It’s about a researcher from the University of Hawaii who says we should give child porn to pedophiles so they will masturbate to that and not rape children. Go over and take a read.

    Just to play devil’s advocate, I wonder if they meant virtual (computer-generated, or legal adults who look like kids) or acutal. Because the Supreme Court effectively legalized the former in 2002, provided that no actual chlidren under 18 were used to make it. I would hope the researcher did not mean actual, since the making of it is a heinous crime in itself, and purchasing it essentially hires the criminals to commit such crimes.

    He wants it all. His study was flawed as even Salon points out but it’s claims that access to porn decreases child abuse and suggests letting people have illegal porn as a way to reduce crime.

    It’s actually not a new theory, I’ve heard a lot of people claim it.

    Then he must be a real sick monster, or clinically brain-dead to believe that.

    Or a lazy researcher looking to make a splash with a controversial statement based on a shoddy study. Happens all the time.
