According to a recent survey nearly 75 percent of kids in UK have been disturbed by images which they saw on the Internet.
75%? Sounds a bit high to me.
The survey undertaken by NSPCC, a leading charity promoting the cause of children, was based on the polling done on the children’s website There4me.com.
Ah! So a completely impartial and trustworthy source, then!
NSPCC has urged computer manufacturers and retailers to install mechanisms in computers that would prevent children from being exposed to inappropriate content.
Expressing the view of the organisation, NSPCC policy advisor, Zoe Hilton remarked “Children are just a few clicks away from innocently stumbling across upsetting or even dangerous pictures and films such as adult sex scenes, violent dog fights, people self-harming and children being assaulted.”
Gosh, really? Adult sex scenes? Violent dogging? I'd hate to see your bookmark file, Zoe!
Ms Hilton also stress on the need for incorporating advanced parental controls in computers.
The survey has also brought to light the need of video hosting and social networking sites to monitor content posted on their sites and become more proactive in removing any offensive material.
Blah, blah, blah. The world is a strange, cruel and unforgiving place, Zoe. An abattoir is infinitely more disturbing than anything I've ever seen on youtube (apart from 2 girls 1 cup, maybe.) You're never going to stop kids from exploring the world out there.
Pain and distress are there to teach you lessons. Didn't like seeing that donkey porn? Don't fucking look at it. Do something stupid and get a scar? A much better lesson than some smarmy cunt patronising you.
Stop fucking cosseting the kids. Stop trying to ban them from exploring the virtual world. And if it really bothers you, don't give the fuckers a PC. Chase them out into the parks and streets to ride their bikes, play games. Let them enjoy real life. Let them skin their knees and interact with each other and exercise and get fresh air.
And play hide and seek with Gary Glitter.
