Pornography is leading to the sexualisation of children, a parenting expert has said.
Writing in the Daily Mail, author and concerned mother Tania Carey said that the growing amount of pornography involving young people means children are being stared at, followed and sexually harassed in the street.
She has written two books about the impact of pornography on young girls, and said she is frustrated that society’s attitude to objectifying women has not moved on since the 1980s.Read More
Police say Michael Cooper of Germantown, Maryland, approached women on social media and dating apps under the pseudonym “Rebecca Lattimore.” Through online conversations, Cooper would “slowly coax them to send nude photos and videos,” according to a recent article in the Washington Post.
Following this, he’d disclose the truth, that he was “actually a dude,” and demand the women have sex with him or he would send their compromising media to pornography sites, family members of the women, friends, and co-workers. That’s just the beginning of this bizarre story. Ultimately, it’s sadly emblematic of an American culture that has normalized hyper-sexuality to the point that it is now ravaging our society.Read More
The sexual exploitation of women and children has likely increased amid the COVID-19 pandemic, experts say.
Groups such as Polaris and International Justice Mission work to fight human trafficking and to free the estimated 40 million victims of modern-day slavery. Their work has not slowed down during the global pandemic.
Sadly, experts say, the virus is leading to an increase in violence against women and children.
“Buyers are getting more violent, more aggressive, trying to pay less,” Robert Beiser, strategic initiatives director at Polaris, told the Daily Signal in a phone interview.
As investigative journalist Amy Fine Collins notes, “It’s become more lucrative and much safer to sell malleable teens than drugs or guns. A pound of heroin or an AK-47 can be retailed once, but a young girl can be sold 10 to 15 times a day—and a ‘righteous’ pimp confiscates 100 percent of her earnings.”Read More
“If they look at porn, I would look at the porn with them that one time and go, ‘They’re performing.’ … I’d sit there with them like you’re in school and go, ‘This is what’s going on,’” Wentworth said when asked about what to do about kids who watch pornography.Read More
July 22, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — On July 2, socialite Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested by the FBI in Bradford, New Hampshire. Maxwell was the longtime girlfriend of billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein, who allegedly killed himself in prison last year, where he was awaiting trial on charges of sex-trafficking. Maxwell, who purportedly enabled Epstein’s sexual abuse of minors and procured young girls for him, has now also been charged with having “assisted, facilitated, and contributed” to the sexual abuse of underage girls. Many powerful men — including Prince Andrew, who resigned from royal duties over his relationship with Epstein, and Bill Clinton, who is alleged to have had an affair with Maxwell — are likely very worried about what Maxwell will reveal.Read More
A team of Department of Homeland Security and IRS criminal investigators worked for months to find the source of a child pornography enterprise on the dark web.

Ghislaine Maxwell’s recent arrest on charges of luring underage girls for sexual exploitation by Jeffrey Epstein has many feeling justice is just around the corner for a number of evil people.
However, if we as a society are so disturbed by the actions of Epstein, Miss Maxwell and an untold number of others, then why are we allowing America’s public schools to groom our children to be sexualized?Read More
A high debt, joblessness and ill health prompted a daily wage labourer to try to get his two minor daughters married off, thinking he would not need to spend money for arranging a feast for guests due to the lockdown.Read More
July 15, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — The Florida attorney general launched an investigation into a Planned Parenthood facility that neglected to follow state reporting laws, thus facilitating sex-trafficking. This, among other recent stories, has pushed sex-trafficking into the spotlight of many news stories.

July 14, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – Last week, I was chatting with one of my friends who has done a lot of work as an anti-porn educator. One of the things we’ve often discussed is how pornography has made puberty and dating so much more difficult for girls. Sexual violence now infuses sexual interactions as a matter of course, and both of us have had young people—especially young girls—ask us after anti-porn presentations if the demands of their boyfriends are “okay” or if they can refuse to engage in the porn-inspired activities being demanded of them. Many of them have trouble distinguishing between sexual assault and a normal sexual experience. These conversations, by the way, are generally taking place at Christian schools.Read More
The Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday unanimously advanced a bill tying legal protections for online platforms to efforts to combat child sexual abuse material.
The Eliminating Abusive and Rampant Neglect of Interactive Technologies (EARN IT) Act would amend Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act to allow federal and state claims against online companies that host child exploitation content.Read More
