Internet censorship should stay legalized. Children shouldn't be exposed to certain body parts on television. My opponent goes first.

Hello,

I do not believe the internet should be censored in any fashion. While at first it may seem beneficial to remove material that may be offensive to some, that same material may be inoffensive to others. While you are entitled to believe that graphic images should not be shown to children, that belief is not shared by all. Options such as search filters and usage restriction software already exist to allow you to censor your children's internet experience, without affecting the greater internet. If censorship of the internet is enacted or expanded, the integrity of the information on the internet is compromised.
