It’s About Time…


It doesn’t matter if you are for porn or against it, this just makes sense.  I don’t care what the porn industry says about being unfairly segregated.  I want to know that it’ll be easy to at least spot something that is going to affect my child’s time on the internet.

I know that the .XXX domain isn’t going to happen overnight and there will be a lot of companies and adult sites that won’t want to switch, or simply won’t switch, but I’m sorry, when you’ve got kids running around these days that know how to get a hold of a credit card number (whether it be legal or not), it’s just the right thing to do.  It’ll make the parents job just a little bit easier in helping to stop some of the idiocy that’s going on any more.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a prude.  I understand that people want it and I also understand that the subject is open to interpretation and at least some what protected under the Constitution, but…Let’s be serious here.  Aren’t you at least a little bit happy that in the future, porn will most likely have to follow the rules just like everyone else is supposed to?

Let’s face it, kids are exposed to more and more every day.  The news alone is bad enough to give kids (and anyone actually) access to porn, violence, drug, you name it content.  No, it’s not full frontal nudity, no it’s not full on swearing or blatant sex, but even the clothes that some of the women anchors wear on these ‘news’ programs reveals enough skin to qualify for PG13 ratings.

Then there’s the ‘tween’ movies such as Twilight, and half the music videos and songs out there.  Don’t even get me started on that junk.

Head on over to Geek.com and check out the article and video.

ICANN, the organization that oversees the administration of the Internet’s domain name system, has approved the hotly-debated .xxx top level domain for adult sites.

ICANN’s board of directors approved the creation of the .xxx domain when the organization met on Friday in Brussels. The move comes ten years after the domain was first proposed, making the decision one of the longest-debated in ICANN’s history.

Sections of the adult content industry as well as religious and conservative groups have lobbied against the creation of a domain for adult content, although for different reasons. Porn-pushers feel that their sites will be unfairly segregated if forced to move to the .xxx domain, whereas religious and conservative types feel the creation of an adult domain panders to an industry which should not exist at all. Proponents of the new domain believe that it will offer more protection to children and make it simpler to restrict access to pornography and other adult content.
