Should all Internet porn be preemptively blocked in Canada?

  • If it's available children will have access to it and children must not watch porn.

    Mature adults or young adults understand its entertainment purposes, that it does not portray natural sexual relations and it should not be taken seriously enough to develop addiction. Children will not understand its entertainment purposes, and they are in danger of growing an addiction if they grow up watching it. Society Vehemently agrees children should not watch porn.

    Disclaimer argument: Adding the disclaimer negates responsibility.

    A child should not be held responsible for a decision to lie about their age if they do not understand the dangers. If they are held accountable then child predators within online chat rooms would not be held liable when children lie about their ages. Society has law that prevent liability for a child's decision making skills. Children lying about their age to watch porn would fall under that category.

    Parents should be held responsible argument.

    While that rationale is true, children should still not suffer for incompetent parenting or areas in which parents do not have control. If parents forget to feed their children we take actions to help and in some cases we remove children from bad homes therefore child protection is a social initiative. Some parents are aware of online dangers while others aren't. It is reasonable to assume that steps taken by older parents to prevent their children from access to porn can ultimately fail as children become more tech savvy than their older generation. No matter what steps parents take so long as they are available there will always be ways for children, even a minority to have access to it and to share it amongst themselves. There are cases where children who had access to porn exchanged it with their peers for toys and money. In a fair society all children must develop with satisfactory mental health and it is reasonable to assumed that it is impossible to assure parental control in the home or outside the home therefore society must take steps to ensure children do not watch porn.

  • If it's available children will get it

    A mature adult or young adult would understand that porn is a form of entertainment and should not be taken seriously enough to emulate or develop addiction. A child however does not understand its entertainment purposes, that it does not portray natural sexual relationships, and they are in danger of developing an addiction if they grow up watching it. Society vehemently agrees children should not watch porn.

    Disclaimer argument.
    A disclaimer that only a mature audience can watch would assume that a child should be held responsible for lying about their age. If that's the case child predators within chat rooms would not be held responsible for the damages a child suffers if that child lied about their age. If we agree that children are not held liable for decisions that would harm them in our society, the choice to lie about age should not be hung on their heads when it comes to watching porn.

    Parent's fault argument.
    Children should not be held accountable for incompetent parenting. It's like saying a child's accountable if their parents forget to feed him. In order to live in a fair society all children must be given an equal satisfaction of physical and mental health. Anything less than that would deem some better off than others.

  • Porn isn't inherently bad

    There is nothing inherently wrong with porn, and online porn allows people to view sex acts and explore their sexuality without fear of embarrassment. Still, regardless of the arguments for banning porn, like most things on the Internet (and most things in the world in general), a popular activity or product can't be successfully banned. Its impossible and a waste of resources.

  • Nothing's wrong with porn.

    The freedom to look at pornography on the internet doesn't cause harm to anyone. Putting this in the hands of the government just allows bad parents to get away with being bad. If you don't want your kid looking at porn, do something about it yourself. It's not the government's business.
