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.

It’s great to see Google using their power and resources to do something so productive to combat child pornography!

    [Business Insider] — Google is going to start using a database of thousands of pornographic images and videos of children to block people from searching them.

    The BBC reports that “digital fingerprints” of known child sex abuse photographs, identified and compiled by a UK charity called the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF), will be used to generate flags that prevent browsers from accessing them. […]

    “This is important because every single image or video is of a real child being sexually abused and every time someone views that image or video that child is re-victimised.”

———————

Exactly! Go Google! We hope many others follow this lead and do their *own* part to end all forms of sexual abuse, but in particular online child sexual abuse. (Aka “child pornography.”)

Here’s a great article which responds well to the all-too-common criticism of anti-porn people being “anti-sex” — by describing the profoundly disturbing but all too real connections of pornography to child sex abuse and sex trafficking.

    ‘In Cambodia, Cacho met a woman who runs a brothel who explained how she ‘reprograms’ girls by ‘normalising sexual exploitation through systematic exposure to pornography. They have to be convinced that they were the ones who chose to do this, and they must be constantly reminded that their lives are worth nothing.’

    Some UN member states estimate between 60-90% of women in the sex trade are trafficked. Thai estimates show 40% of the sex trade is child sex abuse and around 90% of trafficked girls are underage. Indigenous women are also highly overrepresented in areas of the trade. Global inequality has long encouraged sexual exploitation, but only recently has it been broadcast in pornography. How many of these women feature on porn movies watched across the world? Research suggests users do not care.

    Criticism of such issues may be framed as “anti sex”, or against those working in the trade. On the contrary, the western choice rhetoric may legitimise exploitation of the economically vulnerable. Arguments for choice, agency or “feminist porn” create new opportunities to expand sales, rather than ethics. Users draw upon piecemeal evidence to argue the sex industry can actually reduce sexist attitudes and violence. This goes directly against a 2010 meta-analysis, most recent experimental evidence and Nordic state legislation review showing the opposite.

Here’s a very informative article about who’s really watching child pornography. It’s notable that less than 1% are women.

[Huffington Post] – You may be tempted to think that no one you know could ever be viewing child pornography, but unfortunately, that is probably not the case. Alarmingly, it is among the fastest growing businesses online. Internet child pornography offenses occur when someone downloads, collects and circulates child pornography. It’s also child abuse. My last blog on this subject painted the tragic broad picture of this crime against children. All child pornography offenses, including possession, are extremely serious because they result in perpetual harm to the child and validate and normalize the sexual exploitation of children.

There is quite a bit of research done on sex offenders who have physical contact with their victims, but, research on Internet child pornography offenders and what type of danger they pose to children is still relatively new. One way to learn more about these perpetrators is through their arrest records.

According to the National Crimes Against Children Research Center, an excellent resource for this topic, arrests for crimes involving child pornography grew significantly between 2000 and 2006 and again in 2009. In 2009, there were 4,901 arrests compared to 3,672 in 2006 and 1,713 in 2000. Interestingly, those who were arrested in 2009 were more diverse ethnically and racially, but the great majority of those arrested were non-Hispanic white men. They weren’t concentrated in any specific geographic location, and their levels of income and education varied widely. Two-thirds were single, about one-quarter lived with children under the age of 18 and about one-quarter had problems with drugs and alcohol. In 2009, similar to 2006, about 20 percent of the offenders were between the ages of 18 to 25; while the majority of men who viewed child pornography were 26 or older. In 2009, more offenders had child pornography videos in their possession.
