Ask yourself this question: Does today's modern civilized world favor thrusting children into adult situations like child birth and the responsibilities for supporting said child that follow?
I'm going to flatly say no. Sex education is poor. Welfare and who deserves it is still a hotly contested topic. The actual pregnancy and time after often results in time lost educating a youth that may never be caught up on, additionally imposing social and financial burdens on possible relatives. Some families will fare better than others, sure, but I'd rather not gamble bringing a child into the world that can't be provided for and maybe even thrust into the adoption system. Hyper-sexualizing and even glorifying the allure of young, emotionally juvenile girls doesn't help this.
Now, some might argue this media an outlet for those urges, but it can also serve as an escalator to the point where images and videos just aren't enough. Why would we dare consider kiddy porn okay if its hand drawn or computer generated, solely because an actual child isn't depicted despite garnering a specific and similar emotional response? Spare me the "But it's art!" crap. People fling poo on a sheet and call it art. Artists always have intent, and I say this as someone who likes and isn't half bad at drawing. For those that enjoy replicating reality, I'd rather not know why they're in such sexual situations. For those artists just pandering to a fetish? It's exactly that, and not the majesty of the human form or other such evasive drivel.
Kids need to be kids. Humans are living longer and healthier these days thanks to advances in medicine and food distribution/preservation. Underpopulation of the species isn't a concern. So, I pose the question, if such evocative depictions are not bad things, why are they good?
Teen pregnancy, where are all these the criminals that are causing it, these bad people skirting the boundaries of society, because every time I see some young girl thats knocked up she's with her 15-16 year old boyfriend who was too dumb to be careful, don't see people running out to call him a @#%^phile though "oh, they're just kids having fun". but you're right about sex education being pretty bad.
and sorry to derial the thread, the video was pretty funny I think. Edited, Apr 24th 2012 9:19am by Lafaiel
