Soon British people will have to "opt in" and ask their internet service providers to let them see porn on the internet.
This is going to be very awkward for a lot of households...

They also want girls to stop dressing like sluts apparently.

I'm not sure how to feel about all this, but it seems like parents can't control their kids and are blaming everyone else for their problems.

and this is why the colonists revolted against Britain and made America, because they did stuff like this to piss people off for shits and giggles. i can see there point but this isnt the way to go about trying to solve it. there gonna find out someday so why not give them the free will to search what they want to search.

... I'm not sure whether to laugh about the absurdity of trying to ban porn, or cry for you poor souls if it actually happens.
Porn is an industry in and of itself. People pay money for it! Hell, it probably accounts for 1 or 2% of the national income over here!
That being said, no one likes to admit that they watch it to the public at large.
And dressing like a slut should be reserved for actual sluts.
Anyways, I hope they don't ban porn for you guys.

"There will also be a website, Parentport, which parents can use to complain about television programmes, advertisements, products or services which they believe are inappropriate for children."

That sentence combined with the fact that a Christain charity was mentioned in an earlier paragraph get's me thinking that over-protective Christian mothers are going to be complaining about new and innovative cartoons. This is why we don't see stuff like Ren and Stimpy anymore and soon it could be much harder to get them broadcast.

I don't really see porn as a good thing but I wonder what happened to people being able to make their own decisions on what they watch. I understand and agree with trying to stop the sexualisation of children though, at least on a morals front which I assume it's driven by.

Ha, I'm sure kids will find a way around it. I mean there's plenty of dirty stuff on this site, are they gonna block sites like this one as well?

As for sluttly clothes, then don't buy them for your kids :/ . Tell them to get a job to buy their own slutty clothes, at least then they'll learn job skills.

This is quite silly, shouldn't this already be covered by normal parental restrictions available on computers? If anything it should be an opt-in to remove the ability to access pornographic sites. This could actually limit the work of many artists, photographers and models I know. (not porn, but I know people that do nude, erotica and more risqué burlesque performances.)

Land of the free



In all seriousness, lolwut. That's kinda hard to ban seeing as the internet can't automatically split up porn and normal site on the dot. On top of that, a couple of days ago, I used Yahoo search "Jessie :U", looking for that face and I had safesearch on, right? A couple of porn pictures. :c
