There must be an awful lot of whistle blowers about these days "
I need some clarification. Are you saying that people who view pornography
are inclined to actually act out their fantasy ? If so, can it be extrapolated to all
venues that stimulate libido ?
If you read the legal definition ( which I provided but I gather you may not have read ) age is the predominate factor.
My post was not intended to provoke a knee jerk response based on the inflammatory nature of the subject.
The issue ( for me ) is one of alleged National Security and security clearances.
The Pentagon is going after people who have intentionally ( Illegal ) downloaded Child pornography < What ever the hell that is. To narrow it down, we have a legal definition NOT hysteria.
It could easily become a slippery slope. What if the addy was not intentional ? What if it is honest academic research. And the icing on the cake is they apparently are NOT going after producers of this stuff, but the individuals who have it on their computers.
As the above person stated, REAL CHILD PORNOGRAPHY is rare.
I've had the distasteful task of viewing same, and it is shockingly gruesome.
I simply find that someone LOOKING at a picture should be labeled a criminal and lose a job that requires a security clearance.
If one want to compromise a security holder for info. Money is still king ! Not some lame porn site with individuals who may or may not be of legal age for the purpose of blackmail or public exposure.
Just my opinion, and we all know about opinions.
The United Kingdom Children's charity NCH have stated that demand for child pornography on the internet has led to an increase in sex abuse cases, due to an increase in the number of children abused in the production process. In a study analyzing men arrested for child pornography possession in the United States over a one year period from 2000 to 2001, most had pornographic images of prepubescent children (83%) and images graphically depicting sexual penetration (80%). Approximately 1 in 5 (21%) had images depicting violence such as bondage, rape, or torture and most of those involved images of children who were gagged, bound, blindfolded, or otherwise enduring sadistic sex.

I just feel that since this country has many problems that need to solved the last thing I want is the people who can possible fix the problem sitting around watching porn of ANY kind, especially child porn, no matter what one considers child porn to be.

Heres a little data on the child pornography that you seem to want to portray as people innocently looking at people that might be slightly under 18
The United Kingdom Children's charity NCH ........................ "
80% depicted prepubescent penetrations and 21% depicted rape bondage and torture
