CNN is reporting that 125 people have been arrested in an Internet infant porn investigation. Well, that's the headline the RSS feed gave, at any rate. Turns out that the website showed "children as young as infants engaged in sexual activities with adults."

First, EEWWWWWW! Infants? Where are the boobies? Half of the fun of porn is when both parties appear to want to have and enjoy sex. How can an infant want to have sex, much less enjoy it?

Second, the investigation focused on an unnamed web site that these people subscribed to! A site that warned them that "subscribing to the site was illegal and urged them to be discreet." Folks, pay attention to the mistakes of Pete Townsend! He was busted, a couple of years ago, for giving his credit card (!?) to a child porn site. He claimed it was for research. Earlier this year, he had to pull a short story from his site because it described sex between two teens. (Which brings up the question, if describing two teens having sex is child porn, what about teen comedy movies that spend the entire time focusing on teen sex?)

Third, "such pornography sites typically rake in $2 million per month." Wow! That's oil company type bucks. You'd think Congress would be all for it! Oops. Sorry, Mr. Foley.

Great point.

As far as your oil company analogy goes, do you think there will be comparable outrage from our esteemed, elected representatives?

Nah, probably not. Afterall, buying and selling oil is a legal activity worthy of their deepest scrutiny, and six month olds can't vote.
