My personal opinion is that you're using misleading statistics and data to come to a conclusion that is biased.
You suggest that you don't have a problem with people having the freedom to act as they wish when it comes to adult media, and then you suggest that
"not all" porn viewers are rapists?
How about "hardly any", or how about considering how many people view adult media and DON'T attack other people?
It's clear from the language you use that you do indeed have a problem with the freedoms of others. There are several instances in your post where
you equate adults who enjoy adult media to rapists, and this smacks of the stereotypical religious extremist. I could be wrong, but I've seen the
same flawed and inflammatory arguments and statements made by Christian extremists before, and that's how you come across to me.
As for the safety of kids, parents are responsible for the protection of their kids. It makes me seethe with anger to hear people screaming "won't
somebody think of the children!!!!" and suggesting the rest of the world should restrict itself because they can't be bothered to educate their
kids, monitor their internet use or employ any of the many thousands of tools there are available to prevent access.
Parents are the ones who are responsible for the raising of their child, not me, not the rest of the world. We are not parents, and we should not be
expected to restrict our lives and freedom to make a lazy parent happy. These are the same people who screamed about Marilyn Manson being
"responsible" for Columbine, while removing all responsibility from the parents of the kids who committed the crime for "not noticing" the
stockpile of weapons the boys had access to. People actually called for censorship after that, again shifting their parental responsibilities out to
If you don't like adult media, and you don't want your kids looking at it while they are under your roof, do the following...
1. Explain your opinion to them.
2. Do not allow them to have a computer in their room.
3. Monitor their internet access.
4. Password protect settings to filter adult media.
5. Confiscate their mobile phone or use the services available to block adult content.
6. Invest in blocking software.
