New Zealand man Ronald Clark was sentenced to three months in jail for possession of pornography featuring cartoon fantasy creatures having sex. Clark, who was previously convicted of assaulting a teenage boy, claimed that the salacious materials were of “pixies and trolls” that “you knew at a glance weren’t human.” However, the cartoon characters in the porn were young elves and pixies, which led to concerns from an anti-child pornography group that the images were linked to child sexual abuse. As philosophy professor Grant Tavinor put it:

“The worry is that viewing or distributing such images could support the sexual exploitation of children even if the production of the images did not actually involve the exploitation of any children. It’s not enough that no one was harmed in the making of the videos, the law takes a protective role and says there are some things we just don’t want circulating in society …The ways a person entertains [himself] is not morally negligible. But for the purposes of law it is probably important to distinguish between these because convicting someone for their moral views is very dangerous.”

What do you think? Should it be illegal to watch certain kinds of porn or is that taking it too far? [Stuff]
