The UK is starting to make mandatory ID checks for p*rn sites. Thoughts and opinions?

I came across this article: https://live.engadget.com/2018/03/12/uk-delays-porn-age-verification/
And it just struck me as odd, that the government is now policing porn of all things. What are you opinions on this? do you agree or disagree?

personally I think it’s a shitty precedent. This could open up and be a gateway into more, bigger things. There could be an argument that “oh porn is bad protect the kids!!1!!1!”, but wouldn’t that fall under parents being responsible, and not the government regulating it? the moment the government deems what is morally right and wrong (to a degree) is a pathway to tyranny.

and whatever the uk, does the u.s. follows right after so this could effect us too lmao.

Although I don’t watch porn, I don’t think it needs to be regulated. It’s just porn lol.

That’s the funniest thing i’ve ever heard wtf

porn? whats that lmao never heard of that ha…haha…haaa… nervous laughter

the thing is that all these people in the government don’t understand that it is virtually impossible to control something in the internet concerning age. People will use vpns, maybe even tor network or they just use a site that’s registered outside of the uk.

Fake age type beat💀

I think that’s bullshit. Porn can be a very healthy part of sexuality, even for teens. Though there is a lot about porn I do not like and think it can skew expectations, but having no outlet can lead to frustration or irresponsible behavior.

Don’t flatter yourself :joy:

Don’t know where you got the facts about it being beneficial from but that’s total bullshit. There’s nothing good about porn probably the reason why men degrade women more and see them as objects but since you don’t care it’s fine
