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). This quotation,
from the “Censorship II: Should Electronic Networks Be Restricted?” article,
allows us to compare how destructive this topic really is to a drug that we all
know the level of destruction. The only problem with this is, it is easier to
get pornography today, than cocaine. All one has to do is turn on his computer
and down load on the Internet. It’s much too easy which makes it incredibly
scary. Anybody can down load images in a public library, a friend’s house, at
local schools, and at any computer that is accessible to the Internet. There is
no demand for ID checking; all that’s needed is a mouse and a few clicks.
It’s more assessable than one might think. A child or an adult can load images
at any age. A Veteran Internet surfer opposes, “If you don’t want them you
won’t get them” (Walsh 7). He claims that one must show proof of ID to
obtain such material and the material is off limits to minors/kids. This is
absolutely not true. If one is connected to the Internet, all they have to do is
type the word PORNOGRAPHY and it’s that easy. Just as curiosity kills the cat,
it also poisons the mind. Clifford L. Linedecker says, “The chances of
randomly coming across them are unbelievably slim” (7). Coming across
“them” which is pornography, is much easier than one must believe. Typing a
word is dealing with pornography (for the sake of research) into the computer
and a few clicks from the mouse can disprove by Linedecker’s message. It’s
much easier than one must believe. This unwanted material can be accessed
anytime with just a click from the mouse. In “ Internet Child-Pornography
Peddlers, Sex Predators Targeted by White House,” John Simons claims that
since 1960 the rape percent has increased over 500%. This is an enormous amount
of rapes that occur due to the use of pornography. This article also
acknowledges the fact that 57% of serial rapists that were studied claimed that
they imitated scenes that were learned from types of pornography (B10). Among
all the crimes in the America, sexual violence is driven to the maximum, due to
hard core pornography. According to Robert M. Baird, “Pornography in the
United States, is the third largest money-maker in systematic crime. After
following drugs and gambling, pornography has a $8-$10 billion per year
enterprise” (117). This is a large amount of money for this one topic to make
in a year, but the real issue is the human lives that are being tormented. This
material needs to be eliminated in all areas. On the Internet, this material
should be taken off 100%. It is obvious that pornography does more harm than
good. This material degrades the nature of impressionable individuals. This
material hurts the innocent and by taking it off the internet, the crime rates
of rape and murders will decrease in numbers tremendously. If we don’t give
the addicts their material, hopefully they will move on to bigger and better
ideas. Being able to define the word pornography truly, is a question we all
need to ask ourselves. We can get the definition from a dictionary or
encyclopedia, but can we agree with the definition. Is it bias on our beliefs?
Taking this material off the Internet will help to pursue the innocence of many
individuals and make it harder of the addicts to get the material. The road to
pornography, is also the road to destruction. Works Cited Baird, Robert M.
