    @ Patriot:

    "There is no such thing as a victim of porn."

    Tell that to the wives and children of porn addicts. As one in recovery myelf, I can tell you that my wife has suffered dearly because on my choices. Yes, our individual choices do impact others. No one lives in a vacuum.

    "If childhood rape is illegal to do or posses or distribute, then how is it 'widely seen' on the internet???"

    If cocaine is illegal, how is it that so many people use it? Quite frankly, you make a ridiculous argument here.

    Pedophilia and other forms of sexual deviancy are not caused by "sexual zealotry", but by sexual promiscuity. Why are child porn and sex slaves so rampant in the most liberal of European societies?

    Porn is not a first ammendment right. It is a drug and needs to be dealt with like a drug. This is based, not on religion, but on documented scientific studies of the human brain. Porn addicts poeople just as badly as illegal drugs, alcohol, etc.

    "whose childhood rape has been widely seen on the Internet"

    If childhood rape is illegal to do or posses or distribute, then how is it 'widely seen' on the internet???

    Those terms are 'headline grabbers', nothing more.

    Not all sexual relations are contemptuous. Only in some countries where sexual zealotry exists like in the USA.

    If someone is 1 day shorter than the 'legal' age, that does not make it a horrible abuse.
    Age is but a number and does not reflect the maturity of a person.

    Exploitation of anyone for profit is bad, regardless of age.

    But what really constitutes exploitation?
    Best I can figure is that the so called 'victim' is not properly compensated for their role in the profit making.

    Many of you need to go back and read your bibles and such. It tells you the age of consent for intercourse and marriage. It tells you what roles men and women and children have and their duties and such.

    Even if you don't believe in a deity, the information was based on historical experiences.

    There is no such thing as a victim of porn.
    But there is such a thing as unlawful sexual contact, rape, abuse, etc.

    Under the 1st amendment ALL porn is 100% LEGAL despite what the courts and lawmakers say.

    How they made it might not be.

    All the government did was make more 'entitlements' for people.

    Lifetime permanent monitoring devices like a chip or external device would make society much safer

    We need to stop making the world a 'safe place' by making more unconstitutional laws.
    Just enforce the ones we already have and the problems go away.
    The world will *never ever* be a safe place.

    And what some call illegal porn is actualy a bogus law. 18 is NOT a magic age of maturity.
    Not true. And that is unconstitutional too.

    If anyone is so bad they cannot be trusted in society, then why are they still alive?
    Fix the problem (criminals), not treat the symptoms (illegal censorship).

    Lifetime permanent monitoring devices like a chip or external device would make society much safer. If monitoring was done by software so time and location was a known entity: deterrence would be a very real powerful tool against future acts of sexual misconduct. Even crazy people look both ways, not all of the time but the resulting knowledge that getting caught would be a real possibility would have the desired effect on many opportunistic sex offenders. And the ones that like to plan would find having a record of their time and location on file would make for a much safer world for children and women. Because they are the victims most of the time. Ask yourself ladies; if your car was to breakdown at night on a lonely road would you want every sex offender to be monitored for time and whereabouts? Most criminals do not want to get caught and even the sick ones show intelligence as they hide their acts from detection best they can.
    Ask UAG/lawmakers if such a law could be used? As long as no crimes were reported no use of the stored information would even be reviewed by authorities with jurisdiction.

    How can a child ever have her or his purity restored to them? Any monster who robs a child of their peace of mind, trust, and purity needs to be punished to the fullest extent. They should never be allowed to walk our streets or mingle in society. If they have earned money from their crimes, they need to cover the expenses of rehabilitation for the child as far as possible. This isn't just a crime against a child, but against their entire family and society.

    That's what happens in a sickened, repressed society.

    "whose childhood rape has been widely seen on the Internet". This definitively answers the question (in the afirmative) as to whether we have a sick society.
