    I find it interesting that some intellectual parents would seek to put more controls on the use of pornography for adult users, rather than parent their children in whatever moralist view they have, and protect their children by doing their job as a parent.

    First off, some say pornography should not be in the hands of children, as if there is some harm that could possibly come from viewing it. Contrary, the Reagan Commission found that pornography didn't harm anyone (Your tax dollars at work). The harm seems to be related to moralist draconian views of adults, who by the way, watch porn in their closets & tap dance in airport bathrooms. Without them, the pornography industry wouldn't exist. And the porn industry is massive when you think about it, from the mascara to short skirts and high heels decorated in rings tattoos & jewelry. Has society taught your child to be a harlot?

    Among these moralist adults we have parents frantically trying to prevent their children from the sexual taboos and getting their sweaty palms on pornography. I can support their views, however misguided, because a parent should attempt to raise their children and instill values in them.

    What I am objecting to is these parents or other moralists attempting to put restrictions on my freedoms, 1st & 4th Amendment rights, so their child won't be surfing pornography websites and suffer this imaginary harm that will be inflicted on them. :eusa_hand: They would like websites to somehow add more security measures to protect their children, and that are completely unnecessary in a free world.

    How about parents being the parent and adult in the household to watch their children, or provide policing programs that restrict their view and monitor their online use? How about communicating with your children and instilling your value judgments on them? It boils down to,... it is not my problem, not my children, and not my responsibility to sacrifice my freedoms for the lack of lazy poor parenting.

    Actually, if my parents had not of been watching a porn movie, I might not have gotten born.
