Should internet users “opt in” to access porn? – NEW RADIO INTERVIEW WITH PORNLAND AUTHOR GAIL DINES

20130809-135759.jpg

RADIO INTERVIEW: The UK now makes Internet users opt in if they want porn. Anti-porn activist Gail Dines explains how this works! She also explains why it’s a great approach! Go Gail! Go team! 🙂

[CBC] — David Cameron has introduced measures to require British citizens to opt in to view pornography, and some want Canada to follow suit.

Anti-porn advocate Gail Dines joins us to explain what is going on and why she supports it. Gigaom writer David Meyer counters that the measures won’t work, and are essentially an attack on our privacy.

FBI announces 150 arrests have been made in a child prostitution crackdown that rescued 105 teens

20130803-145007.jpg

105 children 13-17 have recently been rescued in sextrafficking ring bust. This undercover operation is the biggest one to date! Check out the details below, and remember, pornography — especially “teen porn” — glorifies, legitimizes and promotes child prostitution, human trafficking and child sexual abuse, so if someone is against those horrific abuses then they must also be anti-porn!

[CNN] — In what it called its largest crackdown to date on child prostitution, the FBI announced Monday that a nationwide operation over the weekend resulted in 150 arrests, with 105 children rescued.

Authorities said the operation, which took investigators to race tracks and truck stops, also targeted the use of social media sites for child prostitution activity.

Overall, the three-day undercover roundup Operation Cross Country took place in 76 cities and involved 230 law enforcement units, according to the FBI.

“Child prostitution remains a persistent threat to children across America,” said Ron Hosko, assistant director of the FBI’s Criminal Investigative Division. “This operation serves as a reminder that these abhorrent crimes can happen anywhere and that the FBI remains committed to stopping this cycle of victimization and holding the criminals who profit from this exploitation accountable.”

He said at a news conference that a prime environment for child prostitution is major sporting events such as the Super Bowl, where authorities had “multiple recovery of children” in the past.

The operation was the largest sweep to date in the FBI’s Innocence Lost National Initiative, according to Hosko.

It included 28 searches with 129 seizures of cash, drugs, vehicles and firearms, he said, and those arrested face a variety of charges, including pimping.
The ages of children rescued in this, the seventh iteration of Operation Cross Country ranged from 13 to 17, Hosko said.

He credited the increased success of the latest operation in part to an expansion of the probe to websites such as backpage.com, which he called a forum “where pimps and exploiters gather.”

There are no ‘happy hookers’: In US sex trafficking is complex, brainwashes victims

20130725-152820.jpg

READ this powerful and very moving article about how pimps manipulate and abuse their victims, which is explained by an ex-pimp!

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please remember that pornography fuels prostitution and sex trafficking, so it you’re against those horrific abuses, you need to also be anti-porn! Also remember, the idea of “happy hookers” is a HUGE MYTH!

VICTIMIZED BY SHREWD COERCION: (article excerpt)

“You’re being manipulated from the beginning,” says Douglas. “The pimps know exactly what they’re doing. It’s part of the psychological and emotional manipulation. Right when you start feeling like you need to get out of the life and go, they do something that keeps you hooked in.”

Aside from the promise of affection, coercion tactics including sleep and food deprivation, forced drug use, and physical and mental abuse. Through various means, traffickers “brainwash” their victims.

When explaining why someone might defend or refuse to leave their pimp, Douglas says the closest phenomenon she can compare such a mental state to is the diagnosis of Stockholm Syndrome. This is a psychological condition likened to post traumatic stress disorder in which victims come to identify with their captors and abusers.

“I’ve always related the experience to that of [kidnapping victim] Elizabeth Smart,” Douglas says. Smart was abducted by a couple as a young girl, but remained with them for years, despite enduring abuse, even though she likely had opportunities to escape.

“I try to make them understand through her story. She was kidnapped, raped, [‘married’] by her captor, and basically created a family with him. She was free to move about and was not looking for help. The help found her. I think she had Stockholm Syndrome and I think that’s what happened in this New York trial,” she said of the more recent case.

Douglas, who will be featured in Tricked, a feature length documentary about sex trafficking set to be released this fall, has survived the psychological abuse of her ordeal. Yet, women who are not able to break free of the mental bondage of sex trafficking might not fare as well without the support of more supportive laws.

Also other anti-porn measures to be enacted as well! Check out the highlights and details below, and please LIKE, COMMENT and SHARE to help spread this AMAZING news! Thanks! 🙂

Note: Now we really hope that all other countries in the world will follow this powerful example of doing the right thing on behalf of women, children, and all of society! 🙂

HIGHLIGHTS:

Automatic web filters for new customers, and opt in for existing accounts by 2014.
Filters fitted to all new mobile phones.
Ban on adult content for public wi-fi.
New offence of possession of porn simulating rape.
New powers for watchdogs to access heavily encrypted sites.

———————-
[Daily Mail] – Pornography depicting rape will be outlawed as part of a government crackdown on web filth.

David Cameron today unveiled a raft of reforms to shield children from ‘poisonous’ websites that are ‘corroding childhood’.

In a victory for the Daily Mail, the Prime Minister announced every householder connected to the internet will have their access to online porn blocked unless they ask to receive it.

By the end of next year, all 19million UK homes currently connected to the net will be contacted by service providers and told they must say whether family-friendly filters that block all porn sites should be switched on or off.

From the end of this year, all new customers setting up a broadband account or switching provider will have the filters automatically switched on unless they opt to disable them to allow sites with ‘adult content’.

‘The Daily Mail has campaigned hard to make internet search engine filters “default on”. Today they can declare that campaign a success,’ Mr Cameron said.

‘We are taking action to help clean up the internet and protect a generation of children from often extreme online pornography.’

Other measures announced by Mr Cameron today included adult content filters on all new mobile phones, a bar on accessing adult content through public wi-fi and calling in Ofcom to regulate industry progress.

Internet giants such as Google were told they have a ‘moral duty’ to do more to stop child abuse images being accessed.

Pornography involving simulated rape will be banned both online and offline, and online videos will be subject to the same rules as those sold in sex shops.

There will be stronger powers for watchdogs to investigate the ‘hidden internet’ – heavily encrypted forums and pages that allow abusers to cover their tracks.

There has been growing alarm at evidence that a third of children have accessed online pornography by the time they reach ten.

Six in ten parents now say they are worried or very worried about their sons and daughters seeing violent and sexual material on the web.

In his landmark speech at the NSPCC, Mr Cameron said action is more urgent than ever because web access has ‘changed profoundly’ in recent years.

‘Not long ago, access to the internet was mainly restricted to the PC in the corner of the living room, with a beeping dial-up modem, downstairs in the house where parents could keep an eye on things,’ he said.

Today, there is material freely available that is a ‘direct danger to our children’.

The Prime Minister added: ‘I’m not making this speech because I want to moralise or scaremonger, but because I feel profoundly as a politician, and as a father, that the time for action has come. This is, quite simply, about how we protect our children and their innocence.’

Mr Cameron announced that in future deciding about family-friendly filters will be a required part of the set-up process for installing an internet connection.

When existing web users are contacted, family-friendly filters will be pre-selected.

Only an adult will be able to change the filter settings and the account holder will receive a confirmation email. Some ISPs are offering text alerts, in case children hack into the account.

Any adult ignoring the alerts will have filters installed automatically.

‘By the end of this year, when someone sets up a new broadband account the settings to install family-friendly filters will be automatically selected. If you just click “next” or “enter”, then the filters are automatically on,’ Mr Cameron said.

‘And, in a really big step forward, all the ISPs have rewired their technology so that once your filters are installed, they will cover any device connected to your home internet account.

‘No more hassle of downloading filters for every device, just one click protection. One click to protect your whole home and keep your children safe.

‘Once those filters are installed, it should not be the case that technically literate children can just flick the filters off at the click of a mouse without anyone knowing.

‘So we have agreed with industry that those filters can only be changed by the account holder, who has to be an adult. So an adult has to be engaged in the decisions.
