What do you mean, there have been plenty of amazing child actors. My personal favorite is the girl from Interview with the Vampire.

So...is he dead or what?

Depictions of children that aren't real (virtual, art, cartoons) could be protected under the 1st Amendment since, again, it isn't a real child engaging in the act. Also, whether or not someone looks like a minor depends on your subjective view. There are plenty of pornstars that are over 18 yet could pass as much younger than they really are. Should we ban them because they "look" like a minor?

- In this case, the government is right. The parent should have the most pull when it comes to what happens with their children. However, this isn't the case when the parent's wishes (or actions) are seriously and needlessly endangering the children.
- Nothing wrong with that. I believe it is only illegal if actual children are involved, though I'm sure some people have gotten busted for having a lolicon stash (I know of at least one case). Anyway, I personally don't see a problem with this kind of pornography unless it has an actual child in it. Drawings, sex dolls, toys, cartoons, hentai - these are not real children. They are not real people. Also, one cannot control what they are sexually attracted to no more than they can control their skin color. In a way, pedophilia, hebephilia, ephebophilia, etc are a sexual orientations. That being said, there are laws in this country that dictate acting on these urges are illegal. I wouldn't consider this to be acting on it.
- These sexual assaults were probably done by some Muslims. They've been doing that almost unchecked ever since that refugee crisis started. So I have no problem with this next event blocking out men. Yeah, men get sexually assaulted and raped too, but I don't think it happens as much as it does to women (in fact, I'm certain of it). Rape and other forms of sexual assault are one of the worst crimes a person can do to another human being and I'd have all rapists tortured, castrated, and executed because I hate them so much. Hell, maybe I'd bring back the brazen bull to be used exclusively on rapists.

And don't we already have a thread where this was thoroughly discussed? I'm sure End has it somewhere.

What does that have to do with anything?

Yes, almost every time and I think it's bullshit. If you met a woman in a bar/club that is 18+ entry (or even 21+) and she tells you she is over 18 (or whatever) and shows an ID to prove it, the man who has sex with her had a valid reason to believe that she is as old as she said. Clearly it was enough for her to get inside in the first place. If anything, the liability should fall on the bar/club itself for not protecting it's clientele as well as the underage girl involved. Even if the bar/club scenario isn't involved, the same logic would still apply. If the man legitimately believes that she is the age she claims she is, it should fall on the girl and her parents. It's unjust to lock up and place these men on a watch list for them being mislead by someone like this. It ruins lives.
If they were clever enough to fake their death and successfully frame me, I'd assume that they have a new identity that they've grown into in the last 20 years. No, I wouldn't kill this person unless I had nothing better to do with my life.
I'm not sure. There are plenty of laws in the books that aren't enforced anymore (like eating oranges in the bathtub or stopping a child from playing in a puddle of water), I'd imagine this being no different. I don't think police really prioritize prostitution as well as they should. We need to get these whores and/or slaves off our streets.

What you're describing is an escort. Prostitution is, by definition, sex in exchange for money. No sex, no crime.
As far as the second part goes, I don't think it would be illegal to do that, but it could vary depending on the circumstances. Making an amateur film in and of itself isn't illegal.

Terrible analogy. A blonde and brunette can have only hair color as being the trait that sets them apart. Not a different set of genitalia.
Is it a curse word?! on 6/26/2017 12:13:50 PM
Almost anything in the lower grade levels can be seen as a curse word. I once called a kid a "freak" and the teacher said it was a swear.
