You know nothing about my parents, yet you're making statements that you wouldn't know for sure unless you knew them, which is ASSUMING. You keep avoiding the points I make to waste your time attacking me as a person. More power to you. I don't have the audacity to do such a thing.

Oh God. This has given me a some insight as to what I have to look forward to when my twins get older. I'm not looking forward to it. No personal computer for them...check.

One thing that you really can't get around is the e-mail thing. If they have an e-mail account chances are they will get porn mail. Kids pretty much have to destroy at least one computer to realize maybe it's best to avoid those places.

You resorting to attributing my view to bad parenting, which is ridiculous. Censoring doesn't work. Point blank. And it's a normal thing. I don't say that because of bad parenting. I say that because it's the truth. It's better to get a firsthand response (a male who has gone through those years) than a secondhand (parents who just have sons that do it). I'm very straight to the point. Since you're resorting to making assumptions about my parents and next it'll probably be about my own morality, I will just leave this thread alone.

I hope you got some lessons about consistency as well as the evils of self-righteousness from your parents. If you did, then right about now would be the time to use them.

Nice, once again you refuse to address what is stated. It's whatever. I'm done.

I've read a really interesting novel called "Porn Nation," written by a recoving "sex-addict" and Christian author. It's half autobiographical and the other parts about a variety of other topics related to modern day pop culture.

One of them was talking about chemicals in the brain, and how one that is produced when we get "stimulated" (dopamine?) can have negative effects if experienced enough. Another chemical's production (oxycontin?) was supposed to be impaired if we became over-stimulated by dopamine. The author goes into a bit of detail how dopamine works and is often experienced as well as oxycontin. Oxycontin (I think) is supposed to be a chemical involved in "bonding", like the feeling one might get from hugging a loved one, or (as the author put it) an enviromentalist hugging a tree.

Don't worry, some among us are destined to never "get it". It makes life easier for those that do

Buy him his own computer and let that be his computer to use for entertainment purposes. I don't understand why parents think they're acting in their children's best interest by trying to censor what they see, watch on tv, or listen to. It's stupid and it doesn't accomplish anything. Parents should be focusing on more important things, like making sure their children will do good in life. Whether they watch explicit things or not has nothing to do with that. Be a parent. Not an authoritarian.

Why, because maybe YOU are a minor yourself? Your harsh judgment against the OP and your rather immature view of what parenting entails says a lot. Give yourself another 10 years and a couple of daughters and I think you'll feel differently.
