    Good grief! I cannot believe the draconian, puritanical views of those who have responded. All I was saying with my earlier comment is that these sites can be professionally done in good taste and look much more like a summer catalog than some site for perverts.
    You drew some rather ridiculous comparators in some of your earlier opines. There is nothing draconian nor puritanical about my views. Any website (regardless of how far you go to try to draw a comparison, you keep going back to 'the web') that has to raise the question of "is this decent or not?", most likely is not! It may be, but I'd bet there's a 99.98% chance it isn't!

    Gigirle stated it rather well!


    Correction, she stated it VERY well!!!

    So it's the format that bothers you? If it's on the web it's immediately suspect in your view? Why? I want specifics here. All I've seen so far is generalities and non specific arguments. Without specifics for why you feel the way you feel, I'm left with the impression that you don't have any. Other than these sites make you uncomfortable, and thus should be made to go away. By "These sites" I'm speaking of sites where no sexual activity is occurring, they just feature young girls wearing all manner of clothing.

    ...and the purpose of them doing that would be?

    So there it is. The immediate assumption that this type of site's sole purpose is to attract perverts. What if it isn't? What then?

    I'm simply asking you what the purpose of the site would be.

    It took you nearly twenty minutes to come up with something that avoided the question.

    The purpose would be to provide a way for these girls to put their portfolios up on the net in the hope of getting into some sort of an ad. Our responsibility would be to help make sure that this was as safe an activity for them as possible. Not to just arbitrarily disallow such activities because of what some people might be thinking.

    Oh, and you did a find job of deflecting my question as well.

    Now see, that wasn't such a hard question.

    I didn't have enough information to answer your questions, that is why I asked mine.

    There are several issues that bother people. If you research this site for the Webe Web thread, you will see what those issues are. I don't want to regurgitate them again.


    If it's on the web it's immediately suspect in your view?
    I don't see where anyone stated that. Perhaps the sites that have crossed the line have made people skeptical as to what the true purpose of these sites are, or that some sites are hiding behind an excuse that this is benefitting the child while others see it as exploiting them.

    Why?
    If you look into the other thread, all of this has been discussed. You will find what that site did wrong and why it was rightfully shut down.

    Dramamine...can I ask you to put an age group specific to the group that you are refering to as being okay to post on the internet.

    These children you are refering to need to be in school getting their education not putting their "portfolios" on the net with hopes to be the next top model. They are not legally allowed to have sex in most states who why would you put them in a situation to exploit their sexual being? For the purpose of selling clothes?

    Don't get me wrong, I believe that it's your body. If my 18 yr old came home and said she wanted to do a layout for playboy, I would support her 110%. We are not talking about adults, we are talking about children.

    Who are you refering to when you say:
    Our responsibility would be to help make sure that this was as safe an activity for them as possible.
    Who is the our?

    Happy trails, I have read the webe web thread, and in that case, they certainly seemed to have exploited those girls. As to the question of if it's actually pornography, the courts must decide that.

    gigirle, Age is not relevant to my argument. I simply contend that if these girls wish to participate in an activity such as this, then we (society) need to do what we can to make this activity as safe as possible for them. That means closely monitoring the sites for content and requiring any questionable photos to be removed. failing that, the sites get shut down. I honestly cannot see a problem with such a site if they are playing by the rules, and not pushing the limits of what is or is not legal.

    Sounds like somebody has a little crush on Gigirle.

    But yeah, these "child model sites" are only visited by pedophiles. And pedophiles need a good Texas hangin'!!!
