Ban Porn & Save Our Children From Rape.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000!

As citizens of India who want to see rape cases decrease, please sign this petition to BAN PORNOGRAPHY.

We have seen an escalation of rape cases, the sadism and sexual deviance and violence has exponentially increased. Have you ever wondered how Pornography is directly responsible for this increase?

Even as we battle the culture of rape and attitudes of normalcy towards rape, addressing it holistically is critical. As the government amends laws to make it more stringent, bring awareness and decrease the time taken for the investigation and trial. We have not addressed PORN which is a critical cause for the rise in number of rape cases.

Porn is just a product, it is manufactured and distributed and sold, and therefore it should be banned just like any other harmful substance. Making hard-core porn something to be quested after in dark corners would dramatically reduce its pedagogical role, its cultural normalcy, its power over libidos everywhere.

Dr. Dolf Zillman and Dr. Jennings Bryant showed that continued exposure to pornography had serious adverse effects on beliefs about sexuality in general and on attitudes toward women in particular. They also found that pornography desensitizes people to rape as a criminal offense and that massive exposure to pornography encourages a desire for increasingly deviant materials that depict violence (such as sadomasochism and rape).

Police officers in the US have seen the impact pornography has had on serial murderers. In fact, pornography consumption is one of the most common profile characteristics of serial murderers and rapists.

In his introduction to a reprint of the Final Report of the Attorney General's Commission on Pornography, columnist Michael McManus noted that

The FBI interviewed two dozen sex murderers in prison who had killed multiple numbers of times. Some eighty-one percent said their biggest sexual interest was in reading pornography. They acted out sex fantasies on real people. For example, Arthur Gary Bishop, convicted of sexually abusing and killing five young boys said, `If pornographic material would have been unavailable to me in my early states, it is most probable that my sexual activities would not have escalated to the degree they did.' He said pornography's impact on him was `devastating. . . . I am a homosexual pedophile convicted of murder, and pornography was a determining factor in my downfall.'"

For the safety of our children, to protect them from the sexual abuse and rape, I urge you to sign and ask your family, friends and colleagues to sign.
