Canada: American Sentenced For Possession Of Child Pornography . . . Of Cartoon Characters

There is an interesting criminal case in Canada where American ____ ____ 25, of Murrells Inlet, S.C., is under arrest for possession of child pornography. However, the images were not of human beings but cartoon characters. Canada treats sexual cartoon images as pornography – a view widely rejected in the United States as inimical to free speech protections. Full Article

    Okay that is ridiculous. Though so are some American policies on child pornography. No country has their laws on child pornography fine turned enough yet to be as beneficial as possible.

    A victimless crime, in other words. What this amounts to is a thought-crime.

      So true what you say. Governments more and more wish to control every aspect of out lives; even what we think and how we perceive things, and it must stop.

      A famous photographer shot some photos of her own children, unclothed, in her yard out in the country. Concerned about including the images in one of her books, she consulted with the FBI. The agent she talked to looked at the images and said, “Nope, these aren’t pornography.” He went in to tell her, “Look, I’ve met people who are aroused by doorknobs and auto parts. Anything could be someone’s pornography.”

      • Q

        Doorknobs and auto parts? I believe it; but where do you draw the line?
        The article says 137 animated images of characters under the age of 18 being sexually abused were found on his laptop, but they were animated cartoon images, so I have trouble seeing how they could possibly say beyond a shadow of doubt the images were of underage characters; couldn’t they have been of adults dressed as underage minors?

        They also seem to love the word “abuse,” which they use even if what happened was consensual. This paints a distorted image of the facts in my view. If an underage girl agreed (sometimes instigated) to consensual intercourse it’s “abuse” because she is a minor and it casts the distorted image that “guarantees” a conviction, and she isn’t grown up enough to make a sound decision; in other words they say “she didn’t know what she was doing.” Then; if an underage girl robs a liquor store she is automatically tried as an adult, which “guarantees” a conviction and “she knew what she was doing.” Either way the prosecutor comes out smelling a rose. I think these laws are in need of clarification and much refinement.

          I mean how old were Ichy and Scratchy of the Simpsons, and what about Bart and Lisa, obviously die unschuldige Kinder, watching and giggling as the cat gets sliced up and boiled in a stew? Made me so angry, I wanted to do something mean to that mouse.
