Porn On Internet

Why is the Internet so enticing for pedophiles? " It’s created easily
accessible stimulation for child molesters. Anybody can download pictures in
complete anonymity. They do not have to make any kind of human contact" (Trebilcock

102). There may be definitions to describe pornography, but they do not truly
examine the destruction, degradation, and the pathetic nature of the concept.

The word pornography is more destructive than one might believe. It would fit
perfectly into Sonia Maasik and Jack Solomon’s essay entitles "Cheap

Thrills". The essay talks about the influencing images of music, video and
television. The computer is becoming more and more influencing because of the
internet these days. The problem with this type of material today is it is
assessable on every computer that is connected on-line to the Internet.

Pornography should be eliminated on the Internet so that impressionable
individuals can not access the degrading material. Al Gore says" Some say that
we should refrain from action, that all action to block children’s access to
objectable content amounts to censorship. To them I say, blocking your child’s
access to objectionable Internet content is not censoring that’s called
parenting"( Simons B10). Eliminating pornography on the net will help to
decrease the large amount of pornography users, which will decrease crime. Dr.

Victor Cline, from the University of Utah, conducted a study regarding serial
murders and rapists. He observed users developing a four-step pattern with
pornography. The first step in his study was the addiction. The serial murders
and rapist claimed that at first they become addicted to the material. Dr.

Cline’s study didn’t stop there. The serial murderers and rapists claimed to
continue on with their addiction. They increased to the next step of Dr.

Cline’s observed patterns. The use of pornography material escalated. They
felt as if they needed more and more pornography with hard core material to meet
their needs. Becoming indifferent to others was the third stage. The serial
murderers and rapists felt after becoming addicted and escalating their habits,
they needed to desensitize. This is when they stopped caring about others. As
long as their needs were fulfilled they felt that no harm was done. They were
the only innocence in the picture. The last step in Dr. Cline’s observation
was the actualization, which is the acting out what he/she saw regarding
pornography. This is the final stage that serial murderers and rapists concluded
themselves in this four-stage process. Therefore, this is the end for innocent
adults, children, and animals to get hurt. Pulling all pornography from the

Internet will allow fewer people to have access to the degrading material. This
is the material that is a common character trait among serial murderers and
rapists, which are a belief, held by Dr. Calvin. These four steps of Dr.

Calvin’s need to be prevented by us the users of the Internet and the people
of the world. We need to take it off the Internet now before it gets any worse.

Years ago people believed if pornography was to be legalized, the demand for the
material would decrease. Now with the experience and technology today, the
demand for the material is increasing. A study was directed in many cities with"de facto legalization." The results of this study concluded men becoming
addicted to the pornography material and then demanding more. This study also
determined, in the last two decades, the number of rapes and child sexual abuse
has increased tremendously due to the men who are acting out their desires. This
material is like a deadly weapon. It encourages one to strike a gun when they
have it in their hand. Then the criminal uses it as an excuse to react on the
topic. It was resolved in this study that when pornography addicts become"bored" with a certain type of material, they continue on to much harder
material. Material that consumes much more than they have previously observed.

They want the hard core pornography. They want it all and this is where the
situation becomes a problem. With these two studies from "Is it Pornography"
article, the conclusions were both acted out as a result. When a person consumes
hard core pornography, this is when most of the violent crimes occur. We must
not allow this degrading material to destroy our people, futures and world.

People need to realize the damage pornography does and stop it now.

"Pornography is illegal for the same reason crack cocaine, steroids, and
heroin are illegal. People’s lives are consumed and often destroyed by it and
those who use it are a threat to others" (Elmer-Dewitt 636).
