A generation of youngsters may be developing a skewed view of sex from pornography, a court has heard, after a 12-year-old schoolboy raped and sexually assaulted a younger girl after copying a hardcore film he watched on the internet.
And of course we hear that this is just the tip of the iceberg, this is happening all the time and no one reports it and absolutely we must have an opt in system to be allowed to watch porno on the web.
The two problems being: OK, where is that iceberg? And, please show us the evidence that underage sex (whether assaults or consensual) is more prevalent now than it was before internet pron.
After all, imposing limits on free specch (and yes, that is what this is) is a serious matter and worthy of serious consideration and serious evidence.
Which standard references to icebergs and everyone’s doing it extrapolated from one single case might not quite meet.
