It has been a few days now, that I am having this irresistable urge to write about porn. In Dutch preferrably, but maybe I should practise a bit in English first and then try to get it right before I lash out at my government with irrefutable arguments that will not be ignored and succeed in changing the law (like that will happen). (Something like this would be nice, does this only apply in UTAH?)
My beef is with the accessibility of hard-core porn through the interweb by minors. Also with the ease minors can pay for internet porn via telephone.
I have heard several arguments proving that the fault is really mine:
1. I neglected to block 0906 and 0909 paid "information" phone services. People, I never asked for these paid information services in the first place, never used them. No paid information service was ever called from my phone line before Saturday a week ago. Am I being accused of negligence for not blocking a service that I was hardly even aware I had access to?
2. I neglected to block access to adult websites on my computers. But who would have thought, if there is a wireless access point in the house, kids can watch porn on their PSP through WiFi ? I bet they never told you about that.
It must be clear that in this day and age, parents are not capable of shielding their kids from seeing porn. The only ones who can do that are the porn business. By law however, they do not appear to be held to do so. I would like to see that changed.
