Fred Cole: If it were only “Those Sears Roebuck lingerie adds." Take a walk down snuff video lane and see what you can find suitable for Sears Roebuck these days.
Extreme positions are taken on this issue and the children are left exposed. There is virtually no way for a parent to completely block internet activity to protect their children from being exposed to this material, including child pornography. Also, once a young boy has experienced the most explicit of this material, it is very compelling to pursue more.
"The issue is about whether or not this Society has the Right to enforce some standard of ethical conduct concerning the content of media." Would you not agree with what Mr. Gawron says as perhaps appropriate especially where our children are concerned? Should they not have the chance to develop their "Supreme Dignity of Humanity"? That is certainly what I want for my son, but has become extremely challenging to achieve now. Especially where children are concerned "it can and should be regulated."
Mr. Gawron , I agree with your broader view, I am just dealing with the collateral damage of current policies and their inability to find reasonable ground.
Sorry for the run on paragraph in the previous post. It was from my iPhone and translated that way :(.
"Fred Cole-3 Maybe your 9 year old with a computer can access snuff films, any child of mine that age would be under strict supervision while using the Internet." 75% of 9 yr olds are exposed to porn. Simple search for a favorite cartoon character and they will get porn animi. My son was exposed to Internet porn at 11 and he was under the strictest security/supervisory controls. He is now 14 and it is still a problem. Developmentally this is a serious problem for the future of our young men. Their brains are reinforcing and dropping critical pathways during their teens that will form who they will be as adults. Porn is extremely compelling to a pubertal teen, and it's not just pictures, it's videos of pick your favorite abberant flavor. Having these visuals imprinted in their minds at such a young age in an ongoing basis makes having a healthy relationship as an adult virtually impossible. Porn is a multi-billion dollar business. Exposing young boys, and thus steeling their childhoods (which angers me most for my son), certainly ensures a lock on their future profitability. With so much money involved in this industry how do you fight it for our children?
