Pornography on the Internet Have you ever been searching for something on the Internet and clicked on an innocent looking link and been sent to some pornographic site? This happens more times than most people realize. Many times dead links or incorrect addresses will automatically direct you to a pornographic site. The way that pornography on the Internet is accessed needs to be changed, so it is not accidentally opened. There is a lot of controversy over whether pornography should be on the Internet or not. Personally I could care less whether it was on the Web or not. I do not look at any of it nor will I ever care to. There are some people out there who do choose to look at pornography. I feel that is their personal choice. As long as the person is 18 or over they should be able to stare at pornography on the screen till their eyes cross if they want to. The only real problem I see is how a user can be so easily misdirected to a pornography site and trying to get out of one of these sites after you have accidentally been sent there can be annoying. I am sure we have all had this problem, you somehow get sent to a porn site and all these little boxes start popping up to go to other sites, to look at pictures, and to buy things. Trying to click your way out can be crazy. Everytime you finally get rid of one box another one pops up. If you try to use the back button to get out, you cannot because the site’s designer has it set up so you are trapped in there. The way these sites are set up needs to be changed. A user should not be sent there unless they typed in “pornography” in a search engine or they typed in a particular pornographic site’s address. Misdirection to these sites needs to be stopped. Many people argue that pornography should not be on the Internet because young children could get into these sites and see things they do not need to be seeing. In my opinion, young children should not even be on the Internet without adult supervision. There is a lot of information on the Internet that young children do not need to be accessing anyway besides pornography. What I do not understand is that you can go to a store and buy a pornographic magazine or go to a video store and rent a pornographic movie and people are less bothered by these than the same thing on the Internet. I feel that just because there is pornographic material on the Internet that does not mean that you have to look at it. If it bothers then just do not go near these sites. Use the Internet for your own purposes and allow other people to use it for their reasons. As long as the way pornographic sites are found on the Internet are changed so that people are not accidentally sent to these sites I see no reason why these sites cannot be on the Internet with all the other information out there. I will never go to these sites so if they are removed it will not affect at all since it does not affect me now. It is a personal decision that each person has to make for themselves and I think everyone should have the right to access whatever material they are interested in.
Cyberporn Essay – Internet Obscenity and Pornography Argumentative Persuasive Essays
Internet Obscenity and Pornography This essay is about obscenity and pornography on the web. I will be discussing my views and opinions about this subject. If it hasn’t already obscenity and pornography being openly displayed on the web will affect you. Maybe you have a younger brother or sister, or a child, or for some of us a child in the future. Whatever the case may be, YOU WILL BE AFFECTED! How would you feel if you came home from a hard day of work only to find your five-year-old child on the web looking graphically nude pictures? I am sure it would be a shock and quite a scare for you as it would be for me. How do you explain to you child of five what that is or what the people in the photographs are doing? Do you lie or do you actually explain to him or her about sex and pornography? I know that these are a lot of difficult questions, but if something is not done about this, you could be facing the very real truth of having to find answers to these questions. Not only will you have to explain what it is, what happens when they start asking more questions than you are willing to answer? I never realized how bad this was until I was surfing the web and about three times while I was on looking around from site to site, windows came up within my main page with four to six different porn sites you could go to. That was when I realized this is a growing problem. I don’t think that you should have to have your children or whoever sit on you lap and you guide them through the web to make sure they only go to “safe sites.” Children should have the freedom to explore without having their minds corrupted at a young age. Obscenity on the other hand is another story. This could or could not affect all children at a young age. That depends on the competency of that child. To get obscenity from the web you must first be able to read and second, be able to sound out the words. Not all children can do that. But if they can or could, what happens when your child gets angry with you and calls you a bitch? I am sure that would not make anyone too happy. This category runs over into another though. If you frequently say these words at home, a child may recognize the words in print more easy. So the best bet would be not to use them at home either. In conclusion I feel that children have to be monitored all the time when they are using the web, or you could be forced to answers questions that you aren’t ready to answer. But, a even better solution would be to regulate what comes across the web and how much of it. Parents need to start using the technology that is out there to block these sites from their computer.
