That would be an understatement, MDF.

mmmK, everryone chill. I read the article more thoroughly, and I have to conclude the rest of the thread didn’t.
In the article the guy was cleared of charges of having seen child pornography. The argument was that if CP was in his webcache, then it was his. He successfully argued that anyone could have used his computer, and that there was no way to prove that it was him and he deliberately sought it out.
So essentially, this is the government finally catching up with technology. If this was on paper, it would be like saying that having CP in your retinas was enough to convict you, regardless of whether or not you went and purposefully bought it.
In a semi-related note, he also had a file of CP images on his computer, and still went to jail. They just cleared him of the charges for those specific images.

I did read the article. It’s pretty much saying that if someone views CP without downloading it they have a valid argument with “Someone else got on my computer and did it!1!”. So yeah, it doesn’t seem like much will be done about this.

Perfect time for me to have a rant. This one’s been on my chest for a while.

I don’t approve of real CP, because that actually involves a child.
But if it’s drawings… I don’t think it’s as bad, because the person hasn’t gotten out, got a child and used it. I personally go by the philosophy that a thought doesn’t necessarily lead to an action. You can utter the phrase “I’m going to kill you,” and you may have actual thoughts about killing the person – but nobody, except psychopaths, actually cross the line and kill someone.

Now, I’m bringing this up because I’m a fat admirer. And I feel that people will start to question the ethics of my little kink, just as they do with CP. However, it’s something I want to keep in my HEAD, because I know it’ll lead to harm and complications. I only look at drawings, not a real-life, morbidly obese woman. I’m not going to actually fatten a person up like I see in my imagination. People don’t seem to get that.

… I kind of feel like I’m agreeing with Hitler right now. I probably have a lot of arguable, or terribly wrong points in there. Is it illegal to claim this kind of stuff?

I am so sorry. I just feel kind of dumb right now.

The pessimist is laughing at you all for being surprised.
But seriously, what the fucking fuck fuck, New York.

As far as I’m concerned, there has been no evidence that demonstrates viewing child porn leads to raping children. That’s the same argument as playing violent video games makes you commit violent acts. Whether is pedophilia, bestiality, necrophilia, etc, I have no issues if its fantasized and not acted upon on children/animals/corpses.The idea of a child porn disgusts people, but disgust is not a reason to make something illegal that does not cause harm.
Now the matter of producing child porn is a completely different story. Videos of actual children should be illegal, but for instance Turner’s syndrome women, and animated cp should be allowed.

What does Turner’s syndrome have to do with this?

Turner’s syndrome can give women a younger appearance, since it can stunt growth at child-like proportions, and can inhibit the effects of puberty. Typically Turner’s syndrome sufferers use growth hormone therapy to reach a more normal height, and use hormone therapy to develop breasts and other characteristics, and this can mediate most of these effects.
