Oprah – Porn Ain't What it Used to Be

ABDEBA19-6ACD-488D-AA93-2BE4FD1B4E35.jpg

Today Oprah issues an urgent call to her viewers to take action against child predators in an all-new episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” “What you are going to see is going to shock you to the core, but I’m asking you to please not turn away because this is happening in our country, to our children, in the United States every day,” says Winfrey.

During the episode, Oprah implores viewers to help put a stop to child predators by contacting their Senators in support of U.S. Senate Bill 1738. Called the PROTECT Our Children Act, U.S. Senate Bill 1738 has bipartisan support and is currently before the U.S. Senate. Oprah.com will feature information and links to connect viewers with their Senators.

Seriously, I don’t want to watch this show. I know I will be beyond disturbed.

Reading a mommy blog one day I clicked a link that said, “Sex Stuff.” As it was a mommy blog I figured it was an innocuous link to instructions on “the cat position” or ways to trick my husband into getting off the computer to do it more.

What I found was an extensive free pornography web that has disturbed me in a profound way ever since. It was all free. It all involved children and teenagers and it all tied sex to violence. A great deal of it was written in the first person of the victim professing how much they loved the heinous acts being done to them.

Porn ain’t what it used to be.

Today’s pornography is not innocuous photos of consenting adults having sex.

America we have a problem. It begins with our laws and making excuses for people who have no interest in controlling themselves. “He didn’t mean it, he’s a good guy except, but I’ve known him my whole life and the devil must have possessed him, she came onto him and he couldn’t help himself.” You’ve heard the lines, maybe you’ve said the lines, that excuse a 40-year-old man from preying on a 12-year-old child because she has budding breasts.

Well, now our children are budding breasts at 8, 9 and 10 and sometimes younger.

Are we, as a society, just going to keep reducing the age of “he couldn’t help himself” to apply to elementary and primary school children who have no control over early puberty, which now affects half our girls? Or are we going to rear up like Mother Lionesses and protect our young?

Every year I see more families retreat inside their homes and create what is essentially their own self-made prisons.

They stop associating with their neighbors, they no longer meet new people, they quit going to school, they don’t let their children play outside anymore, they don’t let their kids ride bikes down the street, and slumber parties are out. I vacillate between thinking they are the only people with any damn sense to thinking they might have gone over the edge into crazy. My opinion of them is generally related to whether I have recent seen a show like Oprah’s today or watched the news.

We’re living in a society where every male is a suspect from fathers to brothers to grandparents to uncles to cousins to neighbors to friends’ dads.

Why?

Because we don’t have the integrity or the guts to put the people who are violating our young in prison and not let them out again.

In effect – we’re creating our own prisons inside our houses because we don’t feel its “fair” to put sexual predators in prison for life.

Not a good choice America. Change your mind. Watch the show and join me in sending letters to our representatives to pass Senate Bill 1738 – PROTECT Our Children Act.

PROTECT would:

* Authorize over $320 million over the next five years in desperately needed funding for law enforcement to investigate child exploitation.

* Mandate that child rescue be a top priority for law enforcement receiving federal funding.

* Allocate funds for high-tech computer software that can track down Internet predators.

Oh and if you think it’s not political – you’re mistaken.

Grier Weeks, Executive Director of the National Association to Protect Children, testifies before Congress on Oct. 17, 2007. Weeks discusses the U.S. government’s failure to act on information that could interdict hundreds of thousands of sexual predators and rescue hundreds of thousands of children.

“Now, the 110th Congress has the opportunity to do what the 109th, and this administration, did not: Fight back. Pay what it costs. Disrupt this market. Go get these children.”

The Republican Congress and George W. Bush’s administration failed to act. The FBI representative in the below video says their priorities were International Terrorism.

What it, the FBI and the Republican Administration who sets the FBI’s agenda for the lat 8 years that this evil problem has grown exponentially, failed to recognize is the mass exploitation of children in violent pornography IS internal TERRORISM.

Some thing are just worth paying taxes for.

    I watched Oprah with my 13 year old daughter yesterday — I wanted her to know!

    So sad, but — protecting her has to be above all.

    I need to go throw up now.

    Yuck!

    By the way, I’m glad you used the sentence “Some things are just worth paying taxes for.” I think around election time people need to be reminded that we don’t pay taxes because someone wants to steal all our hard-earned money for absolutely no reason. We pay taxes to guarantee we have a vast array of services, some of which protect us. I would gladly pay more taxes for even more services!

    Protecting our kids from heinous crimes, so we can let them pay outside and have unmolested childhoods without terrible fear?

    Who wouldn’t pay taxes for that?

    Republicans evidently. This bill was before Congress last year and the Republican Congress didn’t pass it.

    The FBI has several thousand investigators for outside terrorism while there are 300,000 known sexual predators terrorizing us right here in our own country. Says Bush won’t give them the money to arrest and prosecute them.

    Why are parent’s not letting their kids play outside or ride their bikes or visit their friends?

    Because we’re allowing 300,000 terrorists to make us prisoners in our own homes. Fearful of our neighbors and families.

    Being blown up or bombed by foreign terrorists isn’t having the same fearful impact on our daily lives as these 300,000 known sexual predators are.

    It’s the wrong priority and it’s the wrong reason to reduce taxes.
