War on porn goes mobile

AVN:

WASHINGTON – On the same day the international trade association for the wireless telecommunications industry unveiled the Wireless Content Guidelines under which its U.S. members will deal with adult mobile content, elements of the anti-porn camp were meeting with the feds across town to discuss how to keep the erotic menace off the wireless airwaves.

The National Coalition for the Protection of Children & Families co-sponsored a summit about advanced technology at the Pope John Paul II Cultural Center here on Nov. 9. The summit focused on the distribution of pornographic content through handheld wireless devices.

In partnership with the National Law Center for Children and Families, the summit drew more than 40 leaders from America’s largest pro-family groups together, “offering them an opportunity for education on the challenges posed by advanced technology poses,” according to organizers. A variety of “solutions” were suggested, including drafting legislation to protect children and teens from the distribution of pornographic material.

What I want to know is where these anti-free speech groups get off having Orwellian names that usually involve a random combination of the words “children”, “family”, and “protect”. There's absolutely nothing “pro-family” about being “anti-porn”.

Porn cannot hurt you. My ability to download porn onto my phone at obscene rates from my mobile provider in no way impacts your marriage. It doesn't even have a deleterious effect on children, despite the oft repeated “its for the children” line.

No, you're just trying to turn porn into some kind of thought crime, and are perfectly willing to violate the first amendment to do it. And it's not the “for the children”. It's for you, so you can shove your religion down the throats of everyone, presumably to get in better with Jesus or Cthulu or whichever whack job you worship.

Being pro-family would mean supporting universal health care and social welfare programs, school activities funding and flexible hours and vacations for parents to spend time with their kids. Funny how they never seem to advocate for that stuff though. Hypocrites.
