Legalisation of child porn: For or against?

3
A report published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behaviour argues that the legal availability of child pornography in Denmark, the Czech Republic and Japan reduces the frequency of sex crimes against children. The study suggests "artificially produced materials,” not children, be used in the creation of pornography.

Coming from a country where prostitution is legal, I cannot help but consider whether the legal availability of child pornography is the lesser of two evils. However, I wonder whether the fall in the frequency of sex crimes against children is because the frequency had indeed fallen or that fewer reports were made due to a change in attitude towards pedophilia, i.e. people think it is normal so they do not report it.

Unlike legal prostitution in Singapore in which the parties involved are consenting adults, pedophilia is unnatural and child pornography feeds unnatural urges. Furthermore, some people might be tempted sexually assault children after watching child pornography.

I've considered it and this is my stand: I am against pedophilia and child pornography. Children have the right to be children and not be seen or used as sex objects!

By the way, I have an update on a previous post about a Singaporean scholar caught with child porn. [See Some scholars are stupid: Guilty as charged]

Yu-Kym,

I agree with you completly.

One needs to look deeper into why child porn, and all porn is rampant in so called civilized societies.

Much is related to changing attitudes towards women.

Consider, women dress the way they do today because someone, over half a century ago, decided they wanted to dumb down civilized nations, and convincing people to be less concerned about how they dress is one way of doing it.

Our society today suffers from an acute lack of critical thinking skills, and there is a definite connection between the way we dress and how we think.

If we dress like slobs, we soon begin to think like slobs. No discipline of body – no discipline of mind. This situation did not come about by accident, but was a well orchestrated plan to help destroy our society. In her book "Dressing With Dignity”, Colleen Hammond explains this point in detail.

"Women need to understand that men react differently than women in regards to modesty. Mrs. Hammond discusses this phenomenon in her book. The following quote illustrates the point.

”Women must learn that men are “wired” differently and the way a woman dresses can have a definite impact on how a man reacts to her. As an example, if a man is watching a TV talk show or interview, and sees a modestly dressed woman sitting on a chair or couch and she is wearing a dress or skirt that extends several inches below the knees, she is viewed as a total woman and the mans concentration is on her, as a complete person, and on what she is saying or whatever her purpose is for being on that particular show.

However, if you take the same woman and shorten her skirt so that it is two or three inches above the knees, then the man perceives her in a different manner, more as a sexual object. He no longer views her as a whole person worthy of respect. Instead, he sees her as a collection of parts, with some parts drawing more attention than others. This sexual “evaluation” all takes place in split second in the brain, but has the effect of distracting the man from what she is saying, because her appearance is sending a different message. And the more immodest the manner of dress, the greater the distraction.


Child porn most often grows out of exposure to adult porn.

Children lose the innocence that is nature and nuture lives within them. Sexualized children become commodities.

Lies of Pornography:

Pornography is just another form of entertainment.
Pornography is normal.
Pornography won’t hurt me.
Pornography won’t affect my behavior.
Pornography won’t hurt my family.
Pornography will satisfy.
Pornography won’t lead to more dangerous activities.
A little Pornography is all right.
I can stop whenever I want to, or, I can’t stop.
I can keep this a secret and […]

Addictive personalities of all type sucumb to child porn. Many, far to many become pedophiles and sexually assault young children.

Thank you Yu-Kym for taking a brave stand on this issue! ! !

Anybody who seeks sex with an underage person or child or an easily manipulated person, is simply - SICK in the head.

To legalise child porn is equal to saying it is acceptable.

Thank you David for high lighting the Lies of pornography in this blog.
