    I'm not sure how you would plan to implement that. Digital eyes-scanners that read the identity of the computer user, before displaying a web page? A fingerprint scanner on the monitor? You must say that you are 18 or older in the US to legally view pornography websites. Guess what? Teenagers lie. I mean, really, how? Sure, there's parental block software, but do you really think it's foolproof? I'm not figuring out exactly what you want then.

    It's illegal to view nudity by wire, but let's look at some other laws in my state of NC.
    ___________

    The mere possession of a lottery ticket is illegal in North Carolina and may result in a $2,000 fine.

    No one may be a professional fortune-teller, and if one wishes to pursue the practice as an amateur, it must be practiced in a school or church.

    Itís against the law to sing off key.

    Elephants may not be used to plow cotton fields.

    While having sex, you must stay in the missionary position and have the shades pulled.

    If a man and a woman who arenít married go to a hotel/motel and register themselves as married then, according to state law, they are legally married.

    All couples staying overnight in a hotel must have a room with double beds that are at least two feet apart.

    It is illegal to have sex in a churchyard.

    Oral sex is considered a crime against nature.

    A marriage can be declared void if either of the two persons is physically impotent.

    Persons in possession of illegal substances must pay taxes on them.

    A three dollar tax must be paid on all white goods sold.

    Organizations may not hold their meetings while the members present are in costume.

    Bingo games may not last over 5 hours unless it is held at a fair.

    Serving alcohol at a bingo game is not allowed.

    City Laws in North Carolina

    Barber
    Fights between cats and dogs are prohibited.

    Chapel Hill
    It is a misdemeanor to urinate or defecate publicly.

    Charlotte
    Women must have their bodies covered by at least 16 yards of cloth at all times.

    Dunn
    It is illegal to drive cars through city cemeteries for pleasure.

    No one may visit their departed loved ones late at night.
    _________

    And the list goes on and on. Point is, of course, how are these supposed to be enforced?

    There are a few places where murder and rape are illegal and those crimes still occur. It will be illegal to display a nude without rating the directory on the server where the file is and all browsers will be required to follow website ratings.

    It will still be avoided. The law is already written but not enforced. It will be easier to stop kids from seeing Internet PORN than stopping all rape and will result in fewer rapes happening.

    Internet PORN and even nudity will finally be regulated by next year.

    Sorry if that impending regulation upsets you but tough turkey? The case has been in the United States Federal Courts since July 22, 2009 and is NOT going away.

    The Attorney General and the FCC are both already VERY ware this will soon occur, as is Google Inc.

    What a load of crap. This coming from a person who shot nude photos (if I read all of the above correctly).

    The reason minors view pornography has nothing to do with technology or web site ratings. It is because they are unsupervised and allowed to run rampant by parents who are either unwilling or too stupid to understand how a computer works. My kid has a kick-butt laptop at his disposal... in the living room where I can see what's going on at all times. He is NEVER allowed to take that laptop into his room and close the door.

    Did you ever look at a Playboy magazine as a kid? They were distributed in wrappers and only sold to adults. So how did I get my hands on them as a kid of 11? Amazing, I was looking at porn when I was 11 and there was no Internet (it was 1974).

    Stop hiding behind technology as the culprit. Kids get their hands on porn, alcohol, and drugs because someone in the parent community is allowing it, plain and simple. And don't tell me kids are "hiding" it either, that's BS. You know when your kid is strung out on drugs or alcohol or you're just plain not watching.

    This is along the lines of rating CD's for offensive lyrics. Yeah, lots of good that did.

    Teach your kids right from wrong and they'll police themselves. My son won't curse (even though he listens to death metal bands who do nothing but curse), actively campaigns against drugs and alcohol, and even cigarettes, and still thinks girls are "icky" (his word, not mine).

    Thank you.


    God, or nature, or whatever pleases you best endowed me with an amazing bullsh*t detector. I grew up playing on a cowfarm, and stepping in dungpiles. Maybe that's why I can smell a pile of it a mile away.

    Maybe I'm just lucky.

    I find it sad that your child is embarrassed by the human form.

    If your pictures were not pornographic in nature, then there should have been no problem with your child seeing them. At that point you sit your kid down and explain that the human body, portrayed in the artistic way, is a beautiful thing and should be celebrated- not hidden away. Granted, that doesn't mean you feed your kids naked art pictures every day, but if they should trip across art (and who really defines what that is, by the way- my art may be your porn), they then have the tools on how to handle it. Women in the "old countries" of Europe were having babies at 12 and 13 years old out of necessity. Somehow, our ancestors handled naked people and sex much easier than we do today. Again, I'm not saying you feed it to your kids- I'm saying if they trip across it, the world hasn't ended.

    You are also correct in saying that the print edition of Playboy is struggling... as is The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Newsweek Magazine, and any other print medium. Perhaps you should regulate the 24x7 updating of news web sites also, so that the newspapers don't struggle? Maybe we should regulate the world of digital photography so that we can keep selling film, also? Technology advances and a medium begins to become obsolete- but that is syntax, not context. Last I saw, Playboy had a thriving web site. And we were still doing photography without film. The medium has changed, but the activity is still there.

    You are absolutely correct in saying that there are many places the Internet is available. However, between school and his friend's houses, it is (or should be) always supervised. I know they watch it like a hawk in school. If it is not, he understands, and has been given the tools to deal with the situation and knows the consequences if he does not. When a friend of his did trip across some mild porn, the situation was dealt with for both kids and was not repeated (we also employ tools to monitor such access, and so do his friend's parents). The big message here is when you restrict things, they go looking. When you give them the tools to deal with it, the curiosity dies away pretty quickly.

    My son hears bad language all the time- just drive down the street in the summer with your windows rolled down and one driver will be cursing at another at some point in time. It's part of the environment, as is sex and naked people. He chooses to hear it, and take the high road. He understands that it is usually an expression of anger, it does happen, and that the world is not free of bad language (I've actually turned it into an art form if I do say so myself!!!). He is not a hypocrite in the least. In fact, I don't mind if he says a bad word in anger, heck, it'll help to keep his blood pressure down. He knows to respect other people and never curse at them- but if he says a bad word because he dropped a 50 pound box on his foot, that's kinda OK. In the future, I hope he does teach me many things. He's a great kid.

    In the end, I'd rather have my son see people loving each other than killing each other, which is what is portrayed in the news and 90% of all PG and PG-13 movies and TV shows. Maybe if viewing sex was legal, and viewing violence was not, the world would be a better place.

    I received a PM from Curtis on this and asked him to please not message me again - So I'll leave the debate on this one. I will close with my DA's general response to "I'm gonna sue you" or "I'm gonna take this to the supreme court!"

    Good luck with that.
