I agree with both Falkvinge's reasoning and his conclusions. Child porn must be de-criminalized - otherwise, the censorship that child porn laws legitimize will have worse effects than the porn.

- What Peter Thoenen recounted did not surprise me at all. That is standard operating procedure for most of the U.S.A., especially 30 or 40 years ago.
And yes, children have been put on the sex offender's registry for life for that sort of thing. I recall reading a news account of a 10 year old girl this happened to - I'm thinking it was in Michigan. Now she's in her 20's and she can't get a job and is restricted in where she can live because she's on the registry.Sep 10, 2012
- hey thanks for the explanation. I don't know, in the 70s my parents bought this sex education book as I was a children with not only naked adults but also naked children. The "sex scenes" depicted there were made "not-erotic" but it seemed normal. I remember reading that book with my mom. Nowadays my understanding in USA the mere possession of that book would give you a lot of trouble... what do you think?
well I guess each time and society has good and bad things, seen in retrospective. I do not think that "procedure" was "good".Sep 11, 2012
- I am not against corporal punishment (that I think it's still fully legal in the US, isn't it???) but simply not for that reason.Sep 11, 2012
- You're bringing back memories.... Doubtless the sex ed book Alessio received was more helpful than the Christian ones given to me, which basically explained that females aren't interested in sex, that 9 out of 10 girls never masturbate (and that the other 1 in 10 should be avoided), and that it is a great sin to think about sex or talk about sex. Then there was a bit about eggs and sperm and waiting for marriage.
Unfortunately, those Christian sex miseducation books are legal to possess, while the book Alessio had might get someone 300 years in prison, depending on the jurisdiction and the prosecutor.Sep 11, 2012
- Wellmy family was Catholic and my mom used to teach Catholic Religion to children. I think you might have simply had a bad book, do not generalize with Christian stuff etc. But we are going way offtopic, with religion now.Sep 11, 2012
- Ha! i read this article on the 7th and remember thinking that not that I agreed with it, but I also silently bet myself that not only wouldagree with it, you'd probably at least write a G+ post about it, if not a blog post. :-)Sep 12, 2012
