    Epidemic' growth of Net porn cited

    Congress must ensure that obscenity laws are enforced so that children are not exposed to pornography on the Internet, researchers and advocates of Internet safety said Tuesday.

    Speaking at a briefing at the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center, researchers said because obscenity laws have not been upheld or enforced, illegal adult pornography has flooded and polluted the Internet.

    "Today we are calling on Congress and the Department of Justice to ensure that the enforcement of our current obscenity laws is a priority," said Donna Rice Hughes, president of Enough Is Enough, a Virginia-based nonprofit that works to make the Internet safer for children and families. "Our children's innocence is worth fighting for."

    You stupid people. You stupid stupid people.

    Try PARENTING. Not Gov't regulation. You want the Internet "Safer for Children and Families" then be a part of your children's lives. Have the Net accessible only where you can observe the situation. I hate people like these folks. I really really do.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    What have to raise my kid and be a parent. Interact with them, teach them. You ask to much, not.
    I agree. People need to try parenting and quit look for more laws. If you don't want your kid looking at porn on the internet, try restricting the use and monitor what sites they visit.

    I don't get why parents think that the entire world has to be safe for children. We don't ask for the government to ban all cars because they might hit kids. Instead, we supervise kids until they get old enough to teach them how to avoid the danger. Why is the internet any different? You can't legislate what your kid is exposed to walking down the block, how can you expect to legislate something that covers the entire world like the internet. You'd think parents would be happy when the worst danger is finding some porn compared to the potential threats of real life.

    So long as you can access a website by typing www.XYZ .com into a browser, kids will be accessing porn. **** happens, deal with it. Also, this really bothered me:

    They're worried about kids getting their hands on illegal adult pornography, i.e. "extreme" porn? Yea, because I'm sure kids will be totally fine so long as they stick to good old-fashioned DVDA, but as soon as you add in some nipple clamps and an amputee, things will just get way out of hand.

    ugh.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Can I get a amen....
    I dislike people more as each day goes on.

    To Enough Is Enough,
    If you care about your oh so precious angels, lock them up until 30 so they aren't exposed to anything.
    Don't make the rest of us have to live with your pathetic excuse of parenting.
    Also go fall in a hole.

    Besides the obvious CP, what kind of porn is actually illegal in the U.S.? Amputee porn might be a little esoteric, but I'm sure the ACLU would have filed a lawsuit for discriminating against the handicapped if it were actually illegal. Or are we still using the "I'll know it when I see it" definition.

    Bestiality maybe?

    That's exactly what it is. We're still using an entirely subjective standard.

    Its never a good sign when your legal precedents make a good punchline for jokes. Reminds me of the heartwarming case where a man was almost convicted of possessing child pornography until the actress flew all the way from Puerto Rico to prove she was over 18 and revealed that nobody had actually bothered to figure out her real age.
