On re-legalization possesion of child-porn

9. Nov 2012

http://falkvinge.net/2012/09/07/three-reasons-child-porn-must-be-re-legalized-in-the-coming-decade/

My initial reaction as I read „Pirate Party founder wants to legalize possession of child porn.“ was something like „How could someone possibly want this?”, but turned to “Sounds reasonable”.

I always felt that the edge cases should be covered by laws. There are some reasons to question the ban on child porn. For instance the loose term child porn, which covers drawings, text, animated content and actual sexual abuse of children.

I would like to see people call sexual abuse of children on tape “documentation of sexual child abuse”, since porn is misleading. Porn is more appealing to most people, the sexual abuse is luckily not.

Without arguing for legalization, I feel that the ban is indeed harmful. You won’t catch the real criminals that way and banning it doesn’t help catching them.

I was always against censorship, because if we start to block websites due to child porn other content might follow. However I was and I still am fine with deleting actual child porn.

I mostly agree with Rick Falkvinge, because he is straight-forward and honest. Other people agreed as well, even people with children. Females agreed, too.

You still should despise child porn / sexual abuse of children. You should work against such things, but banning it does not make it go away.

I already wrote too much and the reason I’m writing these lines so late after the article is because I feared about my reputation, but that shouldn’t make me care.
