We support comprehensive and age appropriate sex education, but we do NOT support teaching CHILDREN to use PORNOGRAPHY or ILLEGAL DRUGS, like this “adolescent sexuality conference” does! ~~

    [KOIN] — While there was a session on learning how to put on a condom and make a dental dam, a workshop where the speaker brought students to a porn website and taught them to program virtual women really upset the student.

    “When you press a certain command, it tells her to perform various sexual acts, um, and so that was very disturbing,” she said.

    Audio of keynote speaker Silverberg giving detailed directions on how to make an avatar for virtual sex.

    “You can program her to do whatever you want to say, if you don’t want to say, ‘give me a blow job or something,” said Silverberg. […]

    “All kinds of speakers about Internet porn, using Internet sex toys, using meth as is shown in this book for when you’re engaging in sex. It encourages using meth because it helps your sexual drive and what not in here,” said Maloney. “It says in this booklet that was handed out and given out to all young people.”

~~ Yikes! Very disturbing, don’t you think?? No wonder we have a problem with epidemic pornography use, abuse, and addiction (both of porn and drugs) — if even EDUCATORS are mainstreaming porn and drugs by endorsing them to TEENS! Note that this conference is being partially paid for by tax-payer dollars. 0-0!

Porn exposure can be VERY harmful to children, as this tragic story of a teen boy almost driven to SUICIDE shows.

~ Lei Chung, 16, from China, had to share a bedroom with his parents

~ Says his father would watch pornographic films every night

~ Even if he covered his eyes, he could still hear the sound from the TV

~ The images have haunted him ever since and he tried to commit suicide

~ Has now been diagnosed a ‘new’ form of post-traumatic stress disorder

~ Chinese doctors have termed it ‘PORN TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER’

———–

Wow. We feel very badly for this young man, and for all of the many children and others globally who also suffer from ‘porn traumatic stress disorder.’

We can say from personal experience that this condition is very real, and can affect adults as well, especially women, as a result of being exposed to the extreme violence, cruelty and misogyny in pornography.

We urge parents to do everything they can to keep pornography away from their children, and we urge all women and everyone else to also avoid pornography as much as possible, and to speak out against it instead.

A new study shows that most teens know how harmful pornography is:

    Internet pornography is having a damaging impact on young people’s views about sex and puts pressure on girls to look and act a certain way, according to a poll of 500 British teenagers.

    Eight out of 10 18-year-olds surveyed by the thinktank IPPR felt it was too easy to accidentally view explicit images while surfing the internet, while 72% said pornography led to unrealistic views about sex.

    In findings that will add to concerns over the sharing of explicit photographs, 46% of 18-year-olds polled said sending sexual or naked photographs and videos was “part of everyday life for teenagers nowadays”.

    “This new polling data shows that pornographic images are pervasive in teenagers’ lives and that young women in particular are acutely conscious of how damaging they can be,” said Dalia Ben-Galim, associate director of IPPR.

    Almost eight out of 10 young women said pornography had led to pressure on girls to look and act a certain way, while 66% said “it would be easier growing up if pornography was less easy to access for young people”.

We’re working hard to do *our* part to help, and hope that everyone else will do THEIRS, especially all parents, educational institutions and the government. It’s up to ALL ADULTS to help young people, and if we all work together as a TEAM, we CAN change things for the better. This will not only help teens, but EVERYONE! Thanks! 🙂

GOOD NEWS! 🙂 The UK is now making the world safer from porn by restricting it from many public WiFi networks!

~~~~ Let’s hope that the United States and all other countries soon follow suit! 🙂

[The Mirror] — The world’s first scheme to stop hardcore porn being accessed in public wi-fi areas is launched in the UK today.

Parents who see a “Friendly Wi-Fi” sign in cafes, restaurants, hotels and museums will know their children cannot access explicit content.

Tesco, Starbucks and Samsung have already signed up to the scheme, which comes after a Mirror investigation revealed a quarter of public networks allowed people to view explicit images and videos .

Claire Lilley, from the NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children), said: “Children often go online when they are out and about and parents need to know that using a public Wifi network won’t expose them to pornography.

“So it’s very reassuring for parents to know that when they see the ‘Friendly Wifi’ logo they can allow their children to go online in safety.”

——————–

ANTIPORNOGRAPHY.ORG NOTE: It will also be very reassuring for *women*, who don’t want to be surrounded by men and boys watching degrading and abusive porn in public, to know that porn can’t be accessed on the Internet at these locations!

~ PERSONAL HARM STORY BY SARAH T. – 19 years old ~

WARNING: DISTURBING CONTENT

I grew up in a fairly big family in which I had three brothers and two sisters. I was the youngest of all of them. My family was fairly religious, and I always viewed my life as “perfect.” It wasn’t until I was in fourth grade (nine years old) that my life changed forever.

The youngest of my brothers, Ryan, who was sixteen at the time, invited me to a movie sleepover in the basement of our house. This was exciting for me because it wasn’t often that Ryan was this nice to me, or that I was able to stay up late in my own home. I gladly accepted, and we watched a couple of movies.

I was on one couch and Ryan was on the other. The couches were fairly close to each other — within arms’ reach. I remember Ryan kept leaning over and looking at me, and I never understood why — until the night was over. He had planned in his mind that this was the night he was going to sexually abuse me.

After the movie was over I started falling asleep. I looked over, and it appeared Ryan was asleep as well, but his hand was in an odd place and was resting on the couch I was laying on. After he thought I was asleep is when he started to perform the rest of what he had planned.

I was too scared to open my eyes. I truly wanted to believe that Ryan was sleeping, and that he believed I was someone else. I was afraid, and didn’t know what to do or believe.

The next day I didn’t quite understand everything that had happened to me. I had run to my room in the middle of the night and managed to fall asleep there. Right when I woke up I took out my journal and wrote down everything that had happened to me in detail. I read it over and cried. I couldn’t help but believe that it was my fault for everything that had happened.

Later in the day I had an urge to share this experience with someone. I gave the journal to my older sister Ashley, and I ran into the bathroom crying while she read it. I was so ashamed.

Ashley knocked on the door of the bathroom. I opened it and I saw that she too was crying. She then told me that she had been also once been sexually abused by Ryan. Ashley then blamed herself for not telling our parents, because she believed that if she had told them right away after she was sexually abused, then I wouldn’t have had to have go through it as well.

Yay! Prostitution is now illegal in Canada! Plus there’s a new focus on DEMAND — through prosecuting pimps and johns — and on helping women exit the sex trade and transition to better lives. See basic details below, and the full press release covering all points at the link.

“The Protection of Communities and Exploited Persons Act is a “made-in-Canada” model, which directly targets the demand for this dangerous activity. The Act would introduce tough action to crack down on pimps and johns. For the first time, the purchase of sexual services would be criminalized, with tough penalties for those who exploit others through prostitution. The proposed legislation would also protect and safeguard our communities-in particular women, children, and those who are at risk of being drawn into prostitution-from the dangers associated with prostitution, including violence, drug-related crime, and organized crime.

“This model involves a significant overhaul of the Criminal Code’s treatment of prostitution and related activities. It would:

— Criminalize those who fuel the demand for prostitution, i.e. purchasers of sexual services;

— Continue to criminalize those who financially benefit from the exploitation of others through prostitution, such as pimps, and those who procure others for the purpose of prostitution;

— Prohibit advertising for the sale of others’ sexual services in print or online;

— Immunize those who sell their own sexual services from criminal liability for any part they play in the purchasing, material benefit, procuring or advertising offences;
Protect our communities by criminalizing communicating for the purpose of selling sexual services in public places where a child could reasonably be expected to be present;

and

— Increase existing penalties relating to child prostitution.
“These measures will be supported by $20 million in new funding, including to support grassroots organizations dealing with the most vulnerable. Assistance will be provided to those who want to leave this dangerous and harmful activity; therefore, there will be an emphasis on funding programs that can help individuals exit prostitution.”

http://www.marketwired.com/press-release/statement-minister-justice-regarding-legislation-response-supreme-court-canada-ruling-1917491.htm

———-

NOTE: We acknowledge that this is not the same or as ideal as the full Nordic Model that abolitionists were hoping and working for, but it is still a HUGE improvement from previous laws, and an even greater leap from what pro-sex industry people were going for. So we consider this to be a significant success and an enormous step in the right direction. Go Canada! 🙂
