let us then be the change we want to see in the world

we live in a porn saturated culture that is conditioning young boys into a callous version of masculinity, from a young age they are seeing women presented as a commodity, as an object to serve sexual desires and nothing else, this detaches women in their mind from being a human being. We see these ideas portrayed constantly in all forms of media and advertising, through the depiction of women in movies, television shows, video games, lyrics in songs, magazines etc... this is harming the healthy sexual development of boys and is also harming the image and identity that develops in girls. We as a society have the responsibility to protect children, and to do the best we can to create a better world for those who will follow after us. Porn doesn't just harm your own body, mind and soul. It also fuels and supports the sex industry, which is increasingly exploiting children. There is absolutely no need for an economy that has to be built on the exploitation of children. The issue of porn is no longer a "grown ups" topic, this is a child rights issue, this is child abuse and we must act on this!
