Kiddy porn and UN idiots

Some 750,000 sexual predators are constantly prowling the internet in a bid to gain contact with children, a United Nations report is warning. Well, let’s take a look at that for a while…

"The number of sites devoted to child pornography worldwide is growing. The number of predators connected to the internet at any one time is estimated to be 750,000," said Najat Maala, Special Rapporteur on the child prostitution and child pornography issue. Unicef also estimates there are more than four million websites featuring minors, including those of children aged under two years.

Really? Even if so, it gets a harder and harder to find any. I remember a time when you hardly could go online looking for regular porn without stumbling upon some child porn, and if you looked for some porn at Kazaa, DC++ or similar downloading places, you were bound to find some kiddy stuff as well. Nowadays it’s almost impossible. There isn’t kiddy porn on any of the main downloading sites, not what I could find. And I cannot remember the last time I roamed the net looking for porn and happened to end up at some preteen site, it was a long time ago. And I’m a porn lover going online looking for porn all the time.

In the wake of this report, I set out to find some on purpose; it was very hard to see anything at all. The closest I could find was some semi-nude models of pretty young age, but that you can find in any clothing catalogue.

So the search engines have cleaned out most of it, regular porn sites have no links or pop-ups anymore, very little can be found at downloading sites, and if you go look for it, it’s almost impossible to find. Internets own built-in regulatory system has worked and deleted the easy access that was before.

Najat Maala noted that the age of sexual consent should not be used as an excuse for child pornographic peddlers - as it is used in places where this age limit is lower than the definition of who constitutes a minor. This is because a "child under 18 cannot be considered to be able to consent to sexual exploitation, including child pornography," she added.

I have myself always thought that that age limit is highly stupid. The legal age of sex consent varies a lot from country to country. Everything from 12y to 20y. It’s 15 in Sweden, 16 in the UK, but 18 in most American states. So what constitutes as statutory rape in the US is perfectly legal in most of Europe. And we all know that most teens start to have sex long before they turn 18. A 15y old girl choosing to pose nude in front of her webcam isn’t the same as an 11y old getting raped, but according to UN it is. Makes you wonder how this affect the statistic doesn’t it?

And look at the choice of words Najat uses. “consent to sexual exploitation” - so everyone taking picture, doing porn or such is being sexually exploited no matter what. How nice.

And doesn’t it strike you as odd that these kinds of reports is pouring out all the time, papers keep quoting them with doomsday headlines and parenting groups shout all the time, at the same time as regulations, laws and the monitoring of the internet is reaching fascist heights? You don’t need to be a conspiracy nut to see the writings on this wall.

"Images of sexually exploited children are not only growing in number but are also increasingly shocking," added Maala, who estimates that between 10,000 and 100,000 minors are victims of the child pornography network.

Between 10 000 and 100 000? Leaves a lot of roam for errors, don’t you think? And again, notice the choice of words. “the child pornography network” – it seems to imply that there is one big network out there, are they really trying to convince us of such stupidity? And what does she mean by “increasingly shocking”? Was older times pedophiles more prudent and only fiddled a little bit? Did pedophiles 50 years ago handle their victims much better and less shocking? Are we seeing the dawn of the age of super-pedophiles?

Pedophilia in itself may be bad, acting upon against youngsters makes it a crime, but when stuff comes out of the UN with very strange conclusions and sentences it is very hard to take it serious. Maybe kiddy-porn is on the rise, but I doubt it. Maybe there are more underage sex-slaves, but I doubt that too. Things was not better before in history, we are just better at detecting it nowadays, and these kinds of reports will only have two effects. 1) Make pedophiles even harder to find 2) give our enemies another reason to shut down internet.

  2. På 80-talet vet jag att en hel del av USA:s sydliga stater hade 14 som byxmyndighetsgräns.

    Om UN-rapporten avser tjejer under 18 som visar sig nakna i webcam alt skickar runt sina nakenfoton, så, ja då tror jag att ökningen stämmer. Camwhoring fanns inte på min tid och kanske är det lika bra. Stackars tjejer, vad de gör för uppmärksamheten... i några sekunder...
    I blame 4chan.

  3. PS men det tjänar de inga pengar på, så då stämmer inte rapporten.

  4. Vad tjänar de inte pengar på? Att flasha framför Webcam är big business. Du kan köpa bilar och hus för vissa av de intäkterna. Flickor säljer sina trosor för tusenlappar för att ta ett annat exempel.

  5. Jag förstår inte hur du har sprungit på barnporr ens av misstag. Jag har på 14 år som flitig och aktiv nätporranvändare aldrig sett nåt värre än taniga 19-åriga brudar med flätor och skoluniform.

  6. Det var vanligt att så göra x-antal år sedan. Hamnade man på "fel" porrsida så dök det upp 511 hemsidor i rad 'poff poff' och flera av dessa innehöll barnporr. Idag är det, som jag skriver, nästintill omöjligt att hitta ens om man försöker.
