Petition Closed

Please help to stop a petition on Care2 in which viewing child porns is called a “victimless crime“.
Furthermore the author of the disgusting petition explains that child porn viewers „have never participated in any harmful action against children“! This is not only a zynical lie, it is a mockery and insult of all victims and their families.

Contrary to the statements of the petitoner child porn viewers are directly responsible for child abuse!
Because a person viewing child porns is creating a demand for persons that produce them. Thus the consumer of child porns is complicit in that harm. He is complicit in the terrible crime of children being forced into something that make them suffering for the rest of their this way destroyed lifes. Each child shown in child porns was gravely hurt mentally, spiritually and quite probably physically. The fact that the child porn owner/viewer doesn´t physically lay hands on them is immaterial. He´s responsibe for that child abuse, because he creates a demand for that pictures by buying and downloading them.

Therefore a petitioner that calls child porn viewing „a victimless crime“ and telling the audience that this is no participating in any harmful action against children, is trivializing this heinous crime and should be banned from a petitionsite as well as his petition.

I understand that the goal of that questionable petition is only to advocate against the fact that a
26-year old man has been sentenced for life for posessing child porns, that show boys age 6 to 12 engaged in sexual activity with adults and each other. And I accept that the petitioner is questioning the sentencing guidlines, because this is his right.
But it doesn´t give him the right to trivialize the crime of viewing child porns by calling it „a victimless crime“ and by saying untrue things like „downloading and viewing child porn doesn´t promote child abuse anymore than viewing a murder or a car accident promotes“ .... !
Because thus he´s denying the fact that the child porns (that the consumers create the demand for) are the direct result of child abuse!!

No serious website, and especially no petitionsite, should allow anybody to publish statements like that. Unfortunately Care2 does !
Several members of the community have reported that petition and explained why it should be removed or at least edited.
Care2 doesn´t agree, saying the petitioner is just questioning the sentencing guidlines for child porns. Thus Care2 ignores all the other mentioned horrible statements of that petition that trivializes consuming child porns big time.

If you want to let the responsibles of Care2 know, that viewing child porns isn´t a victimless crime please sign! Thank you.
