That is true and I do believe 'real' snuff porn or torture porn is illegal everywhere. The fake stuff is very much disclosed to be fake(I worked as
a cyber nanny for a short time). The news is also real by real people, recently the executions by IS have been broadcast everywhere and there is much
worse on the internet; car accidents, fights, caught on video type clips, executions, etc. This is our world right now, I wish it was an idealized
vision created by humanity, but it isn't. Some of the worst atrocities ever seen have taken place in Africa, Germany, India, Japan, etc. if we turn a
blind eye to the grim reality of our world, we would be simply lying to ourselves. Brushing subjects under the carpet, in my opinion is a bad idea and
will only create a planet of people blind to these subjects.
I have an 7 year old daughter, when she gets older I have to explain to her men may try to put something in her drink to make her sexually compliant.
Do I WANT to have this conversation with her? Absolutely not! But if I don't talk to her, how can I make sure she is aware of the situation other
then hope she stumbles upon it in the news before it really happens. Awareness, IMO is never a bad thing.
Trust me I'm not being overtly argumentative on this subject, I have seen every illegal act somehow tried to be made legal, by shifting reality. For
example, some of the worst people in society in my books are pedophiles, producers of porn know there is a huge market for showing underage sex with
minors, but it's illegal. So they find a short, small statured baby looking 18 year old(I've even seen them go through great extents to find women
with a specific diseases that makes them look much younger then they actually are) and then make a movie. The girl in question may look 10 or 12 but
in actuality she's 18 and it's legal for publishing.
Does art imitates life or does life imitates art?
The answer to this question would mean the answer to yours in this subject. Unfortunately there is no answer, so we are stuck somewhere in the middle.
