I’m disgusted by the type of explicit artwork mentioned, however I don’t feel this court decision was just. And I’m fearful that if you take away fake characters for predators to relieve “tension” with and obsess faintly over you are only encouraging them to look at the real thing. Why not if the only alternative is just as illegal? Do I think it is healthy or right for someone to view real or fake pictures that depict children in sexual acts? NO. However there is a difference between morality and legality. Is being in possession of real child porn a crime? Absolutely. But in this instance there were no children involved, just drawings. This might not be a popular opinion, but please refrain from flaming me if you disagree.

I made a thread about this form of pornography a long while back. The debate went on for 14 pages and garnered some interesting viewpoints. If anyone is interested then take a look.

well, if you have these pictures on the internet, you should track down the ORIGINAL SOURCE and PUNISH THEM. Not a USER.
Its like a drug rink, you take down the DISTRIBUTOR and you KILL the operation.
Going after one low level user is such a waste of resources...
but as long as it makes the local law enforcement feel important.....

I dont think that it matters that it was cartoon material vs photographs of real children. The message was the same.
Oh and as far as the art work of the naked Jesus baby up there, is that artwork sending the same message as the cartoon drawings in the Simpson stuff???
Dont think so, that is where the difference is.
