An interetsting thought train on this subject is if we take a lot of the initial emotional reaction to it away, and look at it with an openish mind...
My question which I will try and explain below, is that by actually using the emotional knee jerk reaction every normal person has, to child sexual
exploitation is the penal/legal system, using the premise of safegaurding the rights of children, to protect them, as a cover in fact a slow creep
towards infringing on the rights of all people?
From small acorns big trees grow and all that.
So consider the following, If a person uses a target practise of, as is often the case a famous politician, and actually is shooting them, rather than
just observing, well then as we have no proof in any way in the OP case nor the story states he actually had any sexual reaction to these pictures...
so therefore where someone is shown to actually not just look but take action on a picture by shooting it, should they be arrested for terrorism if
its the president on the target?
Or for Rascism or xenophobia, inciting such acts of they shoot pictures of Osama Bin Laden?
Futher more to bring it to the sexual field, it is a well known fact that the most prevalent sexual "Fantasy" of all legal adults Especially women
is the rape fantasy.
Now then if a man watchs a "Fantasy" alone or with his partner, say a film not just pictures of a Rape acted scene, should they then infact be
arrested and charged for the liklihood they would actually go and do it?
Is it more likely and abhorrent as its sexual than the emotional pleasure gained from imagining yourself shooting and murdering an Arab, or a
Should the makers of the targets or the films be arrested for inciting such actions to place?
If not why then if a woman of 18 has the physical attributes of a child, and looks like a 9 yr old due to hormones or whatever, and filmed a scene or
had photos taken in sexual acts, or even just naked, and this man watched them would it then be ok as she is over 18?
Even if she looked younger than a child of 14 who was all woman in bodily appearance?
Where is the line the real demarcation?
In fact if a man and woman say a husband and wife, ask a freind to partcipitate in a Rape fantasy to fulfill a long desire of theirs should he then be
arrested for doing so, or they for inciting him to go and do it on an actual person in the future?
What about the rights of Osama, George bush or other leading figures?
What about the rights and safegaurding of all women esp those who have suffered such sick non consentual things in life?
Should not the photo that is famous of the young vietname girl walking charred, half naked from a Napalm cloud from vietnam era never be published
Even though such an image had such an impact on stopping the war worldwide?
As it may be sexual to some?
In fact all those who scream about this man and faces of kids on adult bodies, are apparently so in child rights and protection...
Well you then have to think about the next present you buy for your precious little ones.... where and who made it?
Is that not worrying children working for 14 hours a day 7 days a week to targets getting no education and beaten and kept in bad conditions?
Shouldnt they be protected to?
OH no lets all freak out about a minute amount of terrible events that happen to 1 in a million barbie and ken kids.... and overreact get angry and
protect the innocents, whilst our computers we are on now, the goods in Walmart and the Gap sweaters we wear are all made by slave labour... 9 -15
thats 7 years of their life destroyed and abused every day.
You see my point?
Lets get some real things to be angry about not some sexual deviant looking at a childs face on a computer screen but at what happens NOW to these
children as follows:
246 million children are child labourers
73 million working children are less than
10 years old.
Every year, 22,000 children die in workrelated
The largest number of working children –
127 million – age 14 and under are in the
8.4 million children are trapped in slavery,
trafficking, debt bondage, prostitution,
pornography and other illicit activities.
1.2 million of these children have been
So for the appaled and string him up crowd, etc....
Hey go to Walmart in your SUV, all environmental made from plastic collected from children living in rubbish dumps where we ship our recycles to...
wearing your gap clothes, where the kids who dyed them still have coloured and cencerous feet, then buy a nice pressie for little innocent made in a
sweatshop and then come home and on the keyboard that a 9 or 10 year old slave laboured aver for about $4 a week tell us how sick and twisted this
dude looking at those photos is.
Oh the hypocripsy, and enjoy your deviant sweet nothings in your "normal" partners ears next time you both get very very "Nasty"
Telling it as it is, not how we pretend.
