however, are only the deeds produced by the action of an abnormal brain. Judges are guided by sentiment instead of by actual facts, society has barred fellow - men with the desire to isolate the impure, but has thus closed its doors to very noble men and women who were not criminals but patients; public opinion scorns a certain class of people as slanderers and brutes where pity would be the proper feeling.
