There are over 70 million searches for porn done in the US every day - that is 25% of all online searches done in this country! Can something that is legal and so widely used be so bad? Yes! In America, society expects teenagers to view porn, especially "soft porn", to a certain degree, many saying that it's normal. But "soft porn" - which is so common today, from billboards to magazines, racy store ads to R-rated movies - leads to "adult" porn. Adult porn can lead to teenage porn and even child porn, which is extremely appalling and creepy. It also leads to "hard-core" porn, strip clubs, prostitution, human trafficking and more.
What's wrong with adults looking at adult porn? Isn't that okay? After all, it is legal. No! It's not okay! Women specifically are viewed in a very degrading way. Women should be looked on with the utmost respect and modesty, not as sexual objects! People who are consumed with porn look at others in a warped and perverted manner. And too many times, porn leads to sexual harassment and assaults. It's disgraceful! Stay away from porn at all costs. Do not allow it on your computer or in your home. Parents, install a block on computers and other devices to protect yourself and your family from this junk!
Many people, some you would never suspect, are in the news concerning pornography. Jared Fogle, of Subway fame, seemed like such a nice guy. But he has plead guilty to child pornography and other charges. Jared started by viewing "regular" porn. Josh Duggar, although he did not break the law, has fallen from grace, his troubles all stemming from viewing porn. Rev. Timothy Williams, a Baptist minister from McHenry County, was charged with possessing child pornography in August. He got so caught up in it, he couldn't stop. It all originated from viewing legal porn. Raul Guzman, 23, of Park City, was also arrested on child pornography charges in August. These are just a few names which are in the news today.
