Julian Lennon has said publicly that Paul McCartney showed more concern and gave him more emotional support than his own father did.

    I cannot understand how such men can hold their heads up in public. I just don't get it.
    I agree with your every word!

    It is a completely different story when things turn to depictions of children either pornographic or violent in nature. These are the virtual worlds I am referring to. Anime porn, virtual realities where child characters are raped, murdered, brutalized, etc. This is a whole different ball of wax.
    Hope that makes sense.

    I find it fascinating that the country of origin of this type of Anime material is Japan. Since Japan is known to have one of the lowest crime rates in the world, the correlation between violent acts and people who view such material is not statistically relevant.

    Of course it's my own opinion, the opinion rental shop was fresh out of borrowed opinions.

    With all due respect, there is absolutely nothing ironic about what her great-grandmother said. She is grieving. She is suffering a tremendous, horrifying loss. One day, I hope, she will regain balance and come to, if not a sense of peace, at least a sense of acceptance. But for crying out loud... this is a victim-friendly site. I find the suggestion that the words she said in this time of grief are somehow "wrong", or "ironically" bad, to be downright cynical and utterly devoid of compassion.

    O/T: People fundamentally misunderstand irony. With tongue only slightly in cheek, I blame Alanis Morissette.

    Actually, that discrepancy (the wide availability of extreme porn and extremely violent media v. rates of violence) is the subject of much academic inquiry and debate. Hentai tentacle monster porn is shocking, as is the proliferation of ultra-violent porn in Japan that features women dressed in school-girl clothing being abused... there is no other word for it. Blech. I could go on, but it makes me physically ill.

    From the Denver Post:

    Quote:

    The family's pastor, Rick Long of Grace Church in Arvada, said that for Jessica's mother, Sarah, the arrest "begins another phase of the nightmare."

    The news is a "Catch-22" for the family, he said, meaning they are glad to have Sigg off the street but will now have to endure new details of the gruesome crime being made public.

    Prayers to Jessica's family and friends, may they have the strength to endure their living nightmare.

    I realize I'm behind a long ways still... but yes, I question his version of events if this is what he claims, verbatim. It doesn't quite add up.

    If you're interested I recently read an interesting, if lengthy, research paper on the effect of anime and manga on kids - both American and Japanese. It was enlightening noting the ideological differences of the two countries.

    From the outside looking in, I would say that North America in general is bad at providing safety for its children, and Colorado in particular has a very poor track record.

    There are a lot of societal contributors but the undercurrent of acceptance and glorification of violence in your society is a major one.

    It really is a shared responsibility, if so.

    I am going to get bashed for this...so will go and make dinner after this.....but you know when I was a teen, kids didnt sit around all day and kill things for hours on end on a computer or watch every type of sexual act you can imagine.......yep may have played soldiers and got hold of a playboy or similar, but the internet has bought all of this to a whole new level and I personally think it is wrong, very wrong and out of control and people too accepting of it...

    The innocence of children is being taken too young by the things they are viewing on the internet.

    You know you go to a motivational speaker (and I've been to quite a few) they will tell you to say over and over " I can do it, I am this and I am that"...etc..........what is watching the killing and maiming of other humans for hours on end doing to these brains. I am sorry but call me old fashioned, my children will not be playing these games for hours on end.........I personally think it does desensitise (not sure if a word) them to violence......or maybe make them think it is more normal that it is...

    I dont know, I just dont think that all the changes the internet has bought to the world are good....especially for children...

    and if it is true, being in counselling at the age of 15 for an addiction to porn............dang.

    My opinion only and absolutely meaning no offence to anyone.
    ON a positive note!
    Did you know Kids that play video games are more aware of everything going on aroud them. They took10 kids that played games and 10 that didnt they showed a video of a bank robbery and the kids that played the games SAW everything that happend down to what everyone was wearing which way they walked etc etc.

    Doctors are playing video games before surgery it improves hand eye coordination.

    Most games these days are war games and war is real we are in it.
    Fantasy games are abundant also. Are they violent yes but so is the world and the world didnt get that way because of video games..

    Kids didnt get this way because of video games!

    Kids got this way because of parents and how parents abused or ignored their children. Children need to be loved and nurtured. We can try to blame games and tv and porn etc etc for what these perps do when in the end it comes down to
    how that child was raised.

    all JMO

    We know these perps exist and if we dont think think they live in our own back yard you are fooling no one but yourself. Parents need to provide safety for their children. The School (ONCE the kids are in the doors) need to provide to keep our children safe. They cant be walking alone! We may as well paint a big red target on them...
    We cant keep or kids in the house 24 7 so we have to arm them with what we think might help them to fight back if caught by a perp. Mace or a 5 star alarm system with 5 star you press the button and ypur talking to someone instantly
    you can get help.
    We need to help our kids fight back!
    Karate classes for little kids
    Self defense should be taught in school gym classes! Een if it just the basics of how to get away. Kids nead to practice screaming! I put thouse big bull horns or air horns on my kids bikes when they were younger anyone came near them holy sheet

    any one that has kids walking alone need to invest in 5 STAR emergency response its well worth it. and a can of mace!

    just my
    You could scare them away with that horn and it attracted ALOT of attention!
    there are so many things we can do to keep our kids safe

    I think video games have had a terrible influence on people especially during the past 20 years. Minors and teens who play certain vid games are encouraged to beat, shoot and kill.
    That is not a normal thought process...play that enough and IMO the game violence affects the player.
    Positive activities affect one positively....negative activities affect one negatively. It's sometimes that easy.
