Furry porn + innocent children browsing the internet = drama/chaos

:iconbrontolina:

Apologies if this has already been discussed; the article looks kind of old. [link]

Although I am by no means a fan of furries, I can't help but feel that this situation was a massive overreaction. All because some soccer mom and/or the school failed to supervise one kid's internet usage, a guy loses his job and mascots at local games get banned. They changed the name of the team in case the mention of the word "tigers" scares the mentally-scarred little boy. The mother of the child apparently "had" to throw out his Disney videos because they freaked him out. Instead of pandering to the child, why didn't she try to discuss it with him? Disposing of the videos and campaigning to the local council just reinforces the idea that there is something worth being scared of.

I don't see why this had to become a local news story and a community-wide issue. If I had stumbled across Internet porn as a child (this article looks like it was from the 1990's, so I'm guessing young Jeffery was from around my generation) I doubt my mum would have gone on a ridiculous campaign to protect every minor in the town. She would have probably explained to me that it was a "grown-up" thing that wasn't suitable for young ones, shown that it was not something to fear, and left it at that.

The boy in the story sounds like it really messed him up, but I really don't think his mother's reaction would have helped. I wonder what would happen if parents responded in this way to every incident involving a minor discovering internet porn?

Yes, furry porn is pretty gross (especially if you're a child) but associating anything animal-related with pornography and systematically removing it from the town's social and sporting activities just seems excessive and ludicrous to me.

tl;dr: Seven-year-old boy finds furry porn on the internet, becomes mentally scarred, and causes Mrs. Broflovski his mum to go apeshit and get everyone in town involved in making the world safe for her precious little angel to compensate for her atrocious lack of parenting skills.

he becomes mentally scarred?
really?
how?

sry but mental scarring is much more likely to occur from seing tons of dead bodies in cinemas,videos and tv.
id rather have my kids watch porn than have them watch violence.

I saw my first porn with 8, and found it funny...
I think what that mum did was a regular act for today, but the team changing the name is pure bullshit to me XD

This is what happens when we let children on the computer unsupervised and without parental controls on. And the fact that the whole bloody city took action because of ONE unsupervised child on the internet sickens me. Wreck years of tradition because some stupid kid found porn. If that doesn't epitomize that America revolves around children, I don't know what does. Stuff like this makes me even MORE proud of the fact that I refuse to have children.

what i find more entertaining is he was mentally traumatized by porn..
furry or not, porn is porn, and its a natural part of life regardless.
so rather than even attempt to explain the actions of whatever he was seeing, they decided its so terrible they had to ban it..
can't wait till he realizes he was traumatized by something he's expected to do to another human costume or not.

All my friends as a kid were boys, so I found porn fairly early. Never furry porn, but regular Playboy magazine stuff.
Seeing that stuff when you're still young is practically educational. It's the world we live in, and women can take off their clothes and get money. Better to learn that when you're young, and not be shocked when you're older :lol:

I remember back in Elementary School. It was somewhere on the month of December of 2004,2005,2006 or 2003. That I was on a Norada Tracks Santa website that had a link to a porn site!! I didn't really freak out but I got sickened. I remember seeing pics of a women giving a man a BJ! I thought that was a hot dog! I was so lucky that my mom and dad weren't at home at the time I got on that site by mistake! I later saw the same website while searching "Bambi 2" back in 2005! This was way before I got my own Laptop so I was on my mom's computer!

wait.. he was at a library and it actually allowed the website to be brought up?
... tbh that sounds like double failure, one on the person that setup them library comps, and another on the mother for not straightening the issue out with her kid rather than over inflating it..

Is it wrong that I laughed at this? When I see stuff like this I actullay think the parents are more innocent and naive then the kids, if you own the internet you must do so with the GASP realisation that not all sites are wholesome and good. We have adult video stores, adult books, all of which are (mostly) kept out of the reach of children. If you have the internet in your house, learn how to bloody use it--it sounds cynical to say but if you have the internet you quickly get used to not looking at it through rose tinted glasses. Heck, there were times when I popup of a woman in a bra or something used to make me fumble and close the window. Now it is just...oh look, another spam email about my non existant penis...another massive clit on the popular page, yawn yawn.

The mother could have actullay set up protection regarding the internet - though I don't like the idea of anyone under 10-11 (shall we say...before year 6-7) using the internet without a parent sitting near them. In the library, we do not allow kids of a certain age to sit on the internet alone. Makes sense to me, kids at that age may stumble across all sorts of things...not that it is great for say, a 13 year old to see stuff like that--but they would at least have some sense of understanding and more of a--world weariness about it.

I used the internet when I was about...hum, nine or ten. I remember using it to look up a look of sailormoon stuff. So you can probably imagine what I found ahaha. I was using the internet way before social networking had taken off, or before wiki. So a lot of sites I found were fanmade ones. Not a lot of people had the internet in my class, much less a home PC...I think I was broken early on :rofl:

Yeah, it's good that the library supervises children when they are using the internet. Parents should try doing that themselves :lol:

I got the internet when I was about 12/13, which I originally used for Neopets... so I didn't encounter too much bad stuff.

Yeah, kids get real shirty when they aren't allowed on the internet because their parents have not signed their forms either. And when they have permisson and their friends don't but their friends sit with them, we have to tell their friends to go do something else because they haven't got a form signed. Then it gets nasty. We get a lot of flack for doing our jobs and keeping kids safe from the nasty

When I was little and stumbled across porn on the internet, I just closed the tab or pressed backspace :shrug: It didn't bother me too much, I found it gross but that's about it

Instead of making a big deal about it, the mum should have just talked to the kid and told him it was something for grown-ups
