This five-page article: Are child porn laws unfair? Viewers’ sentences can be worse than molesters’
I want to hear your views on this matter! Tell me in the comments section. Discuss this among yourselves for my entertainment.
SEMI GROSS CONFESSION AND A RATHER DISTURBING IDEA AHEAD: DON’T READ IF YOU DON’T GO FOR THAT SORT OF THING. BUT THEN WHY ARE YOUR READING THIS BLOG?
Here’s another, related topic for discussion:
When I was thirteen or fourteen or so, my dad had just got a scanner, and one afternoon I was alone at home and I got a little silly and actually scanned my private parts just to see what it would look like. (The answer: absolutely nothing like a woman’s private parts.) I do not possess the jpg file anymore, but suppose I did? You could make a good case that such an image constituted child pornography. If I did still have the image, would it make sense for the state to prosecute me for possessing child pornography of myself?
I think this is an issue that will come up in court sooner or later. I can’t have been the first minor to take naughty pictures of herself. Suppose a man was arrested for possession of nude, sexually suggestive photographs of a boy (probably in his teens, but definitely underage). Should he get acquitted if he is able to prove that the images are of himself, taken by him in the mirror or something, long ago?
What do y’all think?
