Should we censor pornography from the Internet?

Pornography has been a hot topic in recent times. It used to be something that can be obtained only by going to the store or accessing some DVDs. With the invention of the internet pornography is now accessible with a click of a button. There have also been discussions of the damaging effects that pornography has yet it is still freely accessible. Should we take more measures to censor pornography off the internet?

Pornography is a fake simulation of sex and it is very addicting. Now that the material is on the internet kids can even access the material without any supervision. Before you had to make some effort to obtain these materials. This kind of activity is causing more people to be delusional and to have mental problems. I believe that we should completely censor porn off the internet.

The only thing the Left will censor in this nation is public symbols of our Christian heritage, such as the nativity scene during Christmas, etc.

Can you imagine how lost Liberals are to be so concerned about some child seeing a nativity scene aong the road, but have no problem with kids seeing pornagraphy on the internet.

It only shows how lost and how screwed up man's priorities without faith in God.

yes we should. porn is disgusting, its a universally accepted fact, plus its not real. watching porn creates a false sense of what the act of sex is, it raises unrealistic expectations which when remained unfulfilled leads to mental disorders. porn addiction is a real problem. so why is there still a question that censoring is necessary? the facts are out there, no one acts because it is a source of economy. its all about money, that's it.

I find it absolutely insane that you want RIGHTS to be taken away from us.

I think many people (not all) agree that third wave feminism is "evil", but nobody is banning it because they have the right to do and say whatever they want as long as they're not breaking any laws.

If you want to live in a place with restricted freedom, then get out of America.

Perversion is not a right. The fact that laws are permissive does not justify or excuse perversion.

YES, POP-UP ADS are dangerous to children's psyche, it would also diminish divorce based on pornogoraph, which would help maintain family structures, which would make America safer. furthermore, pornogoraphy is degrading to women.

If parents are concerned about their children accessing pornography or other adult content on the web all they need to do is download parental control software. You can even get it for free (Source 1)

Impossible to protect from everything and when kids go to other kid's homes who do not have parental controls, they see it.

It is impossibe to protect our kids from it on the web because they will see it in many places away from home.

Well the first time I saw pornography my friends and I found a magazine in a bush, so there's no way to entirely prevent it. If you're worried about your children, simply inform the parents of their friends about these services.

"Should we censor pornography from the Internet?"

And not be able to see your sister perform again? NEVER!

Side: No we should not censor

There are ways to prevent children from pornography, one of the best ways is to make a kid mentally able and mature enough to understand the consequences of pornography.
