Supreme Court Legalizes Virtual Child Porn: 6-3

On April 18, 2002, the Supreme Court overturned a ban on “virtual child pornography” passed by Congress six years ago. This landmark decision reaffirms our First Amendment right to freely express ideas. Now artistically significant suggestions of underage sex are safe from broadly worded obscenity laws.

So just what is “virtual” child pornography? Nowadays, computer-generated images can be used to convey the impression of minors engaged in sexual activity with startling realism. Images such as the one to the right are nearly indistinguishable from pictures of actual children.

Some may find this image offensive, but remember: it’s constitutionally protected. Besides, virtual child porn is not wrong unless you jack off to it. They aren’t real children, so the only harm is if you’re actually a pervert.
