and,,,, one of the top womens fantasy is a rape fantasy
do not tons of animals do this all day long,,, how many are doing it right now???
and remember it was "simulated" not some poor women on the subway or such
should we arrest movie actors for portraying hitler and the germans in war movies,,, i mean they burned people alive ,,, that's sick
like said earlier,,, a bad precedent this will set and can become a very slippery slope

If there's no actual 12 year olds, then. well.. Whats the crime? A crime should always have a direct victim.
* (B) such visual depiction is, or appears to be, of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct;
I feel strongly that if we are going to support legislation in the name of protection then it is our job to ensure that such legislation is written unambiguously without room for misinterpretation.

I'm going to go against the grain here and say I won't be shedding any tears for this couple. Although I have no strong opinion either way concerning them receiving a prison sentence, in the very least they should have been given a cease and desist order and ask to take their material down.
Free speech is invaluable but not when it exploits or dehumanizes a group of people. I really couldn't care less if the actresses in the material were involved voluntarily. It's still sick and turns a very serious and life shattering crime into an act of entertainment.
I do not think such things should be allowed and am sick and tired of women being portrayed as victims or sexual objects without feelings. Or worse, individuals getting off on the pain of rape victims, simulated or not.
Call me the thought police or what not. I don't really care. The fact is, if it was any other demographic portrayed in this light as in a dehumanizing manner for the entertainment of others (let's say a simulation of a black man's hanging), even if the participants were on a volunteer basis, I'd be equally disgusted. This stuff has got to stop.
You clearly let your bias as a woman get in the way of your thinking. Men get exploited, stereotyped, and degraded every day just as much as women do, especially in the entertainment field.
How are you a Mod again...?
And you say you have no strong opinion on whether they should be locked up in prison???
