One response to “In the News

    Having just read, “Kids for Sale: Look but Don’t Touch”, I am struck by the irony of the title. If, as stated by Mr. Newbury, he knew that some of his clients were “looking at the pictures sexually” while viewing his website, could a case not be made that he was creating online erotica? Would he then not be guilty of pandering of obscenity since he paid this eleven year-old to appear on his website? Is he not “advertising” the life of a young girl for the pruient interests of his customers? Whether the pandering takes place face-to-face or via an electronic media it does not change the scope of the act.

    These parents cannot be living in a bubble. The fact that they “pretend” that it is all innocent does not change the common understanding that the people who are paying (the optimum word is PAYING) for these websites are not interested in how a 16 year old girl combs her hair. They see the dollars signs and they rationalize their acceptance. They are selling the images and lives of their children and represent a new generation of procurer–the electronic pimp.
