The women's liberation movement is the one place that is ours, the one place where we can centre the interests of women, and we must be bold and unflinching as we challenge male entitlement to women's bodies. If men like our feminism and if it gives them erections, we're doing it wrong.

Until we can assess the level of risk each paedophile caught with child abuse images poses, and find proven ways of preventing paedophiles from accessing child abuse images and assaulting children in the real world, we should think twice before removing what is currently the only barrier we have to protect children from unthinkable harm.

Clare McGlynn | Posted 19.01.2017 | UK
Clare McGlynn

But just because the criminal law has little role does not mean viewing porn in public is ok. It's yet another commonplace form of street harassment, of sexual harassment, like having to put up with wolf-whistling. People viewing porn in public know they are making others uncomfortable, or worse.

Javed Khan | Posted 29.11.2016 | UK
Javed Khan

This is a mendacious attempt to derail sensible safeguarding measures presumably as it is perceived to be easier to decry any attempts to regulate internet sites as 'unworkable', than have to make the case for why existing BBFC regulations for classification of sex on film might be reviewed and possibly modernised in light of changing sexual attitudes.

'Blocking Extreme Porn' Is A Gateway To Internet Censorship

Jerry Barnett | Posted 23.11.2016 | UK
Jerry Barnett

And so their moment has come. If these plans come to pass, the BBFC will be granted the power to order Internet providers to block sites that don't conform to its bizarre standards. However, it should be noted that these standards are based on moral judgement rather than actual evidence of harm.

A Porn Stars' Response To Children Accessing Porn

Samantha Bentley | Posted 20.10.2016 | UK

Blaming porn for children being sexually active and anxious about sex, is a single minded and uneducated view. Snapchat, Tinder, Facebook and even Whatsapp, all give young people an endless platform for swapping messages and photos without their parents knowing.

Javed Khan | Posted 11.10.2016 | UK

Theresa May talked very tough last week in her conference speech about making sure business interests don't undermine the wider needs of the community. An ideal start would be for her government to ensure the regulator receives the powers it needs to block sites that are not willing to ensure their customers are old enough to view them.

Let's Make Sure Online Porn Is Strictly For Over 18s

Peter Wanless | Posted 15.09.2016 | UK Politics
Peter Wanless

Recent research by the NSPCC found that young people are as likely to see online porn accidentally as search for it, and that repeated viewing can lead them to see porn as realistic. Exposing children to porn at a young age, before they are equipped to cope with it, can be extremely damaging to their developing understanding of sex and relationships.

Verity Ryan

Theresa May could be a much needed breath of fresh air to the government's approach on sex education: as Home Secretary it is rumoured she was supportive of bids to make the subject compulsory. With a wafer-thin majority, and battle ahead with Brexit, she may not be willing to use up political capital on revisiting it.

Sexualisation, gender stereotypes of both men and women, not seeing girls and women in the media in diverse roles - this all damages boys too. Studies show that even the mildest sexual objectification of women makes men more callous towards them.
