'Campaigners fear children as young as 11 are becoming addicted to obscene online material, which they can access freely through web-enabled mobile phones or computers.'

That's a pretty ridiculous thing to say, this is another example of lazy parents not taking the responsibility to parent their own children themselves.

Simple solution, set up a web blocker (Oh no, that would require making an effort)...Or better yet, if you can't handle the responsibility of parenting then don't have children.

"Shy Keenan, who founded paedophile victim support group Phoenix Chief Advocates with Mrs Payne (www.thephoenixpost.com), added that sex crime victims often said that their attackers were influenced by pornography.

Bullshit. It's the same backwards logic that makes these people believe that violent crimes occur because of the influence of games. Yes, violent people probably play violent games, and paedophiles will probably watch child pornography, but that doesn't mean they were influenced by it. Instead, they watched/played it because that's who they are.

Why is society giving these people an excuse for their actions, and putting it on something else than the person? Owning a violent game does not make you a criminal, owning child pornography does not make you a child abuser and watching Spiderman and Batman does not make you a superhero.

There is no excuse for their deeds, and the whole idea that the government must protect the children from pornography is idiotic. That's the job of the parents, and it's incredibly easy for them to prevent a child from accidentily stumbling upon it. Truth is, when puberty hits kids will look this stuff up, and they will find it of they are determined, regardless of what you do. This isn't a problem, there's no "corruption", as that's what puberty does perfectly well on its own.

I don't really understand societies obsession about protecting children from a bunch of boobs and the perfectly natural act of sex. Sex education is far more important, and will go much further into protecting these kids from harm.
