Man arrested for showing porn to minors
« on: June 21, 2013, 12:27:58 pm »
Full story here.

Now, I bring this story up for two reasons.  One is the fact that Caryville is about a 30-40 drive from my house.

The other is a question.

Regardless of whether or not you would do so yourself, should allowing a minor to view porn be illegal?
I'm looking for patrons!  How can you help?  Check out my Patreon page! =)

As long as it's illegal for minors to view pornographic material, it should be illegal to aid them in doing so.

Personally, I'd rather they see two people fuckin' then people getting blown up, shot, beheaded, having their guts torn out, dismembered, set on fire, melted with acid, run over with a truck...you get my point.

However, I think it largely depends on the context in which said porn was provided. If it was a case of "Here ya go, have fun" then fine, whatever. If it was just to perv on them and try and wiggle into their pants...fuck no.

 depends on how old they are, if they're like prepubescent then hell no, if they are teens, they're probably watching/reading stuff online already, so whatever.
From international relations to religious rivalries, from marriage to athlete's foot, whatever the problem a fundy's first solution is usually violence.

It should be tied to age of consent.

Oh, please, I was looking at porn when I was nine.  And jerking my dick at six.  If that's harmful, then I should be in a straight jacket for self-abuse.
There is light and darkness in the world, to be sure.  However, there's no harm to be had in walking in the shade or shadows.

I think it has to do with intent.

There's a difference in debating whether it should be a crime for minors to look at porn, and whether it should be a crime to facilitate minors looking at porn. As noted in another thread, age, while not particularly correlated to maturity, is nonetheless probably the best indicator we have of such (at least that can be easily determined), and so the bar for being allowed to view pornographic material legally is set by it, and as long as it remains illegal for people below a given age to view porn, it should be illegal to facilitate that viewing.

My mindset on this is simple as Glenn Beck is crazy and mentally disturbed. It should be up to the parents. If the parents want to give or show their children porn at a certain age, go ahead. If you're not the parents, or you're not the same age as them or similar and just their friend, don't go showing them porn. My father gave me Playboy when I was 11 and I discovered internet porn when I was 12.
What I used to think was me is just a fading memory. I looked him right in the eye and said "Goodbye".
