Porn censorship & age checks breach human rights, says UN...

PostFri Jan 13, 2017 1:45 am

No comment. Just putting it out there. Sighing.

Online checks controlling whether children are accessing pornographic sites have been defined as a breach of human rights by a United Nations (UN) official.

The British government announced last year that any porn site failing to implement age verification checks before people can view explicit content will be immediately blocked.

But David Kaye, the UN’s special rapporteur on the promotion and protection on the rights to freedom of opinion and expression, has now urged politicians to reconsider, as the proposal could be in breach of “international law.”

A series of bans on pornographic content available to the public have been implemented by the Tory government since taking office.

Depictions of sexual acts such as spanking, face-sitting and female ejaculation are now banned in British porn, and internet providers could be hit with fines if they fail to block websites identified by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) as contravening the law.

Age verification checks will be made compulsory by amendments to the new Digital Economy Bill, which is currently being examined by the House of Lords.

But according to Kaye the measure could expose adult porn viewers to prying by the government, as well as lend itself to abuse by hackers and fraudsters.

“I am concerned that the age-verification provisions give the government access to information of viewing habits and citizen data,” Kaye said in a letter to ministers.

“Data provided to one part of government can be shared with other parts of government and private sector companies without a person’s knowledge and consent.”

The bill’s “lack of privacy obligations” was also a reason for concern, as well as the “significant tightening [of] control over the internet in the UK.”

“Age-verification requirement may easily be subject to abuse such as hacking, blackmail and other potential credit card fraud,” Kaye added.

But former Tory minister Claire Perry told the Sun the UN official was using “emotive language,” which “distracts from an important principle.”

“What is needed is a robust system in place to ensure that under 18s are not permitted to see material online that they would not have access to in the offline world,” she added.

“The analogy they use is like saying stopping children from going to see an 18 film infringes on the rights of adults to go to the cinema — I just don’t think it holds much water.”

Children’s rights groups seemed to mostly agree with Perry, with the head of the Children’s Charities Coalition on Internet Safety, John Carr, saying: “It’s clear [Kaye] hasn’t read what is actually being done because everything he says is wrong.

“Proportionality is in the eye of the beholder but it’s clear there is a benefit to children in introducing these measures. States are under an obligation to protect children from this kind of harmful material – that’s what the government is doing.”

Oh yeah? So kids will then be able to sue their parents for violation of their human rights when access to internet porn is denied. This has actually reminded me of Gov. Jerry Brown's recent actions, SB 1322. Guess he and his ilk are covering all ground. I decided to check Kaye's background and see where his allegiances lie and iam asking myself, since he is pushing for this, does he grant his own kids those 'priviledges', if he has any? Or he is out to ruin other people's kids while he protects his own, you know, like how they push all manner of vaccines on the populace while they and their families do not take the jabs? Kaye is a law professor at UC Irvine, so he and Brown see eye to eye. Started his career at the State Dept and he is a CFR member. So he doesn't have our best interests at heart.

I'm pretty sure we all saw porn before the age of 18. It's not really a big deal in moderation. But apparently millennials have really skewed ideas on what rape is (um if you gave consent and then decide the next morning that you regret your decision....that doesn't make it rape. But apparently to them, it does.) So I can understand why young guys get addicted to porn. Of course, porn of today is really disgusting the majority of the time. Glory hole shots and gagging noises while she's going down south....ugh.

Anyways, maybe I'm a horrible jezebel or something, but I honestly don't think it's a big deal if teenagers look at skin rags....online stuff is basically asking for your computer to get an std.

Yeah, thats true. Atleast at this point in time, under 18s have seen porn in one form or another. In moderation or otherwise, it doesn't change the fact that there are ramifications for the person and society as a whole.

That's true. The magazines my stepdad forgot in the bathroom when I was 12 have become extremely degrading over the years. Porn in general has become violent and incredibly degrading towards the female. When impressionable and inexperienced minds see this repeatedly they start to think that all women want to be treated like that. (When, really, any woman seeing this stuff will point out that the poor girl is choking and *really* not enjoying her throat being impaled while her heads held in a forceful death grip. I wouldn't be surprised if any women died this way, honestly.) I guess such films have been around for decades, and I know snuff films have....but the current state of pornography seems to be preparing these minds to accept snuff as mainstream.

I don't look at xxx stuff as often as it may sound...but seriously why is it so hard to find good porn these days? Especially hentai. Omf it's the worst! But I will say, those tentacle rapings seem to be more considerate towards the animated girls than the supposedly consensual live action stuff.

Yeah. You're right. I forgot just wtf people are exposed to in modern porn. It's become extremely messed up.

The first link started spamming me with pop-ups.

But cuckolding and stuff like that, yeah there does seem to be a rising trend from what I've gathered (and yes, xxx=porn ;))...It's not just men. I've met some girls who actually like to watch their guy with another woman; like they're really into it. (I don't understand it myself, but I'm also possessive when it comes to my guy.) I'd heard of swingers and those "elite" masked sex clubs, things like that, but (aside from bf's wanting to watch/join their gf with another girl) cuckold-like stuff is something I'd only learned about in the past year or so. It's probably been around for a long time, though.

I guess the rise in popularity is due to us constantly inundated with imagery of things, and even though we may not like what we see the seed is still planted and we don't even know it. This doesn't apply to just sexual things. Then all of a sudden we find ourselves later on curious, perhaps even fantasizing about it. Some of us tried smoking out of this same kind of curiousity, some of us still smoke because of this stupid indulgence, others were smart. I guess group sex or threesomes work the same way? Idk. I imagine there is usually alcohol or drugs involved, I can't imagine how else this would play out stone-cold sober.

Yes, i know xxx=porn but you mentioned hentai. Is that like a genre of sorts? Thats why i said iam clueless. But you see more knowledgeable about this stuff than iam. I certainly wouldn't venture to watch xxx rated stuff, i wouldn't want to violate my mind. I too see things the way you do.

In the paedophilia-illuminati thread, i said

he justifiably laments and iam guessing the primary cause of all this are the sex scenes we watch on the telly and in movies all the time, given that CNN recently broadcast transexual porn 'by mistake'. If that is the case, how are we being transformed by all the murder scenes in said media? Will i, in the not-so-distant future, get a 'rush' from spectating real-life murder, just like the depraved elites do with their snuff films? Which reminded me of; By beholding we become changed......It is both an intellectual and a spiritual principle. The mind gradually adapts itself to what it is accustomed to love and reverence. Just wondering...............


cuckolding at orgies is to be expected but now, its couples in their private homes sitting down and contemplating this 'route' for their relationship. Iam suprised alot of women are into it too given the possessiveness. Its all crazy and creepy.

And it continues:

Minors in France will no longer be automatically barred from watching films containing real, non-simulated sex scenes, according to a report, as the Ministry of Culture is set to liberalize domestic laws on film classifications.

France's Minister of Culture Audrey Azoulay will issue a decree softening the criteria for banning films to those aged under 18 as soon as next month, BFM TV reports.

Until now, a decree dating from 2003 stipulates that films "with non-simulated or very violent sex scenes" must be banned for children under 18 years of age. It means that any film covered by the description must be automatically prohibited to minors.

“To ban children under 18 from watching films is nonsense,” Joel Chapron, UniFrance head of research and distributor relations, and Cannes Film Festival consultant, told RT.

Oh hentai is anime porn. There's often a lot of weird alien tentacle rape scenes. When I first saw it as a teenager, I thought "Asians are into some really weird stuff." Later I learned that Japanese are not allowed to show penises so that's why there's all the tentacles. But there's a lot of other strange things in their pervy cartoons, such as incest or watching naked girls poo. I really don't understand it at all, except the tentacles. (Some girls like it because it's almost a "safe" gang-rape fantasy without feeling too slutty. Every part of the portrayed victim is usually being stimulated at the same time. It took me years to see it that way, though.)
