That leaves plenty of room for authorities to maneuver as they see fit.
In the UK, in November 2016, the government announced plans to censor “non-conventional” pornography.
That’s why many UK citizens are opposed to the idea of age verification checks. It isn’t as simple as defining it as anyone who is nude in front of a camera.
If that were true, many of our favorite modern dramas would constitute pornography. The problem is that defining pornography is extremely nuanced.
More specifically, parents can explain to their children that pornography isn’t representative of genuine relationships; rather, it is fiction and fantasy produced for entertainment purposes.
Additionally, parents may want to explain that sexuality isn’t anything to be ashamed of – it is simply a part of being human.
After all, most parents would agree that stopping minors from accessing adult content is a worthy goal.
However, some view the matter as a tactic to pull on the heartstrings of citizens and manipulate them into forfeiting their liberties.
Ohio, Justice Stewart was famously quoted as saying the following regarding pornography: “I shall not today attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced within that shorthand description [hard-core pornography]; and perhaps I could never succeed in intelligibly doing so.
Users must be 18 years of age or older to view pornographic content.
Of course, that may not sound unreasonable at first.
There are many ways that parents can protect their children from pornography.
Proactive parents can sit down with their kids and talk with them about adult content.
