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 r

apist 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 fo

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
