I happen to despise double standards, as I've mentioned in earlier posts on this website (doubt anyone remembers it though). But there’s this one issue that have angered me for a couple of years now.
How come child pornography is looked down upon and not gore (beheading, torture etc)?
Why is it that everyone view gore as something wonderful and is socially accepted in our society and everyone goes apeshit every time child pornography is being mentioned?
Is it really that much worse to possess videos/images where children are being sexually molested, compared to videos/images where children are being beheaded or slowly being tortured to death?
I think it's a slap in the face to ban child pornography and on the same time allow gore. How long have child pornography been illegal and why on earth has no one even argued that gore should be illegal as well?
I actually thinks it’s damn disgusting that people enjoy seeing someone or a mob murder someone.
The reason I brought up children as an example in this thread, rather than grown ups; is because it might be easier for some to compare gore with child pornography.
