Huh welcome to the real world, where you need actual proof when you make claims.

This isn't the real world, this is an internet message board, and I'm not signing up for LexisNexis in a vain attempt to prove you wrong and just have you deny credibility of the author AGAIN because it still doesn't meet you're standards for objectivity.

I can push it as far as I want if I'm just speculating, like you.

Then you can't make the claim that kids are capable of coming to their own decisions sans outside influence, as it's virtually impossible to form any kind of opinion in a vacuum.

it's quite unclear to which degree and how permanent the effects are going to be for seeing, say, a couple porno movies.

Then why don't you conduct your own study, that way you can come back and provide supporting materials for your own argument, namely; exposing minors to porno has no long term psychological effects. Otherwise, your argument is moot.

How is that "abuse"? That's not even clear at all. That's just you making wild guesses once again.

.... I just explained, in the plainest terms, what a change of attitude could lead to, and you blew me off to ask me why those results could POSSIBLY be bad.

I call bullshit. You really can't be this insane.

Maybe I will.
Though that was 30 years ago, he's probably dead by now.

You won't know until you try, now will you?

Sorry, but there's a plethora of red flags there. If this was an addiction, there would be thousands of people currently addicted to porn, it would wreak many lives and you'd hear about it OUTSIDE THE BIBLE BELT and Feminist rallies.

How's this for outside the Bible Belt? A study done by Stanford University in California and Duquesne University in Pennsylvania (which means they would have had local participants),

Why do I know you looked this up 3 seconds before you posted it?
Why didn't you post this first, instead of the wiki article which itself states "This paragraph is completely bonkers"?

Why would you even give me a wiki article when you have something more credible?
Stop lying, you didn't have a fucking clue about this article until you got called out for posting complete gibberish as "proof". No SANE person would hide good evidence and submit grade A dog shit in it's place.

But here, lemme counter your evidence with the same response you gave mine:

It's bullshit, unsubstantiated bullshit. Complete hippy propaganda, not based in fact, written by someone with a clear biased, bullshit agenda.

It's worthless. Try again.

in fact, maybe a diagnosable case right here?: http://gizmodo.com/357908/the-biggest-st ar-wars-collection-in-the-galaxy

Worthless.

I know how this game works.

Indeed.
Post unsubstantiated wiki article.
Get called out.
Post real article, pretending like you didn't look it up 5 seconds ago.

Your move Shirly.

As long as you don't cause harm, you can think WHATEVER YOU WANT about women. You can even hate them. You can fuck guys OUT OF SPITE and don't let any bible-thumping, bra-burning douchebags tell you that what turns you on is right or wrong.

And here's more food for thought: I claim that women think men are only good for money and that it's wrong to show rich men in movies because it gives women the impression that men will always buy them everything.

How that's not even WORSE? They don't even like ME they like my money! At least if you objectify a woman, you'd like HER anyway.

FUN, FUN TIME.

In the case they we'd both be biased, I think it's safer to not pass any laws or advocate restrictions. You always need a damn good reason to take away people's rights, no matter their age.

So on that front alone, even if we're BOTH super-biased, I think I'd still win.

of the author AGAIN because it still doesn't meet you're standards for objectivity.

Haha MY standard? I doubt you could convince anyone with a reference to a study without having the study in hand yourself.
I'd believe you if there was some sort of evidence landslide but it seems pretty divided and subjective.

Then you can't make the claim that kids are capable of coming to their own decisions sans outside influence

That's why we live in a society. They'd get porn, but they'll get everyone's values too. I don't see how watching porn will undo all the parenting work or the laws. Porn's influence would only be bad IN a vacuum where that's all they ever see of sex.

Then why don't you conduct your own study

I don't think they'd let me : (


.... I just explained, in the plainest terms, what a change of attitude could lead to

Haha no you didn't. You said "abuse" when it wasn't brought up. Then I guess you forgot what you were talking about.

Unless you mean the "objectification of women" which you failed to explain.

So again, what are the concrete "abusive" actions? Cause "objectification of women" is a VIEWPOINT and a THOUGHT and you know what we call people who police people's thoughts?

Fascists.

How's this for outside the Bible Belt?

What the fuck? That shit is retarded. Am I a television addict if I watch tv 11 hours a week? Again this seems like a shitty article written by some idiot who think porn will destroy the world.

Oh shit I'm an internet addict, I'm on the internet every day! If you asked me 10 questions about the internet, you'd find that I AM BIASED IN FAVOR OF THE INTERNET! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

For people with kids, porn helps with natural family planning. (at least for males)

I don't get any of the arguments for keeping kids away from porn.

This is more tricky. We have a teen who spend long hours on the net, but we live on an island so there's safety margin. I think one can grow up a bit fast surfing the net.

Why?
You hear all the time how kids shouldn't see tits on tv or how it would destroy them to stumble on a porn site. But seriously, why? What the fuck are they gonna do?

It's a loss of innocence. It's about children growing up too quick. But when i was young i couldn't wait. My partner is more protective. Mothers are like that.


What's the argument for pushing sex ed to as late as possible? As far as I remember, as a kid, me and my friends were pretty keen on seeing a nude pair of tits. It was in fact AWESOME.

What part of the body is that again? Where can I get a refund if I was issued a faulty innocence?

I don't care about growing up, I care that I'm going to die.

Being a kid sucks. You don't grow up from porn, you grow up from having responsibilities.

The "theory" is that loss of innocence leads to teen pregnancy. Teens meeting "all manner of people" online and possibly getting into adult activities to sustain adult relationships..

..yes, and having responsibilities of your own kids to worry over ranks as number 1 on that list.

But you're right, navigating the net with skill far outweighs the need for concern, say compared to having a child roam the city streets at night.

Well then it has nothing to do with the abstract and subjective concept of innocence, now does it? Be careful with this issue unless you fall with Proteas and his moral patrol. Don't use moral judgments to make your decision.

The correct line of argument is:

- does porn increase the rate of teen pregnancies?
- does porn increase women abuse?
- does porn make people break laws or cause harm to others in any significant way?

As far as I can tell: no. Not at all. There's no study to back that up. It's always shit like "well this twisted fucker had a ton of porn!". And you're like "hey porn! My mom told me that was bad, I guess she was right!".
So, what then? If he had a huge DVD collection of Star Trek remastered episodes, we'd blame that shit?

And why do we never blame porn for someone's awesome sexual fortitude? Like, wow look at that George Cloney, boning those women, he must watch a lot of porn to get those great ideas!

It's ridiculous the second you turn the argument around, but somehow it explains deviancy perfectly?

But you're right, navigating the net with skill far outweighs the need for concern, say compared to having a child roam the city streets at night.

I don't know that your kid is that unsafe at night anyway. Probably more kids die at the pool than by the hand of some twisted pedophile. But holy shit those stories are horrible.

People really don't give any credit to kids. They're impressionable, but that's a GOOD thing. That's your chance to give them good values. This whole argument that porn will warp them somehow assumes that even if the kid's minds are totally pliable, they're somehow resilient enough to ignore everything the parent says is good/bad and just go and beat women and stab kids for pokemon cards. Way easier to blame porn and Mortal Kombat than just outright bad luck or shitty parenting.

I want a protable nuke, it would rule.

So since I'm bored, here's a list of possible future techs. Tell me if civilians should be able to own them:

- Personal force field that prevents people from shooting at you
- Invisibility cloak
- Mind control gun
- A gun that turns other people into homosexuals ( rad )
- Catapults ( but smaller, cause it's the future )
- A shoulder lazer ( like the predator )
- An exosuit that makes you super-strong and super-fast
- A mech ( for grocery shopping. Why not? )

cool

To take a page from your book -- there's no such thing as "good values" so your argument is worthless. It's purely subjective, opinion-based morality and status-quo ethical bullshit based on popular social trends instead of science. It's pure fascism to tell kids what's "good" and what's "bad" so you should just let them figure it out for themselves. In some places, the objectification and rape of women is even considered virtuous... so what, are you trying to be the thought police or something, telling kids what counts as "good behavior" and what doesn't? How unscientifical.

if everyone owns one, why not?

- Invisibility cloak

, easily combated with thermal googles

- Mind control gun

no,

- A gun that turns other people into homosexuals ( rad )

you can own one, but cant use it without consent of the person.

- Catapults ( but smaller, cause it's the future )

yes

- A shoulder lazer ( like the predator )

if theres force felids then why not

- An exosuit that makes you super-strong and super-fast

most definitly, although everyone else would have one too.

- A mech ( for grocery shopping. Why not? )

how could you not live with this.


cool

only thing im against is the mind control device,

but I could change my mind depeding on how fast/ ovious it is.

like dose it take over minds instantly? can you fight it back(like inside your mind)? dose it charge up, is there a loud high pitch noise when its chargeing?ecT:

I thought i made a point on the second one. You argued that viewing women as objects of sexual domination was not inherently wrong... When i suggested 'twisted veiws on sexual relations' i was referring to the psychological acceptability of dominating women by men, in a way, our modern sexual culture that reflects this violent relationship seems to both support and refute the 'porn 4 childeren is bad' argument... On one hand it possibly suggests that the rise in the popularity and occurrence of female abuse occurred independently, on the other hand, you could argue a case that this rise in new thought coincided with the rise of the internet which made porn something considerably less difficult to get one's hands on.

AAAAnnnywaaay... If you're only questioning the objectivity of the rising veiw by boys AND girls that women are objects of sexual domination why are you not questioning the objectivity of female abuse. Your arguments might be good but how silly is it to try and argue that the rise of a particular thought process on the sexual relations between men and women, as influenced [and i assume this is not up for debate] by the rise in youth access to pornography, would not in some way be related to the potential rise in the abuse of women? Arguing otherwise would be like saying that the rise in fundamentalist ideology in a region wouldn't lead to the rise of fundamentalism a political influence.

Why would I start beating women more if I am just using them for sex?

Where are the stats for that? I claim there's none.

As far as I know, wife-beatings are really really common in... muslim countries.. Who incidentally watch a lot of porn... oh wait...

And no one has yet defined "objectifying a woman". I don't know what the hell it means and I suspect no one else here knows.

So let's look it up!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sexual_obje ctification

Wow look at that, a turd sandwich once again! I told you guys it was just a matter of opinion, but no, apparently Proteas had determined that "objectification of woman" is really bad and should be avoided. Welcome to the tool shed.

"about marketers' influence on teen girls. "All this sex gives a misinformed notion of what it means to be grown-up." Studies show that kids who consume this kind of sex in the media inherit more traditional views of gender-boys as dominant, girls as submissive, in the bedroom and beyond."

If i am not mistaken gender abuse is rooted in the issue of a power struggle. Abuse itself occurs either because the abuser is drunk or because they consider it a societal norm to dominate women, emotionally and sexually.

huh, you don't find that pathetically subjective and vague?
And "more traditional views"? Haha, what does that mean? Like, before porn, people had this view that women were submissive, and now we should blame porn for doing that?

Not in the least bit. You wrote a piss poor excuse for a topic, backed it up with flimsy egoist logic and ethics, supplied not a bit of evidence to defend your points, would not defend your points because you were constantly shifting the subject to why everyone else was wrong for disagreeing with you, acted intentionally obtuse about the simplest of statements, and wrote off as bullshit even the most liberally written of studies that still contradicted your viewpoint.

You're a troll.

Know the great thing about wiki? The footnotes:
http://www.apa.org/pi/wpo/sexualizations um.html

Yes, it's such a piece of shit matter of opinion that the APA formed a task force to counter the threats.
There's a nice big header there for ya "Evidence for the Sexualization of Girls"

With a reference list a mile fucking long.

" I told you guys it was just a matter of opinion"

EVERY SPECIALIST ON THE SUBJECT DISAGREES WITH YOU.
You'd think with your stance on science as it is, you'd at least hear out something that, what seems like the entire APA, has agreed upon without scoffing and saying "it's bullshit".

Course, I know you. Logic and reason have never been your strong suits.

Let this be the final nail in the coffin:
There's an article from the APA, with references up the ass, stating evidence for, and consequences of the objectification of women.

Pox thinks it's a "turd sandwitch".

Therefore, it can either be concluded that Pox knows more about the subject than every researcher on it, or that he's completely ignoring sound evidence.....much the same way religious people ignore evidence, might I add.

Congrats Pox. You've got as much faith in your own Ego as other people do in God.

Narcissism, thy name is you.

Why?
You hear all the time how kids shouldn't see tits on tv or how it would destroy them to stumble on a porn site. But seriously, why? What the fuck are they gonna do?

Stare at the t.v. like a six year old who just saw Santa.

What's the argument for pushing sex ed to as late as possible? As far as I remember, as a kid, me and my friends were pretty keen on seeing a nude pair of tits. It was in fact AWESOME. That is the opposite of "traumatizing".

It makes no sense. You need to teach sex ed. I don't get these people who are against it, they are always crazy Christians who are completely against anything that can be linked to sex. Sex ed. teaches about sexually transmitted diseases, which would get people to stop having sex if it had any effect at all.

And I also don't get the "innocence" argument and how that is tied to sex.

I can tell you as a 15 year old, we are less innocent with regard to sex than any other humans on the face of the planet. Maybe you've forgotten, but bunnies think about sex less than us.

And for that matter, why censor certain web pages and contents for kids? Why can't a 2 year old play Mortal Kombat? What the fuck is he gonna do? Try to uppercut the head of other kids? Kids already beat the shit out of other kids, they don't need video games to get the idea. In fact it's the kids who don't play video games who beat up the ones who play the most games.

The thing about video games is that it is a scapegoat. It is easy to say that if you play GTA you will steal a car, because people have lost the ability to think for themselves. Anyone who wants to argue about that, answer me this, where did the people from GTA get the idea for carjackings? Video games did not invent violence, if anything they give you an idea of what it is really like.

EXPLAIN THIS UNIVERSE WE LIVE IN TO ME

I would, but I am still trying to figure it out.

Yes, it's such a piece of shit matter of opinion that the APA formed a task force to counter the threats.

Haha did you read that article? That was published by a panel composed entirely of women apparently. Didn't know science was gender-biased.

You know what? If women aren't content with the state of media, then they can start their own businesses and set the trends themselves instead of trying to appeal to authority to get a shortcut and decide what goes on in magazines, movies, commercials, games etc. They have all the same fucking rights as men AND MORE but they're STILL complaining. So far the biggest "danger" is that girls are depressed and distracted about their image.
OH PLEASE, ANYTHING BUT THAT! God forbid they'd join a gym! NOOO! Losing weight? Insane I tell you!

Btw it would be so funny if the situation was reversed and women had all the smart jobs and men were sluts and they still complained that women aren't ever shown as desired by men. "oh women in movies and on tv are always seen chasing men like fools! That is ridiculous and gives a clear bias that women are sex-craving losers! Many women seek sex in early years at all costs, making relations terrible! boohoo!"

This whole movement is just a double-standard and completely biased.

When's the last time you saw a stupid woman on tv or in a movie? When's the last time you saw a woman just fall in love completely with a man in a movie? No, there's always this bullshit where the guy is an idiot and the girl resists and taunts endlessly, all the while showing how smart, capable and independant she is. But the second she shows a piece of skin, then OH NO SHE'S BEING OBJECTIFIED, YOU'VE CORRUPTED A GENERATION OF GIRLS WHO'LL CHOOSE STUPID JOBS LIKE PSYCHOLOGIST INSTEAD OF GOING INTO MATHS AND CHEMISTRY.

This is BULLSHIT.

Btw what does this have to do with the effects of a kid seeing an eyefull of tits again?

The problem is contradiction. Allowing children to see porn contradicts the puritan values that our country was unfortunately founded upon, and would also contradict the church's claim that premarital sex is sinful, and that lust is the work of the devil. Honestly if our society didn't have its head shoved so far up its own ass in regards to what is illegal and taboo (I refer to things such as marijuana laws and the recent law that if a cigarette is smoked in a movie it automaticaly gets an "R" rating... cmon people) than it wouldn't be such a suprise to a child when they first discover what sex is. We have parents telling their children that there is a freaking stork droping kids down the chimney. There is very little difference in the problems caused by a child in our society first discovering porn and the problems caused in a child discovering santa claus and the tooth fairy are not real. Same basic principal, but the church and our society add a whole other level of discomfort and awkwardness to the situation.
