Petition Culture Secretary: No more restrictions on internet porn

More details

Those who seek to outlaw rape porn and other "extreme" porn genres are missing the point that the scenarios being depicted are ACTED OUT - NOT REAL.
It is wrong to insult the intelligence of all adults by claiming (in so many words) that exposure to a particular image is "guaranteed" to trigger destructive/violent behavior in previously "sane / law abiding people" - because that is non-scientific superstitious nonsense.
It is wrong to seek to impose unacceptable limitations on freedom of expression.
A legal system that does not distinguish fact from fiction, and which assumes everyone else is incapable of doing so, has no place in a civilised society.
