My local news has been following, what is fast becoming a investigation of a child pornography ring.
The news casters have told us that it involves videos of children being bathed as well as other images. One has to wonder (since they can't show the images on TV and we obviously can't view them without becoming criminals) is this truly a vast problem or just another modern witch hunt?
So just how do we define Child pornography?
The overall trend on both the federal and state levels is toward broader definitions of child pornography with increased prosecutions and harsher penalties for those connected to it.
The legal definition of sexually explicit conduct does not require that an image depict a child engaging in sexual activity. A picture of a naked child may constitute illegal child pornography if it is sufficiently sexually suggestive, and is a visual depiction involving the use of a minor, or one appearing to be a minor, engaging in sexually explicit conduct.
Pornography however has been defined bu the courts as anything sexual arousing...
We live in a world where sex itself has no real definition. Some people would say that sex is inserting a penis into a vagina, (we all remember Clinton's assertion that He did not have sex with that woman) others assert that inserting a penis into anything is sex. (which would mean there is no such thing as Lesbian sex)
On the other end of the spectrum, there are people, that believe holding hands or any touching is sexual act. Farther off the spectrum, there are those that believe that verbal communication is in fact the beginning of sexual acts as well as looking at someone in "a certain way" is sexually offensive.
Summary if pornography is defined as any image that that causes sexual arousal, or offends someone sexually, then certainly we must ban all images real or animated that portray any human beings or their clothes. (shoe, underwear swimwear jeans and fabric fetishes such as Fur Leather, latex, spandex, nylons, as well as whips and chains) and even uniforms police, fireman, catholic girl uniforms (which may explain why they say it's illegal to photograph Police officers) and still we haven't mentioned Jewelry and other accessories...
Certainly, there really is nothing left in this world that doesn't get some sicko all sticky in their pants. "Surely there are people around the world who fetishize every single piece of an clothing." I'm not saying, that Child Pornography doesn't exist, looking through my parents photo albums, I have to wonder why they were never jailed and the legal answer is The internet had not yet been invented.
The FBI has a new strategy to catch people for online child pornography, For almost two weeks, the FBI ran one of the internetís largest child pornography websites and allowed users to download thousands of illicit images and videos. The FBI Just Gave 215,000 Sickos Child Porn,
