From Kid's Stuff To Porn

Recommended Posts

I was watching television, the program escapes me... at any rate there was a man advocating the evils of the internet to some rather crazy extremes. Corrupting our kids and so forth. He went so far as to say that no child anywhere should ever have any access to the internet without thorough supervision at all times because of the concerns of being shown something immoral.

 

His assertions stick with me despite his total idiocy even though I don't remember what I was watching or who he was. He claimed that even from the most child friendly site, say one for their favorite program, the child by means of random link clicking can end up on an adult site and hence very adult material without any typing or intentional motivation required. That at least was the just of his argument.

 

Lets stay away from the debate over the man's sanity for a moment. It is obviously irrational to use this as a basis for anything, but it is very hilarious to think about and of course try!

 

I have so far not been able to get to porn by starting off on such sites as fisher price and using only the current site's provided links. But I'm sure someone somewhere can manage to link something as harmless (in theory anyway) as Barney with hard core porn! So if your bored try to turn some tree house TV into pizza with extra sausage.

 

Cheers,

I've got no problem with kids having access to porn - though most porn is sexist, bad ideas should be contradicted, not censored. Besides, if someone wants to look at porn they're going to find a way whether they're "allowed" to or not.

 

Also, access to the internet can be very empowering and if I had kids I would definitely want to ensure they had access - and privacy.

Well there are certainly benign ways to end up with questionable material. While running a summer kids camp, doing a google image search (with safe search on) for "Sponge Bob" there was a picture of a topless girl who had sponge bob painted on her chest, on the first page.

 

Though I doubt the ability of a children's site to accidentally link you to porn...

Don't for the love of all that is sacred in your computer just click on random links...

 

Eventually you will end up with spyware, malware, or virus'...maybe not immediately but eventually you'll find a random Ad that will install something without your notice.

You're damned right Az....that's just stupidity in the making. There's a lot of dumbshit on the web, so just use some sense...I remember a couple of years ago, someone hacked yahoo, and every time you clicked a link it took you to a porn site...shit happens.

I remember that...but in general...that sort of thing can still be unsafe.

obviously use safe internet practice to avoid spy ware and the like.

 

I simply found the man's claims humorous and for the most part widely unfounded. Although if your children are clicking on everything they can randomly, porn would be the least of your concerns.
