5. Re: Morning Metaverse Jun 3, 2010, 17:38 Rigs
That's what happens when you try and shame people into thinking something is wrong. They just want it more. Duh!

nin ate his Wheaties this morning, I see...

Really, there isn't anything too shocking there. The ones that concern me the most at the moment are:

The average age at which a child first sees porn online is 11.

There are 116,000 searches for 'child porn' every day.

Having a 12-going-on-18 year old (so she thinks), I worry about it constantly. We've already had our 'run-in' with the online porn. I couldn't be mad, I did the same thing when I was her age. I'm not going to scold her for being curious (and part of me thinks it's way better to take care of her curiousity online rather than when she gets her first boyfriend). When I was 13, there were BBS's, Compuserve, AOL, and Prodigy (which I was on). We had to look hard for what we wanted back then but it was there if you knew where to go. My parents didn't really have a problem with it as long as it didn't become an obsession or an epidemic. Nowadays it different. It's too easy for it to just fall right into your lap. Many times I've been working on homework with her and run into some sites that had NSFW ads and whatnot. It's embarrassing, but it's something we both know is there and she's respectful enough to know that she's not allowed near it. Well, that and the little promise I made that if I caught her being 'curious' again (and, oh yes, I read the logs, you better believe it) that we were gonna have...THE TALK (cue horror-movie screaming)...
