She Had a NamE

“WASHINGTON — Hoping to raise awareness among men for a multi-faceted campaign against child pornography, prostitution and pornography, a group calling itself The Defenders has joined forces with Shared Hope International for a media blitz beginning this Father’s Day weekend.
While the focus of the campaign will be directed against child pornography, the Defenders and Shared Hope International seek to raise awareness for what they see a the greater problem of pornography.

“The campaign targets child pornography,” deputy director of communications for Shared Hope International Melissa Snow told XBIZ. “However, in the broader sense, we see porn as a gateway that leads to child pornography.”

Anti-Porn Group Hits the Airwaves This Weekend continues…

“The ad, titled “She Had A Name,” calls on men to join the group by “becoming protectors of children, not abusers..
..”Real men defend women and children no matter whose daughters they are.”

“Sexual slavery is rampant around the world, but God forbid we should attack the problem in every nation on earth and allow our own children here in North America to be taken, used, and destroyed by the predators,” Smith said. “We need men to take a stand against the commercial sexual exploitation of children in America.”

Despite the coalition’s efforts to raise awareness, one major network has balked at the idea giving them a platform.
Snow confirmed that NBC had refused to air the ads, citing the campaign’s controversial message. She also noted that several networks had not returned their calls to buy ad time.

The ads will begin airing on Fox today and run through the holiday weekend. Additional spots will begin running on CNN and TNT next week in select, regional markets.”

Too “controversial” for NBC eh?
That’s laughable.

During the 1960′s self proclaimed “sexual liberation” movement debates over pornography typically clashed with moral and conservative values.
Shows like “Hair” and “Oh, Calcutta!” challenged the intent of obscenity laws and included nudity on the stage.
“Community standards” became the determining factor.

Stanley v. Georgia (1969) upheld the civil rights of consumers to possess pornography in their own home.

Liberals predictably argued that the government has no business getting in the way of people’s “freedom of expression.”
Moral beliefs about sex should not be used to censor individual tastes or proclivities, they asserted.

Then along came what some jokingly call “Adult” Bookstores ( the perverts who frequent these are anything but “adultlike”)
The VCR market exploded in the seventies, making porn accessible to one and all. And then along came the World Wide Web.

Women and men of conscience sought to explore the impact of the multi million dollar industry on women and their place in society.

Anyone honest will admit the degrading and even abusive nature of de-personalizing sex and objectifying women which serves to endorse degradation.

Is it any wonder that sexual abusers and pedophiles own stockpiles of pornography?
The explicit link between viewing pornography and violence against women is irrefutable.

Pornography is nothing but a violation of woman’s inherent dignity.
She is an “object”, something to be objectively observed, scrutinized, and…”used” for male pleasure and consumption.

There is no reason not to ban its production and prohibit its dissemination, other than to cater to male lust and to fill the pockets of the porn distributors with more millions.

Before you start shouting “civil liberties”…
Raise your hand if you would want your daughter selling her soul to this ahem…”industry”?

Just remember..
It’s always someone’s daughter.

    Something has to be done, it’s got way out of hand. The bottom up approach doesn’t seem to be working, so might as well try top down. Some how the snakes head has to be cut off so the rest of it doesn’t survive.

    Somebody needs to be able to explain the difference between Renaissance Art and Abercrombie and Fitch. Nudes in the one are uplifting. The other is trash, and exploitation.

    This is good news, Angel!

    NBC truly is off base with this one, but “off base” is their usual position. I hope Fox or Limbaugh or someone with a huge audience gets NBC’s stance on this out to the public.

    It’s not just always someone’s daughter, but also many times it’s someone’s son. It’s the worst evil immaginable, and to my way of thinking, it’s just another form of terrorism.

    Excellent post!

    There’s a lot of hypocrisy surrounding this subject. Everybody talks about the evils, but meanwhile the market for it keeps growing. Somebody out there is buying it.

    Here, here, Angel. The need for pornography is the hallmark of a sociopath, and should be considered the sign of mental illness for anyone who consumes it.

    What the Hell is wrong with a person, that such a “consumer” cannot find, marry and have fullfilling sex with a normal woman?
