The fact that the child porn might be pre-existing in no way lessesns the culpability of those who view it or possess it.
That it an opinion, not a fact, but let's read on to see how you support it.
The only reason it exists at all is because terrible people have committed disgusting acts upon a helpless child.
I could argue against your use of the words terrible
, and helpless
in describing the majority of child porn, but for the sake of argument let's assume you are describing the worst kind and that you've used those words appropriately. This is still an argument against production, not possession.
And they have done so knowing that there are people in the world who are willing to purchase it...
This is one of the most common arguments about legalizing child porn and it is a complete falsehood. Most child porn is traded in a gift economy
. It is not sold. I've also specifically stated that the purchase of child porn should remain illegal specifically to address this concern.
...knowing full well that a child was irrepairably damaged in the process.
False. Many pedophiles do not believe that the relationship is harmful to the child. Whether that's true or not is irrelevant. Your claim that they know full well
Additionally, you have nothing to support your claim that all children used in child porn are irrepairably damaged in the process, or even a majority. Irrepairably was your word, not mine. Don't let your use of hyperbole paint you into a corner.
It doesn't matter how many internet domains it has passed through before it reached you, it doesn't matter how many drops of semen have spilled onto the face of the 6 or 7 year old girl with scared eyes looking up at you from the magazine which now lies open a few feet in front of your own penis. You are part of a horrible, despicable process.
No, actually, anonymous downloaders are not
part of the process. They provide no income, no support, no feedback of any kind. As colorful as that was, you do not present any argument to demonstrate how merely possessing and viewing it can harm the child. By your logic simply watching the videos of the World Trade Center attack makes us terrorists.
I have no idea how credible these studies are which suggest that child rape is reduced by possession of child pornography. I strongly suspect that they're scientifically as weak as piss.
The fact that you refuse to read them tells me you're not actually interested in protecting children, but protecting the idea of protecting children. If more children get raped, so be it, your conscience is clear, right? What academic credentials do you possess that qualify you to declare these studies invalid without even reading them?
But I don't think it really matters, because you don't seem to realise that allowing men to indulge their twisted fantasies of sticking their dicks inside babies, toddlers and pre-teens is ultimately going to harm society as a whole in a horrifying way.
Not only do you provide no explaination or evidence for this claim, you don't even address the fact that in Japan, Denmark, and the Czech Republic, allowing men to indulge their twisted fantasies of sticking their dicks inside babies, toddlers and pre-teens resulted in a significant drop in child sex abuse cases.
You also seem to be forgetting that production of this horrible stuff is illegal, yet as you yourself boast, quite plentiful. How much more when it isn't even illegal to own it.
Banning it actually leads to more people producing it as they can't get it anywhere else they decide to shoot it themselves. Consider that if it were legal it would be easier to access. That easy access would lead more potential abusers to use it as an outlet for their sexual energy instead of having sex with real children and recording it. After all, the reason they record it is to have it
in order to use later, as an outlet for their sexual energy.
You're suggesting that legalization would lead to increased production, but... no source, no evidence or argument? Just your opinion. Whereas I have years of research and real world results to back up my claims. Oh that's right you didn't bother reading any of it.
You're a sad, sad person,
You obviously don't know me at all. I'm an incredibly happy guy.
quite obviously dis-honest
This from the guy who speaks only in opinions, laced with hyperbole, gives no evidence for any of his claims, and refuses to read evidence that disagrees with his opinion.
and my only real hope is that you someday, somehow wake up and realise it and get some help.
My idea would mean a significant reduction in child sex abuse. It's you who should wake up.
My language in this post has been disgusting. It will probably disgust many people. I hope it does. It's a disgusting subject, and I wish the moderators would close it down.
Yes, silence those that disagree with you.
