‘Children accessing porn should cause moral-panic’

Childrens comm logoAn article in the UK’s Telegraph newspaper claims that children, as young as 11 watching pornography is widespread.

A study from Sue Berelowitz, deputy children’s commissioner has said that in one school the entire year of 14 year old boys had seen porn and half of the girls (apparently they didn’t want to watch but the boys made them).

Miss Berelowitz added: “No one should be panicking – but why should not there be a moral panic?

She goes on to say… some boys now felt they had an “absolute entitlement to have sex with girls, any time, any place, any where, with whomsoever they wished”.

The watchdog was so concerned that it had more research to see if boys actually understood what “giving consent” to sex actually meant.

Summary

So, teens watching porn has the very realistic possibility to turn then into rapists? What a pile of shit. How can anyone make such a huge leap?

Before such easy access of the internet, when teens had to huddle round an actual physically printed porn magazine, did that turn them into people of ‘entitlement’?
