America raising its kids on porn - Washington Times

America is raising a generation of children on porn- and your child just might be one of them. According to the London School of Economics, nine out of 10 teens who go online will view pornography. The Kaiser Family Foundation reports that 70 percent of those who viewed porn stumbled across it - many while innocently doing their homework - and had not been looking for it.

The purveyors of hard-core porn are so fixated on creating addicts out of our sons and daughters that they have made it virtually impossible for children to escape their clutches.

....

The negative effects of porn usage on children are clear. A Heritage Foundation study reports that the harms include: overestimating the prevalence of practices such as group sex, bestiality and sado-masochism; perceiving promiscuity as normal; developing cynical attitudes about love; and viewing the idea of raising children and having a family as unattractive prospects. Another horrible consequence is that boys begin to view girls as nothing more than sex objects, and our little girls begin to think that being one is how they get ahead in the world.

....

Today's wonderful technologies such as the Internet have many benefits for our children - the world and all its wonders are magically at their fingertips. But these advances also mean that parents have to be proactive in fighting those who misuse them. We must not sit idly by when our children are being targeted.

The solution to a huge part of the problem is easy: download a reliable Internet filter.

....


The great news is that it only takes a few keystrokes and a few minutes to download a filter that will keep the scum out of your house.


And out of your library.

Once again you lower the level of conversation by taking a very on point article that makes some very good points and trying to connect it to your issue. This article is not about your issue its about the rampant porn, real porn not what you decide is porn, that is all over the cesspool that the internet has become.

I realy wish that you had a more reasoned ability to discuss or debate a topic. Most of your arguments are shallow and poorly thought out.

"a filter can help you stop the vast majority of the pollution from infecting your home. Of course, you as the mom or dad should be the ultimate filter"

Exactly.

By linking to this article you support your critics claims. You as a parent should filter your childrens reading materials from the library, not someone else. Yet, you continue to waste taxpayer resources with your crusade.

So, if you succeed and "porn" is to be removed from the library, you will ask for the removal of the King James Bible right?

It's definitely your prerogative as a parent to purchase and use a filter on your own Internet computer, but the issue of filtering computers in a library is a whole other bag of worms. I'll second Mike's quote from the article re: mom and dad being the "ultimate filter." That filter should be in place as far as your kids' searches on the Internet, in the library, in the video store, etc.
